It's the 1st of February and here in Ireland, today marks the first day of Spring. It's a bright crisp day and the perfect day to begin the Spring cleaning but...where do I start? It seems like clutter grows out of the walls and dust springs up over night!!! Do you have a method that you use to plan your spring cleaning? Do you even do a spring clean? What items do you include in a spring clean that dont get cleaned in the normal every day cleaning?
I always aim to clean curtains and maybe chimney (I'm not the one to do it.) It might also be a good idea to pull your fridge/stove from the wall and get behind them, as I'm sure most people neglect cleaning most of the time
My best "plan" for spring cleaning used to be to move house. Once a year was about right. Any longer than that and stuff I had no idea I or my kids owned would take up permanent residence in closets, under beds, in the basement or in the garage. Once moved from a 5 BR house I'd been in for 2 years to a 1 BR flat. Took 6 weeks to sort, pitch, and get rid of the overflow. Never again!
...spring cleaning for me is clearing out some of the cobwebs in my mind that took up a bit of space from the lack of light
I wait until the week before my mom is due to arrive for her weekly visit, and then I clean everything! Scrub down walls, take all the curtains done and so forth. If I don't, the first thing she says when she arrives is "Do we need to take those curtains down and wash them?" Love my mom:)
I start and sputter. As the energy allows I prioritize. Sadly, my favorite part of spring cleaning is the planning of the garden. Although, I must confess the gardener (me!) just yesterday ordered of all things a mechanical device called a vacuum cleaner. Will keep you posted on the clean up!
Clean roof! Time to check the gutters and downspouts that may have gotten clogged or had ice dams during the winter. Will also check for missing and broken shingles. With the Kansas City heat, I need to have an energy-efficient roof so broken and bald-face shingles are a no-no.
