It’s not too early to start spring cleaning
As the refreshing season of spring rolls in I feel like just lazing around outside on the porch, lying down on the green grass and enjoying everything ‘springy’. Suddenly I am reminded of the boring and rather tedious chore of cleaning, which I truly hate. I prefer tackling spring cleaning rather early so that there is more time for relaxation with spring around the corner.
Trust me; you really don’t have to wait for winter to be over to start with those dreary tasks. There are a lot of things that you can do early, so that you are more relaxed for the warmer weather. Here are some early spring cleaning tasks that you can finish off-
1. Carpet cleaning
As the winter snow starts melting, it’s time to clean my carpets. With pets at home, these carpets are a major trap for both hair and dust. So, even though it’s early, carpet cleaning is a rather advantageous option. I use green carpet cleaners because they are organic, have almost no chemicals (considering my pets keep licking the entire carpet) and are really gentle on the carpet too. It gets rid of all the dust and allergens, without causing any adverse reactions, especially when you breathe in those fumes.
2. Organic duvet covers
It’s time to bring out your soft flannels and pure cotton duvets and put away those thick blankets. Organic duvets are a great choice because they are so soft and cozy. Plus, you really don’t have to worry about anything fuzzy causing allergies or rashes on your skin. The Company Store has this floral duvet set that I love because it’s so pretty to look at.
3. Washing your winter garments
Again, you won’t need your trenches and wool coats anymore. Instead of spending a fortune at laundry bills, use a natural laundry detergent. The detergent is tough on dirt and stains and chlorine free. You can use them in machines and at extreme water temperatures too. Be assured, the fabric of your garment will not suffer any damage.
4. Cleaning cabinets
Last but not the least, I clean and polish my wooden cabinets in advance. They lose their luster during harsh winter months and this is certainly a chore that is much better started sooner than later since it is a time consuming chore.
