As the weather gets warmer, it’s time to think about your annual spring clean. Cleaning your house from top to bottom may seem like a challenge, but it’s actually pretty easy – and satisfying! Just follow our top tips for sprucing up your home in a flash.
- Preparation is the Key to Success!
Gather all your spring cleaning supplies in advance, to save yourself time and frustration on the day. For a basic cleaning kit, you’ll need microfiber cloths, paper towels, an all-purpose cleaning spray, dusters, a vacuum, a mop, rubber gloves, and trash bags. Store your products in a caddy that you can easily carry from room to room.
Before you even lift a cloth, you should tidy up and declutter. This will give you a clean slate, helping you see where the dirt is lurking. Put away all the flotsam that’s lying around and box up for donation anything you no longer want/need.
- Clean Top to Bottom
When cleaning, you should start with the top floor of your house and work down. Likewise, you should clean light fixtures and ceiling fans before tables, floors, and baseboards. You don’t want dirt from above spoiling your freshly-cleaned surfaces!
When it comes to your kitchen and bathroom, there’s an easy way to save valuable scrubbing time. Leave cleaning products to soak into your sink, toilet, and tub; they’ll do the hard work while you tackle other rooms.
Dust furniture, shelves, lamps, electronics, and decor (including your lovely Fun Sign Factory wall signs!). Then, wipe down doors, mirrors, cabinets, and counters, and wash your windows. Finally, vacuum and mop your floors to make them sparkle!
