f REAL ESTATE & CLASSIFIEDS - MARCH 2013 PAGE RE-3 s your spring cleaning routine suf- ficient? Or do you suspect dirt may be lurking in places you've never even put on your to-do list? If you're like most Americans, chances are you forgot some of these often overlooked spots while spring cleaning: In the Kitchen Most people hit the stove, fridge and the microwave. But there are more places in the kitchen needing your attention. All cup- boards and pantries should be cleared and re-stocked at least once yearly to dispose of expired food and guard against insects and rodents. Also make sure you clean your can opener! This often used, rarely cleaned tool can be a trap for bacteria and spores. Use Q-Tips and soapy water to wipe down every nook and cranny, including the gears. In the Laundry Room Have you noticed an unusual funk com- ing from your washing machine? This may be because the new, high-effi- ciency washers use less water than tradi- tional ones, causing residue buildup from dirty clothes, detergent and hard water minerals. If so, it's time to clean your machine. Something as simple as a washing machine cleaner, which comes in a small packet you drop into a normal cycle without clothes, can keep your machine smelling fresh. Once you've got your washing machine clean, next focus on what you put in it. With spring and summer whites sure to be washed this time of year, consider switching to a detergent with both stain fighting and whitening power, typically one with a bleach powder. And look for a new concentrated ver- sion, which not only gives you the same cleaning with 1/3 less detergent, but helps save you space and helps save the planet by reducing packaging.

Because of their soft, uneven surfaces, they're prime locations for dust and aller- gens. Sticking them in plastic bags and then in the freezer for four hours will kill dust mites. Then use a vacuum to suck up dead carcasses. You should also pay attention to ceiling fans, crown moldings and even the walls. INCLUDE THE WASHING MACHINE - When you begin spring cleaning your home, remember thatdirt and odor can hide almost anywhere, including your washing machine. Clean your home from top to bottom and do it easily with steps provided in this story that tells you where dirt can hide and the easy ways to rid your home of it. It's best to use a damp cloth to wipe down all surfaces. Dry feather dusters tend to kick up dust and allergens, which settle back down in the same place. In the Living Room grmdow treatments and lampshades attract dust and germs as much as any other home surface, but are easily cleaned using removable vacuum attachments, such as a combo brush or crevice tool extension. And don't skip floor vents, door jams, and window sills. These areas are often overlooked and can collect years of grime. Of course, regular cleaning is the best way to minimize your spring cleaning.

ALMOST TIME TO ENTERTAIN! - With warmer weather on the way, most home- owners are getting ready for the ou1": ide activities, including entertaining family and friends with bar- becues and more. Be sure that your deck is ready for the warmer weather and safe before entertaining. See story below for details. As the days get longer, there's nothing like barbequing and entertaining friends on your deck. But before you pass out , those invitations, make sure your deck has weathered the winter and is ready for its seasonal duty. The abuse a deck surface takes from the weather, foot traffic, barbeques, and food and drink spills can create both surface and structural problems. "To make your deck last, clean it thor oughiy every one to two years and re-stain every two to four years," says Mark Clement, host of the radio program '~IyFixitUpLife." "It also helps if your deck is made from a natural, durable wood, such as Western Red Cedar, which holds oil based finishes for an extended period of time." Clear Out: Clear all furniture and potted plants off the deck. Then inspect the deck for dirt and pollen buildup. Sweep it clean of debris that may have fallen during win- ter. For safety's sake, make sure there are no nails sticking up from the deck or from any posts.
