  • Sink/Counter: Make sure you are consistently cleaning your counter surfaces and scrubbing your kitchen sink. You don’t want to allow any tough stains to build up.
    • Pro Tip: Your garbage disposal may need some extra attention as well. Pour in a half a cup of baking soda with some vinegar. Let sit for 10 min and then run your garbage disposal with the hot water on.

  • Top Down: This goes for everyroom but start by cleaning and dusting from the ceiling and work your way down. Sweep and mop last. 
  • Couch: Don’t forget to look underneath your couch and couch cushions. These are spots most people miss. Be sure to clean out all of the crumbs from your couch before moving out. 
  • Shower: Give your shower a scrub to eliminate grime. Deep cleaning your bathroom is an absolute must before moving out. Keeping your bathroom clean will save you a hard time when moving out. 
    • Pro Tip: White vinegar is once again your friend. Spay down your show and let it sit to help remove grime and hard water stains. 
  • Toilet: When cleaning the inside of the bowl. Let your cleaner sit for a while before you scrub. Use that time to clean and wipe down the rest of the toilet. You can even clean the tank of your toilet with, you guessed it, white vinegar. 
  • Ceiling Fans: Don’t forget to wipe down your ceiling fans to get rid of dust as well. You can avoid getting dust everywhere by cleaning your fans with a pillowcase!
