I removed all my vents and washed them in the sink with soapy water. Her next step was to let them dry and apply some turtle wax. This task has been one that's needed to be done for a very long time. I'm pretty good about vacuuming the tops of the vents when I vacuum. It's the washing that has been neglected.
|Nice and clean. Looks like I need to bust out the spray paint though.|
I also noticed when I took the covers off the vents there was lots of junk down in them. Little Smac had put a bunch of toys down his. I took the vacuum and cleaned those out also. My hall vent for the AC was totally gross. When I took it off the wall I noticed how bad the actual ceiling around it was. I took my favorite cleaning tool, the magic eraser, and cleaned up the ceiling. It looks so much better!
|Gah I can't believe I'm actually posting this.|
|A trillion times better.|
