Day 2-Spring Cleaning for the Rest of Us: 30 Days to a Cleaner, Fresher Home

The Challenge:

I have started a series titled, “Spring Cleaning for the Rest Of Us-30 Days to a Cleaner, Fresher Home“. We will be going off of Martha’s spring cleaning checklist here and completing each major task, only we’ll be doing just 1 a day.

Now, I know some of you will likely go on vacation or get sick or maybe you don’t do housework on Sundays…and that’s fine. You’ll just have to double up some other days (or go a bit longer than 30 days). It’s also likely that there will be a day that doesn’t apply to you (maybe it’s a day we wax our floors and none of your floors are the type to need waxing), so you get that day off. Some of you might also have older kids that can help out with some of the more complex tasks, that’s fine too! I encourage you to get the whole family involved, cleaning is everyone’s job .

All that matters is that we get this stuff done, without getting even further behind on our day to day housekeeping.

Today we clean refrigerator coils!

***Day 2 Task:

Today’s task has us in the kitchen. We will be dusting our refrigerator coils. Be sure you take care of all refridgerators and freezers in your household today. Cleaning the refrigerator coils every 6 months or so helps with energy efficiency and will help your appliances last longer!

If you want a bit more direction for how to clean your refrigerator coils safely and effectively, this wikiHow article gives a pretty detailed walk through.

Dust Refrigerator Coils: Turn off power at circuit breaker or fuse box. Coils are usually at the bottom of the refrigerator, under the grill. Clean coils with the crevice attachment of a vacuum or a specialty refrigerator-coil brush, available at hardware stores.

 

That’s it for today! Be sure to come back tomorrow for the next task!
