Spring is not the only season of the year it pays to clean and organize your home. Fall is a great time to put aside your summer clothes, decorations, etc. and start figuring out where you tossed your winter attire, umbrellas and everything else.

These cleaning tips here will help get you prepared for the cold, yet short winter days when there never seems to be enough time to get things done.

Winterizing Your Kitchen

Apart from regular maintenance, this is the time to get rid of all the cans and bottles that have taken up place under the sink, remove and clean the ceiling fixtures, replace the shelf liners and wash the curtains. This is also a perfect time to clean the following appliances:

●     Dishwasher

The dishwasher which sole purpose is to get things clean can also get dirty. You can use baking soda and a sponge to wipe it down. If there are some stubborn stains, use a plastic scrubber.

●     Stove

If you don't like stove cleaning and stove cleaners, you can think about placing a cup of ammonia in a ceramic dish in the oven overnight or heat the oven to warm to ease the process. Be sure to open all windows and don't forget to wear gloves. You can clean the oven with baking soda too.

●     Refrigerator

Remove all the products, as well as the trays, bins, racks and shelves. Wash everything with an antibacterial cleaner. Before you put the products back, check their expiration date. Keep your refrigerator smell sweet by putting an open box of baking soda on one of the shelves.

Beat Bugs and Pollen

During the cold days we stay at our homes more, and while we are drinking tea inside, we are trapping mold, dander and dust that can make us sick. So, before the cold days arrive make sure that you get your home as clean as you can:

  • Air Conditioner/Heater - Clean or change the filter and repeat the process every month through the winter.
  • Bedding - Wash all bedding. I advise you to use very hot water to kill bacteria or dust mites.
  • Drapes and Blinds - Remove the non-wood blinds and wash them out using a mild soap. Use the hose to rinse off the soap and let them dry. Clean the wood blinds with a mild cleaning solution. Wash the drapes.
  • Carpets - Change your vacuum cleaner bag and when vacuum, go over each area multiple times.

Clean the Roof Gutters

Poor roof gutter maintenance can result in leaks, and problems with doors and windows. The easiest way to clean the gutters is the day after a light rain. If your house have a low sloping roof, you may be able to use a leaf blower as well.
