Dear ,

Spring is upon us! We made it through 2020 (even if we thought it would never end), and 2021 is here. With the New Year comes new beginnings, and here at Bay Corporation, we are starting the year off in high spirits while continuing to do our part to be safe with COVID still around.
The weather was cold and frigid this past winter, but we expect it to warm up within the next couple of weeks, as spring officially started on March 20th. Spring in Northeast Ohio is beautiful, the weather is warm but not too hot, and many of us take advantage of this weather, as there is so much to do. One can go to the Metroparks to see spring blossom, the tides at Lake Erie, or enjoy a nice meal in the open air!
From all of us at Bay Corporation, we hope 2021 has been better for you so far and continues to bring you positivity and happiness.

"Happiness does not come from doing easy work but from the afterglow of satisfaction that comes after the achievement of a difficult task that demands our best."

Wellness & Sustainability
Spring cleaning is around the corner! Warmer weather is coming which is increasing the need to have a clean space. We have gathered 10 of the best, easy tips that you could implement into your spring cleaning!
  1. Use two doormats, one inside and one outside, to collect more dirt when entering your house.
  2. Run a couple of lemon rind slivers through your garbage disposal and follow with cold water to get rid of any unwanted smells
  3. To clean the stains in your microwave, fill a large bowl with 1 cup of water and a chopped-up lemon, lime, orange, or several tablespoons of vinegar. Turn the microwave on until the water boils. Let it cool for 5 minutes, then open the door and remove stains by wiping with a sponge.
  4. Run a cut side of a lemon over a cutting board to help remove food stains and smells. For extra strength, sprinkle with salt or baking powder first. 
  5. To freshen drains and help keep them free-flowing, mix ½ cup baking soda with ¼ cup table salt. Pour down the drain, followed by 1 cup of heated vinegar. After 15 minutes, run hot tap water down the drain for at least 15-30 seconds.
  6. Clean patio furniture by mixing a squirt of dish detergent into a bowl of warm water, wipe down the furniture, spray it down with water, and let it air dry. 
  7. To organize and clear the clutter, use a four-step approach! Sort your belongings into four categories- trash, give away, store, or put-away
  8. Keep the minimum amount of cleaning products. Having a bunch of different cleaning supplies can create much clutter, and you probably do not need all of them. 
  9. Use old T-shirts to wipe down mirrors because they are great for keeping a mirror lint- and streak-free.
  10. To wipe the smudges and fingerprints off of your T.V. screen, phone, or tablet without scratching or damaging the screen, use a coffee filter.
