    Spring Cleaning Tips for Your


    Happy Camper Blog



    BrushIt’s time to grab your favorite cleaning products and give
    your RV a good spring cleaning. While you’re at it, throw open the windows to
    bring in plenty of fresh air. Here are some tips for tackling the

    1. Clean the inside of your RV from top to
    . If you start with the ceiling, you can clean up any
    dirt or dust that gets dislodged as you make your way down. Begin with the
    ceiling fans and clean the screens and blades with warm, soapy water. Then
    wipe down the ceiling using microfiber cloths and your favorite all-purpose
    cleaner. Next, tackle the walls, including your windows, window sills and
    screens, and wash your curtains and wipe down your blinds. As the last step,
    wash, mop or vacuum your floors, taking care to get into the corners and all
    those little crevices.

    2. Defrost your freezer and clean your fridge.
    As small as they are, RV fridges and freezers still need
    purging, cleaning and reorganizing. This is a good time to empty them out
    (who knows what you’ll find?) and give them a thorough going over with warm
    soapy water or disinfecting wipes. Tossing out what you don’t need and
    reorganizing the rest can be pretty satisfying.

    3. Tackle those cabinets. Just like
    with your fridge, this is a good time to empty your cabinets, wipe down the
    insides and reorganize their contents. While you’re at it, take an inventory
    of what you have and make a list of what you need to get. Spring cleaning
    also gives you a great excuse to get some new clear plastic storage
    containers to make it easier to see what you have on hand.

    4. Clean your stove and oven. You
    might need a little extra elbow grease for this task. SpongeUse an all-purpose cleaner on the stove and oven (or a degreaser,
    if necessary) and make a paste of baking soda and water for areas where the
    stains are baked on.  And don’t forget the knobs and oven racks –
    give them a good soaking in warm, soapy water.

    5. Wash (and maybe wax) the outside.
    For this tip, we’re going to tell you what
    not to do because the
    protective gel coat that comes on your RV needs a little extra TLC. First of
    all, don’t use dish soap because it can leave a film that can damage the
    finish of your RV. Use baby shampoo instead, and add a little white vinegar
    to your wash water to minimize water spots. Also, since microfiber cloths and
    brushes might scratch the finish, use a soft cotton cloth or lambswool pad or
    mitt, instead. Finally, if your RV is a bit older and has lost that
    fresh-from-the-factory shine, add a coat of floor wax to polish it up and
    you’ll be ready to hit the road again.
