Take a Day for Your Home

This past Labor Day weekend, while everyone took a break from working, we took a day for our home. That's right-- we did the semi-annual cleaning day! Earlier this year (around March) I spent an entire weekend scrubbing the inside of the house. Now, it was time to do it again! 

Here are some of the highlights from the day...
  We pulled the fridge out from the wall and removed the plastic covering (found at the bottom) to clean the coils. See that fuzzy grey stuff? Gross! A quick swipe of the shop vac did the trick. 

 I cleaned the bottom of the oven using water and baking soda. Remove your racks and sprinkle some baking soda on the bottom. Spray with water and let sit for the afternoon. Later, you should be able to remove any nasties, no problem!
My husband was so sweet and dusted and vacuumed the whole house. We pulled the furniture back from behind the wall, and sucked up all the dust bunnies.We then used the wet Swiffer to mop our laminate floors. 

Inspiration for this day would not have been possible without the BrightNest App

I LOVE THIS APP!! You can also search their website by clicking here. They have the best quick tips on home maintenance, safety, and decor. I had no idea how important some of the tips and instructions were for the longevity and health of your home. 

Here are some of my "favorites"... 
  • Defrost Your Freezer
  • Get to know your Homeowners Insurance
  • Maintain Your Garbage Disposal
  • Save Money in the Bedroom
  • Pillow Talk: How to Keep it Clean
Happy Cleaning, Y'all!
