spring cleaning tips

Spring has sprung which means it’s time for Spring cleaning. Taking your spring cleaning day by day alleviates the overwhelming feeling that there’s so much to do. Doing small things every day adds up. By the time the weekend comes along, you’re almost finished! Happy cleaning and happy spring.

Donate Old Clothes
Clothes take up so much space. Go through your closet and drawers and get rid of those items you’ve been holding on to, and donate them. A rule of thumb I use is if I haven’t worn it in a year, I most likely am not going to wear it again. Toss it. Those shoes you bought on sale that are a half size too big? Donate bin. Afterward, you’ll have more space, and getting ready in the mornings will be a little smoother without having to dig through old clothes. There may even be a place in town that you can sell your gently used clothes to!

Deep Clean Bathrooms
Everyone’s favorite chore, cleaning the bathrooms. It is an oddly satisfying feeling. Take a day to clean all the bathrooms in the house. Clean and scrub the showers/tubs, clean the showerheads, replace the shower caddy, clean and disinfect the sink, toss old beauty supplies, toothbrushes, everything top to bottom. Maybe even treat yourself to new bath mats and towels. There are not many things better than a freshly cleaned bathroom.

Tackle the Living Room
Your living room probably has the most traffic. You get home from work and school and plop right there on the couch. We all do it but don’t forget to vacuum your living room furniture to get dust and hair off. Check between the cushions and underneath the couch for trash and little toys. Wash your throw blankets and pillows. Disinfect and clean tables and the remotes. Finish it off by wiping down the baseboards. Top off your cleaning day by lighting a candle. You’ll feel refreshed next time you walk in here.
