Finally the days are starting to get a little longer, the sun is setting later and before we know it spring will be on our doorstep. If you have followed my recent posts you will now know how to store your winter clothes away ready for the change in season.
Now I am going to share with you a list of Spring Cleaning essentials. There is nothing like the arrival of spring to clear out those cobwebs and welcome in the new season with a spring clean.
The following is a list of spring-cleaning essentials that will keep your home in tip-top shape: –
Clean the fridge and freezer, oven, microwave and dishwasher.
Wipe down the pantry and throw out any out-of-date foods.
Clean and sanitise the garbage bin.
Wash pillow and mattress protectors and bed skirts.
Turn your mattress.
Vacuum under the beds.
Check the medicine cabinet for out-of-date items and safely discard.
Toss the kids’ bath toys in a nylon wash bag in the washing machine.
Give all tiled and glass areas a good clean and attend to any dirty-looking
grout with a toothbrush.
Put your washing machine on a clean cycle.
Clean behind your laundry appliances. Especially the dryer as lint can build
up over time.
■ Living and dining
Vacuum under furniture.
Give remote controls a thorough clean.
Wash the couch throws and cushion covers.
■ Throughout your home
Clean skirting boards and doors.
Clear out cobwebs.
Dust ceiling fans and light fixtures.
Check batteries in your smoke alarm.
Polish any wood and wax if necessary.
Replace any burnt-out lights with new energy saving LED globes
Remember to consider the planet when spring cleaning your home.
There are simple, effective and eco-friendly cleaners you can make up
yourself from everyday items such as baking soda and vinegar.
