6 Essential Spring Cleaning Tips
It's been a minute...
Now that March is upon us, we all know what that means. Spring is coming! After a long a rollercoastery winter, I think we can all agree it's time for Spring Cleaning. I remember growing up that it wasn't exactly my favorite thing to do, but we all gotta. Here's 6 tips on how to make Spring Cleaning a spring breeze!
1. Start in your bedroom.
You wake up there just about every morning and sleep there just about every night. Flip your mattresses and fluff your pillows to make sure you're getting maximum freshness to start off the new season! Dust can accumulate quickly, especially in areas with less fresh air exposure.
2. Head straight to the bathroom.
Check your light fixtures. Dust and cobwebs can accumulate there overtime, and it's really nasty! Check the grout in your shower area. Grout in tile areas can wear out overtime. Make sure to throw away any old or expired beauty products!
3. Make your way to the kitchen.
Defrost your freezer. You'll see how much more space you have and how much more pleasurable it will be.
Don't forget to thoroughly wipe down the outside of your cabinet doors and drawers. Dust (yeah dust is a biggy in this post), sticky germs, and even mold can slowly accumulate on there.
When you get to the oven, DO NOT forget about the vents inside. Lots of dirt can get stuck in there.
4. Wipe down your furniture in the living room. SO many germs on there.
Move the furniture about an inch to left and take care of the spots hidden under the legs of tables, chairs, couches, etc.
Wipe down the windows, and creases in them too.
5. Ceiling fans!!!
I didn't mention ceiling fans in any of the above, because they can be in every room in the house. Those ceiling fans collect all kinds of dust (I feel like I should've titled this "Dust is the worst"), bacteria and germs during their rotation. On a blog post by Carpe Diem Cleaning, they recommend to even reverse the rotation of the fan.
6. Use cleaning products in every space to wipe down and remove bacteria.
Seriously. Water's great, but it won't properly do the trick like household cleaners would.
That's about it guys. I hope this post finds you all well.
My posts will get better I promise.
