Spring Cleaning Your Home Guide

Cleaning Your Home

1. Declutter with Purpose

Start your spring cleaning journey by decluttering your living spaces! First create a list of things you want to get done around the house. Writing down a list of "to do's" helps hold you and your family members accountable. Assign a deadline that you'd like to complete each task by. For example, you could establish a goal of cleaning out the fridge, tossing any expired food, and wiping down the shelves and drawers by Friday. Creating an organized list makes the execution process easier. It feels good to cross another task off your list!

Take a systematic approach, starting from one room and moving onto the next. Always keep in mind reducing, reusing, and recycling. Reduce the amount of clutter within your environment by donate or discarding items you no longer need or use. A good decluttering of your clothes and home items will have you feeling refreshed and ready to take on the next season!

2. Deep Clean

It's easy to wipe down the countertops, spot clean, and vacuum daily. But there's nothing like a good deep cleaning of your house that leaves your space and mindset refreshed. Dust off those hard-to-reach areas, move furniture and vacuum underneath, and wipe down every nook and cranny. It's important to pay attention to neglected areas like baseboards, in between tiles, ceiling fans, and window sills.

3. Decor Refresh

If you're reading this and still have your holiday decor up, maybe even a tree, just know you're not alone. Take this opportunity of spring cleaning to completely switch out your seasonal decor! Wrap up your holiday cheer and save it for later this year. Swap out winter textiles for lighter decor, and maybe even consider introducing pops of color such as pastels or springy tones. Play into the seasonal colors with fun throw pillows, or even pick up a bouquet of fresh flowers the next time you're at the grocery store. Spring is such a fun season to accessorize with dainty elements and fun tones.

Hot tip! Find a bouquet intertwined with spring flowers such as tulips, peonies, lilacs, or hydrangeas for a beautiful spring assortment.
