How to Prepare Your Home for an Effective Spring Cleaning

Although we may still be experiencing the occasional flurry of snow, it's undeniable that warm spring days are right around the corner! While spring cleaning may seem like a task that looms over us annually, there are many ways we can prepare for spring cleaning that make it more efficient and more effective, ensuring you get the most out of your deep clean.

First and foremost, it is important to declutter. This is a crucial first step in every room of your house. Any clothes in your closet that you haven't worn in the last year can be donated, as well as toys that your children have outgrown. This is also a good time to go through your refrigerator and freezer to toss any expired items that may be crowding the shelves.

The next step in preparing for an effective spring clean is to prepare your cleaning supplies. This not only includes making sure you have all the tools and organic cleaning products that you plan to use, but also ensuring the tools themselves are clean enough to properly clean your home. This may involve cleaning out your vacuum, washing your reusable cleaning cloths, and sanitizing any scrubbing brushes or mops.

Last but not least, spring cleaning is much easier to tackle when you have a plan, so a check-list is a must for anyone feeling overwhelmed. This will not only help you remember everything you're intending to clean, it will help you to get an idea of how much time your overall spring clean will take. If it appears to be a large undertaking, you can then split the check list into multiple days, tackling one room at a time.

As a bonus tip, prepare a fun playlist for your spring clean! Whether it’s your favorite songs to dance to or a captivating podcast, it’ll surely make the cleaning time fly by.

After a long winter indoors, we're ready to shed our cold-weather clutter and start fresh for spring! With these tips, you'll be prepared for an effective and satisfying deep clean this spring.
