The first step in an effective spring cleaning is finding the time, scheduling it in, and executing it. Our suggestion is to see what works best with your busy lifestyle. Whether it is to map out a few hours a week or block off a full day.
Spring cleaning gives you and your family the opportunity to rid your home of unnecessary items such as clothes that you have outgrown (always try and donate), items that serve no purpose (like that trinket you picked up on your last road trip), accumulated junk mail, and that pesky pantry that is full of uneaten, old food.
Tackling those baseboards that are overflowing with the day’s grime, dusting the blinds that are no longer white, shaking out the rug that your furry friend decided was its very own towel, and don’t forget about those ceiling fans.
The walls might not look like they need a bath, but they probably do. We tend to focus more on our floors and not so much on our walls, baseboards, and cabinets. However, they tend to get just as much dust, dirt, and gunk as the rest of the home. We recommend using a microfiber cloth to help make the job a little easier.
A deep scrub of your refrigerator, washing machine, dishwasher and even your sink will keep your home smelling fresh and squeaky clean. These tend to be the little things that we forget about so easily. One of our favorite tips to clean your disposal is to add a thinly cut lemon for a fresh smell, add a few ice cubes, and a teaspoon of salt to help clean any leftover food residue. You can also buy products designed specifically for the job.
We hope that these simple tips have motivated you to get into the spring cleaning spirit! We have attached below a printable PDF for you to use as a checklist. Remember, a clean home is a happy home… or is it a DSLD Home is a happy home?
