It’s nearly that time of year again; it’s nearly time for the dreaded spring clean.
Very few people look forward to spring cleaning their home as it takes up a fair amount of time and it isn't the most interesting of ways to spend the day. However, it’s something that needs to be done. In order to give your home a proper spring clean, you need to do a lot more than simple dusting and vacuuming. When a spring clean is done well your home will feel fresh, clean and ready for the new season.
Top Tips for Spring Cleaning Your Home
A Clean Oven Makes a Big Difference - Though cleaning the oven can be time-consuming and relatively boring, it does make a huge difference. It isn’t something that you do every time you clean the kitchen, which is why it’s important to make it part of your spring cleaning plan. With a small amount of bicarbonate of soda mixed with water, you’ll be able to remove a lot of unwanted build up.
Clean Out Your Fridge - As something that is used every single day, cleaning the fridge is something that is often overlooked and forgotten about. So, include it in your spring cleaning routine. By completely emptying the fridge of all food, you’ll be able to clean it from top to bottom. There are a number of products available for this, but using toothpaste and a toothbrush is a great way to get into those hard to reach places.
Don’t Forget to Declutter - When thinking about spring cleaning, a lot of people focus on making each and every room as clean as possible. They forget that decluttering the home is just as important. Take the time to decide what you really want to keep and what you can do without, throwing away or donating anything that you no longer need. By doing so, you will find that your home feels tidier and more organised.
Deep Clean Your Carpets - Even if you are someone who vacuums their carpets regularly, you should still deep clean them as part of your spring clean. An awful lot of dirt and dust builds up on carpets, some of which will not have been removed by a weekly vacuum or a brief clean. However, a deep clean will certainly do the job. A deep clean also has the benefit of improving the way that the carpet looks and feels. Deep cleaning the carpets is especially important in bedrooms and living rooms, where there are large pieces of furniture that are not often moved. Think about how much dirt could be lurking under a sofa or bed.
Unless you are someone who truly enjoys cleaning, you will probably find yourself wanting to put the spring cleaning off time and time again. Though it’s tempting, it’s not ideal and it’s often best to get started as soon as you can. When the spring clean is done, your home will be at its best.
