Spring is upon us, and it’s about that time to dust off the old mop and get ready to do some deep cleaning! Don’t worry though, spring cleaning can be both a fun and rewarding experience, if you approach it with the right mindset. I’ve included a list of tips to help you get the most out of your spring cleaning experience. I hope you find these special tips useful as you’re settling into your new home!
One at a time: Try focusing on one room at a time, and try to complete one room each day. This will make the job seem a whole lot more manageable, and you’ll probably get things cleaned more thoroughly than if you tried to
tackle the whole house at once! Go at it with ease, there’s no race.
Just a little more laundry: One of the things that we rarely attend to is the state of our draperies, shower curtains, and rugs. Now is your chance: gather up every spare bit of linen in the house and have it laundered. When you’ve finished you’ll be surprised at how much brighter your home will look!
A room with a view: It’s time to tackle those windows! Set aside a special day to give your windows a good scrubbing. Clean off any screens while you’re at it: your home will literally sparkle once you’re finished.
Dance while you dust: Honestly, this is the perfect time to fully indulge your musical interests; break out the iPod, smart phone or turn up the CD player and break out in song. You’ll be singing along to your favorite tunes and won’t find cleaning to be a chore at all – it may actually be fun!
Clear that clutter: Take the opportunity to dig into the closets, dresser drawers, storage spaces, and of course, the garage. You’ve probably got a veritable treasure trove of old clutter that’s just taking up space. Find out what you want and what you don’t, as well as what is trash — now’s the time for a yard sale! Turn that clutter into cash.
