4 cottage cleaning hacks powered by science.

Summer weather is back and it’s time to enjoy your getaway at the cottage.

3M science can help you shake off the winter with these hassle-free hacks to get your cottage ready for the season. With 46 core technologies, this full range of solutions will help to make the job quick and painless, so you can spend more time in the sun.

  1. Create a relaxing outdoor oasis.

Uncover your patio furniture for the deck and help keep it looking great with Scotchgard™ Water and Sun Shield with UV Protector. It helps protect fabric from fading by blocking out UVA/UVB rays. It’s also water-repellent, so you don’t have to worry about bringing your patio cushions inside through the rain.

Does your deck or picnic table need some work? Are you a DIYer? Try 3M™ Sandpaper before re-staining or painting. Then use the easy-to-handle, no tearing ScotchBlue™ Original Painter’s Tape to stay within the lines for your paint job every time.

When the kids play, try 3M™ E-A-R™ Classic Uncorded Ear Plugs for a snug, noise reducing seal, making them perfect for thin cottage walls and busy areas of the house.

  1. Make the space your own.

Hang flowerpots, outdoor lights, and other decorations with Command™ Large Outdoor Designer Hooks.Their strong, weather-resistant hold can be used on any surface, and they come off cleanly without damaging walls or furniture. Also try Command™ Large Double Bath Hook by the dock to hang lifejackets and towels.

For hassle-free shelf mounting, the weather resistant Scotch® Outdoor Mounting Tape and Scotch® Super Strong Exterior Mounting Tape are perfect. To fix up any damage that might have occurred during the winter, use 3M’s waterproof and weather-resistant 3M™ No Residue Duct Tape.

Finally, pick up dust from furniture and clothing with Scotch-Brite™ Mini-Travel Lint Rollers. Keep things tidy after you have swept up sandy floors with the help of Command™ Broom Gripper, which holds strongly and allows you to tuck your cleaning supplies out of sight.

  1. Have fun.

Play music, take calls, and block out unwanted noise with 3M™ WorkTunes™ Connect Hearing Protector with Bluetooth® Technology. They are perfect for the cottage with a built-in rechargeable battery, and their 40mm high fidelity speakers allow for premium sound quality.

  1. Stay safe.

With outdoor ventures often come injuries. The Nexcare™ Max Hold Waterproof Bandages, will contour to hard-to-fit places like heels, knees, and fingers – and even stay on while you swim. It’s always a good idea to have a Nexcare™ First Aid Kit on hand for on-the-spot treatment of minor injuries.

Finally, for cottage repairs and renovations, protect your eyes with 3M™ SecureFit™ Professional Safety Eyewear 400 Series, which have durable lenses that help protect you from light to moderate impact hazards.
