Spring cleaning season is the perfect opportunity to give your home a cleaning boost.

It’s the ideal time to prioritize rug cleaning, carpet cleaning, and getting up those month-old stains. And, let’s not forget about those “I’ll clean it later” surfaces in your home (think baseboards and kitchen crevices) that have accumulated dirt and grime over time!

20 Mule Team Borax™ is an all natural multi-purpose cleaner and laundry booster that can be used in so many ways throughout your home. In addition to rug cleaning and carpet cleaning, this all purpose cleaner can be used to help remove pet urine and mildew odors, clean surfaces in your kitchen and bathroom, and boost your laundry load for extra clean and freshness.

These spring cleaning tips with Borax will help you tackle spring cleaning naturally. With just one box of Borax, you can boost spring cleaning like a boss and leave your home looking and smelling better than before (bye bye smelly odors!)

1. Clean One Room at a Time

No matter how many rooms you have in your home, thinking about cleaning your entire home or apartment can be daunting.

Start by making a list of the rooms in your home. Then, each day prioritize deep cleaning one to two rooms. By cleaning one room at a time, you can make your way through your home at your own pace and enjoy the feeling of deep satisfaction after you check each room of the list.

2. Start with Kitchen and Bathrooms

The kitchen and bathrooms are often cleaned more regularly than other rooms in a home. By starting your spring cleaning process in rooms you’re used to cleaning, you can build your confidence and get “warmed up” for some of those more daunting spring cleaning tasks (Hello closet organization!).

You can clean surfaces in your kitchen and bathroom with Borax. Simply dilute ½ cup of Borax into 12 ounces of warm water and pour the mixture into a squirt bottle.Be sure to label the bottle clearly and keep it out of the reach of children and pets.

This simple mixture can be made in less than 5 minutes and acts as a DIY multi-purpose cleaner that can tackle dirt and grime on surfaces throughout your home. Spray the solution on your bathroom and kitchen counters and wipe away the grime.

3. Don’t Neglect Rug Cleaning

If you have rugs in your home, now is the perfect time to clean them. Rugs can house dirt, pollen and dust from shoes and feet over time and don’t always get included in your typical carpet cleaning routines.

Luckily, you can use Borax for area rug cleaning and carpet cleaning. Borax can help clean up new spills, spot-clean your carpets, and support steam cleaning. You can read more about how to clean your carpets and rugs with Borax here.
