Spring is the perfect season to refresh, reorganise and renew your home and living space after a long winter, which is what makes spring cleaning a popular tradition and for some, a ritual. However, it’s normal when starting to feel overwhelmed and not know which room to tackle first. We’ve put together some expert tips to help you spring-clean your living space in an effective and convenient way. From decluttering to re-organising, our top tips will leave your home feeling refreshed and brand new.
Involve the whole family
Teamwork makes the dream work, so why not get the whole family involved to tackle the task of spring cleaning? The entire household can play a role in quickly and efficiently cleaning the home. We recommend assigning everyone their own task for maximum efficiency.
Create a Checklist
Checklists are a great way to make the cleaning process much more productive. This method will also ensure nothing is left or forgotten, it will help you to keep on track and ensure every corner of your home has been cleaned.
Declutter, declutter, declutter!
When it comes to revamping and organising your space, one of the most important steps is to start the decluttering process. This includes everything from outdated clothing, shoes, furniture, and decorations. Lead with the intent to only fill your space with items you love and use. Donating or throwing away unnecessary or old items will make your spring cleaning process way easier.
Break it up, Room by Room
We always advise to start spring cleaning one room at a time. This will allow you to be able to tick off each room once completed and ensure nothing is left unfinished or forgotten. Avoid trying to clean the whole house in an unrealistic time frame and make sure to give yourself realistic cleaning tasks.
Freshen the Air
One of the best ways to transform your room is by using air fresheners such as Natural Oil diffusers or scented candles. This will add an inviting and fresh smell without using harmful ingredients. They also provide therapeutic benefits and help to lift the mood of your living environment. Fresh flowers are also a great way to add the smell of spring to your home!
Deep Clean your Fridge
This is often one of the most avoided tasks because of how cluttered it can get over time. We always recommend setting a good amount of time aside to take on this task! Remove everything and wipe down the interior and exterior of the fridge. Take time to clean the shelves and bins with warm soapy water to give them the ultimate clean and refresh.
Reorganise your Bookshelf
The books we read change as we go through different seasons of the year and stages of life. Reorganize accordingly by adding books that fit your personality and mood. Old books and magazines still in decent condition can be donated to local stores or libraries.
