Spring is finally here! It’s time to open all of your windows – and less excitingly, your cleaning supplies cabinet. A good, deep spring clean is a tradition that not only promotes wellness by keeping your home neat and tidy, but also signifies a fresh start into the warmer months. While cleaning and organizing your home from top to bottom may seem stressful and time-consuming, it doesn’t have to be. Here are some spring cleaning tips that will help you keep your house in tip-top shape all year long.
Clean Room by Room
Approaching your house room by room can make spring cleaning easy and less daunting. Creating a checklist for each room can also make it easy to keep up with cleaning for the rest of the year and remind you of areas that need extra attention. A good idea is to assign each room and cleaning duty to a different day of the week so you aren’t completely overwhelmed.
Organize and Clear Clutter
A big part of spring cleaning is getting rid of any items you don’t need. Start to organize your closet, pantry, refrigerator, office, and any other areas of your home where you feel like there is a lot of clutter. I like to take the time and go through every single thing (checking expiration dates on foods, trying on each piece of clothing I own, etc.) and sort my belongings in four piles: keep, trash, donate, and store away for later.
Invest In a New Vacuum
Get a new vacuum that fits your needs. If you’re looking for a vacuum that does all of the work for you, the Roomba iRobot is for you. Hate getting tripped up on cords? Then we suggest the Samsung Jet Complete Cordless Vacuum. The Black & Decker Steam Mop & Dry Vacuum is the best of both worlds, eliminates tough dirt and grime with the cleaning power of steam. Shop all vacuums.
Get the Whole Family Involved
Don’t just take on cleaning the whole house on your own. Assign age-appropriate chores to each member of your family – even small children can help put things away. Make it fun by playing music or establishing a reward for getting the chore done.
Don’t Forget an Air Purifier
One of the least fun aspects of spring is pollen. With the weather getting warmer and the trees and flowers blooming, seasonal allergies are about to be in full effect. It’s important to invest in a good quality air purifier with a powerful filtration system. This will not only filter pollen out of the air, but dust, mites, smoke, and more. Shop all air purifiers.
