Spring Cleaning Essentials
During quarterly cleaning, we like to pay special attention to our couches and other furniture! If you have pets like Stetson, this pet hair remover will change your life!
One of the most important reasons to spring clean is to improve the air quality in your home! It’s crazy how much dust, mold, and pet dander can accumulate over time. A thorough cleaning of your couches, carpets, upholstery, and air ducts can help to remove these allergens from your home, leaving you with cleaner and fresher air.
If you’re interested, consider an air purifier for your home!
Freshen up your bedding! Wash your bedding, including your comforter or duvet, and air out your mattress to freshen up your sleeping area.
Dust, sweep, vacuum, and mop your floors. And when you’re done, use a nice sturdy broom holder to store them!
Clean your appliances, such as your oven, refrigerator, and dishwasher, to remove any built-up grime and ensure they are working efficiently
Invest in some high-quality sponges to scrub your dishes and sink! We love Scrub Daddy and these heavy-duty sponges.
This electric spin scrubber makes it so easy to deep clean different areas in your bathroom! Consider using natural cleaners, such as vinegar, baking soda, and lemon juice. They’re effective and non-toxic.
We’re obsessed with this window squeegee — we use it in the shower, on the inside of our windows, mirrors, and counters!
While spring cleaning, try reducing clutter in your home! Cluttered spaces can be stressful and overwhelming, and can even affect your mental health. Clearing out unwanted items can help create a more peaceful and relaxing environment.
To organize your house, focus on one area at a time so it’s less overwhelming! For example, we just organized our whole cleaning closet. First, we took everything out and wiped it down.
Organize your cleaning supplies or other household stuff with containers like these from iDesign! They’re easily stackable and the bamboo lids are SO cute. We love how the open front bin makes it easy to quickly grab cleaning supplies. For items we don’t need as often, we prefer the medium-sized bin with handles. If you have anything larger, this bin comes in a larger size too!
You already know that we think labels make everything way better! These vinyl labels for cleaning supplies are exactly what we needed. The aesthetic honestly makes spring cleaning so fun!
Quarterly cleaning honestly helps you save time and money in the long run! By taking the time to deep clean your home, you can prevent problems such as mold and mildew from developing, which can be costly to repair. You can also save time and mental space by being more organized and knowing exactly where everything is in your home. An organized home is the best feeling!
Spring cleaning always boosts our productivity since our space is more organized and efficient! A cluttered desk or office can be distracting and make it difficult to focus on your work or household responsibilities.
