Taylor, MI: New Year’s Resolutions for Your Home

Need to get organized? Create New Year’s resolutions for your home! By coming up with a few simple resolutions you can easily be on your way to a cleaner, more organized, happier home.

Start with simple cleaning, such as cleaning your dishwasher. Add half cup of baking soda in a small dish to the top rack, and a cup of vinegar in an empty dishwasher and let it run. Once complete, keep closed for about 30 minutes to continue to steam clean, then wipe inside. Not only will your dishwasher be clean, but your dishes will start to come out sparkling as well! Add to your monthly cleaning list to continue to have shiny, clean dishes.

De-clutter and get organized! Start with the storage areas of your home. Create more space in those areas by going through boxes and get rid of anything you don’t need anymore. This will free up areas for more storage. Don’t have much storage room? No problem, look for alternative options like high up in closets, or purchasing new drawers or shelves.

Take steps to improve the indoor air quality of your home. Indoor air contains pollutants such as molds, dust, and viruses. Maintain your HVAC system with semi-annual checkups and filter changes. Also, use ventilation in your kitchen and bathrooms, this will remove fumes and excess humidity.

To continue the trend of a cleaner home, create a monthly list with cleaning points to check off. Start in the new year of January and end in December. Each month have the basics such as deep cleaning bathrooms by scrubbing grout, or vacuuming your window treatments and windowsills. But also, have one big project to take care of such as checking all smoke detectors, or changing out incandescent light bulbs to energy efficient.
