Declutter your home with our spring cleaning tips

As the days start to get longer and we move into spring, many of us start to think about the necessary evil of spring cleaning. While it’s not everyone’s favorite task, our home experts have compiled a list of their spring cleaning tips and secrets on how to declutter your home that will make the daunting task a little more manageable. Even if you don’t have time to clean your whole house, focusing on these areas will breathe new life in your surroundings.

Here are some areas you should focus on for this year’s spring clean:

Are You Utensil Hoarding?

A thorough inventory of just what your kitchen cupboards hold and what you have on your kitchen surfaces can be quite revealing. There are plenty of advice columns out there suggesting that we could all survive happily with just six or seven vital pots, pans and baking sheets. Most of us prefer a few more, but chances are your cupboards and surface areas have items that haven’t been reached for in the last year or longer.

If that’s the case start to de-clutter now. Getting rid of duplicate or worn pots, pans and utensils, shows your kitchen in a whole new light, with clearly accessible surfaces free to create on.

Refresh Kitchen & Bathroom Surfaces

A deep cleansing, lime-scale removing, surface brightening treatment plan can energize the most overused kitchen & bathroom surfaces. The secret to beating limescale is using a trusted remover such as Viakal. Viakal contains a unique combination of active ingredients that lift tough limescale and dirt. It fizzes away to leave your surfaces clean, smooth and shiny. It also contains special technology which helps prevent water deposits and the build up of limescale on ceramic surfaces. This specially-created formula creates a ‘sheeting’ effect, enabling water to slide off surfaces easily. This prevents the formation of watermarks, leaving your bathroom and shower walls hygienically clean and bright, preventing limescale to come back for long.

What’s In Your Bathroom Cabinets?

Too many of us are guilty of keeping half opened beauty, bathing and medicinal products way beyond their sell by dates. Start any bathroom deep cleanse with a thorough clear out of no longer use-worthy products.

Tips

  • Bathroom vents are culprits for gathering mountains of dust. Use the nozzle of your vacuum cleaner to effectively remove built up trapped dust.
  • Keep old toothbrushes in your cleaning kit to get around tricky areas like toilet seat hinges.
Stand cans of beauty products like shaving foam on rubber or slate mats to avoid the rust rings they can leave if standing directly on bath or sink sides.

Clean Windows?

Dirty panes are no problem when you use rubber-edged squeegees, which are quicker and more effective than cloth or newspaper. They often come in a variety of sizes and a screw-on extension will let you reach high spots.

To start, dip a sponge into a bucket of warm water and a few drops of mild dish soap. Wet window; rub dirt away. Dampen squeegee; starting at an upper corner, draw it down pane from top to bottom. Repeat, overlapping strokes and wiping rubber edge with sponge after each stroke.

Update Bed Linens and Bathroom Towels

Replace your bedding and towels for a quick refresh. For an easy custom duvet cover, use two flat sheets. Place sheets back to back, and sew around the perimeter, allowing for a 1/2-inch seam; leave an opening at the bottom. To close, sew twill-tape ties or velcro tape to the inside edges.
