“The objective of cleaning is not just to clean, but to feel happiness living within that environment.”- Marie Kando

The birds are chirping and the azaleas are blooming; but is your Albemarle Plantation home still feeling the winter blues?  Don’t worry, we have some tips to help you get it spring ready!   There is no better feeling than sitting back and relaxing with the windows open and that freshly cleaned smell that only happens after a good spring cleaning.

The cool breeze and the salty air are warm reminders that spring is here, but also that the salty coastal air can sometimes be harsh on your things and that you may need to factor that into your spring cleaning to do list.

With all the amazing views that Albemarle Plantation has to offer, we recommend starting with the windows so you don’t miss a thing!  As you open up those windows to let the sun shine in, you may notice some winter grime and pollen residue distorting your view.  No need to fret, we have narrowed down the best window cleaner for you and it couldn’t be easier!  All you need is white vinegar, dish detergent, a scrub brush, a bucket and a water hose. The process is quick, the results are amazing and your future will be so bright you’ll need to wear shades inside!

Living on the water or by the shore definitely has its perks; beautiful beaches; water sports; gorgeous views; fun with friends and family; boating; and more! However, this also means that you live in an area where the humidity in the air is naturally high. So, what does that mean for you and your home?  Mold!  Mold loves damp coastal spots and loves to grow in bathrooms and kitchens because they are in constant contact with moisture.  Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to use harsh chemicals to get a handle on mold.  The solution is as simple as hydrogen peroxide, vinegar and/or baking soda.  All of these alternatives are non-toxic, inexpensive and highly effective.   So grab your scrub brush and rubber gloves and get your Coastal Albemarle Plantation home spring ready!
