Spring cleaning tips


Create a plan

Before you start diving into your spring cleaning project, create a plan and prioritize those areas that have been ignored and need extra attention.


Getting rid of clutter is one of the most important aspects of spring cleaning. Decluttering your home with the KonMari Method.(Tidy up with Marie Kondo Netflix series) and choose between what to keep and what to discard by asking yourself: does it spark joy? While letting go of items that do not spark joy, Maria Kondo suggests doing so with gratitude by “thanking†these items for their services and sorting them into four categories: trash, donate, keep and sell. Move the clutter out of your home as soon as possible to avoid creating new clutter (whether bringing your donation box to a charity or planning a garage sale)

Clean one room at time

Thinking about all the rooms you have to deep clean can feel overwhelming. The most efficient way to deep clean is to deep clean one room at a time.

Establish new habits

Use the opportunity of spring cleaning to develop long-term cleaning patterns that will make the next spring cleaning much easier. Spend 10 to 15 minutes a day on one task of your spring cleaning list, and then slowly develop habits of cleaning up. This will make your next spring cleaning less of a chore.
