My Spring Cleaning Tips
I usually start my cleaning routine by creating a list – this will ensure that you won’t miss any of the jobs that you need to finish. As you write down a list of projects in each room, don’t forget these imperative things:
- Clean by size. Clean each room in your house according to size. Smaller rooms first as they are typically easier to clean. This is also an excellent way to stay motivated as completing each room is an accomplishment, and you will want to continue!
- Make your toilet sparkle. Your toilet works hard, and as a mother, you know how quickly it can get dirty and scrubbing it is only half the battle. However, a toilet cleaner like 2000 Flushes® Bleach will keep your toilet cleaner longer by using powerful chlorine to bleach away stains and keep the bowl continuously sanitary, stain-free and deodorized. Did you know that 2000 Flushes Bleach kills 99.9% of bacteria? With a new, concentrated formula, it delivers continuous cleaning action for up to 4 months. Made with a unique formula, 2000 Flushes Bleach freshens your bowl and keeps the water crystal clear with every flush. I don’t know about you, but I would rather be flushing than scrubbing!
- Get a cleaning caddy. Be sure that you have a caddy to carry all of your cleaning supplies from room to room. You will save a lot of time by not having to run back and forth.
- Don’t forget the windows. Be sure to put a good amount of focus on your windows. It’s easy to overlook cleaning the windows if they don’t appear obviously dirty. However, once they are cleaned, you will be amazed at how much it brightens the entire house! Also, be sure to clean both the inside and outside of the windows.
- Clean top to bottom. Regardless of which room you are in, start with the top of the room (or the ceiling) first. You will save yourself a ton of time and frustration.
- Kitchen Appliances. You may not think much of it, but appliances can develop some build up over time. Take a little bit of time and focus on cleaning the inside and outside of your refrigerator, stove/oven and microwave. Also be sure to wipe down your toaster, coffee pot and any other countertop appliances that you use. It will brighten up space.
- Don’t forget the mattress. You rarely see your bed, so chances are, you rarely clean it. Be sure to vacuum and spot clean your mattress during your Spring cleaning session.
- Wash your washing machine. Your washing machine washes clothes every day, but do you ever wash it? When you are Spring cleaning, run a vinegar rinse through your machine to keep it fresh and clean.
- Clean your cleaning supplies. No spring cleaning tips are complete without cleaning the cleaning supplies. Think about it. You sweep up dirt day after day, but have you ever cleaned your broom? Take your broom and rinse it out in a tub of warm water. Your floors will be a lot cleaner.
- Spot clean walls. While you are doing your Spring cleaning, be sure to walk around and check out your walls looking for any spots that need to be wiped clean.
