Spring Cleaning Tips
Spring is finally here! The weather is getting warmer and spirits are being heightened. Now is the perfect time to freshen up your living space. Whether it is a yearly tradition you already partake in or something on your 2023 bucket list, participating in Spring Cleaning is a fantastic way to jumpstart this fresh season. Here are some things you can do to clean up this Spring:
- Try on clothes
Go through your closet and try on your clothes. Set aside any clothing items that need to be sewn, do not fit, or items that you no longer like. You can either donate or sell your old clothing that you no longer want to wear. The other clothes that need to be sewn can be fixed and added back into your outfit rotation. This will leave you with more closet space and less clutter. (This is also a great time to organize your closet. Color coding your clothing is pleasing to the eye and makes it easy to find a specific article. You can also use this time to iron or steam your clothes.)
- Organizational bins
Bookshelves, bins, and baskets are great items to invest in this Spring. Having a designated spot to put loose ends helps keep your room tidy. As an added bonus, you be less likely to lose something. (Now is a good time to sort your bookshelves. If you have CDs, DVDs, or books, you can organize them in a way that makes it easier for you to find what you are looking for.)
You can either use a label maker, or make your own by hand with some paper, tape, and a marker. Label any bins you have. This will facilitate the process of looking for something specific down the road. (Personally, I like DYMO hand label makers.)
- Clean glass
Mirrors and windows are easy to ignore in day to day life. Set aside time to clean them this Spring. It doesn’t take long, but it makes your living space feel more polished.
- Dust everything
Furniture, consoles— dust is everywhere. If you have a ceiling fan, be sure to clean it this Spring. I am always shocked to find how much dust collects out of plain sight. This is also a great time to get some canned air and clean your computer keyboard and any other nooks and crannies.
- Change up layout
Change your room around. Simply rearranging your furniture and decorations gives you a refreshing change of scenery. This is also a great time to add some greenery. Live plants are always great to have around, but you can also opt for fake plants that do not require any upkeep.
