19 Spring Cleaning tips for your home

20 Oct 16

The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and the flowers are blooming – spring has arrived and so has the time to give your home a spruce up with a spring clean.

Here are a few simple tips to help you get started with your spring clean:

General

  • Use microfibre coths, they reduce the need for cleaning chemicals and are reusable.
  • Disinfect your sponge by placing it in the microwave for a minute.
  • Clean from top to bottom, that way any dirt you knock down to the floor is picked up easily when you sweep the floor.
  • Choose the correct broom for your work. Indoors require a broom with finer bristles for picking up fine dirt particles. Outdoor areas require a broom with stiffer bristles to get into porous materials.
  • Store your brooms with the handle facing down, it helps to protect the bristles.
  • Pick a dustpan with a rubber strip to prevent that line of dust and dirt being left over.
  • Multitask. Completing two tasks at once will help complete the work quickly.

Kitchen

  • Start with your stove. It is generally the dirtiest item in the kitchen, and then move onto other areas.
  • Disinfect the sink. Sinks can become built up with bacteria over time.
  • Place a non-stick liner on the base of your oven, it becomes much easier to clean, by simply wiping it down with a damp cloth.

Bathroom

  • Rubbing lemon oil on your shower screen will help water to roll off of it quickly.
  • Wash your shower curtain by throwing it in your washing machine with a couple of towels, these will help clean it.
  • Keep drains clear by pouring drain cleaner down them. Pour boiling water down drains once a week to keep them clog free.
  • Wipe up loose hairs on your bathroom floor with a damp wad of toilet paper.

Bedroom

  • Making your bed will instantly make your bedroom look tidier.
  • Go through your wardrobe, donate or throw out what you haven’t worn for at least 12 months.
  • Keep only the essentials on your bedside table (alarm clock, tissues, and a lamp)

Laundry

  • Add two tennis balls to your dryer loads to remove static cling.
  • Wash using cold water, it cuts down on your power bills, excluding sheets and undergarments.
