Tips and Tricks to Keep Your Home Cleaner Longer

When spring-cleaning your home, why not do it in such a way that'll keep your home cleaner with less effort all year long? Here are some ways to keep your spring-clean fresh all year long:

#1 Use Humidity to Defy Dust
Low humidity levels cause static electricity. Not only does static attract dust, it makes it stick, so it's difficult to remove. High humidity causes problems, too - it's an ideal environment for dust mites. These microscopic critters are a double threat: They're a common allergen, and they contribute to dust production. There are as many as 19,000 dust mites in half a teaspoon of house dust, according to the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology. Yuck!

What to do: Keep your home's humidity level between 40% and 50%. That'll eliminate static while decreasing dust mite growth. 


#2 Apply a Car Product to Keep Shower Doors Scum-Free
You can eliminate soap scum build-up by coating your glass shower doors with a rain-repellent product made for car windshields. When applied to glass, products like these create an invisible barrier that causes water, oils, and debris (like soap suds) to bead and roll off.

What to do: Find this product anywhere that sells basic auto supplies. You'll know it's time to reapply when water stops beading on shower doors. Keep in mind, windshield rain repellants were made to treat glass, not plastic, so only use on glass door.


#3 Seal Your Stone Countertops
Natural stone countertops, including granite and marble, are porous, so if they're not sealed, liquids like red wine, juice, or soy sauce can stain them. A countertop sealer repels stains by causing spills to bead instead of getting absorbed. Most countertops are sealed when installed, but the sealant does wear down.

What to do: To keep your countertops in tip-top shape, re-apply sealer twice a year. To see if you need a fresh coat, pour a tiny bit of water on your natural stone countertop. If the water doesn't bead or doesn't stay beaded for two to three minutes, it's time to reseal.
