Doesn’t it just feel amazing to have a sparkly clean home? Here are some easy spring cleaning tips and tricks to freshen your home without losing your mind.
MAKE A SPRING CLEANING PLAN
The most efficient way to spring clean your home is to make a plan. What areas need the most work? Where do you skip during routine cleaning? Those are the best places to start.
It can feel like a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be difficult., begin by making a list of all the rooms in your house and tackle one at a time.
Having a plan will keep you focused on the task at hand. Just go room by room, if you try to take on too much at once, you may end up giving up before you’ve accomplished everything on your to-do list.
ALWAYS WORK FROM TOP TO BOTTOM
People almost always clean their floors, but they typically forget about walls and windows. Not all dust settles on the floor. One time-honored trick when you’re spring cleaning is to tackle each room from top to bottom and left to right to not retrace steps.” It will save you time.
Dust and clean the ceiling, molding, and light fixtures. Then wipe down the walls, clean the windows and window treatments, dust pictures and other art and sanitize the doors and light switches. When you’re done with what’s on the walls, move on to the furniture and the outside and inside of any storage pieces. You can either start with the closets or do them right before you clean the floor, which is always going to be last.
I don’t mean getting mentally prepared. I’m talking about making sure that you have all of the supplies you need.
If you’ve ever hired a professional cleaner, you might have noticed that they showed up with a handy supplies tote. Consider assembling your own, which you can tote from room to room.
A few cleaning essentials for your caddy are:
- A glass-safe cleaner
- A bathroom cleaner
- A floor cleaner,
- Plenty of washable scrub brushes and microfiber towels
Having all your basics in one place will also save time and trips back and forth to the supplies cabinet, making cleaning that much easier.
