Rejuvenate your home this month with a little spring cleaning. It’s the perfect time to tackle those cleaning, decluttering and organising jobs around the house, so you won’t have to worry about it again for a while. And whilst a quick spruce around your home will make it seem more pleasant to live in, a clean home also supports a healthier immune system as you’ll no longer be breathing in all those nasty germs.

Kitchen

Take some time to wipe down all the kitchen surfaces and cupboard doors. You want to remove all those sticky stains that have been lingering for a few weeks. For a deep clean, focus on scrubbing all your appliances including the oven, hobs, extractor fan, microwave and dishwasher. Both inside and out! Clear out the fridge, throw away any out of date food and wipe down the shelvest. Mop the floor, and if you have time, give your kitchen walls a quick lick of paint. You won’t need to touch them again until next Spring!

Living Room

As one of the cosiest rooms in the house, you want to take good care when cleaning it. Vacuuming the floors is a must, but what about the curtains too? Put the vacuum on a low suction and use the brush attachment to gently move up and down the curtain to collect the dust. Be cautious as a suction too strong might misshapen the fabric. Buy a few baskets to store small items like throws, magazines etc to keep the room looking tidy and organised. Bring in some indoor plants to purify the space and create a biophilic theme.

Bedroom

It’s time to get rid of that heavy winter bedding and swap in some lighter bedlinen. Although it can still get a little chiller towards the evening, there will be a rise in temperature in comparison to Winter, so a lightweight bedspread might be best. Just keep that throw close by in a basket next to your bed just in case! When changing your bed linen, make sure you pull your bed all the way out and vacuum right underneath. You might even need to give your headboard a quick wipe over. It might be a good idea to flip and rotate your mattress to the other side for a more supportive sleeping cushion. 

Your wardrobe and drawers are another area in your bedroom you need to tackle. Empty the drawers and wardrobe out completely and sort the contents into piles of ‘keep’, ‘bin’ or ‘recycle.’ If you’re feeling organised, you can also group your clothes by colour and category before placing them back into your wardrobe.

Bathroom

The bathroom is arguably the worst room of the house to clean, as it can easily get dirty again. But you’ve got to start somewhere and Spring is the perfect time. Empty the bathroom cabinets and throw away any expired toiletries or makeup. Organise the remaining items into groups, storing items of the same category together. Wipe down your glass shower doors and give a thorough clean to remove any grubby grout. Finally, add some candles for a dash of fragrance!
