It’s Spring Cleaning Time

Winter has finally released it’s cold, snowy grip and spring has sprung. The warm weather and smell of the fresh spring breeze makes us anxious to throw open the windows. We’ve been closed up all winter and the air in our houses has become a bit stale.

No matter how careful we try to be, trudging in and out in our boots has ground dirt into the carpet. It’s time to get busy cleaning!

It is quite a chore to give the house a thorough top to bottom, deep down cleaning. The good thing is that once it’s done, we can stand back, enjoy our work and realize we won’t have to do it for another year.

Start your cleaning by clearing out. There’s no sense in cleaning around things you aren’t going to keep. Eliminate all the clutter you can by going room to room with 2 boxes. Place objects in one box for a yard sale, and things to donate in the other.

Bring along a garbage bag for things that are in too bad of shape to be useful. Trade out your winter clothes for summer attire. Take this opportunity to clean out the medicine chest by throwing away expired medication.

You want to work top to bottom and start at one end and clean around in a circle. That way you won’t be tracking over things you have already cleaned. Remove window treatments and you won’t be fighting with them when you wash the walls.

Clean ceiling fans and light fixtures. Roll up any area rugs and move them to another room. Move all the furniture away form the walls so you can vacuum and shampoo the carpeting. Consider buying rollers as this makes moving furniture much easier.

Pull appliances as far away from walls as you can so that you can clean behind them, and vacuum the coils on the fridge if necessary. Have a few coolers nearby to hold food while you clean the fridge and freezer. Clean out the cupboards and toss expired food and spices. Scrub down the inside and replace any yucky shelf liners.

Wash windows on a cloudy day. The window solution will dry too quickly on a sunny day which will leave streaks and make the job harder. Some people like the squeegee method and others prefer using newspaper. Do whatever works best for you.

Don’t forget other things that are not on your usual daily cleaning list. For instance, baseboards, door frames, and light switches.

Nothing looks or smells better than a freshly cleaned home. It also gives us a great sense of accomplishment, knowing our homes are free of germs and dust.

Making sure contents are well organized.
