The Bank Holiday is finally here. Time to unplug your computer, switch off your work phone and get ready for four days off. But, like most of the UK at this time of year you will be finding that the job is far from over.
Here at Rackline we are firm believers in a clear space, a clear mind. Which is why we have some home spring cleaning tips for you. Many of you out there will be heading to your local DIY store, grabbing tins of paint and brushes and sprucing up your home. And others, well they will be clearing out cupboards, emptying out garages and heading to their local rubbish dump. Whatever you decide to do over the long weekend here are a few tips to help you along your way this weekend:
One of the first rules of a spring clean is to be ruthless. There is no point if you plan on continuing to hoard everything. The key is to get rid of anything you simply don’t use or don’t have any intention of using.
Don’t forget your kitchen cupboards
It is thought that us Brits hardly ever clean out our kitchen cupboards. Chances are you will find tins well past their sell-by-date. Make sure you give your kitchen cupboards a clean on the inside as well as the outside. And don’t forget the fridge!
Once you start dusting behind the sofas and book shelves you may find that your carpets could do with a clean. You can hire carpet cleaners from most DIY stores and with a little bit of elbow grease they will be looking as good as new.
A great way to get rid and recycle is to use your local rubbish dump. You can also sell your unwanted items on eBay and Gumtree. That way you can make some money too.
Other top tips
- Air out rugs
- Wash all bed linen
- Give the windows (inside and out) a good clean
- Wash curtains and cushion covers
Before you know it, with a little time and energy, your home will be looking and smelling as good as new.
Happy spring cleaning and happy Easter.
