Get rid of stains using shaving foam

Rub it in and leave it for 30 minutes to an hour and then start to blot it dry. Be sure not to use shaving gel! Also, before you start, make sure you use the foam on a hidden area of the fabric just to be on the safe side!
Out with paper in with the microfiber

You can use water and white vinegar to clean the inside of your showerhead. Pour the solution into a bag and make sure you seal it around the showerhead and leave it for up to one hour. This will remove any build-up trapped within the showerhead.
Check Those Rugs

You may run the vacuum on your larger rugs, but spring is the perfect time to take them out to beat and shake. Just throw your rug over a line or fence and start beating with a stick, broom, etc. You should be doing this three to four times a year!
