Top Tips for a Better Spring Clean
Spring cleaning is a tradition that dates back centuries, and its exact origins are unclear. However, it is believed to have originated in ancient cultures such as the Persian, Jewish, and Chinese, where it was customary to thoroughly clean and declutter homes in preparation for the New Year.
In more recent history, homes used to get a thorough clean in spring as a way to clean away the mess from winter, from when homes used to be heated by coal and wood fires, and doors and windows were kept closed to keep the warmth in.
Whilst times have changed and homes are heated differently, many of us often use the start of spring to have a good deep clean of our homes.
If the thought of starting a full spring clean fills you with dread, we have put together some useful tips to make the most of your spring clean.
Make a Plan
Start by making a checklist of the areas you want to clean and prioritize them based on how much work they require. Planning the order in which you will tackle each area of your home will help you stay organized and focused throughout the process.
Don't Forget the Tools
