Cleaning is easy with everyday items and activities

    You’ve just had a great Thanksgiving feast with family and friends.  But, it won’t be long till everyone gathers for Christmas.  If you need to clean your house, but don’t have a lot of time, don’t panic!  The Powell Group at Keller Williams of the Western Upstate of South Carolina has some great suggestion to help you clean quickly.

    Let’s start high up near the ceiling.  Your ceiling fan helps keep your house cool and spreads the air around.  But, if the blades get dusty, you’ll be spreading the dust too.  While you could buy cleaning items at the store, that can get expensive.  Instead, you can put a pillowcase over each blade and wipe it down.  Afterward, put the pillowcase in the washer.  You’re done!  The pillowcase will be clean soon and your fan is as good as new.

    Next, do you have old socks or a rag?  Use them to wipe your blinds and curtains.  Just a little water will make it wet enough to absorb all of the dirt and dust that will add up before you know it.

    Those of you with babies already have something that can help clean your furniture.  Baby wipes are a surprisingly useful tool that helps wipe down fabrics on your couch and many other pieces of furniture.  However, make sure you use baby wipes and not other cleaning wipes that can contain bleach.

    Lastly, a kid’s favorite activity may just be the best cleaning tool of all.  Many kids love to jump on their bed.  What you may not realize is that doing so will bring up a lot of dirt and dust from inside the mattress.  Once they’re done, use your vacuum to suck it all up.  Your kids will have fun, and your mattresses will be clean.

    The Powell Group encourages you to explore different ways to clean your house on a budget.  Our team members can point you toward all the resources to help you get your house clean in no time.
