It’s ALMOST spring cleaning time! It is certainly that time of
the year when dusting away some winter blues is in order. You may feel
overwhelmed and unsure of where and how to start. Fret not, we’ve compiled some
spring cleaning tips to make your seasonal transition a lot easier. The trick
is in identifying which of our tips will work for your home and implementing
them one at a time.
Fix What Needs Fixing
Why wait for summer to start home fixing projects when you can
get them done during spring cleaning? Small repair projects like a simple
furniture repaint or replacing a fixture will take just a few hours. Doing this
will also give you a better start at your other spring cleaning agendas by
giving you a boost of self-accomplishment.
Repaint and Refresh
Using paint is one of the cheapest yet most transformative
tricks in home improvement. You can paint rooms a lighter hue to prepare them
for summer as well as give you a cleaner looking canvass for redecorating this
Spring cleaning isn’t just about throwing out things that you
don’t need but also about finding new uses for things you already have. While
you may find it better to store some furniture and décor, rearranging them can
make a huge change that will make your home a lot more cheerful and open. Don’t
forget to go for lighter window treatments as well!
Shop for New Finds
Shopping for new things may go against what most think spring
cleaning is, but as people and stores do their own spring cleaning, they might
want to get rid of things that could be perfect for your home. Now is the
perfect time to grab those items at a fraction of the usual cost!
Keep Things Tidy
Keeping things in order can be quite challenging so we’re
breaking our cleaning up tips into snippets that you can easily remember and
put to good use!
• Vacuum or steam your bed to get rid of dirt as well as
possible lurking bedbugs and the like. The same goes for your couches, carpets,
and areas under furniture. Don’t forget to flip your mattress!
• Double task by scheduling what needs to be done to not miss a thing. If you
got to clean the bathroom, schedule it during laundry. Washing the laundry does
not require you to be in front of the machine at all times so you can certainly
fit other spring cleaning chores.
• Give your closet a makeover my sorting through clothes and tucking away
winter garb. This way, you’ll have more room in your closet to showcase clothes
suitable for warmer weather.
• Organize and clean one drawer at a time. The task of cleaning out an entire
room may be too daunting. There is nothing wrong with cleaning just a drawer or
two at a time on top of your other household chores. You’ll still get done with
spring cleaning before the month ends.
• Give away or sell what you don’t need. Things that have no use for you only
serve as clutter. It’s great if you can clean your home while helping others
make theirs a better place by giving away some items you no longer want. You
can sell these as well for a discounted price to turn them into cash.
