Spring cleaning guide

It’s not too late for spring cleaning, and it may be nice to have a little help.  Try getting the whole family involved this year to make it easier–and maybe even fun! Here are three simple thoughts to make cleaning a little more enjoyable this year.

Share the work load – The first step to cleaning is to plan out the work.  If you have several members in your family, give everyone a fair amount of tasks.  Some people have areas in the home that they enjoy cleaning.  Divvy up the work this way, and cleaning will be a lot less painful.  Create a simple checklist that will allow everyone to mark their completed tasks, and then celebrate each success.

Use the right tools – There is nothing more frustrating than trying to complete a task without the proper tools.  Proper cleaning requires a good vacuum, broom, reusable towels, and a few simple  household cleaners.  Believe it or not, you do not need a closet full of harsh chemicals to get the job done.  Try using simple ingredients like water, baking soda, and vinegar instead.

Don’t waste time – Thorough cleaning doesn’t have to take a lot of time if you keep a fairly tidy house.  Most rooms can be cleaned in 15 minutes or less.  Setting a time frame helps to make the process efficient and manageable.  If you find that the task is taking too long, it may be worth stepping up your daily/weekly routine to make sure the problem area ceases to be a problem.
