Spring is here, which means soon you'll be going allMarie Kondoon your home. But before you start your spring cleanup, we have a few quick tips that'll keep all your cleaning from going to waste and keep your family healthy year-round.
In addition to cleaning, spring is a good time to check your home safety procedures. Before you take a deep dive into cleaning your appliances and carpets, check off these essential safety tasks first: Check the batteries and expiration dates of all your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Replace batteries and units as needed. Also, check the expiration date on your fire extinguisher(s). Update first aid kits and replenish or add items as needed. Review your evacuation/emergency plans, and update if necessary. Get rid of expired medication. Learn how to do so safely, which may include flushing your old meds, in Where and How to Dispose of Unused Medicines. Don't skip cleaning your car. Add it to your spring-cleaning list, especially if you're looking to take a road trip this summer. Also, consider keeping a small vacuum in your trunk to keep the interior of your car looking as spiffy as the interior of your home.
