As bifold door experts, obviously our first port of call in a spring clean is our bifold doors. We like to use q-tips to clean along the slim tracks at the bottom of the door, this prevents dirt and dust build up. Then, just take a clean paper towel and wipe away any excess dust.
Glass surfaces can be impossible to keep clean - especially if there are sticky little hands around! A natural and easy way to clean glass is to use a small amount of vinegar and lemon juice mixed together in a spray bottle and then wiped away with a clean cloth. No chemicals and nothing toxic (for the window lickers amongst us!).
This method is not only useful for bifolds, but also for windows, mirrors, glass cabinets or skylights.
To repel dust (and reduce further cleaning!) it's useful to rub a thin layer of wax onto your vents, light fixtures, ceiling fans etc, to avoid dust build up in the future. Remember, it's important to keep your home well ventiliated to avoid mould and damp, now is the perfect time to open all your windows and doors (and bifolds) and let the spring air rejuvenate your home!
