Give your home a fresh look for spring
Spring cleaning has become a ritual in homes across America. But as families focus on declutter- ing closets and revitalizing their indoor spaces, many overlook simple, inexpensive outdoor proj- ects that can give a home a real “facelift” and make it look and feel like new.

exterior. It may seem basic, but it’s amazing how much better, and how much newer a home can look after a good cleaning. And with the availability of cleaners that can be applied with pump sprayers and hose mount applica- tors, it’s never been

Cleaner and Mildew Killer. It removes the most stubborn stains without scrubbing and is safe to use near plants, grass and shrubs.
* Refresh the driveway. Sealing
an asphalt driveway was once considered a messy, smelly and time consuming project, but that’s changed. Thanks to the evolution of new water-based technologies, restoring a driveway to its “like new” appearance is easy for even inexperienced do-it-yourselfers. Epoxyshield Blacktop Coating, with its advanced acrylic formula, brings asphalt back to its original jet black color and makes it look brand new again.
* Spruce up your deck. During
the warm spring and summer months, many families spend
more time on their deck than in the living room. But both wood and composite decks need to be cleaned regularly to prevent deterioration and look their best. Biodegradable deck cleaners like Wolman DeckBrite excel at removing ground-in dirt and mildew stains without whiten- ing or damaging the surface like chlorine bleach can—and they’re easy to use.
* “Upcycle” your outdoor fur-
niture. Has your outdoor furniture seen better days? Don’t replace it, “upcycle.” You’d be surprised how easy and inexpensive it is to refur- bish patio furniture with just a few cans of spray paint. Today’s spray paints come in a full palette of colors – and exciting new textures
and finishes – so you can person- alize your outdoor space while saving your old furniture from the landfill. Try Rust-Oleum Universal spray paint in Hammered Cop- per to give your patio furniture urban style while hiding dents and scratches. Or, “dress” it in a clas- sic color like Painter’s Touch Ultra Cover 2X Espresso. One can of 2X delivers twice the coverage so the paint goes further and projects get done faster.
