5 simple steps to a successful Spring Cleaning!

5 simple steps to a successful Spring Cleaning!
  1. Set out with a good mindset.
    • This isn’t a huge chore that you are undertaking. No! A detailed spring cleaning is a way you can better improve your mental and physical well being, and you are going to have fun! I hope…
  2.  Go room-by-room.
    • This helps make it easier to focus on what needs to be done. Start with the easiest room in the house and go from there- you’ll get less discouraged and there will be a lesser chance of you quitting your cleaning task before you’re done.
  3. De-clutter the room
    • Go through everything in groups- clothes, shoes, books, papers, etc. Get rid of anything you don’t want or use anymore. You could take it one step further and follow  tidying expert Marie Kondo’s method and get rid of anything that does not spark joy. Be sure to donate and recycle usable goods!
  4. Clean the room.
    • After you go through the contents of the room, go through the room to clean it. Simple multi-purpose cleaner and glass cleaner can do wonders, though be sure to check out these homemade household cleaners if you wanted to make your own natural solutions.
  5. Relax!
    • Enjoy your new, clean space. Maybe throw on an episode of Tidying Up, Marie Kondo’s new Netflix series we’re loving. Pour a glass of wine, kick up your feet and relax!
