No. 1: The Easy Way to Clean Your Showerhead

If you notice that your showerhead has gotten covered in built-up residue, give it a quick and easy clean by following Peter’s advice. Just put the showerhead in a baking dish, sprinkle in baking soda, then add vinegar. Leave it for 30 minutes, then return and just wipe with a sponge. It will look good as new!

No. 2: Peter’s Rule of 5 to Kick Off Spring Cleaning

If you are feeling overwhelmed at the idea of spring cleaning, follow Peter’s Rule of 5 to get going, and then carry on that momentum.

5. Give away five items.

4: Throw away four items (Tip: if you wouldn’t give an item to a family member, it’s not worth donating and should be tossed).

3: Choose three areas of your home to tackle, whether it’s a shelf, under your bed or a drawer.

2: Tackle two chores outside.

1: Give something to a friend – whether that’s a gift of time, a phone call or something similar.

No. 3: The Best Way to Store Your Winter Boots

When winter is over and you’re ready to put away your boots, just use a pants hanger to hang each pair at the back of your closet. How easy is that?
