Purple heart donation

The sun is out, the birds are chirping, and the snow is slowly melting away. You know what that means — spring is here! And for a lot of people, that also means it’s time to get out the old feather duster and do some much-needed spring cleaning. But even the noblest of intentions can get overwhelmed by the sheer amount of tasks that need to be done.
Refer to this handy list of spring cleaning tips and in no time you’ll be free to frolic with the frogs in the beautiful, sunny, blooming outdoors!

Clean Your Carpets
Carpets go through quite a lot during the winter. From snow boots to dirty dog paws, these fabric mats essentially act as dirt sponges, absorbing all of the wayward winter muck. To clean your carpets, first target the high traffic stones and zero in on heavy stains. From there, deep clean your rug with a carpet shampoo and steamer. You’ll have a fluffy tug in no time!

Wash Your Windows
Some say trying to make a window perfectly clean is the definition of insanity. But with windows, the key is to not seek perfection. Do your best with a paper towel and window cleaner on the interior, but try to focus mostly on the exterior, where majority of dirt accumulates.

Give Your Fans a Refresh
The last thing you want in the summer months is for your fans to be full of dust! Taking a few minutes to wipe off the blades of your ceiling fans and air conditioner vents with a cloth will save you and your allergies a world of inconvenience.

Fre Your Life of Clutter
Let’s face it…when’s the last time you wore that pink cupcake dress you got in 2001? What about that hat you won at the YMCA fair in seventh grade? If you’re like most people, then you have an incredible amount of clutter in your home. Instead of stuffing your clothes back in your closet, try donating clothing to charity. Donating clothing to charity is easy: all you do is take your used clothing donations to a donation pickup center. Not only will you be helping families in need, but you’ll be freeing your life of unnecessary clutter! Read more about this topic at this link.
