Freshen up every room in your house with these simple deep-cleaning tricks.



- Take care of the bathroom tub by scrubbing with baking soda on a clean, damp sponge. Rinse, then wipe dry. You can clean and deodorize your vinyl shower curtain by giving it the same baking soda treatment.



- Conquer the clutter. Sort items into piles for storing, donating or throwing away. When you've tossed the junk and donated designated items, it's time to start storing.



- Washing machines can build up a sticky residue inside. If your machine does not have a specific washer cleaning cycle, add liquid chlorine bleach to the dispenser and run a normal cycle with hot water.



- Don't forget the outside of your appliances. For light cleaning, dilute 1/4 cup multi-purpose cleaner in a gallon of warm water. Wipe your washer, dryer and refrigerator clean. For tougher cleaning, use a full-strength multi-purpose cleaner directly on a sponge. Rinse surfaces thoroughly with water afterwards.
