Top Deep Spring Cleaning Tips
Spring cleaning is the perfect time to give your home a thorough sorting out and a freshen up deep clean.
It’s that time of year again – the days are getting warmer, you start opening your windows to let in some sunny fresh air, your boots and jackets return to the back of the closet, and there’s just a feeling of freshness everywhere you seem to go. It’s Springtime, which gives us all the perfect opportunity to prepare for the upcoming party season!
The warmer weather gives us the motivation and energy to get stuck into the task, and although it may seem daunting, the reward at the end is always worthwhile.
So without further ado, here are a few of our spring cleaning tips for the upcoming season:
Clean the windows
One of the best things you can do to brighten up your home and welcome in the sunnier days is to make sure your windows are cleaner than ever. So be sure to wipe down all the windows, frames and tracks in your home to let even more light filter in!
Get those hard-to-reach spots.
We always like to overlook those parts that we can’t be bothered to reach, including the spots under furniture, behind shelves, and the inside of drains. It’s important to clean up those hard-to-reach areas. Dust any light fixtures, vacuum under the couch, and every surface of your bookshelves – whatever you’ve meant to clean!
Re-organise your closet
With the seasonal change, it’s always important to make sure our wardrobe is all set and ready to make sure we have outfits at the ready for the upcoming months. This can mean organising clothes in cabinets or drawers according to shirts, pants, sweaters, etc. This is also a good time to take winter clothes to the dry cleaners, so no stains set it before next season.
If you feel like opening up more space in your closet, you also might want to consider donating or selling any unwanted clothing. Sites like eBay and Depop allow you to sell some of the items you either outgrew or don’t have the place for anymore!
Have a feel-good moment and drop your unwanted clothing and accessories to a local charity or Men’s or Women’s shelters. You will not just feel better when you see some space in your wardrobe but will be helping the less fortunate at the same time.
Rearrange the furniture
The placement of your furniture plays a huge role in making sure that you feel right at home, and sometimes it’s nice to change things up for the season. If you feel like moving the couch away from the wall and closer to the television screen or filling in that blank space with a cabinet, then feel free to get adventurous!
This can also be a great way to make your home feel more spacious and less cluttered.
Tidy up the kitchen
Cleaning up your kitchen can do wonders for your overall home, and it also happens to be the one place where small messes can go unnoticed. Look through your kitchen utensils and see if there are any that seem to need replacement, or just never used. You can also do a full pantry clean out and dispose of expired goods.
Some of the bigger things that we never think twice about like the inside of our refrigerator. It’s easy to forget that our bigger appliances can also get a bit messy over time. Take the time to clean the inside of your fridge – reorganize the items and wipe down any spills.
Put a cup of Bicarb Soda in the corner with a couple of Vanilla drops to keep it smelling fresh.
Don’t forget the little things.
It’s easy to forget about some of the little things when it comes to cleaning, but in the end, having a tidy space means making sure everything is in order – especially the things we tend to overlook.
Wash your hairbrushes, clean out your makeup drawers and dispose of any old and unused items. Wipe down computer monitors, keyboards, the mouse and sort out all of that paperwork that has been jammed into the drawers.
Some last-minute freshening up
The final touch to any Spring Cleaning is making sure your home is just as fresh as it is spotless! Putting some flowers and plants on display is the best way to ensure that your space can maintain that fresh, clean, atmosphere.
Reward yourself for a job well done!
When the job is done, don’t forget to reward yourself. Sit back and relax with a glass of wine or a lovely cup of tea, take a hot bubble bath, and enjoy your beautifully clean and organised home.
