Springtime is officially here, which means it’s time to start your spring cleaning! While most of us don’t look forward to inspecting and disinfecting the house from top to bottom, here are some quick tips on how to make the process a bit easier and much more effective. By the end of your spring cleaning, your home will be sparkling like new.
Plan your attack. Tackling all of the house chores can be overwhelming. Sit down with your family and plan out which rooms to do on certain days and who will take certain chores. By knowing what each person is responsible for, the cleaning process can feel less stressful and more renewing.
Save the stove for last. Since the stove can be one of the dirtiest places in the kitchen, cleaning it last can prevent dirt and germs from spreading. Make the most of your time by removing knobs and gas surface burners and soaking them in warm soapy water while you are cleaning another area of the kitchen.
In with the new liner. Don’t let your shower liner linger too long. You can opt to throw it in the washing machine or completely replace it with a plastic liner. Cleaning or replacing shower liners is cheap and a great way to reduce mold and mildew in your shower.
De-clutter the drawers. Go through the drawers in your closet and determine what clothes to keep and what clothes to donate or throw away. If you haven’t worn it in a year, it’s probably time to get rid of it and make some room for other items.
Whether your plan is to clean the whole house or to form better cleaning habits, these tips will come in handy this spring.
