(NC) One of the big bonuses of cleaning is that it gives you the chance to re-evaluate your belongings and to purge items you no longer love or use. The adage “one person’s trash is another person’s treasure” is the reason that garage sales were born.
Let’s look at ways to make yours memorable:
1. Create buzz. Invite family members, friends and neighbours − the more, the merrier. Chances are you’ll net more bargain hunters by advertising a multi-family sale. Let children organize a lemonade stand, sell brownies, popcorn or small toys. Play cheery music and give wee shoppers a free toy or treat to take home. Be sure to have Green Works Compostable Cleaning Wipes on hand for any spills, accidents or last-minute cleaning that may come along the way.
2. Shine and polish. Make sure the front of your house looks neat and tidy on the big day by cleaning what you’re selling. Launder clothing and round up toys, housewares, sporting goods and leisure equipment that need a scrubbing. Wash them in your laundry tub using Green Works Naturally-derived Dishwashing Liquid for a sparkling clean that is gentle on hands.
3. Let it go. Complete your sale by donating everything that didn’t sell to a local charity. Or you can give away items or slash prices for end-of-day shoppers. Cap off your day by hosting a barbecue with fellow garage-sale vendors. Keep Green Works All-Purpose Cleaner nearby to wipe away fingerprints and build-up from curious bargain hunters. And remember to relax. You’ve earned it.
