Spring Clean

There is no better time for a spring clean than in Spring! No matter how good we may be at cleaning, there are certain areas that often get overlooked and we have compiled a list of handy tricks to manage those pesky tasks. For example, our good old faithful helping hand in the kitchen, the dishwasher, is often neglected when conducting the cleaning routine, but we have a simple trick to ensure it is disinfected, fresh and clean to do its job effectively. Also, when was the last time you cleaned your shower head? The simple trick below will have your shower head free of dirt and blockages. 

If you are time poor or simply have better things to do with your time, our friends at Fantastic Services have a Spring Cleaning service to ensure your house is sparkling clean from top to bottom. They also offer regular cleans which we loooove, pest control service, gardening, waste removal and handyman services. www.fantasticservicesgroup.com.au
