4.  Hose off or Replace Doormat

My doormat takes a beating over the winter months. Spring is the perfect time to replace your doormat. Be sure and use a doormat outside and inside to trap dirt from being tracked into the house.

5.  Clean the BBQ Grill

Once spring arrives, my husband uses the BBQ grill several times a week so I make sure it’s ready for a workout. I disconnect the propane, remove the grates and give them a good scrubbing. I scrub the inside and replace the grates. Last, but not least, the outside of the grill gets a good cleaning with Windex® Original Glass Cleaner. I always use Windex® when cleaning stainless steel.
