Spring Cleaning Tips for a Spic-and-Span Space

Posted on April 5, 2021 by Warren Duffie

Now that spring has sprung, it’s time to start enjoying warmer temperatures, longer days, and the rewarding feeling that comes along with a spic-and-span apartment. Before you pull on those rubber gloves and break out the spray bottles, check out these tips to help you streamline your spring-cleaning checklist.

Overhaul your cleaning supplies. There’s nothing worse than starting a cleaning project only to realize you don’t have the necessary supplies. Take stock of your cleaning inventory to ensure that you have everything you need to complete the tasks at hand, including bleach, sponges, rags, paper towels, and all-purpose cleaners. Now is also a good time to toss out any expired products.

Start small. Don’t overwhelm yourself by attempting to complete your entire spring-cleaning checklist in a single day or weekend. Instead, break the job down into smaller, more manageable tasks. For example, you could clean one room at a time, or focus on single chores such as decluttering, dusting, and disinfecting.

Enlist your friends and family. Spring cleaning should be a group effort! Split up the tasks so that they’re distributed evenly between you, your family, and/or your roommates. If you need extra reinforcements, see if your friends can help pitch in! Pay them with some takeout pizza and drinks.
