It’s that time of year again.
The flowers are sprouting, birds are chirping, and the sun is shining, which means it’s time for Spring Cleaning!
This time of year is a perfect opportunity to clean up your home and get a head start before the craziness of the summer days.
Here are five tips to help you get started.
1. Organize and Toss the Clutter
Over the colder winter months, it’s normal for some clutter to pile up as we try to stay warm and comfy and focus a little less on household chores.
As things start to warm up in Spring, it’s the perfect time of the year to get organized and remove the built-up clutter around your house.
To do this, start by sorting everything in the room that you’re working on into these categories: trash, give-away, donation, and keep.
This method will ensure that you readily know what’s going and what’s staying.
2. Keep Cleaning Products to a Minimum
With the extra cleaning, you might have to get some more products, but before you do, we have a recommendation – keep the items to a minimum.
You can do this by getting an all-purpose cleaning product, reusable microfiber cloths, and then any specialty items you need, like disinfectants.
3. Create New Cleaning Habits
Similar to a New Year’s Resolution, create a resolution to keep your home tidy year-round, so it’s not a hassle every year in Springtime.
Figure out a schedule that works for your lifestyle.
Whether that’s thirty or even fifteen minutes a day, you’ll be amazed at the outcome over time when you employ a little consistency.
4. Outline A Plan
Regardless of the size of your home, cleaning it can be a challenge at times.
Plus, Spring cleaning is going above and beyond the regular mopping, dusting, sweeping, and scrubbing, so you might not know where to even begin.
We recommend listing all of the rooms in your house on individual sheets of paper and then writing out everything that needs to get done in each room.
After you finish, begin with the room with the most things on the list and then work your way down.
That way, when you’re on the last sheet of paper, it’s the least amount of work.
5. Check Expiration Dates
We’ve all been there, having expired food, medication, and beverages taking up space around our home.
Don’t simply pull out all of the items to clean and then put back; check the expiration dates and toss anything that’s past its shelf life.
Not only will this help you stay organized but it’ll keep you on top of what you need and don’t need.
