1. Cleaning windows
For streak-free and safe windows, mix 1 part white vinegar to 3 parts hot water. Kids and adults alike can clean to their heart's content.
2. Odors in pipes or drains
Put half a cup of baking soda down your sink drains, let it sit for 30 minutes, then rinse with vinegar. The effervescence will produce a fun and degreasing effect.
3. Bookshelves and storage spaces
In addition to promoting a deep dusting, you can take the opportunity to sort through clothes, books, or other items that are no longer useful and could benefit new owners. There are several sorting and donation centers in Montreal and the surrounding areas.
4. Bedding and carpets
Instead of using the dryer, why not take advantage of the first sunny days to air out blankets, sheets, and carpets outside in the fresh air. Your electricity bill will thank you. Several natural laundry soap and fabric softener recipes can be found on Pinterest.
5. Add a personal touch to your decor
Whether it's a new frame, an enlargement, or a metal print, this type of addition will surely liven up your decor. For example, you could take a JPEG or PDF illustration of a child's drawing to add a personal touch to your room. Several size and finishing options are available to you.
