Clear out the cobwebs!
There’s no better time than spring to give your home a good thorough clean. When the weather starts to warm up, it’s a sign to burst open your windows – and you’re cleaning supplies cabinet! Check out our easy ideas to spruce up, clean up, and get your house in order this spring, or any time of the year!
1) Declutter your home
There’s a simple rule you can use to declutter your home. If you haven’t used something in the past six months, then you should consider throwing it away. The only exception to rule is seasonal items and clothing. Separate out the ‘keep, ‘donate’ or ‘throw away’ items and clearly label them to avoid any treasures getting thrown away.
2) Remove pet hairs with rubber gloves
Pets are your best friend but not when it comes to pet hair! That’s where a pair of gloves comes in handy, because of the material they’re made from, and the friction it creates, hairs will naturally stick to them. So, weather you need to de-hair your sofa, curtains or bedding, your rubber gloves can sort you out.
3) Get your fridge sparkling clean
We’re all guilty of not cleaning the fridge as often as we should. This means, that stains, food matter and water can build up. To battle this, you need a few household items; an old toothbrush and toothpaste. The chemicals found in toothpaste will help remove stains easily and the toothbrush provides friction and accuracy that you will need to complete the job!
4) Steam clean your microwave
Dirt and grime can easily build up in your microwave. It’s one of those appliances that you use so often that you take it for granted. So, a good clean every once in a while will do it no harm. Tackling built-up food and grease normally calls for bucket loads of elbow grease!
5) Revamp your wardrobe
You may have a wonderful selection of outfits, but chances are that you don’t wear them all-year round. So, it’s time to revamp your wardrobe. First separate your clothes into seasons: spring, summer, autumn and winter. Then try your outfits on. Do they still fit? If not donate them, then separate the seasons into your wardrobe so only the current season is on show.
