It's just less than a week more to Chinese New Year 2020! If you haven't done your spring cleaning, it's high time you started.
Spring cleaning doesn't need to be excessively time consuming and energy sucking. Do it right and you should be done in a few hours!
Here are 5 cleaning tips to help you achieve a more productive spring clean in a shorter amount of time.
1. DECLUTTER & ORGANISE
Now that it’s spring, it’s the time to put in more commitment into organising the clutter in your house.
Start by throwing away unwanted items. Then, separate the items you want to keep into different categories, before allocating space for these categories & putting them away.
Doing this step systematically makes the process smoother & faster! Plus, your home will look much neater & become easier to clean with the clutter out of the way.
A must-do first step for every spring cleaning!
2. FOCUS ON CLEANING CHORE BY CHORE
One of the most inefficient ways to spring clean is to clean one room after the other.
If you’ve to dust, vacuum, & mop room after room, you’ll soon feel like you’re in a dreadful never-ending cleaning cycle, repeating the same task over & over again.
Instead, focus on cleaning chore by chore. Declutter the entire house first, before dusting, vacuuming & then mopping the whole house with each chore.
That way, you’ll feel more motivated & accomplished, as with each tick of the cleaning checklist, you'd have completed a much more significant portion of your spring cleaning!
3. GET THE RIGHT TOOLS FOR THE JOB
While there are many types of cleaning tools available in the market, it’s important to purchase those that can help you clean more with little effort.
Getting tools that have such features that would not only save your back-breaking effort, but will help you accomplish more in less time.
For example, on top of having to lug a heavy bucket of detergent-filled water, a traditional mop & bucket set requires you to dip & wring out the mop head into detergent water regularly.
Getting the right tools for the job will save you a lot time spring cleaning while achieving the same result!
4. MAKE SPRING CLEANING A FAMILY ACTIVITY
Spring cleaning should not be a one-person effort. Everyone in the family should do their part to make the house sparkly clean!
Allocate each member of the family to a specific role, be it cleaning their own room or taking charge of a specific task.
Not only does it share the back-breaking workload of spring cleaning, it is a great way to bond as a family too!
Nothing bonds the family better than accomplishing a spring cleaning feat together. Everyone gets to live in a cleaner & fresher home!
5. DON'T NEGLECT THE SEASONAL CHORES
Some chores just can’t be done on a regular basis, given how packed our schedules are and how much effort these chores require.
These seasonal chores includes (but are not limited to) wiping down your windows, scrubbing your toilets, and cleaning the area under your furniture.
And while we neglect these chores for most of the year, these areas are slowly collecting dust, dirt and grout.
Getting these chores done during spring cleaning will clean off so much of those, your house will feel revived with new life once it's done!
