Spring Cleaning For People Who Hate Spring Cleaning

7. Deep Clean Your Linens
Want to have your sheets look like new? All you need is a tub and some beauty sleep.

"My top tip for cleaning mattress covers, duvets, and pillowcases is to soak them overnight in a soapy mixture," says Marina Vaamonda, a cleaning expert and founder of PropertyCashin. "You can add stain remover in the concoction to remove stubborn [spills]. Wash them in [the laundry] the day after with mild detergent to avoid destroying the fabric’s quality." 

According to Vaamonda, soaking your sheets helps loosen up the dirt, sweat, and oil build-up in the fabric hairs, making them easier to remove in the washer afterward.
