It’s that time if year, one that I equal parts love & hate. SPRING CLEANING TIME. It is time to clean everything you can get your hands on and crack open the windows. Even though it is still slightly Baltic outside. Nothing like a bit of fresh air in your home. We are here to share our top spring cleaning tips. These tips will not only get your home sparkling but also get your cleaning done SOOO much quicker.
SPRING CLEANING TIPS
Listen, I think we are all guilty of going to B&M, Home Bargains and various other budget shops to stock up on cleaning items and storage. ALL THE STORAGE.. but that just adds to the clutter that’s already cluttering. It makes sense to get rid of everything you don’t need, first. Decide what you want to get rid of first, how you want to organise the things you are keeping and THEN buy the storage.
DON’T BE OVERLY SENTIMENTAL
Do you really need to keep every Christmas card your child has ever received? Do you really think you are going to use six old I-phones? Because we don’t. Throw it out!
REVAMP YOUR WARDROBE
This is something I desperately need to do. You probably own 20 different jumpers, but do you wear them all? We tend to reach for the same clothes over & over again, so it is time for a sort out! Turn all your coat hangers the “wrong way round” in your wardrobe, so they are hanging towards you. Then when you wear something, hang it back the right way – facing away from you. In six months have a look at your wardrobe and anything that is still facing the wrong way, get rid of.
CREATE A CHECKLIST
Nothing feels more satisfying that ticking off your to do list! Write down room by room exactly what jobs you want to achieve and it’ll feel all the sweeter when you can sit down and tick off every job.
CREATE CLEANING ZONES
If there is one or two rooms that are particularly bad, focus on them first! If you have a weekend to crack on, do those rooms first and then do the others that won’t be as time consuming.
MAKE IT FUN
Watch an episode of your favourite tv show whilst you fold and put away clothes, listen to a podcast or an audiobook, turn up the music! Make it as fun as it can because the novelty of cleaning soon wears off.
Nobody needs five tin openers, 4 rolling pins & 12,000 reusable shopping bags. Get rid. Have a look what other multiples you have and throw them away, it is just extra clutter you do not need.
