Clean Your Apartments Deck
A great way clean a deck is to attach a hose to a broom. This will help aid in the process of cleaning your deck.
Actually, the hose will completely rinse the deck and will loosen the caked dirt while you sweep it away.
Nevertheless, before you try a new cleaning solution, you need to test it first. Try a small test to ensure
that it will not harm the finish. The last thing you want is to pay to refinish a deck when moving from an apartment.
Unclog Your Drains
Baking Soda and ammonia make a great frugal movers potion that can unclog a drain. You definitely shouldn’t combine the mixture with harsh chemicals like ammonia, drain cleaners or bleach. That could create some seriously toxic vapors! The next thing you could do is our half a cup of baking soda right through the drain. And then, pour half a cup of white vinegar. If possible, cover it with a drain cover. After about fifteen to twenty minutes, pour 6 to 8 cups of boiling water directly into the drain. This will help move the baking soda and vinegar throughout the pipes.
Remove Food From The Stove Top
When cleaning a stove that has caked on dirt, you need to utilize a razor blade that will help scrape the residue off of the glass while being careful not to scratch the surface. After the cooked-on and hard pieces have been eliminated, you now need to wipe it off with a paper towel or a damp cloth.
Clean Your Apartments Microwave
In order to clean your apartments microwave you need to mix water and white vinegar in equal parts in a bowl. Then, heat it up in a microwave for several minutes and that will help loosen up all residues that have accumulated inside. Afterwards, wipe it down using a paper towel.
EXTRA, EXTRA! Clean Your Windows!
Newspapers are very absorbent and usually don’t streak, plus they don’t leave lint like cloth rags can. There is, however, a need to be extra careful when it comes to vinyl window frames. This is due to the fact that the ink might potentially leave marks. In addition to that, know that you might end up with some ink on your hands.
Clean Any Scuffs You Have
Scrub the linoleum using a dry cloth and toothpaste. And then, continue scrubbing it until that there is no toothpaste residue that has been left.
Clean Hard Water Stains
You have to create a paste consisting of one teaspoon of vinegar and two tablespoons of salt. Apply the paste to the fixtures. Finally, scrub the stains with a Brillo cloth.
Clean Your Apartments Shower

While this might seem like it wouldn’t be a good method of cleaning an apartment shower, the sheets and the fibers grip the residue. The fabric softener will remain in the sheet and will help loosen the build-up.
Clean Out Your Cabinets
Mix 2 parts baking soda and one part vegetable oil in a bowl. You can use an old toothbrush to get the job done. Now all you have to do is scrub the crevices in your cabinets and voila, you should have your apartment moving deposit back!
