It may be snowing outside, but the first day of Spring is next Tuesday, and Passover and Easter Sunday are just a few weeks away. What does that mean?
The Cleaning Of The House. (Cue scary music!)
If you’re ready to tackle the house floor to ceiling inside and out, check out Martha Stewart’s ultimate spring cleaning checklist. But if you’re resealing grout lines just isn’t your thing, you can still welcome in the new season with 4 easy steps that all take 15 minutes or less:
- Open the windows every day, even if it’s just for a few minutes;
- Clean out your refrigerator and make room for lighter, clean eating, like fish and plenty of citrus;
- Donate out of season clothes you don’t love instead of storing them; and
- Do two extra things on your cleaning list. Clean your baseboards or room vents, wipe down switch plates and outlets, and sterilize the toys of your human or furry kids.
Above all else, don’t let someone else’s onerous idea about spring cleaning become the boss of you. Decide that your version is plain and simple: You’re making your place the happiest, most beautiful place on the block. With that kind of attitude, getting ready for those endless long, sunny days will be a pleasure.
