7 Spring Cleaning Tips
If spring is in the air, don't let a musty house spoil it. Here are seven tips for giving the season the welcome it deserves.

4. Clean the blades of a ceiling fan by covering them with a coat of furniture polish. Wipe off the excess and lightly buff.
5. Clean screens with a scrap of carpeting. It makes a powerful brush that removes all the dirt.
6. If drapes are looking drab, take them out of the window, remove the hooks and run them through the air-fluff cycle in the dryer along with a wet towel (to draw off the dust) for 15 minutes. Hang them back in the windows immediately.
7. Sometimes comforters, blankets and pillows don't need to be cleaned, but they do need to be aired out after a long winter in your closed-up home. Take them outside and hang them on a clothesline for a day.
