Thanks to all your wonderful participation, the "Ultimate Flip for Fall Checklist" is finally here! Is your tip on the list? Check it out--
- Wash furniture slipcovers and throws that aren’t on your bed and snuggle up withclean, allergen-free blankets.
- Keep your dryer vent clear: Excess lint in the dryer vent will cause extra dust to be released into your home. Speaking of laundry, flip those laundry loads quickly to avoid mold and mildew.
- Take down mini blinds, or at least while the curtains are washing, wipe blinds
clean of all dust and debris. While you’re at it, wash windows and seal windows
along the edges.
- Change air filters, vents and maybe even call in the chimney sweeps!
- Clean the entire house using disinfectant, but especially don’t forget the phone
and door handles that are often overlooked. Steam clean the carpet as well.
- Create a Flip for Fall checklist for all the areas in your home (hall closet, master
bathroom, beds, pantry etc.). Once an area has been cleaned, check it off and
include the date.
- Clean out old items in the garage and attic, and get seasonal decorations ready.
Use bins to organize by holiday or season so that you can easily locate them.
- Go through kids clothing and have them do a fashion show to make certain that
everything fits. Clean their closets while everything is out.
- Make sure your flashlights have batteries and stock up on emergency candles.
- Change the look and feel of your home with simple changes like hanging a fallthemed
welcome sign or changing your doormat, bring out seasonal candles, table
decorations and even placemats.
