It Is That Time of The Year Again, Spring Cleaning!

As the weather starts to make the change of getting warmer, it is time we make our change and take care of what we may have been putting off during that long, cold winter. When it comes to spring cleaning, it can get overwhelming, but we've compiled a handy dandy list of things to think about when you are wanting to freshen your home up and make it look good as new. 

1. Clean Your Refrigerator

Yes, clean your fridge! It's a very common item in your house that gets dirty, but we don't typically take the time to clean it due to busy schedules, but it's super important to take care of! Soy sauce spills from Chinese takeout, vegetables get left in there without being thrown away sometimes, and other things get overlooked as well. When was the last time you checked the expiration date on some of the sauces in the refrigerator door? Go through your fridge and check expiration dates, get rid of things you know you won't eat, toss out those items that you no longer need--then take everything out and do a deep clean of your refrigerator! 

2. Organize Your Kitchen Pantry

Sometimes when we are looking through our pantry trying to pack lunch for the day or prepare for making dinner that evening, we tend to pull things out and then put them back in without thinking twice about it. Eventually, everything gets out of place and some items in your pantry are no longer as good as they once were. 

3. Tend to Things You Don't Get To Often

There are just some things we don't think about! This is just a starter list for cleaning out different spots in your house--you can get down and dirty with making sure you get to all the nooks and crannies of your home.  

  • Washing windows
  • Dusting surfaces
  • Deep cleaning your mattress (yes, this is an item that needs cleaning too)
  • Dust the ceiling fans 
  • Wash out trash cans 
  • Set your oven to self-clean to clean out the grease stains
  • Clean light fixtures
  • Clean your dishwasher (yes, your dishwasher

4. Consider Eco-Friendly Products

There are tons of options out there when it comes to cleaning your home. Something you could consider this year is using an eco-oriented state of mind! Some great eco-friendly brands that we have used are 7th-generation and Method.

5. Go Through Your Closet

Check the clothes that you no longer wear or the items that you simply no longer have any more use for. Consider donating to your local homeless shelter or to an organization that could use gently used clothes. 

6. Think about Hiring a Professional Carpet Cleaner or Even a House Cleaner

Consider hiring a professional to add some extra freshness to your carpet! There's nothing like the look or feel of clean carpet to make you feel like your home is brand new again. Or maybe you want someone else to take on the hassle of cleaning your home for spring! It's always a consideration--and never a bad one--to invest in a professional to take care of the cleaning for you, whether it's for your carpets or a full deep clean of your home.
