I'm planning a wedding
Doing Spring Cleaning
Those 3 things take up all my time.
Let's talk about Spring Cleaning because this year it took me longer than it usually does...I have no idea how I was able to accumulate so much useless junk during winter.
I know Spring Cleaning can be a hassle and annoying and just hard to do, I mean..where do you start, what do you keep and what should you toss?
Hopefully these Tips I'm about to share with you help you with your Spring Time Cleaning
1 Work from the top down, inside to outside, to avoid getting what you just cleaned dirty again.
2 Do one room, even one area of one room, at a time to avoid unfinished jobs. The satisfaction of seeing one room sparkle will make the hard work feel like it's worth the effort.
3 When tidying, reduce trips around the house by temporarily depositing items in one spot en route to but not at their final destination
4 Do two things at once. While laundry is going, scrub the shower stall.
5 Make small repairs. If you're not handy, hire someone.
6 Invest in good rubber or vinyl gloves to protect your skin and nails.
7 Dust before vacuuming or cleaning the floor. Try feather or lambs wool dusters, especially extendable ones for reaching above window and door casings and into corners. Household rags are invaluable for jobs requiring a damp cloth – natural fibres work best.
8 Buy mops with a squeeze mechanism (great for vinyl, linoleum or ceramic tile floors) and a decent-size heavy-duty pail – one with a measuring scale helps get soap-to-water ratios correct.
9 Don't stand your brooms on their bristles. It will destroy their shape and diminish their effectiveness. Instead, get a broom holder, like the Magic Holder 5-position broom organizer.
10 Use a Swiffer for light dusting, or your favourite broom or vacuum attachment to clean hardwood floors. Then damp-mop with a mild cleaner such as Murphy Oil Soap. I recently discovered BonaKemi's Micro Plus Hardwood Floor Care System, which includes a mop with a removable washable micro fibre pad and a nontoxic water-based spray cleaner. It makes the floors glow, and smell good, too.
