Late Summer Home Cleaning Tips
Updated: Feb 28
With summer on its last legs, the time to stow away all seasonal items is upon us. By organizing and cleaning your summer gear, you can ensure everything is in good working order come next year. The good news is that a late-summer cleanup doesn’t have to be as intense as spring cleaning. Here are some tips to help start cleaning up:
Wash Your Outdoor Pillows: wash them with warm water and be sparing with the detergent. Then allow them to air-dry. If your pillows have stains, you can spot-treat those with a stain cleaner prior to washing.
Launder Your Beach Towels: pop these beach towels into the washer and choose hot water if the fabric can withstand it. Remember to add a dollop of softener to the load.
Scrub the Grill: to scrub away all the remnants of your summer feasts from your grill, you will need a long-handled wire brush, a wire bottle brush, and some soapy water.
Wipe Down Your Outdoor Furniture: give your outdoor furnishings a thorough cleaning to remove any built-up debris.
Clean Your Gardening Tools: soak your gardening tools in warm, soapy water to get rid of any residue that may have dried and hardened on it and to prevent rusting.
Organize the Garage: Invest in storage bins, open shelves, and pegboards so you can keep items off the floor whenever possible. Then sweep the floor with a large push broom!
