As you emerge from the depths of winter, it’s likely that your garage is cluttered and in need of some organizing. When you start your spring cleaning, here are some tips on how to tidy up your garage.
Sort through your items
As you sort your way through your garage, decide whether some items are worth keeping. If you come across some items you no longer have a use for, you can sell them or donate them. If you’re not sure whether you want to toss something, think about whether you’ve used it recently.
Use storage tools
Keep your garage organized with some storage solutions so you can easily find any tools or equipment you need. Invest in some hooks to hang larger items, such as bikes or kayaks. If your family is big into sports, mesh bags are great places to keep balls. Other storage solutions include pegboards for smaller items such as tools or a metal trash bin for animal food and gardening equipment.
Clean the floor
Your garage floor has been subject to all sorts of fluids, dirt, and snow, especially through the winter. Freshen up your garage for the spring by giving your floor a nice wash. Clay kitty litter is great for soaking up car fluids, and you can scrub the floor with degreasing soap and rinse it clean.
If you find that your car is leaking fluids often, bring your car into Motor Inn of Spirit Lake for routine checkups and maintenance. We proudly serve drivers in the Spirit Lake, Knoxville, Estherville, Carroll, and Algona areas.
