Spring cleaning can be difficult, but the results are always satisfying! Since many of us let things slide in the winter months, beginning spring cleaning can be an overwhelming chore.
With winter over its peak, spring is just around the corner, and with it will comes this potentially daunting seasonal task. The basics of spring cleaning usually include decluttering and reorganizing, maybe even redecorating, but in this article we’re looking at a few things that can be easy to overlook.
- Vacuum Everything
Of course, vacuuming is one of the first things that we think of when we clean, but there are certain parts of the house that are easy to overlook, and that can gather huge amounts of dust. Areas like air vents and blinds usually require special attention. When vacuuming hard to reach areas, try out different attachments, for instance the brush attachment, to see what works best.
- Check Expiry Dates
Begin by cleaning out the fridge and freezer of anything that is obviously expired, before turning your attention to the less obvious items. In the kitchen, go through spices, baking ingredients, and any other foods in the pantry that may have gone stale. Extend the cleaning to household items, toiletries, and cosmetics that may also have expiry dates.
- Clean and/or Dust Light Fixtures
Depending how often you dust your light fixtures, they may need a lot of attention. It can take dusting, or even scrubbing, to get them their cleanest. Certain glass light fixtures can even go in the dishwasher.
- Replace Batteries
Spring cleaning is a great time to replace batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. This is a very important step that is easily forgotten!
- Clean The Walls
Walls don’t usually show dust, but it can definitely build up. Whether you’re planning to paint or not, take this time to thoroughly dust all the walls in your house. If your walls are showing dirt, it may be time for a scrub. Cleaning your walls will brighten up the whole house.
- Clean Doors
Doors and door knobs are both touched very often, and can easily collect dirt. Scrub down all doors and door knobs as part of your spring cleaning to make a big difference.
- Go Through Closets
Closets can end up as a bit of a dumping ground. Get a deep spring clean by going through closets, and purging all the items and clothing you no longer use or wear. If any of the items are donatable, take them to your local charity shop. Or, as the weather gets warmer, consider having a garage sale!
