The Forgotten Spots


Whether you are preparing to stage your home for sale or undertaking your spring-cleaning ritual, Better Homes & Gardens, and House Logic , remind us of overlooked areas. These less obvious tasks should become part of your routine:

  • Clean and inspect your vacuum.
  • Wipe down handrails, doorknobs, light switch plates, railings. Considering these items are petri dishes, you should probably add them to your weekly cleaning list.
  • Clean the undersides of surfaces. When is the last time you wiped the bottom of your kitchen table?
  • Your toothbrush holder…and toothbrush!
  • Dispose of those toxic chemicals… like old paint! Check your town’s toxic waste disposal day to responsibly rid yourself of those cans piling up in the garage.
  • Oh…the ice cube trays! (I forgot, too.)
  • Wipe down computer peripherals – and your office items (pen holder, mouse pad, telephone cradle…).
  • Clean out that pantry! Oils – and foods that contain oils, like nuts, can go rancid.
  • Dust those plants! Whether live or plastic, plants leaves collect lots of dust.

Meet Viva Magenta 18-1750, Pantone's color for 2023.  This “nuanced crimson red tone” is “dynamic without being aggressive or overpowering.” Whether you choose to use Viva Magenta for a statement wall in your home or as a splash of color for a vase or place setting, expect compliments! Other decorating colors favored for 2023: Spanish Moss (Krylon), Raspberry Blush (Benjamin Moore), Terra Rosa (Dunn-Edwards), Redend Point (Sherwin-Williams), and Vining Ivy (Glidden). For those of us who prefer neutrals, 2023 brings us Blank Canvas (Behr) and Rustic Greige (Dutch Boy) . Valspar has chosen 12 versatile “livable” paint colors, including Southern Road and Gentle Violet. Better Homes & Gardens (at Walmart) has chosen Canyon Ridge as its color for 2023. We think it’s a perfect chose to freshen your kitchen – or even your living room!
