Spring Cleaning Tips

With the cherry blossoms beginning to bloom and warmer weather upon us, March is the perfect time to start cleaning your home for spring. Spring cleaning is more than just a way to tidy up your space. It’s an opportunity to create a home that mirrors spring’s vibrant colors and vitality. And nothing feels more satisfying than a freshly cleaned home. Keep reading for tips on incorporating spring’s freshness and warmth into your home.

Organization and Declutter

Decluttering and organizing the existing items in your home is a great place to start your spring cleaning journey. Clear out clothes that no longer serve a purpose in your closet. Get rid of unused items in your cabinets and expired food in your fridge. Clean out old papers from your desk, among other tasks. Additionally, investing in storage solutions is a great way to maintain a clutter-free home. Cleaning out these unnecessary belongings and finding an appropriate home for your other items can help create a calming environment. See my article for more tips to organizing your home.

Refreshing for Spring

In addition to spring cleaning, refreshing your space for spring by adding pops of color and greenery into your home is important. Refresh your decor by swapping out winter-themed decor with more springtime pillows, blankets, decorative items, and other accessories. Also, consider switching other items in your home for lighter springtime solutions, such as replacing heavier winter drapes with brighter and airier ones. Create a pastel color palette throughout your home with soft hues and florals that emulate the warmth and brightness of spring. Adding fresh flowers and potted plants can also increase the verdant effect. See my article for more ideas on how to rejuvenate your home for spring.

Liven your Space with Spring Scents

Another way to infuse spring into your home is to choose cleansing products with refreshing and floral scents that leave your home smelling like spring. Products with lavender, citrus, and other fresh scents will help your space feel cleaner and ready for spring. Swapping your winter candles with springtime scents will also contribute to this effect. Washing your bedding will also make your bedrooms more comfortable and smell like spring if you’re using aromatic detergent.

Spring Cleaning: Cleaning Green

Opting for more sustainable options during your spring cleaning can be better for the environment and just as effective in your home. Looking for packaging that cuts down on plastic waste, such as concentrates, paper packaging, and reusable cleaning cloths are all great ways to help our planet. Furthermore, everyday household products such as baking soda, lemons, and even white vinegar work just as well as chemical cleaners. See my article for more information about creating a healthy home.

Spring Cleaning Room by Room

A way to tackle your spring cleaning without feeling overwhelmed is to space out the different tasks on your spring cleaning checklist. First, go room by room throughout your house and see what needs to be done in each room to avoid that overwhelming dread. Next, think about what tasks need to be done the most and start in that room. Lastly, ask questions like: does your fridge need a deep clean? Is your basement a cluttered mess? Is your shower in need of some TLC? Are your ceiling fans covered in dust?

I hope these tips have inspired you to create a living space that radiates the vibrancy of spring, whether through floral patterns or fresh spring candles. If you are looking for more home decor and style advice, visit my articles page.
