Here are the 10 spring cleaning tips
- Know your cleaning personality and adapt to it: There are two major types of cleaning personalities; the chore procrastinators and the stress cleaners. You need to know the type of cleaner you are before you can start planning a cleaning routine that can work for or against you.
- Break the cleaning process into stages: Spring cleaning can be very stressful. It may take a long time, sometimes it ends up becoming a marathon, but that’s only if you let it. The whole cleaning process can be broken down into simpler processes to make you more effective and faster. Follow these steps:
- First, dust the open surfaces with a dusting wand or a brush. Then, use the furniture polish to shine the surfaces quickly.
- Then, clean the switch plates and doors with a damp microfiber cloth to remove smudges, germs, and fingerprints.
- Next, clean the ceiling fans by first dusting them with a brush, and then using a clean wet cloth to wipe off the blades. Then, allow the ceiling fans to dry.
- Finally, concentrate on the baseboards. Use a microfiber cloth or mop to clean the debris and dust that accumulate on the baseboards’ surface.
- Work with your homemade natural cleansers: Cleaning with chemicals may seem effective, but they have many side effects. However, more natural cleaning solutions can achieve the same result with little or no side effects. So, we are saying it is possible and more effective to mix your homemade cleaning solutions. These homemade solutions can be used on a variety of surfaces without damaging them. Many ingredients can be mixed to make a great natural cleaning solution, and here are examples;
- Some water, some rubbing alcohol, natural dish soap, baking soda, vinegar, peppermint, essential oils, and lemon. These substances can be selected and mixed according to what you want to use them for, put in a spray bottle, and applied directly to the affected areas.
- Make kitchen cleaning a regular exercise: The kitchen is obviously where the food is being made, so cleaning the kitchen can never be overemphasized. The kitchen walls, floors, sinks, surfaces, ovens, fridges, dishes, utensils, cabinets, and every part of the kitchen ought to be free from dirt and germs. You can always use the said homemade cleaners instead of chemicals, at least in the kitchen. This will limit the number of toxic substances that can get into our foods. Vinegar, baking soda, and lemon are great ingredients for cleaning the kitchen. Make sure to wipe all surfaces clean and disinfect as often as possible.
- Take care of your trash: The trash is where dirt is kept, no doubt about that. But it is not ok to have trash and still have a dirty home or a home that does not smell nice. Take, for example, you cooked fish for dinner, and you want to dispose of the remains, do you put it directly into the trash? If yes, then how do you expect your home to smell nice? There are other instances where our disposal habits are doing more harm than good in the home, and they should be treated properly. If things can produce a foul smell, they should be kept in dryer sheets to absorb the spills and even mask the odors.
And for the bonus tip:
- Make sure to clean your toilets and bathrooms thoroughly: Cleaning these two areas are the top priority when you need to clean your home. This is because most bacteria reside in these areas of the home. There are many cleaning practices that can be used to make these areas sparklingly clean, and you should stick to those practices. The water closets, the bathtubs, the sinks, the walls, and the floors of the toilet should be properly cleaned with the right cleaning products.
Spring cleaning should be done as frequently as possible. Leaving your house unclean will definitely lead to the buildup of germs, scum, bacteria, viruses, and other toxic substances. You do not need to wait until your home is dirty before spring cleaning. It should become more of a habit than a task. That way, cleaning becomes much easier.
In conclusion, we believe you have been able to learn a thing or two about spring cleaning your home. So, get out your things, and let’s start cleaning today.
