Spring is definitely here – a time for fresh starts and bright mornings. What better way to commemorate the season than by giving your home a deep clean, right? Spring-cleaning may seem like a daunting task for the busy homeowner but there are so many things you can do to make it a quick and efficient task.
Below are some tips that can help you tackle spring-cleaning on a busy schedule. Make it a family affair and enlist family and friends to help you get the job done a lot faster!
Whether you are planning to do it over the weekend or over a course of several days, it is always best to plan ahead. Make a schedule and write down when you want to accomplish a certain task. This can help you work around with the schedule in mind, making for a more efficient use of your time and resources.
Make sure to tackle time-consuming projects first and leave the dusting and mopping for last. It is always best to start with big projects while you still have the energy for them.
- Check your supplies.
Make sure to check all the supplies you have before even beginning. Nothing wastes your time more than realizing you don’t have enough garbage bags or finding out your mop is broken.
It is also a good idea to check everything so you can make one run to the supermarket for all the other supplies you might be missing. Do not forget to include protective gears such as gloves and goggles on your list because you can never be too safe.
- Learn to multi-task
There are some tasks you can do while waiting for another to finish. For example, while letting the cleaning solution sit on your toilet, you can start organizing drawers and discarding expired products. This makes for a more efficient use of your time that would otherwise be spent waiting for the baking soda to activate.
- Make it a family affair.
10 hands are better than 2, we always say! Make spring-cleaning a family affair and ask the kids to pitch in on some cleaning tasks like organizing the pantry or cleaning out the fridge. You can save the more tedious tasks to the adults. Don’t forget to reward everyone for a job well done after!
