With Spring just around the corner, this is a time of year many of us will be dusting away the winter cobwebs and giving our homes a real spring clean. A really good way to bring in that spring feel is to open up all of the windows on a warm day to get rid of any stale air, GP’s recommend we should do this for a few minutes everyday throughout the winter months, to stop germs from building up in a centrally heated environment.


Here are our top spring cleaning tips:

1.Bring extra natural light into your home by cleaning the windows. Clean curtains and nets. The best way to clean windows is by using white vinegar and water, 1 to 5 parts, spray onto your window, clean with one rag and buff with another.

2.Clean your walls, use a sponge and some soapy water and gently rub off any marks, sugar soap is really good too. If you would like to clean light switches then use a damp cloth or a cleaning wipe.

3.Move around your furniture to properly vacuum your skirt boards, underneath sofas, chairs and so fourth, this will also stop any moth infestations.

4.The best way to clean a leather sofa is with washing up liquid and water, brush the leather in a circular movement, being careful not to use to much water and then dry off with a towel – avoiding placing your sofa near a heat source such as a radiator or sunlight will stop the leather from drying out.

5.If you have carpets and rugs in your homes this is a really good time of year to get them professionally cleaned.

6.Use bi-carbonate soda and water to clean your fridge – dab your cloth into bi-carb and then rinse off with water – this will remove any nasty odors too.

7.If your microwave has caked on dirt, difficult to remove, just put half a lemon or lime cook on full power for 20 seconds and leave it inside for a couple of hours – remove the lemon and then just wipe out with a cloth.
