2. Make sure to also clean your lights. - Go Lights
“Don't forget to clean your lights! Lighting including pendants, floor lamps and table lamps add personality and character in your home but often we neglect to clean them! For all glass pendants simply detach them from their suspension and wash them in warm soapy water, rinse and leave to dry! Be sure to turn off the power when cleaning any lighting to avoid hazards.
Tip: When you put your pendant back try using cotton gloves to avoid finger prints.. just don't let them pendant slip! Another great spring cleaning tip is to go green! Spring cleaning is a great time to refresh your home try looking at improving your energy consumption by using LED products! LED Downlights use 80% less electricity than traditional lighting.”
