After you have packed up the last box it’s time to get to work on making your old place shine for the next tenants. If you are a renter this is one of the most important steps of the moving process to ensure a full return on your security deposit. Once you are done doing the usual mopping, vacuuming and wiping down of all surfaces fine tune your cleaning project with Priority Moving’s helpful moving-out cleaning tips:
Instead of using harsh chemicals to clean your stained tub grab your cream of tartar, baking soda, and lemon juice. Combine equal amounts to make a paste. Drop paste onto the stain(s) and gently rub in with your fingers or a cloth. Allow the paste to sit for 30 minutes and then rinse with warm water. Repeat as necessary.
Put to us that pair of white cotton gloves. Keep one dry and dampen the other with your choice of class cleaner (one part rubbing alcohol to three parts distilled water for crystal). With your damp glove, wipe each prism with the damp glove and dry them with other glove! Cleaning has never been so fancy!
Mirrors, Chrome & Porcelain
A cleaning tool for adults 21 and over: Vodka. Use a little on a cleaning cloth to add shine to glass, chrome or porcelain. Tip: drinking while cleaning can result in less than desirable results; please drink responsibly.
Don’t even think about throwing out those mismatch socks; put those socks to work! First mix equal parts of warm water and vinegar in a bowl. Slip one old sock over your hand, dip it in the mixture bowl and wipe each individual slat with sock. Rinse after each slat. It is also helpful to have a second old, dry, sock to wipe down the blinds after cleaning them.
