It’s officially spring, and you know what that means…spring cleaning! It can be hard to get in the mood to do some spring cleaning, so try and pick a day that it’s raining or too cool to head out, that way you have no real excuse to avoid this seasonal chore. Here are a few apartment spring cleaning tips to help you out.
Flip Your Mattress – When you flip your mattress, you actually extend its life by sleeping in different parts of the surface (your back will thank you). Plus when you flip your mattress, you can also clean under your bed; eliminating dust bunnies and free up space for storing winter items!
Put Winter Clothes in Storage – As part of spring cleaning, you should consider storing your winter clothes away to make room for all of your spring and summer outfits. If you have room under your bed, you can buy containers that fit perfectly to store your clothing. This is also a great time to get rid of any items you didn’t wear all winter.
Dust (Especially Your Blinds) – The most important chore you should take on for spring cleaning is dusting! During the winter, dust collects everywhere. Make sure to dust behind and on top of appliances, as well as your blinds. This will reduce the amount of allergens in the air and improve the air quality of your apartment.
Clean Inside the Fridge – Take the time in the spring to clean the inside and get rid of old food that you don’t need.
Spring cleaning can be daunting, but it’s not too bad if you take your time to complete everything. Split up the chores into different days or weekends and enjoy the spring weather!
