Spring Cleaning in Eight Easy Steps!

The green growth of spring brings on feelings of renewal, which makes it the perfect time to clean out all that winter clutter. Spring cleaning can sometimes feel daunting, but it doesn’t have to be! Here are eight easy ways to get your spring cleaning done in no time!


1. Let In The Light

After a long winter, it can be very refreshing to open the blinds and let in the light. Better yet, open your windows and bring in the fresh breeze to freshen up your home. Washing your windows from the winter buildup is a great first step to brighten up your home.


2.  Skim Off the Junk

Go through your home and get rid of the items you don’t use or need anymore. An easy way to do this is move from room to room, taking away five things that aren’t relevant anymore. Your home will seem much more organized and lighter than before.


3. No Need to Deep Clean

You may think that spring cleaning requires a deep clean, but a surface cleaning will do wonders after the long winter. Vacuuming, dusting, polishing, as well as a quick neatening will refresh your home in no time. Doing one or two spring cleaning task every day (dusting the ceiling fan, for instance), will help you stay motivated instead of doing it all at once.


4. Pack Your Winter Gear Away 

Now that winter is near over (knock on wood!), we can begin to pack away all those heavy coats, sweaters, and boots! Be sure to wash all your winter clothing before it goes into plastic bins.


5. Break Out Your Spring Items

Bringing out your spring clothing, décor, and supplies will get you excited for the new season and liven up your home. This might be the right time to replace your bed and bath linens, as those can be overlooked and get grimy fairly quickly.


6. Organize Your Paperwork

Since it’s also tax season, this is a great time to organize your files and paperwork. Go through and archive everything you don’t need to reference, and toss any old papers that are of no use anymore. Creating an organized space


7. Clean Large Appliances

It’s definitely important to give your large appliances a good clean to keep them in good working order. After dusting the top and behind each appliance, give it a good wipe down. Be sure to wear gloves, as many cleaners used in these appliances can be quite harsh. When you’re done, head out to one of Edmonton’s amazing farmer’s market and bring home some great fresh produce!


8. Take It Easy

You’ve worked hard at refreshing your home, now it’s time to enjoy it!
