With snow still on the ground some may think it’s too early to talk about spring cleaning. The months of March and April will be here soon and so will spring, and with spring comes bright budding flowers, longer days, warmer weather, and spring cleaning. There is no better way to shake off the dreariness of winter than a freshly cleaned home ready to welcome the season. Here are 10 easy ways you can clean your home for spring.
1. Open the Windows
There’s nothing like the sun shining through your windows to usher in the feeling of spring. Throw back the curtains, part the blinds, and open up the windows to let the fresh spring air waft through your Boston Beacon Hill condo.
2. Organize Your Closets
If you are running out of closet space in your downtown Boston condo, you can put away many of your bulky winter clothes to leave room for your spring wardrobe. You can even take a few extra minutes to sort out any clothes you no longer wear to donate, giving you even more room for the upcoming season.
3. Use Detergent as an All-Purpose Cleaner
A little bit of laundry detergent can go a long way. Warm water, laundry detergent, and items that you may have around the house can help you clean:
- stove tops
- and more!
4. Brighten Rooms with Simple Changes
A simple change of pillows on a sofa or comforters on a bed can make a world of difference to your Boston Midtown condo. You can rotate these household items seasonally, keeping your décor fresh and rooms feeling like new with very little effort.
5. Reorganize Living Areas
Again, small changes can make a big difference in the look and feel of your Charles River Park home, and rearranging the furniture in main living areas can leave your home feeling fresh and ready for spring.
6. Clean Light Switches and Fixtures
Take a few minutes to wipe fingerprints off light switches, dust your lamps, tighten the screws on any loose door hinges, and replace any incandescent light bulbs with brighter and more energy-efficient bulbs.
7. Clean Kitchen Appliances
Give your microwave and fridge a fresh look by cleaning any old food remnants from inside the appliances. An easy way to clean the microwave is by heating a bowl of water — the steam loosens the residue for easy clean-up.
8. Buy Indoor Plants
A few indoor flowers and plants can bring the fresh blooms of spring into Beacon Hill home, brightening living rooms, kitchens, or windowsills with ease.
9. Check Your Cabinets
Look in your kitchen and bathroom cabinets to see if anything has expired, is almost empty, or needs to be thrown away. This is a simple way to declutter your Charles River Park condominium key features without spending a lot of time cleaning.
10. Put Out a New Welcome Mat
What better way to welcome spring than with a new welcome mat outside your front door of your Boston Midtown high rise condo? This fresh feature not only adds another focal point to your entryway, it makes an excellent first impression for visitors.
