Since we have been told by the government and health care professionals to stay home as much as possible, in order to flatten the curve, we all have extra time to clean our furniture.
After all, while it is easy to be overwhelmed by stress, anxiety, and uncertainty , it’s important to remember :
OUR HOMES ARE ONE THING WE HAVE CONTROL OVER
Have a plan, remember you don’t have to clean all your furniture in one day. Consider taking on one room per day. This will give you the confidence that this is something you can take on during this period of chaos; and in doing so you’ll have clean furniture.
Here are some cleaning tips:
- Never use glass cleaners, detergents, liquids or waxes on wood furniture.
- Clean with water and mild soap using a soft cloth followed by a dry cloth.
- Remove all spills immediately.
- Never place your furniture in direct sunlight for long periods of time .
On upholstery furniture, remove seat and back cushions and vacuum regularly to remove dust particles.
Vacuum upholstered headboards as well.
Use a slightly dampened soft cloth or leather cleaner.
Use a leather conditioner every three months to keep leather supple and prevent it from drying out.
Use mild detergent and water followed by a glass cleaner with a micro fiber cloth.
Get ready to rid your home of dust with a HEALTHY spring cleaning!
