When the last of the holiday decorations are put away and the flowers begin to bloom, there’s no doubt left that we’ve traded in the dark days of winter for the fresh air and sunshine of spring. With this season, however, comes an annual ritual that many find themselves dreading – spring cleaning. Thankfully, there’s no need to worry. By following a few simple tips, you’ll find yourself breezing through your spring cleaning and outside enjoying the warmer weather in no time.
- Make a checklist – It’s easy to be overwhelmed by the many tasks that come with spring cleaning. Keeping a checklist is a great way to make sure you don’t forget anything. Plus, you’ll love watching the list shrink as you begin to check things off.
- Declutter – Spring cleaning is the perfect opportunity to get rid of the items you don’t use anymore. From clothes, to shoes, to furniture, removing the things you no longer need will free up space in your apartment. What’s more, items in good condition can generally be donated, allowing you to make a difference in your community.
- Move clockwise around rooms – It’s easy to get side tracked when cleaning. To avoid missing any areas, pick a starting point then then move clockwise around the room, hitting every surface until you are back where you started.
- Clean out your refrigerator – Because many people focus their cleaning efforts on the parts of their home that other people can see, hidden spaces like the inside of the fridge often go untouched. Clean out any foods that may have expired and wipe the shelves and drawers down with a warm water and baking soda solution. You can even vacuum the dust out of the condenser coils to keep your fridge running efficiently.
