Time to Get Organized

Spring is soon to arrive! And what better way to celebrate the new season than a little spring cleaning. Here are a few tips from Black Hills Parent to get started on your organization spree.

Keep it Clean

  • Wash Legos in a laundry net
  • Pick up sequins with painters tape
  • Glitter? Use a lint roller!
  • Stick cars to a magnetic strip
  • Use rubbing alcohol to remove markers off walls

DIY Cleaner

Remove dried food particles from the microwave without scrubbing!

Place two lemon halves and a half of a cup of water in the microwave, then heat it for 5 minutes. When the time is up, wait 15 minutes with the microwave door shut. Times up! Open the door; wipe it out with a dry cloth, and voila! No more baked on food.
