When Spring comes into the picture, flowers are blooming and birds are chirping with the weather so sunny and breezy. This also means you have to do some Spring Cleaning to prepare your house for the bright, new season! We can help ease the chaos of it all with our 5 easy Spring cleaning tips!

TIP #1

Usually, when people think of Spring cleaning, they start with their closets. Out with the heavy, Winter clothes and in with the light, Spring clothes! Sometimes, women may get stuck in a rut when it comes to organizing their accessories. For women, don’t push off on buying something like a personalized jewelry box to have an easy place to store earrings, necklaces, and rings.

TIP #2

Men may have the same problem and want to organize things like their watches and sunglasses. Investing in a sleek, personalized watch and sunglasses box will be helpful. To have a place for miscellaneous items like keys and spare coins, place our stylishly personalized leatherette snap tray on your dresser. This way, even the smallest items in your room have a home!

TIP #3

It can be a hassle to clean up any fragile items like wine glasses and silverware. But did you know that simple home items can make them shine like new? Here are some simple cleaning “recipes” to give them a sparkle:

For glassware, here’s a recipe from Molly Maid:

  1. Warm the vinegar and place the wine glasses in the vinegar for one hour.
  2. Use the nylon net or plastic scrubber to remove the film.
  3. Thoroughly rinse wine glasses in hot water.
  4. Dry your wine glasses with a flour sack towel or other lint-free towel.

As for silverware, believe it or not, using a cloth and toothpaste can clean them up in no time! Simply polish them with some toothpaste and rinse off with warm water! If there are more persistent stains in your silverware, use a soft-bristled toothbrush to gently scrub some toothpaste into the spot!

TIP #4

In order to detoxify and cleanse your home’s multiple surfaces, keep the harsh chemicals away and use this easy formula that uses lemons!:

  • 3 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon of dish soap
  • Water
  • Regular spray bottle

Put the lemon juice and dish soap in the spray bottle. Fill the bottle to how much you desire with water. Spray on kitchen, bathroom, and house surfaces to cleanse and detoxify your home safely. Wipe away with a dampened cloth.

This will soothe any mother’s worries about harmful cleaning chemicals being used near the kids. This recipe will not only clean your home to welcome in the Spring, but it’ll also leave a joyful scent in every room!

TIP #5

If you have kids or you simply have board games lying around for game night, create a simple system to organize them so you won’t get a headache looking at a mess of cards and play pieces! A great way to have everything in order is through a cubby system. Stack all the puzzles and board games that are in boxes and have your child’s toys in plastic boxes that can sit in each cubby. As for loose play cards, organize and tuck them into index card containers and file and label them into the same boxes in the cubbies.

            When it comes to Spring cleaning, it’s all about being thorough throughout your house to welcome in the new season with a fresh start. With our 5 spring cleaning tips, you’ll be doing your Spring cleaning by working smarter and not harder!
