It’s officially the end of March, which means time for Spring Cleaning! We get it…thinking about spring cleaning making you overwhelmed? We’re sharing some of our best time-saving and cost-effective pointers to help you freshen up your home after the gloomy winter months. Follow these spring cleaning tips and tricks to refresh your home and get organized this season.
Make a plan:
Before you start, create a cleaning plan. Decide which areas of your home need the most attention and prioritize accordingly. This will help you stay organized and efficient.
Spring cleaning is the perfect time to get rid of items you no longer need. Sort through your belongings and donate, sell, or throw away anything that you haven’t used in the past year.
Clean from top to bottom:
Start cleaning from the top of the room and work your way down. This will ensure that any dust or debris falls to the floor, which you can then clean up last.
Use natural cleaners:
Many common household cleaners contain harsh chemicals that can be harmful to your health and the environment. Consider using natural cleaners like vinegar, baking soda, and lemon juice.
Don’t forget about the little things:
Spring cleaning is a great time to tackle those overlooked areas like baseboards, light fixtures, and window sills.
Clean your appliances:
Clean your appliances like your refrigerator, oven, and dishwasher. This will not only help them run more efficiently, but also prevent any build-up that can cause damage.
Wash your windows:
Clean windows can make a big difference in the appearance of your home. Use a solution of water and vinegar to clean your windows and a squeegee or microfiber cloth to dry.
Clean your bedding:
Wash your sheets, blankets, and pillows. This will not only help keep them fresh, but also help reduce allergens.
Don’t forget to clean the outside of your home too. Power wash your deck or patio, clean your grill, and sweep your front porch.
Take your time:
Spring cleaning can be overwhelming, so take your time and break it up into manageable tasks. Remember, it’s better to do a thorough job once than to rush through and have to do it again.
Spring cleaning is a chance to start new just in time for the winter months! Start planning your cleaning strategy soon. You’ll be so happy that first warm day when your home is spotless!
