Winter is long over, days are getting longer, Who wants to spend their time inside cleaning? NO ONE! Get pumped up and finish the dirty work quicker with Steve’s top 5 cleaning songs & tips!

. . .


1. Cleaning Out My Closet - Eminem

Before putting on those green cleaning gloves, let’s clear some space. I’m talking about all those boxes collecting dust in the garage, I’m talking about those psychedelic shirts Grandma bought a few years ago for your birthday.  Start with any damaged, torn or shirts simply not fitting due to all those yummy winter time pies at mums house! The easiest one, though, is to say goodbye to anything you haven’t worn in the last 6-12 months . . . *Throws “Sun’s Out, Guns Out” singlet Away . .

Tip: Donate unwanted items to a local charity and help the less fortunate.


2. Another One Bites The Dust – Queen

There is nothing worse on a Monday morning than walking past that room you never finished on the weekend. To avoid pulling all your hair out in frustration, start your spring clean by doing one room at a time. Work from the top down, inside to outside - the satisfaction at finishing a job and admiring those shiny new bench tops will spur you on to get the next job done.

Tip: Dust first before mopping or sweeping floors.


3. Window To The Sky – Kim Churchill

Hello spring sunshine, let’s get outside and bask in it (remember sunscreen). Now is the time to wash the outside of the windows to remove spots and smudges you don’t normally have time to do. This job is perfectly done with a Pina Colada in one hand!

Tip: Choose an overcast day or late in the evening to ensure the sun won’t dry the cleanser before you are done wiping.


No Scrubs - TLC

After a winter of Sunday roasts, it’s time to chip all of that built up food off the inside of the oven. Once this is done get some ammonia, a tiny bit of baking soda and some white vinegar drops. Apply and watch it bubble away the leftover food then simply wipe off with a sponge – no need to scrub!

Tip: The stove and oven area is the greasiest part to clean in the kitchen so start with the other parts and work your way back so you don’t spread the grease around.


So Fresh, So Clean - Outkast

When life gives you lemons . . . . Use them to clean! Lemons are extremely helpful for cleaning (+ Lemonade of course). Use them to polish up and clean chrome fittings, scrub your cutting boards and let them sit for 20 minutes to cut grease and grime, or throw them in with your whites while they soak to keep them smelling fresh.

Tip: Tired of cleaning? Spray lemon juice near the front door so your partner thinks you have cleaned all day.
