Five Tips For An Easy Spring Cleaning
The tradition of spring cleaning not only promotes wellness by keeping your environment clean and organized, but it also helps carry the fresh-start feeling brought on by a new year well into summer. The experts at A Woman’s Touch Housecleaning know that nothing feels quite as satisfying as coming home to a clean house. At the same time, we understand the concerns and challenges you may face with a massive clean up. To make this year’s spring cleaning your most productive yet, here are our five tips for an easy spring cleaning. These tips are designed to help you get the job done efficiently and effectively.
Tip #1: Don’t use regular window cleaners
In addition to harsh ingredients like ammonia, most window cleaning solutions are packed with chemical compounds that can irritate or even burn your skin. Instead of a chemical window cleaner, use a squeegee with a mixture of vinegar and water to clean windows. Make sure to get into the corners and creases. Lastly, wipe away the solution with a clean, dry towel.
Tip #2: Make a schedule
Regardless of where you start, remember to have a schedule or plan so you can clean in order. Start from the top and then proceed downwards. This keeps everything you’ve already cleaned from getting dirty again. Moreover, having a plan helps you focus on the task at hand. You can also plan your clean up based on the areas that need the most work or the ones you skip or neglect during your routine cleaning. These are good areas to start with.
Tip #3: De-clutter
De-cluttering makes you more efficient and keeps you organized. On the other hand, a disorganized home will only add to your stress levels. Therefore, it is important for you to de-clutter if you want a healthy lifestyle without any psychological stress. To ensure de-cluttering doesn’t take too long, set a time limit for each area and start with the one you want to tackle first.
Tip #4: Think green
The cleaning aisles of stores are stocked full of commercial cleaning products, but the variety can be overwhelming. This is why we recommend you use environmentally friendly products. Also, tossing the toxins is the first step to creating a cleaner, healthier, and safer home. Avoid air fresheners and use products that do not contain (or have reduced amounts of) VOCs, fragrances, irritants, and flammable ingredients.
Tip #5: Don’t use harsh chemicals to clean your oven
Instead of using harsh chemicals, clean your oven naturally with baking soda and vinegar, or you can also use salt as a quick fix. Steam clean your oven with vinegar, use water and lemons too. You can use a toothbrush to get every little nook and cranny and make your work easy by cleaning your oven racks in the laundry sink. Keep in mind to always start by vacuuming out your oven.
