The tips below will help you get the most out of your spring cleaning experience:
- Clear out the Clutter
Take the opportunity to dig into the closets, storage spaces, and of course, the garage. You have probably got a veritable treasure trove of old clutter that is taking up space. This is a great time for a yard sale or organize a community yard sale with a neighbor.
- Room by Room
Try to focus on just one room. It is best to complete one room a day. This will make the whole job seem more manageable and you will probably get things cleaned more thoroughly than if you tried to tackle the whole house at once.
- A little more Laundry
One of the things that we rarely attend to is the state of our draperies, shower curtains and rugs. Gather up all the linen in the house and have it laundered. You will be surprised at how much brighter your home will look.
- A Room with a View
It is time to tackle the windows. Set aside a day to give your windows a good scrubbing. Clean off the screens as well. Once done, your home will sparkle.
- Daylight Savings
Take this time to replace all the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
