In this five-part series, we’ll take you through the steps to deep clean every room in your home!
Sort through items and get rid of anything you no longer need or use. If you’re really wanting to keep something, ask yourself: 1. Does it fit? 2. Is it flattering on me? 3. Have I used it in the past year? If you answer “no” to any of the above, strongly consider donating or selling it.
*Tip: Turn around all of the hangers so that they are hanging backward, and throughout the year, only turn each one back the right way if you’ve worn the item. If something is still hanging backward during next year’s spring cleaning, you’ll know which items to get rid of first.
Vacuum carpet and ceilings. Remove any items from the floor and vacuum up any dust that might have built up under your shoe rack or nostalgia box. Don’t forget to get into the corners of the ceiling to capture any cobwebs.
Wipe down shelves and inside drawers. Remove all items and wipe down the space with a damp cloth. As you replace the items, think about how they can be organised so that you’re more likely to keep the space tidy.
*Tip: Use drawer dividers or fabric bins to organise small items like hand towels or underwear.
