Spring Cleaning: Outdoor Furniture Edition

As the weather warms out, the backyard beckons! The kids are ready to swim and even if you’re not quite ready to jump in, you’re happy to settle in to enjoy the breeze while you supervise. Except you’re not, because as you go to sit, you realize the furniture is filthy after a winter of neglect. What to do, what to do?

As it turns out, what to do depends entirely upon the type of furniture you have! But never fear, Clean and Scentsible has a clear and concise guide to spring cleaning every type of backyard furniture - from wicker to plastic, and everything in between. Check it out, get to work, and tomorrow you can sit back and enjoy that breeze while the kids splash and play!


Spring Cleaning: Pool Toy Edition

If your house is anything like mine, the warmer temperatures have your kids jumping into a pool most afternoons. The pool toys are coming out of storage and everyone is looking for their favorite pair of goggles! And if you’re like me, that pool water is still a touch cold for your taste, so you’re still on the pool deck supervising from a safe distance - which presents the perfect opportunity for a little pool toy maintenance! After a winter in storage (okay, after a winter piled in the lesser used side of the patio) the toys could all use a good scrub down. Here’s the 411 on getting them back in good shape for another summer of fun!

  • Give everything a good scrub down with a disinfecting solution. Mix two cups of bleach with a gallon of water OR create a half and half vinegar/water solution. The bleach will be more effective, but the vinegar is easier on the nose and skin. Wipe down the entirety of all pool toys. Use a soft brush on stubborn stains.

  • Inspect squirt toys. You can suck up some of your disinfecting solution for good measure, but know that these toys are best for single season use as it is nearly impossible to completely eliminate mildew growth inside.

  • Check that your inflatables hold air and that any plastic toys are still intact. Plastic may become brittle over time, especially when stored in the harsh Florida sun. Discard anything cracked or broken edges.

  • Inventory your goggles - look over the lenses, nose pieces, and straps and seals. Toss what is deteriorated beyond use and then order whatever you need to to avoid the inevitable tussles over the one pair that everyone likes best.

Is your pool drain safe?

It's been 11 years since the VGB act was signed into law and public pools were required to replace old drain covers with new covers designed to prevent entrapment.  Many private pool owners followed suit, but if you have moved into an older home with a pool, you'll want to make sure that your drain cover is up to date.  How can you tell?  Old drain covers are flat and create a powerful suction force that can snag hair or other body parts and trap children at the bottom of the pool, unable to escape.  VBG compliant covers are rounded, unable to be fully blocked, therefore preventing that entrapment danger.

If you find that your drain cover is unsafe, we are happy to assist you with the replacement.  Call our office to schedule the installation!


When considering what upgrades to make to your pool each year, safety should always be priority number one.  If you've had any recent additions to the family, perhaps a new child or grandchild or even a new pet, it may be time to consider adding a pool fence.

One of the recommended upgrades in this month's newsletter was the practical purchase of a more efficient pool pump.  If you're still considering your options, Swim University has some great information that might help push you over the edge.  Want to save money, filter faster, and reduce the noise?  What are you waiting for?
