There is no better feeling than having a fresh and clean home. Even though a deep clean can be done any time of the year, most people chose the traditional “spring cleaning” as a fresh start. Spring cleaning typically involves a thorough cleaning of a living space. There are some tips for cleaning your kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom that we believe can really help with spring cleaning.
Kitchen – One way to go about deep cleaning your kitchen is to work clockwise so that you stay organized and make sure that you clean every space. Start your cleaning to the left or right of your stove and work clockwise/counterclockwise. Your stove is most likely the dirtiest part of your kitchen and saving it for last is a good idea because of the amount of grease and grime you will collect. The sink is going to be another main focus. Make sure to really get this clean by using a EPA-registered disinfectant.
Bedroom – A great way to start off your bedroom cleaning is to start with your bed. Strip your bed and clean everything including your shams and comforter /duvet cover. Some pillows are machine washable, just check the label. When putting your pillows in the dryer, throw in about 1-2 tennis balls in to ensure fluffiness. Some people also like to flip their mattress about once a year. This may be a good time to do so. Closets and dressers can be the hardest parts of bedroom cleaning. Some people use the “two year rule,” which means if you have not worn something in two years, you probably won’t be wearing it anytime soon. Make two separate piles when cleaning: the ‘give away’ and ‘throw away’ pile.
Bathroom – With spring cleaning, use this time to clean up areas of your bathroom that you typically would not on a weekly basis. First, start with taking down curtains, blinds, draperies, etc. and clean them. It is important to follow their directions for cleaning when doing this. The next thing to do is to wash the walls and dust the ceiling, corners, and vents. If you have cabinets in your bathroom, wash the inside and outside of these.
We hope that some of these tips can help you get the most out of your spring cleaning. Happy cleaning!
