Tips for spring cleaning your home
1. Clean room by room
It is easier to clean room by room. Tackling everything at once can be overwhelming and takes a lot of time, rather clean each room separately. Start with Bathrooms and kitchens, they are known as ‘wet areas’ and take the most time to clean.
2. Get everyone in your household involved
Make spring cleaning fun. Put on some music and make it a family activity. Extra hands can make cleaning go so much faster. You can even make cleaning a game. Everyone loves games So, why not make a game out of cleaning?
3. Keep cleaning supplies to a minimum
You do not need a lot of cleaning products for a successful spring clean. A bunch of cleaning products can create even more clutter, rather choose a few that are non-toxic and that can clean most surfaces. Microfiber cloths are a must have, they are super absorbent and gentle, so they work on all kinds of messes and surfaces. They can even be used for sanitizing.
