Spring cleaning is a required element in the good housewife’s schedule. Unfortunately, it usually takes a long time, costs a lot of nerves and often leads to exhaustion. See the 7 tips for express spring house cleaning.
Arrange your tasks. Make a list of the main places for each room that need more attention and cleaning. For example, the living room may include arranging the library, window cleaning, stacking the cabinets, etc. So there is no way you will miss any corner, and you will be more satisfied when you see that the tasks are being reduced.
Organize your time. Learn to do several things simultaneously, so the cleaning process will be going faster. For example, while making the bed or organizing the closet, leave the blankets to get some air and freshen up on the balcony. While waiting for cleaning agents to work on the stove, wash the sink.
Prepare your cleaning materials and products. Before starting the spring cleaning, make sure you have all the cleaning materials at hand, so you wouldn’t have to make emergency trips to the store. Keep everything in a basin, bucket or basket so you won’t waste time while cleaning. Prepare bigger bags to collect trash and unnecessary items.
Start from the room that needs most attention, so you won’t spread dust in the other premises. Do not clean chaotically, follow a line. For example, vacuum from corner to corner, so you won’t have to step on the cleaned parts over and over again.
Keep everything in place. Before starting with the hardest tasks like window washing, make sure that every item is in its place, so you won’t have to run from one room to another every other minute. Once the order is restored, you will be much faster finishing up with the rest of the spring cleaning chores ahead.
Use tricks for a cleaner home. For example, the microwave cleaning will take minutes if you put inside it a bowl with lemon slices and water. Set the unit for 2-3min and wait. Then just wipe with a cloth – you will see that the dirt falls easily and the inside of the microwave has a fresh citrus aroma.
Ask for a helping hand. While tidying up the bedroom, ask your children to collect their toys in their room and your husband to arrange his tools. Assign someone for dumping the garbage, washing the dishes, arranging shoe boxes. When each family member is engaged in doing chores, the spring cleaning is faster.
Don’t forget that the spring cleaning will be even easier if you have helped yourself during the previous few days by arranging the wardrobes or the library.
