Cleaning Challenge: Let the Light Shine

New Year Cleaning Challenge Day 88

Nightfall comes ... and on come the lights!

Today in the Cleaning Challenge, it's time to assess outdoor illumination.

Take a good look at the light fixtures on the porch, path and driveway; do they shine a welcome light on your front porch? Dust down the fixtures, clean the diffusing glass, and replace any dim or burned-out bulbs.

Next, survey the front of your home from across the street. Do you need to add exterior lighting? Consider easy-to-install options like solar lights to beef up security and highlight landscaping.

It's time to let your lights shine!
