Spring Cleaning Part 2.

 Today it's time for Part 2 of Spring Cleaning. 

Systematically tackle one space at a time

Spring cleaning doesn't have to be a one-stop shop. Cleaning should be organised and can take several days. You can tackle one room at a time, first getting rid of things that you no longer need and that are just clogging up the space. Then move on to dusting, cleaning, vacuuming, etc. in the order that suits you best.

Be ruthless with unnecessary items

Admit to yourself that some things in your flat are not needed and have not been useful to you in any way for quite some time. Spring cleaning is a great time to get rid of these things, throw them away or give them to someone who will benefit from them.

Let your home breathe

A cluttered or overcrowded space creates a feeling of confusion, crampedness and stress, and quashes inner peace. That's why it's so important to declutter and create a home that feels fresh and energises us with positive energy. Open the windows and let the smell of spring into your home, and slowly, in peace, you can clean out your winter wardrobe, fold it up and put it away in the wipe-clean cupboards.

Spring sunshine reveals the truth

The first rays of the sun are relentless in revealing every speck of dust that was hidden in the shadows of the rigid days of winter. To make sure that this doesn't happen at the least opportune moment, for example in the presence of guests, make sure that you dust your furniture thoroughly as well as your curtains. These can be removed and washed in the washing machine or steam cleaned. The same goes for carpets, which also call for deep cleaning and vacuuming.

Try to get the smooth surfaces of your home to shine again. Pay particular attention to kitchen and bathroom elements, floors and windows. You can use industrial cleaners or home-made eco-cleaners such as vinegar and baking soda, which remove limescale, or lemon, which has a disinfectant effect.

Hidden corners

When spring cleaning, also tackle those nooks and crannies that you may have deliberately overlooked in winter because they are harder to reach. These include, for example, that dark space behind the wardrobe, behind the TV or behind the computer. It sounds like a lot of work, but the feeling of a perfectly clean home will be phenomenal.

Make sure you have a mattress

Bring the spring mood into your bedroom too for a restful night's sleep that will ward off spring tiredness. Flip your mattress over every three months, and flip it over by placing the bottom on top to maintain its shape. Also vacuum the mattress. Shake and vacuum the pillows and blankets.

Invite the whole family to clean

Seasonal cleaning is a big project for one person, so you can invite other household members to join in, as working in pairs or together is quicker and more fun.
