Step Into Spring Cleaning Part III

We’ve conquered the public parts of your homes, now its time to spring clean your private spaces – ahem! Bedrooms and bathrooms require special attention. Some of the same rules apply:

1. Furniture needs to be moved to thoroughly clean the whole space.

2. Dusting is essential for a good spring clean!

Bedrooms

Start with linens – wash all sheets, comforters, duvets, pillows, mattress covers and bed skirts.

Rotate the mattress!

De-clutter flat surfaces including side tables, desks and dressers (move them and get in there!).

Invest!!

Edit your closet! If it doesn’t fit, you don’t love it and it’s not used – it’s time to let it go.

While going through the closet, clean the shelves and cabinets before putting clothing back. Use cedar oil in wooden cabinets to repel moths.

This is an excellent opportunity to organize the closet into sections (i.e. pants, blazer, skirts, shirts etc…), hang all of the hangers and clothing in the same direction and get an overall fresh look to a space that is so often frequented.

Bathrooms

Deeply clean the bathroom the green way!

Wash the walls to get rid of buildup from hair products, moisture etc…

De-clutter the medicine cabinet!

Spend some time looking at the products housed in the bathroom. Check expiry dates and ask yourself if you’re really using them or just saving them for a later date (a date that, in our opinion, never comes).

Clean the bathroom fan. These fans are often integrated into the ceiling so they may require dismantling.

Not a fan of manual dustingA good vacuum is your best friend!

Sparkle, sparkle!
