As some of you already know, I LOVE Real Simple. I’m going to start sharing a few of their tips for cleaning your house….
Air conditioners: When your ACs are in use (hopefully VERY soon), it’s smart to clean them monthly so they don’t get listless on the hottest days of summer. First turn off the power & pop off the front panel. Remove the spongy filter & soak it in the sink in equal parts warm water & white vinegar for about an hour. Use the vacuum’s crevice attachment on the coils. After you’ve replaced the filter (wait until it’s dry) and the front panel, dust the exterior and the control buttons with a disinfecting wipe. Have central air? Once a season, unscrew the vent covers & clean the slats on both sides with a damn cloth.
