People have been doing spring cleaning for a very long time. Over 7,000 years, to be exact. When the spring is here, most of us start feeling to need to clean and throw out things. If you live in the north, spring cleaning is a must. We insulate our houses during the winter to prevent heat loss and to save energy. Most windows haven’t been opened since last fall. Now it’s time to open all your windows and clean them inside and outside.
If you haven’t started your spring cleaning, now it’s time. Make a plan and stick to it. Start with opening all windows first and work your way up. Spring cleaning is not a one day project, you need to reserve a few weekends to do a thorough cleaning. First clean the inside of your windows and doors and any glass surface. Don’t forget the mirrors. Then pick a nice weather day to clean the outside windows.
Once you’re done with that, clean the living room and kitchen. Shampoo the rugs and wipe clean the furniture. Throw out outdated cans and boxes in the kitchen and clean up your pantry. Don’t forget the range and refrigerator.
