Let’s be real, nothing beats that feeling of accomplishment when you get a head. It may feel like an overwhelming task… but we’re here to help and have broken it down into digestible chunks for you.
1. Break it down into 10min chunks
Spring cleaning is a marathon, not a sprint. Breaking down your tasks into short highly productive chunks of time will make the whole process a lot easier. For example, dusting, cleaning doors, or wiping down skirting boards with a microfibre cloth.
2. Give your bin a glow up
Cooked fish for dinner? We all know the bin in our kitchen can give off a not so pleasant smell at times. Grab yourself some dryer sheets (even used ones will work) and place them in the bottom of your bin. They’ll absorb spills and help mask bad odours.
3. Use baking soda to give your mugs a new lease of life
Fun fact.. did you know the Statue of Liberty was cleaned with baking soda on its centennial? If it’s not broke… don’t fix it. Fill your mugs or cups with one part baking soda and two parts water, leave them over night and rinse well the next morning et voila, they’ll be brand new.
4. Give your Microwave the Once Over
We all use them almost everyday, but sometimes we can forget to give them a good clean. Tackling built-up food and grease normally calls for bucket loads of elbow grease, but our helpful hint will put a stop to that. Using a combination of vinegar and water, you can create a solution that will help you tackle those stubborn stains. Heat a measuring jug with a fifty-fifty solution for ten minutes in your microwave, until it steams up. Remove the jug and then use a cloth to wipe away the moisture and dirt.
5. Breath some life back into your Bedsheets
We all have that one favourite bedding set, that we return to time and time again. We all know over time that colours can fade. So, rather than throw them away, soak them in bicarbonate of soda and white vinegar as this can help you breathe life back into your bed sheets and get rid of any lingering odours.
