Spring Is Here, And So Is Spring Cleaning
Apartment Therapy

Spring has arrived! Now finally we can forget about those long cold months and focus on the positive. It is a beautiful thing when the flowers start blossoming and the air becomes lighter and warmer. It reminds us winter will not last forever and warmer weather awaits. However, it is also a reminder that with the warmer weather comes our favorite thing to do-clean. Spring cleaning is in the air. It is the season of organizing, cleaning, and straightening-up all around.

What you should be cleaning for spring cleaning.

Your bedding.

This one is major in order to get ready for the warmer weather. We often clean our sheets, maybe not enough, but we do. However, we neglect sometimes to clean our bed spread ever so often. According to Good Housekeeping, we should be washing our comforter 2-3 times a year. So, needless to say the seasonal change is a good reminder to wash your comforter.

Your wardrobe.

Now, the key here is not washing, but rather organizing. Looking through your clothes will help you see clearly what fits and allow you to give away the clothes that no longer work. Organizing will also open your eyes to the new clothing there is to buy.

Your refrigerator.

Time to start fresh with food as well. According to the wall street journal, Americans clean out their fridges once or twice a year. Like many other things, we neglect to clean out our fridges as much as we need to. Spring cleaning is a helpful reminder to start not only cleaning, but also organizing our fridges.

Your car.

The warm weather is always a good motivator to wash your car brand new.

Your dust piles.

It doesn't matter the amount of vacuuming or dusting dust appears in the air all around us and will always collect on everything and anything. So, to start the new season and to help those who suffer the season with pollen and dust allergies, it is a good idea to wipe everything down to kick off the fresh air

*Plants are also a great idea to clean the air if dust is a major issue.*

And everyone forgets about those old body care products...

Looking through your lotions, body care items, and even make-up is not a bad idea. It is something we usually tend to forget, but something that we should all be doing. Expired make-up and body care products can cause rashes and break outs. Clearing them out now will help spring sand summer run a little bit smoother!

Hopefully these tips will help spring feel fresh and inviting.
