5 Quick Spring Cleaning Tips (Are You Ready For Spring?)
Spring is here!
And while you’re probably just as excited to see the sun as you are to get your home in tip-top shape, I know how hard it can be to find the time.
Especially when you’re also trying to get your life together and make sure everything’s ready for your big move.
But don’t worry!
I’ve got a few quick ways for you to clean up your space and make it feel like home again so that you can enjoy springtime without having to worry about cleaning.
What To Do During Spring Cleaning?
Spring is here, and with it comes the opportunity to clean up your house!
Whether you’re a neat freak or just need to get rid of some clutter, spring cleaning is the perfect time to do it.
To help you get started, I’ve put together a list of all the things you should do during your spring cleaning—and all the things you shouldn’t forget about:
1) Clean Out Your Closets
Spring is a time to start fresh and clean out the clutter that’s been sitting in your closets.
It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the idea of going through all of your clothes and shoes, but it doesn’t have to be!
Just take each piece out one at a time and ask yourself: do I wear this?
If so, put it back in the closet.
If not, donate it or toss it. You’ll be surprised how quickly you can go through everything once you start!
2) Check Up On Your Appliances And Electronics
Spring is the perfect time to give your appliances and electronics a checkup!
You want to make sure that they’re all in top working order before you start using them again.
That way, you won’t have any surprise problems when you turn them on.
For example, maybe your refrigerator doesn’t seem to be cooling properly.
Or, maybe the dishwasher isn’t cleaning dishes as well as it used to.
Or, maybe your stovetop seems like it’s taking forever to heat up.
Whatever the problem is, don’t ignore it!
Check it out now so that you can enjoy using your appliances throughout the rest of the year.
3) Wash Windows Inside And Out
Washing windows is one of the most important steps to take during spring cleaning.
First, you’ll want to make sure you have your supplies ready: a bucket, some water, and some window cleaner.
You can also use vinegar if you want to avoid chemicals.
Start by washing the inside of your windows with a sponge or soft cloth.
Then, move on to the outside of the windows, making sure not to get any water on the inside of them!
4) Clean Dust Off Everything
Get out the broom, the vacuum, and some fresh air.
Dust off your furniture and items around the house that have been neglected.
This means all of those hard-to-reach places, like bookshelves or other surfaces, collect dust over time.
You can also clean off your windows and mirrors with a damp cloth to get rid of any fingerprints or smudges.
This will make your home look brighter and more inviting for spring!
5) Rearrange Furniture
You can rearrange your furniture any time of the year, but spring cleaning is the perfect time to go through your home and make sure everything has its place.
It’s a good idea to start with big-ticket items like tables, chairs, and couches.
If they don’t fit well in their current locations, it might make sense to move them around.
If you have any pieces of furniture that haven’t been used in years, it’s time to decide what to do with them now.
If there are no takers in your family or circle of friends, consider donating them or selling them.
5 Quick Spring Cleaning Tips
Spring is finally here!
That means it’s time to clear out the cobwebs and bring in some fresh air.
Of course, spring cleaning doesn’t have to be a big ordeal.
There are plenty of quick, easy ways to make sure your home is ready for warmer weather and you don’t even need a lot of supplies.
Here are 5 tips for getting your house ready for spring:
Sometimes, the best way to clean is to start with a clean slate.
To declutter your home, set aside an hour or two to go through all of the items in your home and decide whether you really want them there or not.
If it’s something that you don’t use or love anymore, get rid of it!
You can also look for duplicates and donate them to charity, or sell them online if they’re in good condition and/or valuable.
This will help you clear up space and make room for new things.
And it will also help you get rid of things that are taking up space in your house but aren’t being used!
2) Wash Walls With Vinegar And Water
Vinegar is a great cleaner.
It’s cheap, smells great, and can be used for everything from washing dishes to cleaning your bathroom!
You can even use it to wash walls!
To do this, mix together equal parts water and white vinegar in a spray bottle.
Spray the mixture onto the walls, let it sit for a few minutes, then wipe it down with a damp cloth.
3) Clean Out The Fridge
It’s time to get rid of all those old leftovers and take stock of what you have in there.
You should be able to find some old produce that needs to be tossed, and if there are any foods that are past their sell-by date, throw those out too.
If you don’t know how long a particular food has been in your fridge, check its expiration date on the package or label and make sure it hasn’t passed.
4) Clean Out Your Pantry
You’ve got to get rid of that old food!
It’s a breeding ground for bacteria and other nasty stuff, and it just isn’t doing you any favors.
So go through your pantry, cupboards, and fridge, and get rid of anything that’s been there for more than a year.
You’ll be amazed at how much space you free up once you start tossing things out.
And then you can replace them with healthy foods that will serve your body better!
5) Sweep Floors
If you’re looking for a way to make your home feel fresh after a long winter, sweeping the floors is an easy and satisfying way to start.
It doesn’t matter if your home is carpeted or hardwood; all floors need to be swept regularly.
Dust and dirt can build up on top of the floor, causing it to look dirty even when it’s not.
A thorough sweep will help you get rid of any dust bunnies hiding under your furniture and make sure that your home looks and feels clean again!
How Do I Clean My Spring In One Day?
There are many ways to clean your spring in one day, but the most effective way is to use a spring cleaning kit.
These kits contain an assortment of cleaning solutions and tools for you to use.
They are very easy to use and require no special training or know-how.
The first step in cleaning your spring is to remove any debris from the area around it.
You can use a broom or a leaf blower to do this, depending on what kind of debris you find in your yard.
Once the area is clear, spray down your spring with water from a garden hose.
This will help loosen up any dirt that might still be stuck on the surface of your spring.
Next, spray some soap onto a sponge or rag and wipe down all surfaces of your spring, including its sides and bottom.
You should also wipe down any nearby rocks or plants with soap so that they don’t look dirty after you’re done washing down your spring itself!
After you’ve gotten all sides of the spring clean using soap alone, use another sponge or rag.
Dip the rag in white vinegar instead of water when wiping off any remaining dirt from those same areas again.
This time make sure not to get any soap left behind!
How Do You Spring Clean Like A Pro?
Spring cleaning is a great way to make your home feel fresh and new.
Here’s how to do it like a pro!
1) Make A Plan
To clean like a pro, you need to make a plan.
Think about what needs to be done, what tools you’ll need, and the order in which you want to complete tasks.
This will help you stay on track and avoid getting sidetracked!
2) Get Organized
Before you clean, you need to take stock of everything in your home.
This is the first step toward getting your house in order.
Make sure that every room has a designated place for everything: toys, shoes, clothes, and so on.
If you have kids, this is particularly important as they’re more likely to lose things if they don’t know where they belong.
When you’re done with this step, it’s time to get out the vacuum cleaner and start cleaning!
3) Clean As You Go
This is the most important thing to keep in mind when spring cleaning.
Don’t wait until the end of the day to tackle a mess, because that way lies madness.
When you see dirt or clutter, take care of it right then and there, and never let it fester into something worse.
It’s all about small steps.
If you can’t get rid of an entire mess in one fell swoop, don’t worry about it!
Just chip away at it until everything is tidied up and sparkling clean.
How Do I Get Motivated To Spring Clean?
You know you should be spring cleaning, but you just don’t feel like getting started.
I get it.
Spring cleaning can be a drag.
But I’ve got some tips and tricks to help you get motivated!
1) Get An Accountability Partner
If you’re looking to get motivated to spring clean, why not try getting an accountability partner?
You know, a friend who will remind you of what needs to be done and when it needs to be done.
It’s a great way to stay on track and keep yourself accountable for all the work you’ve got going on in your home.
2) Make It A Game
The best way to stay motivated when spring cleaning is to make it a game.
Set yourself a time limit, and keep track of how many minutes you work and how much progress you make.
You can also challenge yourself to see how much space you can clear in a certain amount of time.
When you’re done, treat yourself!
3) Use Visual Reminders
You need a visual reminder to spring clean.
The best way to get motivated to spring clean is by using pictures of what you want your space to look like.
This helps you visualize what you’re working toward.
If you can’t take a picture before the cleaning begins, take one after the cleaning is complete and hang it somewhere prominent in your home so you can see it every day.
