End-of-Summer Cleaning Tips

As the season changes from summer to fall, it's a good time to go through an end-of-summer cleaning checklist. Here are four tips to get you started:

Clean Outdoor Furniture

Scrub all patio furniture and wash or wipe cushion covers. Cover outdoor furniture or store in a covered area to avoid rust and dirt accumulating over the winter.

Scrub the Grill

The BBQ's time to shine is coming to an end. Give it a thorough clean to remove grease and grime. Try this all-natural grill cleaner recipe:

1 tbsp baking soda

1 tbsp distilled white vinegar

1 tbsp natural/biodegradable cleaner

1 ball or sheet of aluminum foil

2 tbsp avocado oil spray (or similar high-heat oil)

Garage or Storage Sweep

Clear out your garage, shed, or storage locker and give it a thorough sweep. Brush away cobwebs and purge no-longer-needed items as you go. You can also oil your garage door and chain and all door hinges while you're in there.

Scrub Garden Tools

Scrub down garden tools to prevent rusting. Also, take advantage of end-of-summer sales to replenish your gardening supplies so you're ready to start fresh in the spring.
