Spring cleaning goes back to the time when the homemakers would take everything outside of the home as soon as the weather became bearable. Rugs as well as mattresses were beat out to take care of the grime that built up. The interior of the home was swept and mopped getting rid of the dust and germs which had collected throughout the winter season. These days, the process is easier than it was in the past.
Start with getting prepared. Develop your plan and prioritize so to stay on task. If you have alot of stuff that you will be removing from your home, order a dumpster bin ahead of time so there is a super easy way of disposal. Get started with the rooms that are your least favorite to clean. Keep supplies in a container that can be taken from one room to the next.
Plan the big event for a day when you’ve got help. Let your kids get involved in tasks that are suitable for them. Ask teens and the man of the house to help you with the heavy lifting. If you be single, find a friend who can help. You might need to offer to do the same for them the following weekend. Having help often makes the work go better and the work will seem easier.
The cleaning goes a lot faster using the right tools. Micro-fiber towels can help to speed cleaning without just pushing dust around. Use a steam cleaner for floor cleaning that does not need chemicals and leaves no residue. Add an extension wand to your vacuum help with cleaning of cobwebs without making a mess. Other accessories can help to clean upholstery or small areas. The rental dumpster provides ample space for all your junk or other things to be removed from your house.
Don’t make the job harder than it should be. Microfiber cloths can dust and clean surfaces without the need to use a cleaning solution. When cleaning hard surfaces such as tubs or sinks, apply the cleaning solution allow it ten minutes or more to work prior to wiping down the surface. Add a cup of water to your microwave oven, heat on high for 1 minute and permit the steam to loosen splatters. Use Polident tablets designed to clean dentures to scrub toilet bowls easily.
Always have an abundance of clean cloths to avoid streaking surfaces. With microfiber towels, rinse off in water and squeeze to clean the wet rag. Shake micro-fiber rags used dry for dusting, hold inside the trash or plastic store shopping bag and shake to clean. As soon as dry rag can no longer be cleaned by shaking, rinse it in water and use for wet cleaning.
The secret to minimizing spring cleaning is to be sure your house is clean all year round. Squeegee the shower after every use to avoid build-up. Maintain your weekly cleaning of your home. Line trash cans with a bag every time they are used. Smaller restroom containers may be lined with reused plastic shopping bags. When stuff begins to accumulate in the home or garage, call for a rental dumpster and remove unneeded clutter. Spread cleaning activities throughout the week with a few moments invested every day to keep the home looking great day in and day out.
