Spring Cleaning Tips

 

Spring cleaning your home and yard is deeply satisfying on many levels of your mind, body, and spirit. Whether you’re an advocate of an all-out session of spring cleaning, or tend more toward the small, simple jobs, both can bring the season’s freshness into your life.

In this article you are going to learn what is spring cleaning, and how you can make it more acceptable in terms of hours and work. The key is knowing what to clean and plan it accordingly. You’ll learn also why it is important to avoid letting the clutter and dirt accumulating up to those days in March where you will be cleaning.

So here’s the first tip: deal with places you don’t clean regularly more often. I recommend that you clean the garage 4-5 times a year, instead of just in spring. I know it’s not the nest room in the house and the one you spend the least amount of time. However it’s worth keeping it clean or at least acceptable. Bacteria can spread easily if the environment is not optimal.

A few areas of the home need of special attention. Keeping a clean kitchen is a task that should not be taken lightly. The burner drip pans can be extremely difficult to clean – consider replacing them, they’re inexpensive and make the stove top sparkle! Toilets are always a burden – use Coke or any natural cleaning products to scrub, weird but it works. Clean carpets are great, but keeping them smelling fresh isn’t easy. Sprinkle baking soda (make sure it isn’t chunky) lightly over your carpet – a bit more in heavy traffic areas – followed by a spray bottle of vinegar, bringing a foam to the carpet. Let your solution foam for a few minutes, until it stops bubbling. Finally, vacuum well and let dry – dry time will depend on amount of vinegar used.
