Tips to Clean and Organize your Home this Fall

A couple weeks ago we went from hot summer weather one day and then the next it snowed for 3 days straight. From 30 above to freezing temps in just a matter of hours! So, I actually wasn’t sure if we’d see the fall season this year, it appeared to have bypassed us completely. Yet, since that snowfall we’ve now gone back to our usual fall. Just weird.

Anyway, we are now completely surrounded with colourful crisp leaves and cooler temperatures. This has driven me to bring out the jackets, embrace oven cooking again and start preparing the home for Winter.

Here are some tips to clean and organize your home this Fall:

Clean up and close up: With summer winding down, get a head start on readying your patio or cottage for fall. Wipe down lawn furniture, the BBQ and summer toys before storing them for the year. ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda provides a safe and gentle alternative to chemical cleaning products to effectively combat summer dirt and grime, leaving everything clean for next summer.

Organize the garage: Having emptied the garage of all the toys, bikes and lawn furniture over the warmer months, it’s the perfect time to organize in preparation for storage over the fall. Organize your loose tools, equipment and toys by creating a practical storage system. Use large transparent plastic bins with labels to make things easy to find. Install ceiling hooks to hang bikes and hang shelves along the wall for a convenient, space saving way to organize.

Freshen up your home: After a few months of outdoor mess being tracked through your house by pets, your carpets could probably use some freshening up. Countless swims and runs through the mud will leave an unpleasant scent that’s hard to get rid of. Try, ARM & HAMMER™ Plus OxiClean™ Carpet & Room Odour Eliminator – Pet Fresh. This vacuum booster has the strength of baking soda to neutralize scent along with OxiClean™ Dirt Fighters to help lift away pet hair and up to 25% more dirt than vacuuming alone.

Transition your wardrobe: The change in season means a change in wardrobe too. Packing up all your summer clothes can be a daunting task, but ARM & HAMMER™ Plus OxiClean™ Crystal Burst™ Power Paks can help make things a little easier! These dissolving single dose Power Paks have the added stain-fighting power of OxiClean™, leaving your clothes fresh and stain free for next summer!
