Keeping your home tidy during the summer can be an uphill battle.   Here are a few of our favorite summer cleaning tips to keep your home fresh and bright all summer long.

Distilled White Vinegar

This powerhouse cleaning item will make your hardwood floors shine, and freshen up mildew ridden towels from the pool.

  • Muddy Summer Rain Floors- Mix together 1/4 cup of white vinegar with a 1 quart of water in your bucket.
  • Pool Towel Laundry- Add 1/2 to 1 cup of vinegar straight to the washer during the last rinse cycle to remove foul odors. This will remove the smells from your clothes, without making them smell like vinegar.
  • Fresh Summer All Purpose Cleaner-  Add leftover summer salad citrus peels, a few sprigs of rosemary to a mason jar and add vinegar, cover at let sit for at least two weeks.  Then take the solution and dilute with water into your favorite spray bottle.
