Your Spring Cleaning Action Plan : Declutter, Deep Clean, Delight

Can you feel it in the air? A shift is happening. The days are getting longer, the birds are singing more, and there's a natural urge to fling open the windows and freshen up our homes. But the thought of a massive spring cleaning project can still feel daunting.

Follow these tips to make your spring cleaning a breeze, and have your home sparkling in no time:

Plan and Conquer:

  • Tackle it in Stages: Don't try to do everything in one day! Divide your home into sections (kitchen, living room, bedrooms etc.) and dedicate a focused cleaning session to each. This will make the project feel less overwhelming.

  • Make a List: Write down all the areas and tasks you want to accomplish. Extra Tip: Categorize your list by cleaning supplies needed (e.g. all-purpose cleaner, disinfectant wipes) to streamline your cleaning process.

  • Declutter Before You Deep Clean: Start by removing clutter. Sort through belongings and discard anything that's broken, unused, or expired. This will make cleaning much easier and give your home a more spacious feel. Pro Tip: Place two bins next to you, one for donations and another for trash, to make sorting quicker.

Cleaning Hacks:

  • Work Top-Down: Dusting and cleaning high surfaces first prevents dust from settling back down on freshly cleaned areas below.

  • Clean From Natural Light to Dark Corners: This way you won't miss any spots!

  • The Power of Baking Soda and Vinegar: These natural cleaning powerhouses are not only budget-friendly, but also safe for use around children and pets. They're eco-friendly and won't leave behind harmful residues. As multi-purpose marvels, baking soda tackles tough stains and absorbs odors, while vinegar cuts through grease and disinfects surfaces. Bonus Tip: Create a baking soda paste with a little water for scrubbing stubborn grime.

Don't Forget These Often-Overlooked Spots:

  • Wash your windows: Let the sunshine in! Grimy windows can make the whole house feel dull. Tip: Use a microfiber cloth and a solution of vinegar and water for streak-free shine.

  • Clean baseboards and door frames: These areas accumulate dust and grime easily. Extra Tip: Attach a damp microfiber pad to a long tool (like a mop) to reach these areas comfortably.

  • Don't neglect your light fixtures and ceiling fans: Dust buildup can impact air quality and make your lights appear dimmer. Pro Tip: Carefully remove light fixture covers and wash them with warm soapy water. Wipe down fan blades with a damp cloth.

  • Mattress Refresh: Vacuum your mattress, then sprinkle baking soda on the surface and let it sit for an hour before vacuuming again. This will remove dust mites and freshen things up. Extra Tip: Flip your mattress while you're at it!
