Spring Into Spring Cleaning!

March 23, 2012

The sun is shining and the spring breeze is in the air.  For most of us, this is the perfect time to deep clean our homes, getting rid of those winter blues and welcoming warmer weather.


Here are some easy ways to get you into the swing of this year's spring cleaning:


Watch the sun shine through your windows.  Wipe off that grime that winter weather has left behind on your windows.  Clean them with a mix of white vinegar and water.  Use newspaper instead of paper towels to wipe your windows clean.

Once your windows are clean inside and out, open those windows and let the cool breeze clean your indoor air.  Since windows and doors have been shut all winter long, indoor air pollution builds up in the home.  Open those windows and air out your home.  After a few hours, close the windows and wipe up dust and pollen that has settled on furniture with a good microfiber cloth.  Vacuum your floors and carpets with a HEPA Filter vaccuum.

Clean out your refrigerator and get rid of old or stale items.  Wipe down the inside of the refrigerator and freezer with a liquid soap and warm water mix.  Clean out the cabinets and the pantry to make room for canning goods later in the season.

Pack up the winter blankets, hats, scarves, and gloves.  Store those winter flannel sheets and pajamas away neatly.  Donate unwanted or old items to Goodwill.  Make room for summer clothes and tons of fun!
