We are looking forward to spring! Longer days, warmer weather and lots of sunshine! This is a great time of year to give your home a good scrub down (aka spring cleaning!) Here are some tips to begin your cleaning crusade with ease.
Blankets And Linens The colder months call for warm and cozy throws, but as the warm weather approaches, now is a good time to find your lighter linens and blankets. Take the time to give your covers and throws a good wash and refresh. You may not need them at this exact moment, but once the warm weather is here, you will have them clean and ready to use.
Seasonal Decor The wintertime has many fun holidays, like Christmas and Thanksgiving to name a few. As we begin to transition to more outdoor celebrations, take the time to clean and neatly pack away any decorations that will not be used. By storing them in a tidy fashion, it makes unpacking them for the next holiday even easier!
Outdoor Items To follow up on seasonal decor mentioned above, begin to make a list of the items you may need for the warmer weather. Do you need new patio furniture? Or maybe new gardening tools? By creating an inventory of what you require for the spring, it will be less overwhelming when it is time to go shopping.
Enjoy The Season The wonderful thing about spring is all the fresh flowers and plants that are now in season. Whether you have a green thumb or not, decorating your home with fresh flowers is a wonderful way to celebrate the spring season and adds a beautiful final touch to your spring cleaning efforts. Head to your local farmer's market and treat yourself to a bouquet of fresh-cut flowers. It does not have to be anything extravagant, just a few flowers can really brighten up your space.
Make Time To Clean
Spring cleaning can be a daunting task, but breaking down the process into smaller jobs makes it easier to achieve. Try organizing your cleaning list into rooms or projects and determine which days you will set out to accomplish those tasks. For example, you can organize your cleaning list by room: living room, bedrooms, laundry room. You can also organize by a specific task such as clean all the windows, wash all sheets, put away all cold-weather gear into storage. Choose which system is best for you.
