Tops Tips For Spring Cleaning Your Apartment
It's that time of year again when we are all starting to come out of hibernation, bask in the early spring sunshine, and think about spring cleaning our apartments! Indeed, there is something rather rejuvenating and refreshing about getting down to a great spring cleaning session.
That being said, sometimes there is one massive hurdle that is standing in our way; where on earth do we start! Don't worry, I know that you are chomping at the bit to get going. You just need to be pointed in the right direction. That is where I come in! Allow me to indulge you in three great tips to get your spring cleaning off to a good start.
Get Those Winter Clothes Packed Away
It's not time for winter woolies and heavy coats anymore (at least I hope not). The sound of spring is in the air, and you need to rid your wardrobe of anything that doesn't resemble springtime. Carefully go through your wardrobe and remove everything that belongs to winter and autumn. That includes heavy scarves, gloves, hats, winter dresses, coats, and the list goes on. Winter clothes tend to take up a lot of space in an apartment so you will likely be surprised at how large a stockpile you create.
Of course, I know that you are going to be feeling rather excited about all of the extra space you have just freed up, but remember you do need to take the time to store your winter clothes correctly. First, get rid of clothes you didn't wear this past winter. The chances are you won't wear them next winter either. Once you have narrowed your winter wardrobe down to garments that deserve to be kept, ensure all items are clean and fresh before neatly storing them away.
It seems that our washing machine, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, and other appliances can often get ignored when we are carrying out our usual cleaning. That means you should most certainly include them in your spring cleaning. Nowadays there are plenty of specific cleaning materials available for each appliance so you don't need to worry about being on your hands and knees scrubbing all day long.
Hello Dust Free Blinds
Blinds can quickly accumulate dust. In the winter months it often goes unnoticed. However, once that hazy spring sunshine starts pouring in through the windows there is no way of avoiding it. Did you know that a dryer sheet can work well for dusting your blinds? The static on the sheet clings to the dust so that you get rid of it instead of simply scattering it.
Certainly, it is the time of year for getting your spring cleaning underway. There is no need to feel overwhelmed about where to start. Just think; clothes, appliances and blinds, and you will already be well on your way. Of course, once you have completed your spring cleaning don't forget to take the time to give yourself a pat on the back and admire your squeaky clean apartment.
