Simple Tips to Make Spring Cleaning Easier: Ways to jump start spring cleaning – It’s still cold outside, spring isn’t even starting to wake but you should get a jump start of any spring cleaning you can to make the jobs easier when Spring does come flying in. When the sun finally starts filling our homes again and the flowers wake up the last thing we want to do is spend days and days cleaning but we do every year none the less. For many of us summer and spring doesn’t last that long so we should make the best of it.
Simple Tips to Make Spring Cleaning Easier: Jump start spring cleaning tips
It’s cold and miserable and I am sure hiding behind a blanket with a hot chocolate and a book is the most appealing thing right now but if you use this time to get a head on tasks you will really appreciate it later on. Here are some of my tips to do just that.
Like I start any tasks I find it best to first sit down with a mug of coffee or tea (good so far) a pen, paper and your partner. Sit down and list all the tasks you do every spring cleaning, make a mega list. This will come useful come spring too so try and think of every little thing from changing air-con filters to brushing dust out of the garage to cutting back branches on that bloody tree! I advise you type this list up so you can keep it so of course you could start with the laptop straight away but there is something I like about writing on paper (yes, yes I know it’s wasteful!).
Once you have the definitive spring cleaning list you can start organising things. I’m sure well over half of the tasks are done inside the home. Inside you have heating and are protected from the outside so winter, spring, summer, autumn these tasks can be carried out any time. Bring these tasks forward and do them all within the next 4 weeks. Break them down to one or two an evening for a few weeks and you will be done in no time at all.
Tasks that are outdoors may be silly to start but things like a quick sweep of the garage or a very quick grass cut (if you snow has melted) could help you save time when the weather is in shape to actually get these things done.
My logic is as simple as do what you can early but hey life is as simple as you make it.
Throughout the year I also think you should look at the tasks that could be done at different times and maybe done 3-4 times as year as opposed to once. Even if doing it 4 times a year may take longer overall each time will be shorter so it may feel shorter, like cutting back the trees, dusting the garage, cleaning the gutters and other tasks such as polishing brass and pulling out the chest freezer to clean behind it.
