Welcome back. Here are the next 3 ideas on keeping your porch looking its best…

4. Take that same cloth and clean any furniture that is on your front porch!!

5. Look around your porch area and make sure there’s nothing there that shouldn’t be. Like trash or WEEDS!!! If it is January and you’ve still got your Christmas wreath on your door…GET IT OFF!!!

6. Make sure your front porch light is in working order and not covered in bugs and dust.

I must say if you do this weekly, it only takes less than 15 minutes to keep your front porch looking its best. If it has been a long while since you have cleaned it, than you might need to get a hose and spray everything off really good. But then keep it up with just a broom. I like keeping my broom in our garage so I have easy access to it. I also keep one on my back porch because I am always sweeping and cleaning the back also!!

I have given my 3rd little duckling the job of sweeping the porch each week, so that also helps on the up keep!!!

Homework: CLEAN YOUR FRONT PORCH!!! And have a great and organized weekend!!!

When friends or salesmen walk up to your front door what do they see??? Do they see cob webs??? Are leaves covering your porch so you can’t even see the concrete??? Is dirt so thick on your windows that you can’t even see in???

I can tell you that sometimes, mine looks like The Haunted House at Disneyland!! — dust, dirt and cobwebs on the bench by the front door. It’s not surprising, because anyone with a garage normally enters their home through it. But it’s the front porch that the public sees — it’s your face to the outside world. So, is yours dirty? The situation is quickly resolved as easy as 15 minutes or less.

Here are 6 great ideas on making your porch look its best at all times!!

Here are the first 3…

1. Grab a broom and sweep the porch.

2. Use that same broom and sweep around the frame of your front door, clearing all cobwebs, etc. Do the same for the walls around the porch. Just a few quick motions is all you need here.

3. If you have a window by your front door, take your trusty Windex and clean until it sparkles. Same thing for the door handle and the lock.

Hope to see you Thursday for the next 3 ideas!!
