Every year we get that sudden need to start afresh, whether it’s to move house or simply have a giant clear out of all the items cluttering up our space. All it takes is a free day at the weekend, some bin bags, and cleaning products and we could completely regenerate our homes.
There’s a myriad of ways to get started with your spring cleaning and you can choose whether to do it all at once, or make it a project that spans a few weekends. Whatever you choose, here are 5 ways to spring clean your home.
Clearing out unwanted furniture
When it comes to organising unwanted or unused furniture, either selling it or storing it are the best options. To make your spring cleaning a little more environmentally friendly, why not store your furniture in a Storebox until you can find it a new home, or you decide to renovate it and turn it into something brand new.
Giving your home a deep clean
You can also use our units to temporarily store the items, whilst you’re giving your house a good, deep clean.
We usually keep on top of areas like the kitchen and bathroom, but our bedrooms and living rooms can often fall victim of dust bunnies. Make sure to move all furniture out of the way and thoroughly clean the carpets, skirting boards, windowsills, and any blinds or curtains.
This can also be the perfect time to give your bathrooms and kitchens an extreme clean. We often keep on top of surface dirt, but giving these rooms a thorough clean can help to keep them germ free.
Selling unwanted items
If you have a clear out and find you have a pile of items you just don’t use anymore, why not take them to a car boot sale? You can earn a little bit of extra money, whilst also making some extra space in your home.
Attacking your food cupboards
It’s easy to forget about what’s lurking in the very back of our food cupboards. Why not have a good clear out once a month, to make sure no food goes to waste. If you find items you know you won’t use in time, you can always offer them to food drives, instead of throwing them away.
Donating old clothes
We always keep items of clothing that has never fitted us or that has a hole in it, but we can’t bear to throw it away. Why not gather up all the clothes you never wear, or clothes that are out of season and you know you’ll never wear again, and donate them to charity?
Having a good clear out cannot only help you give your home a much-needed refresh, but it can also do wonders for your well being. Having a clean and tidy home can lead to an uncluttered mind and help us feel calmer and more relaxed.
