Spring Cleaning 101
Image: Tunatura / Adobestock

Start From the Top: Start with your tallest shelf and work your way down until everything in the room has been dusted, washed, or wiped. This is the most effective way to clean because any excess dust or grime you donít get on the first round will be waiting for you on lower surfaces. Always start your cleaning routine with a thorough dusting and end by sweeping, mopping or vacuuming your floors.

What Lies Beneath: Be prepared to move everything you own. Itís amazing how much dirt, dust, and dander can accumulate under your couch, behind a hutch, or even underneath that pretty flower vase. Just because you canít see the dust doesnít mean itís not there. Make sure to leave no chair, bookshelf, or throw pillow unturned.

Kill the Clutter: Nothing looks messier than too much clutter. If you truly want to clean house this spring, itís time to get organized. Take a room inventory of anything you donít love or doesnít work and sort everything into throw-away or donation piles. This spring, choose to simplify your life by simplifying your home. Remember, simple is always in style.

Closets Count: If youíve followed the first three tips, youíve gotten rid of your decades-old magazine collection, vacuumed the sofa, and now your living room, kitchen and bathroom are spotless. But what about your closets? Just because theyíre used for storage doesnít mean they donít deserve a good cleaning. Sort through the clutter, donating old shirts you havenít worn in years, and clean your closets from top to bottom, leaving no boot or box of mittens unturned.

Clean Green: You can effectively clean with a few safe and simple ingredients. Baking soda is one great all-purpose, non-toxic cleaner. It not only cleans, but also deodorizes, removes stains, and works as a good fabric softener. Cornstarch and lemon juice will clean any greasy surface. Lemon juice also works as an alternative to bleach. Salt is a strong abrasive cleaner and toothpaste is a mild one. Vinegar is a great all-purpose cleaner that cuts grease, removes stains, and when mixed with water, will leave your glass surfaces streak-free and sparkling.
