My (Not) Spring Cleaning Tips

     Spring starts tomorrow! Yay! Fresh green grass, clean air, blooming trees. Also this puts the start of the seasonal a.k.a. spring cleaning! Frankly, I don't understand the logic of it - so I am suppose to not maintain my home the whole winter and then make it shine in one day? I'd rather do a task every week than to perform something with the intensity of end of tenancy cleaning, when I can take a walk in a sunny day.
Ok, enough ranting. I'll share some of my cleaning tricks - not spring, rather those extra few things I do monthly or fortnightly.

Stain Removal Guide - Techniques for Cleaning Fabrics, Upholstery and Carpet

      Stains are not hard to remove, if you know what to do and act as soon as possible. It is essential to understand the logic behind every stain cleaning technique, so you can properly handle any spotty situation.

1. Gently blotting (not rubbing) /For splatters and spills/  - Usually performed with a clean dry white cloth or paper towel while the stain is still fresh. This removes excess to prevent further smear. Work it from edge towards the centre of the stain.
2. Brushing off /For dried mud and other gunk/ - If the stain had dried, this step is to be done before any other treatment. Perform with a clothes brush, for small stains and delicate fabrics use a clean toothbrush. Do light wispy one-way stroke motions, no hard rubbing back and forth.
