Using eraser sponges makes tackling this task a lot easier!

Once all items have been crossed off your cleaning check-list, your new home is sure to feel fresh and inviting to your family.

Instead of having to clean around your furniture, take advantage of the couple days you have without furniture in place by cleaning the spaces in your home that will soon be covered up.

  • Baseboards and forced air vents are two important areas to focus on.  Using a magic eraser sponge makes this an easy process, limiting the amount of products you need down to 1!

Switch Plates and Outlet Covers

Especially if you are moving into an older home, years of use have probably added a difficult to notice layer of dirt to the switch plates and outlet covers.

  • Use a extra strength magic eraser sponge to scrub this grime away for a fresh, clean feeling – and don’t forget to make note of any mismatched covers for your next trip to the hardware store.

Inside of Cabinets

Before unpacking your kitchenware, take some time to clean out all of the kitchen cupboards.

A task that is much more difficult to complete one your shelves and drawers are full, this will ensure that your dishes don’t end up with crumbs or gunk on them.

Kitchen Appliances

If your new home came with kitchen appliances already installed, do some deep cleaning before filling your refrigerator with food and baking dinner in the oven.

  • Food odors tend to linger without a thorough cleaning, and you never know how often the homeowner before you cleaned out the oven.
  • Depending on the type of oven you own, different techniques should be employed for cleaning the interior of the oven itself.

The oven racks, oven door and range can all be cleaned easily with an Eraser Sponge, as can all surfaces of your refrigerator.
