SUMMER HACKS FOR YOUR HOME
As the warm weather starts to thaw us out after the winter, it’s time to invite a fresh summer feel into your home. While it’s easy enough to cool ourselves down with a quick dip or a cold shower, it’s hard to know how to keep our houses cool during the height of summer. Here are some of the best hacks that you can follow to welcome Summer.
1. Give everything a good clean
There’s nothing like a good old-fashioned scrubbing to give your home a new lease of life. You might like to get up close and personal with a few of the neglected items that are sometimes overlooked in day-to-day cleaning. Look at your windows, gutters and those rarely-used drawers and cupboards which have an ability to attract junk and clutter.
2. Light Up Your Summer Nights
Just because the sun goes down, doesn’t mean you have to bring the party indoors this summer. In fact, illuminating the yard with strings of lights hung from trees, rooflines, or fence posts will create a space you probably won’t be eager to leave.
Further, by using LED light strings, you’ll be adding a level of energy efficiency that won’t drive up your power bills an unsettling degree during the hot summer months.
3. Use your exhaust fans.
Part of keeping your home cool is preventing heat from building up indoors, so it’s smart to vent the steamy air after a shower or the hot air in the kitchen after cooking. Run your bathroom exhaust fan for 15 minutes after showering and your kitchen range hood or exhaust fan during and after cooking. Make sure they’re certified energy-efficient models, which use 60% less energy than standard fans.
4. Sanitize pool toys using bleach
Dip a sponge into a mixture of two cups of bleach and one gallon of water, then wipe down pool noodles and beach balls. Scrub off grime with a brush, and rinse with water.
