Spring cleaning season is here so grab your bucket and kickstart your routine, writes
Daffodils are blooming and lambs are gambolling, which can only mean one thing – spring cleaning season is officially here.
Getting started can often be the hardest part, so here are a few tips and tricks to make the whole process a little easier.
There’s nothing worse than running out of paper towels when you’re halfway through cleaning your windows. So, before you get started, make sure you have everything you need on hand so that you can work as efficiently as possible. Stock up on rubbish bags, storage boxes and all manner of cleaning products – rubber gloves, sponges and scrubbing brushes and a good all-purpose cleaner – so you don’t have to run out to the shops once you get into the swing of things. Put everything you need in a clean bucket you can carry from room to room, so you’re not constantly running back and forth.
We get it – unless you’re one of those types who looks forward to a big clean (and good on you if you are) the prospect of cleaning your entire home from top to bottom – no matter how big or small it might be – can be seriously daunting. Instead, it might be a better approach to tell yourself that you’re only going to concentrate on one room at a time – or, if even that feels a bit overwhelming – one drawer or cupboard at a time. Finish each space before you move on to the next one and be realistic – it’s unlikely you’re going to get through your whole home in one day.
Give your glass a thorough clean inside and out. Finish by leaving your windows open to let in the fresh spring air.
