Spring is in the air
Believe it or not, it’s time to start thinking about spring cleaning your home. You owe it to yourself and family to enjoy a clean that’s more than dirt-deep. Think allergen-deep. And spring cleaning isn’t something to dread—just follow our easy spring cleaning tips and tricks.
1. Make a Schedule
Scope out your home: What areas need the most work? Where do you skip during routine cleaning? Those are the best places to start. Regardless of where you start, having a plan for when you’re tackling each room will keep you focused on the task at hand.
Studies have shown that a disorganized home adds to your stress level. Spend some time organizing your closets, spring cleaning your office, and looking into that junk drawer to eliminate unnecessary stress from your life.
3. Always Work from Top to Bottom
It’s important to start from the ceiling down. This will force debris downward and keep you from having to re-dust or re-clean your space. If you have a vacuum with a long extension hose, use it to get cobwebs and dust from your ceilings and fans. Then dust your furniture and other items before vacuuming all the dust from your floors.
4. Walls and Windows Need Love too
Use a damp towel to wipe down walls and blinds (starting from the top). On the outside, remove and wipe down the window screens. When it comes to the actual window, using a steam cleaner with a squeegee is a great way to clean windows.
5. Don’t Be Scared of the Kitchen and Bathroom
Wipe down your cabinets. Go through your pantry and refrigerator, wipe down the shelves, and throw away any old items. If you have stainless steel appliances, be sure to use gentle cleaners to avoid scratching or other issues. Change your shower curtain and
go through your cosmetics drawer and throw away any expired items
