Okay, so I know not many house guests really inspect our houses while they visit. They visit US - not our houses. I know this...but I've also had a few that were prone to point out every dust bunny and carpet stain. I guess I'm a little paranoid now.
So today, I'm going to talk to you about cleaning your cold air vents. I gave you my list of things I wished to accomplish before Thanksgiving guests arrived. That list is here.
So I have completed the following: ceiling fans, windows, oven, trash cans, and coat closet. I feel pretty accomplished.
Today I tackled my cold air returns. Wow! I didn't realize how nasty they can get when you don't clean them often... I think I cleaned this one last March.
I used my favorite cleaners, basic H and a microfiber cloth. A 16 oz bottle of Basic H costs less than $10 and makes 48 gallons of all purpose cleaner when mixed 1/4 tsp to 16 oz of water. That's less than .25 per 16 oz bottle of cleaner. Just let me ask you? What does YOUR cleaner cost? I bet it's not less than .25 per bottle :)
I sprayed on my Basic H all purpose cleaner. Waited about--- oh 30 seconds -- and then wiped each "rung" with my microfiber cloth, working left to right.
Five minutes later, I was all done! I had three cold air returns to clean today. Total of 15 minutes for a task I usually dread and avoid like the plague!
How is your to do list coming? Are you getting ready for the holidays?
