It seems like it took forever for it to come, but spring is finally here! Pretty soon you’ll be able to fill your weekends with fun outdoor activities. Before that though, it’s time for a little bit of spring cleaning. Although it’s not the most exciting thing to do, spring cleaning can be a satisfying and rewarding activity. Here are a few tasks to help you clean and declutter your home.
Thoroughly Dust Your Home
Floors, tables, bookshelves, ceiling fans, you name it and it’s sure to have some dust on it! Not only will dusting help your home look better, but it can reduce the amount of allergens in your home as well.
Over time your fridge, freezer and pantry are sure to become cluttered and unorganized. There may be some food hidden that you just forgotten about! Go through your food supply and organize everything you have. While your at it, check the expiration dates and throw out anything that has gone bad.
Raid Your Wardrobe
As you transition from winter to summer gear, this is the perfect opportunity to get rid of some old clothes. Go throw your closet and drawers and see if you have anything that you can get rid of. Some of your clothes may be out of style and haven’t been worn in years, while others might not even fit you anymore! You can set aside the clothes you no longer need and donate them.
Give Your Home A Deep Clean
Floors, counters, sinks, windows, everything in your home is sure to need a deep cleaning. Take out the vacuum, mop, polish and degreasers and clean every nook and cranny! There may be corners of your home that you have neglected to clean for a while. If it seems like too much, just take it one room at a time and see how much you can get done. It doesn’t need to all be cleaned in one day!
