Spring Cleaning Tips!
Spring Cleaning Tips
There’s no better feeling than coming home to a clean house. With spring right around the corner, for many this means Spring Cleaning is quickly approaching. For most it is best to plan this for a weekend day when nothing is going on so you have the whole day to clean and organize top to bottom.
This spring cleaning is a perfect opportunity to rid your home of the “stuff” you can live without. Your whole family will feel the benefits of rooms and spaces that can breathe. Before you even start the cleaning, get five trash bags and start filling them with items your family has outgrown or no longer needs. If you don’t love it, toss it. Trash anything that is broken and serves no purpose and donate items to local shelters and you’ll feel much better before you even start.
Keep a list of what all you want to deep clean. Below is a checklist of the things many like to do once a year that are easy to forget.
