How to start spring cleaning now: 7 first steps

In spring, everything begins to revive and renew, and this should apply not only to nature, but also to your home. After a long winter, it's time to get rid of dirt, dust, and unnecessary things to make your space fresh, clean, and comfortable.

Spring cleaning is a kind of ritual, so it requires more effort than usual. To help you not get overwhelmed by a long to-do list and know where to start, Tomsguide has shared the first seven steps on the way to a spotless home.

Remove all the junk

Start by taking a thorough look around your home. Gather your thoughts and decide what you really need and what things are just taking up space. Throw away, donate, or give to charity anything you don't use.

Organize what's left so you know what you have and what you might need to buy.

Use baking soda

The abrasive texture of baking soda makes it ideal for removing dirt. Baking soda is a versatile and safe cleaning agent. Unlike specialty detergents and chemicals, it is non-toxic and can be used in many places.

Wash the walls

You'll need dish detergent, warm water, and a microfiber cloth to remove dust, grease, and dirt from the walls in your home.

Make sure the fabric is not too wet to avoid damaging the coating. And for paper wallpaper, it's best not to use water at all. You can apply a disinfectant to a microfiber cloth instead of dishwashing detergent and water.

Change the bedding

Changing your bedding is probably part of your regular cleaning routine. When it comes to spring cleaning, you need to do a deeper clean. You should wash any extra pillows, bedspreads, and the actual blanket and pillow you sleep with.

If you have nice weather, it doesn't hurt to air all the bedding outside or open the windows and let the fresh air circulate inside the house.

Buy lemons

If you are impressed by the versatile properties of baking soda, then try using lemons in your home. Even though lemons are acidic, they are not as aggressive as some of the chemicals found in detergents.

You can clean limescale and grease with citrus fruits. They also work great as an air freshener. All you have to do is boil lemon water on the stove.

Use replaceable vacuum cleaner attachments

During your spring cleaning, use all of your vacuum cleaner attachments to get to all of the awkward and hard-to-reach parts of your home.

You may have a hose extension, a small dust brush, or even an upholstery brush that you've never used. Now is the time to give it a try.

Prepare the garden furniture

The spring cleaning process doesn't necessarily end inside your home. Given that warming is just around the corner, it's worth preparing your outdoor furniture to be able to sit with a cup of coffee in the spring sun at any time.

To clean it from any dirt, cobwebs, and remnants of bad weather, all you need is a brush, soapy water, and a garden hose.
