Decorating for the Artistic Soul

Proven Effective Spring Cleaning Tips

Posted on: March 7, 2007


March is here and spring is on its way! With the blooming flowers and the chirping birds comes spring cleaning- which many of us love and some of us hate.

Here are some spring cleaning tips to help you spruce up your home, your life and your soul – just in time to enjoy the great weather that’s on its way!

1. Don’t try to do it all at once – Spring cleaning is often an opportunity to clear out all that yearly clutter, winter bulk, outdoor debris and more. Don’t think you have to hit it all in just a couple of days or you can become overwhelmed. Formulate a plan for when and how you will tackle each aspect of your spring cleaning and then do it a little at a time.
2. Clean as you go- It’s always easier to remove new dirt, rather than old dirt. Clean as you go throughout the year and you won’t have so much to tackle at spring cleaning time.
3. Never mix cleaning products – It’s an easy mistake to make while you are in the groove of cleaning but many chemicals are toxic when mixed so be careful to keep your different cleaners separated.
4. Wash your walls from the bottom up – Starting at the bottom helps reduce streaking which can occur in walls.
5. Dust from top to bottom- If you start at the bottom, the dust on top will just get knocked back down again. Begin at the top and work your way down.
6. Use caution on ladders- Many accidents happen on ladders and stepstools while people are trying to reach something high (i.e. clean ceiling fans, dust high shelves, etc). Make sure you only stand on objects made for holding human weight, such as approved ladders.
7. Wash knick knacks- Take small knick knacks and collectibles and wash them instead of simply dusting. This will prevent the dust from getting built up year after year and becoming nearly impossible to clean.
8. Remember to clean appliances – You should clean underneath, behind and beside all of your appliances as well as the exterior and interior of them very well. Remove lint and dust from the dryer, from underneath the refrigerator, etc.
9. Get help with heavy lifting- Be sure you do not overwork yourself or strain your back with heavy lifting. Get help if you can’t lift or move furniture and other items yourself.
10. Clean out- Take this time to clean out old items, clothing that doesn’t fit, appliances you never use and other items that are cluttering up your home. Have a yard sale, call the Goodwill, and get rid of the junk!

If you want to spruce up your home this spring, Unique Décor Online has some great spring/summer items for decorating your home. Take this Rose Vine Mailbox for example. You can show all of your neighbors how much you love the blooming spring season.
