CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - It is a time of year we love but the work we have to put in with it isn't always welcome.
Spring cleaning, it turns out, doesn't have to be a massive hassle.
Amber Mancino, style and lifestyle expert and co-founder of the blog The Twin Crowd shared her tips, trends and favorite cleaning products on WBTV News Sunday Morning. Her advice follows:
Tip 1: Deep clean your home for spring! Washing windows, wiping down light bulbs and even yours walls will make your home gleam and glisten. The effect will be really beneficial and will make you feel like you've accomplished something.

Tip 3: To keep carpets looking nice, remember to take off your shoes when you get home—but leave your socks on because walking around in bare feet leaves natural oils that attract dirt. Also, make a goal to vacuum highly-traffic areas 2-3 times per week.
