It's Time to Think About Spring Cleaning

After a long winter that never seemed to end, the daffodils are finally blooming, the sun is shining, and we actually managed to get some washing dry on the line this week! It can only mean that spring is right around the corner, so now is a great time to start thinking about throwing the windows open, getting rid of the winter cobwebs, and giving your home a deep clean in preparation for the warmer months. 

If you are thinking about setting aside some time to get your home in order this weekend, here are our top tips to get you on your way.


Create a checklist for each room

Create a simple checklist for each room to make sure you cover all of your bases. Start at the top of each room and work down to create a structured plan of attack. Keep this for next year, adding the time each job took, to allow you to hone your spring clean schedule year on year.



Stark minimalism isn't everyone’s bag and doesn't really scream of a cosy lived-in home, however, this is the time to get rid of, or store away, items that haven't been used much, if at all, for months. Rule of thumb tends to be: if it hasn't been used since this time last year, it can probably go in the loft, under the stairs or to the local charity shop.


Floors and walls

The largest visual spaces in your home are the floors, ceilings and walls. Ceilings can be brushed and vacuumed, and walls come up well with the same process plus a light wash over with warm water and a little dish soap. Carpets and rugs should be cleaned with carpet cleaning equipment to bring up a winter’s worth of dirt and grime. 


Fully utilise the dishwasher

You will be amazed at what you can use your dishwasher for. Combs & hairbrushes, plastic toys, pet food/water bowls, trainers and even golf balls can be cleaned to a sparkling standard whilst leaving you free to tick a few more items off of your list as it cycles through.
