End of Summer Cleaning

Posted by Jessica Zoldowski on 9/4/2018 to Appliance Maintenance

It’s the time of year again where the porches are cleaned off and windows will be shut. The time of colder weather is coming. However, before the cool breeze chases everyone inside, it’s time to look at the last parts of cleaning. Read below for those forgetful but important things that need to be cleaned until next year.

Beach towels: Since these towels have been in the hot sun drying off bodies that have been in pool water, ocean water, lake water, etc. they should be cleaned appropriately. Use hot water that is best for the type of fabric the towel is created by, do a small amount of fabric softener or detergent and do one more final rinse. After it’s clean, dry thoroughly and put the towels away until next year.

Sleeping Bags: If sleeping bags were used in the sand this year, shake them out as much as possible. Afterwards, grab a vacuum or brush to get the rest of the sand out. If there is wet or damp sand in the sleeping bag, let it air dry, and then follow up with the same steps listed above.

Muddy shoes: Let the mud on the shoes dry completely if they haven’t already. After, take the shoes outside and knock the soles of the shoes together to get some of the dried dirt off. Grab some warm water, dishwashing soap, an old toothbrush, and gently begin to scrub the rest of the dirt away. Once the scrubbing is done, grab a damp paper towel and wipe away the dirt. Stuff the shoes with dry paper towels and set them outside until they are dry.

Plastic tablecloths: Warm. soapy water should do the trick, but if that doesn’t work, clean the whole thing in the washer. Use the washer, on a gentle cycle, to really give the tablecloth a nice wash. Afterwards, put the tablecloth in the dryer on the delicate cycle for about 15 minutes or less. This will help decrease the wrinkles created from the washer, but not too much time where it will harm the vinyl material. If it is not completely dry, have it line dry.

Outdoor Cushions: The cushions can easily be cleaned, with materials such as cotton, polyester, and acrylic, with warm water and dishwasher detergent. Rinse with clear water and have them air dry.
