Spring ‘S Super Seven

Spring is only a week away. The weather may not agree, but before we know it, the temperatures will start rising and flowers will begin to peek from beneath the ground. This is also a great time of year to open up the windows and start letting in the fresh air. And as we do that, it’s also time to do a little deep cleaning and decluttering.

As if you don’t already have a few items on your list, here are some ideas of what to do to start the clean-up.  I call them my Super Seven Spring Cleaning Tips.

    1. Wash the windows inside and out.
    2. Wipe down walls and baseboards.
    3. Steam clean the carpet.
    4. Remove the cobwebs from the corners of your ceiling.
    5. Power wash the exterior of your home.
    6. Dust/wipe down the blades on your ceiling fans.
    7. Clean out the garage.

Taking on a deep cleaning can be a bit of a daunting task, but doing it in small bits will make it more manageable. Also, don’t do it alone. Make each project a family event with a fun reward upon completion. Not only will you have a clean home, but you’ll have spent quality family time together as a result.

So, go ahead, and make it a Super Spring.  After the winter we’ve had, you deserve it.
