How to get the most out of your spring clean

September 16, 2020

 

Spring. After the long and somewhat disorder of the 2020 winter, the morphing of scents and sounds make you want to do Marky proud and #wanderoutyonder. There truly is no better time to live in WA’s beautiful South West. The forests are green; the rivers are full; the grapevines are shooting, and the wildflowers are blooming. You get it, conditions are mint. But, if 2020 has got your home looking slightly less serene (home schooling, work from home, anyone?), it’s time to take stock, roll up the sleeves, and get ready for the most important springtime cleanse yet!

Shake off the winter blues, dust off the … err dust, and breathe fresh energy and vitality into your home with these spring cleaning hacks we’ve rounded up for you.

Just get started

There’s something therapeutic about a good top-to-bottom spring clean. It’s like emptying the cobwebs from your mind while giving your home a deep clean. But don’t jump in too hard, otherwise you’ll burn out before you even begin and lose interest entirely. Start with a list of the jobs you want to tackle and spread it out over a few weeks.

Each home is different. So, think about those onerous tasks that get overlooked in your day-to-day housework. Start at the top, dust ceilings and vents, and work your way down washing scuff marks of walls and skirting’s. Bring in more light by washing windows inside and out, and sparkling any shiny surfaces. Get behind the furniture and give it a good dust and vacuum beneath the couch cushions, you may even find a dollar coin or two! Be certain to declutter your wardrobe too, and give to good causes the clothes you didn’t use this winter.

And, don’t forget your furry friends! After winter, the dog’s bedding can do with a good wash and fresh blankets to match.

Deep clean but go green

Do away with the harsh cleaning products and go natural. These days there are many off-the-shelf eco-friendly options, but if you’re keen, you can make a remedy of your own (backed by a little research, naturally).

Going chem-free is healthier for your family, your pets, your home, and a win for the environment too.

Out with the old, in with new décor

Spruce up your interiors with new season interior pieces. No need to head to the city; the South West homeware stores, like Acquire Home Living, Hatch Home + Style and Empire Homewares and Furniture, are brimming with the latest styles. Revitalise your home with on-trend colours and update your cushions, doona cover, throws and rugs or anything that takes your fancy.

Bring the outdoors in

Add greenery to your living spaces; the more the better, we say. Not only does foliage add colour and brighten up spaces, but plants are hard-working, purging the air of indoor pollutants. Devil’s Ivy, Peace Lily and Philodendron are just some popular air purifying plants and can be found locally at The Green Depot or The Pottery Boutique.

Gorgeous colourful blooms shouldn’t be overlooked for instantly beautifying your home. Get some divine inspiration at Zest Flowers.
