Vacuum refrigerator coils.____ Jul 23Add a rinse agent to your dishwasher, or refill.____ Jul 24Start a savings account at your bank for a vacation or a new TV.____ Jul 25Dust around the ceilings and moldings.

I know that’s what I’ll be doing!____ Jul 27With kids coming in and out, fingerprints are common. Go through your home with a damp cloth and wipe doors, light switches, and faucets.____ Jul 28Buy some wide rubber bands and write kids names on them. Put them around drinking glasses or plastic cups to save on washing.____ Jul 29Wash your garbage cans. Spray with the hose, then use a disinfecting cleaner. Rinse if necessary. ____ Jul 30Clean and flush hot water heaters. Water heaters are usually in a closet or out of the way area, where they get dusty. They also need draining occasionally and inspecting for leaks.____ Jul 31Clean out desk drawers. Do yours and get your kids to do theirs as well.
