Winter is almost over, and now comes the task of making your home ready for spring. All the accumulated clutter from the holidays and daily activities, plus all that snow, can make spring cleaning a challenge. While you wait for winter to officially end, start clearing up now! We’ve got a few tips below to make your winter cleaning quick and efficient.
Before you begin tackling the mess, first remove all things that do not belong in the living room and keep them in a box. Pick up all trash items and throw them away. Takedown curtains and draperies and have them washed. Then start dusting. Dust the ceiling, vents, walls, corners, shelves, tables, chairs, lamps, and appliances. Using a clean cloth, wipe the ceiling fan with a solution of mild soap and water. When it comes to your carpets and rugs, if vacuuming couldn’t do the job, you can opt to hire a professional cleaning company to do it for you. Dust off your doormats to prevent dirt from getting transferred to your floors. After everything has been thoroughly cleaned, start arranging!
The kitchen is home to a lot of stuff, which makes it hard to clean. If dishes are needing to be washed, start with them first. Take the trash outside and gather your cleaning supplies. Begin sorting out the contents of your drawers, cupboards, and cabinets; put what isn’t needed away and carefully arrange what is left. Clear your pantry of food that is no longer consumable and try transferring some items into containers. Wash and dry your utensils and clean your kitchen appliances thoroughly. Your counter-top, stove, and refrigerator need to be cleaned, too. Carefully wipe surfaces with a clean cloth to bring back the original sparkle and neatness, and put things in their proper places.
Remove all things that do not belong in the bedroom. Place all your dirty laundry in one basket, and sort them out later. Haul your curtains in the basket as well. Remove spider webs and clean your ceiling and ceiling fixtures. Dust your room’s interior, and afterward start wiping the windows clean with a window cleaning solution. Vacuum your floor, taking into consideration the areas beneath your tables, chairs, and bed. Finally, do the laundry and try giving your room a makeover!
Bathroom cleaning needs more than scrubbing! First up: remove all cloth materials for the moment and keep them away. As usual, put away the trash and materials that do not belong there. Scrub your toilet bowl, bathtub, tiles and grout with the appropriate cleaning solutions. Wipe your faucets clean and launder your rugs. Inspect every nook and cranny and remove spider webs and stains. Check your shampoo containers, soap, and other toiletries and see if you need to have them replaced.
Do not wait for spring before you do your cleaning!
