Fall Cleaning 101 :: Don't Neglect the Patio
Each Spring, homemakers across the country begin in the yearly ritual of Spring Cleaning. We break out our mops and dust clothes in an effort to ready our homes for the warmer weather. However, did you know, we need to do the same type of cleaning in the Fall?
Fall Cleaning is not as arduous as it's Springtime counterpart (thank goodness!), but it is necessary to ensure our homes are ready for the season and holidays.
Over the next couple of weeks, I will remind everyone of tasks they can do each day to accomplish their Fall Cleaning; thus, making the season a little less hectic.
Fall Cleaning Tip #4:
Clean patios, foyers, and any other outdoor surfaces. Make sure to wash off patio furniture; this is also a great time to change over your Spring themed cushions for seasonal printed cushions. If you don't plan on using your outdoor patio furniture, now is the time to store furniture cushions.
By properly caring for your outdoor furniture, you are sure to prolong their usage life and provide a nice clean and welcoming area for your home during the holidays.
Be on the lookout for fire pit sales at your local hardware stores. One of our family's favorite times during the Fall is snuggling up in front of nice fire.
