I can’t wait winter will soon be winding down and springtime temperatures will be hopping right into our gardens. And that means it’s time to prepare for spring cleaning. It’s time to give your place a good deep clean.
Spring is right around the corner, and for most of us it’s an exciting time to get our homes in order. From the interiors of your home to the exterior, getting your home ready for spring will ensure you’ll be ready to enjoy the warmer weather once it comes. Before you get started you probably have some re-organising to do. Spring cleaning usually involves getting rid of old clothing, furnishings, and odds and ends.
National Spring Cleaning week here in the UK starts on March 4th. But really spring cleaning can happen at any time of year and in any type of weather. Many of us like to clean while temperatures are mild, the sun is shinning there are fewer bugs, and pollen and other allergens have not become problematic.
Essential items to get ready for your big Spring Clean
- Mop and Bucket
- Pink Duster
- Carpet Cleaner
- Multi Purpose spray – A generic one that can be used in the Bathroom, kitchen etc.
- Specialised cleaners, for wood, silver etc. This Bona wood Cleaner is great for real wood products.
- Paper Towels also come in handy
- stiff bristled brushes
- Heavy Duty Rubbish bags
- Plastic Tubs for organising
- Face Mask (if you are sensitive to dust)
Follow a plan
Set aside some time in your diary for Spring Cleaning. Make sure you book nothing else in on these days and just really go for it.
Write down a list of what you want to achieve, plan room by room and stick to it. I have created a Spring Cleaning Checklist which may really help you keep on top and in order.
Create a fun playlist
Create a fun playlist with your favorite music. Music is a great way to stay motivated and can make tedious obligations like cleaning fun. Pretend the mop is a microphone and belt out your favorite fun as you make those bathrooms shine
Freshen up your rooms by removing unnecessary objects from tabletops and shelves, store them accordingly or you don’t need them throw away or give to charity Replace them with a single arrangement of fresh flowers. Flowers really can bring a room together and create a sense of happiness. House hold declutter can be a problem for many people and it so easily builds up into a huge mountain but use your spring cleaning time to tackle that mountain.
Go for it
Load up your cleaning caddy and go for it and most of all try to enjoy it.
Don’t forget when decluttering have a think about it you could possibly donate or resell the item. Take a look at Ruths guide to making money selling on ebay

Happy Spring Clean
