If you’re ready to tackle your spring cleaning in 2021 like a pro, give these spring cleaning hacks a try:
Make a plan
The prospect of undertaking an intense cleaning of your entire home from top to bottom can feel a bit...intense. The trick is to make a plan for your deep clean and break the work down into manageable tasks. Get the tough stuff out of the way first. What’s going to be the most work? Do that first, then reward yourself with a break, then move on to the next task. Make a checklist. Take it room by room. Think about how good it will feel when you’re done!
To declutter is to de-stress
The heavy feeling you get from a cluttered home is real. Studies show that a cluttered home increases our stress levels. Stress is a part of life, but we can eliminate the unnecessary stress that comes from a cluttered, unorganized home. Give it a try and see how your mood improves. Here is a room-by-room declutter guide to help keep you going.
Stay as green as you clean
You may want to avoid using toxic chemicals when you’re trying to get things clean. These non-toxic household cleaning products will help you stay green as you clean. If you're the do-it-yourself type, you can easily make your own DIY natural cleaning products using common and non-toxic household items.
Take a top-down approach
Start at the ceiling and work your way down. This will help you avoid having to reclean once the dust settles. Remove the cobwebs from ceilings and upper corners of walls, then dust the furniture before sweeping and vacuuming the floors.
Keep that clean feeling
Once your home is sparkling clean, you’ll want to preserve that light and fresh feeling for as long as possible. Set a fresh new tone in your home by adding a pop of colour from new throw pillows, buy a fresh new set of sheets, or add some life to your living space with a new house plant. It will help keep the air clean while making your fresh, organized living space even more beautiful.
