The New Libman Tornado Spin Mop System

Long, harsh winters can wreak havoc on a home’s outdoor spaces – from the grime and grime that accumulates on patio furniture to the mud and debris that litters the driveway and garage. With the relief of another winter endured often comes new inspiration to get the outdoor spaces of the home in shape for warmer weather that includes relaxation, play and entertainment. Here are five hacks from The Libman Company to tackle that job:

Garden furniture. If you have kept the patio furniture outside during the winter months, you will definitely need to clean everything. Use a mixture of warm water and a teaspoon of dish soap and mix in a bucket, then grab your favorite mop to clean the furniture – so you don’t have to bend over. Then hose down the furniture and let it air dry. Libman’s New Tornado Spin Mop System is a convenient all-in-one mop kit that includes a mop and a bucket.

Clean outdoor trash cans

Spring is the perfect time to freshen up your outdoor trash cans. To do this, first make sure you empty all the trash cans; then pour some dish soap into each of the boxes. Lay the trash cans on their side and use a scrub brush or pressure washer to clean them thoroughly. For better cleaning, consider first soaking the boxes in soapy water before scrubbing them.
