Well, Spring has sprung and there is about one month left of the season. If you are bored during this quarantine, now would be a great time for Spring Cleaning! You have the time.
Sometimes, cleaning can be hard and tiring, but it needs to be done. If there is a rainy day where you can’t go outside, start cleaning, even if it is a little bit each day. Here are the top 5 Spring Cleaning tips.
Spring Cleaning Tips – Take it One Room at a Time
If you take one room a day or even just work on one room until you finish that room, it’ll be a lot easier. You only have to worry about the current room you’re in. For example, start with a room, where when we’re allowed to have people over, that everyone will be in, like the living room or kitchen. You’ll feel relieved when one whole room is entirely clean and then you can focus on the rest of your home.
Spring Cleaning Tips – Donate Items You Don’t Want Anymore
A lot of what spring cleaning is is getting rid of things. There are probably things in your attic, junk drawers, bedrooms, and all throughout the house, that you don’t want or need anymore, especially clothes that don’t fit anymore. Buy trash bags or get boxes and donate it to those in need. It’ll make you feel good, make your house cleaner, and make room for all the new stuff you can buy.
Don’t Forget Walls and Windows
A lot of people think of Spring Cleaning as getting rid of things or tidying up and not always deep cleaning. Most people clean their floors or the countertops, dust tables, etc., but when was the last time you wiped down a wall or your door or deep cleaned your window? Probably not in a really long time. If you have kids, wiping the walls is crucial because they will probably draw one them again tomorrow.
Time to Organize That Junk Drawer
You know you have at least one in your house. Everyone does. It is the drawer where you put the small things that you don’t know where to put anywhere else. Usually, there is tape, scissors, batteries, random keys that you don’t know what they open, and more. Organize it and get rid of things you don’t need. Put the office supplies in one container and find a spot for everything else, so when you need to find something that you have in your junk drawer, you know where it is.
Don’t Do It Alone, Get Help
“Clean up, clean up. Everybody do your share!” When you work together, more gets done. It becomes fun, having someone there to help. You could even have everyone work in a different room, that way the house would get cleaned faster and you would have more time for family time later on. Have someone put the donation items in boxes, while someone else tidies up, and someone else does the deep cleaning. However, you want to work it, make sure everyone is doing their part.
