🧤 Spring Cleaning Mistakes
So the number one spring cleaning mistake that you’re probably making is just not having a really good plan. You know, spring cleaning from head to toe is a big project. If you don’t have order to the project before you begin, you might find yourself overwhelmed. So having a plan is numero UNO.
Number two spring cleaning mistake is skipping the tough jobs. Yeah! nobody wants to pull out the oven and clean all that greasy stuff behind it. Scary! I get it, but it’s got to get done.
Number three spring cleaning mistake, using dirty tools. You know, if you’ve just cleaned the oven it’s probably got some stuff on it. So that’s probably not a good idea to use that thingy to wipe down other surfaces and spread all that love around that you just took off the stove.
Number four would be cleaning all by yourself. Hey! this is a big job, even broken down into bite size pieces. This is a great big project and it’s really best suited for more than one person. So cleaning all by yourself is usually a mistake.
Number five is expecting to get everything done in one day. Better idea would be to break it into pieces so that it’s more manageable. Expecting to get everything done in one day is definitely one of the big spring cleaning mistakes.
A Must to Note to Avoid Spring Cleaning Mistakes
Number six is using only one product. Yeah! you can go buy a big bottle of pine salt and try to clean everything with it. It’s good for some stuff. It’s good for toilets, it’s good for some floors, but in other places that just kind of leaves a weird chemical film, right? You don’t want to use that stuff on your windows.
Number seven is holding onto stuff too long. So, if you’ve got a lot of knickknacks around, that really don’t mean much to you and are kind of cluttering the surface, it’s really making it difficult to clean and keep it clean. The best idea would be to do a little bit of purging, decluttering and get rid of stuff.
Your Home is a Living Space Not a Storage Space
Number eight spring cleaning mistake is cleaning from bottom to top. You’d be surprised how often this happens. People do a great job,they clean their floors up, they move up, they clean the counter tops, the cabinets. Then, they move up to the fans and they cleaned the fans and all the dirt falls down on all of the stuff they already cleaned. Yeah! Big mistake. So, start from the top. Work your way down.
Number nine is keeping the windows closed while you’re cleaning. So picture this, you’re cleaning that dirty fan that we’ve been talking about three or four times already.The dirt is fallen off the windows open. It’s blowing dirt where? Right on to all the other stuff in the house. So keeping the windows closed where you’re cleaning is really a good idea.
Here’s another idea to help you in cleaning the lost art of house cleaning.
🏘 A Clean Home is a Happy Home
