More time spent at home means more time making (and staring at!) mess. From overflowing kitchen cupboards to living rooms filled with work admin and sportswear, it doesn’t take long for clutter to build up.
The good news is that you don’t need to invest a lot of time to take your home from scruffy to sparkling. Whether you only have five minutes to spare or a whole weekend to dedicate, we’ve got plenty of quick and easy ways to spring clean your home.
Quick & Easy Ways To Spring Clean Your Home
There’s nothing like the crisp air and sunny skies of spring to put us in the mood to tidy our space. Luckily, spring cleaning your home is quicker and easier than you might think. With the right playlist, you’ll be surprised at just how much you can get done!
How To Spring Clean Your Home In 5 Minutes
Five minutes might not sound like much, but even the smallest amount of time can make a difference. The trick is to opt for stress-free chores which bring big results, from vacuuming and putting away the laundry to loading and unloading the dishwasher.
The most important thing is to be proactive, so pop on your favourite song to give you an extra boost of motivation. You can even recruit little helpers to tackle their toy box. The shorter the time frame, the more likely they are to complete their task.
How To Spring Clean Your Home In 20 Minutes
Twenty minutes is the perfect amount of time to spring clean your bathroom. Start by wiping down the sink, shower and bath before organising shampoos, soaps and moisturisers in coordinating bathroom baskets. Listen to a podcast while you scrub and you’ll be finished before you know it.
A spotless bathroom deserves the very best towels, so why not update yours with matching Egyptian cotton towels and bath mats? Don’t forget to open the windows as you clean to let in some of that fresh spring air.
How To Spring Clean Your Home In An Hour
We know that finding a spare hour in your busy schedule is far from easy. To help make cleaning a priority, put a reminder in your phone and set a timer to keep you on track. You can also put devices on “Do Not Disturb” to reduce any tempting distractions.
To make the most of your time, it’s a good idea to dedicate your efforts to one room. If you choose your bedroom, tidy away clutter in storage baskets, dust down shelving and vacuum rugs to transform your space.
Brand new bedding is another quick and easy way to freshen your space. For a spring-ready theme, go for crisp white, pastel or floral duvet covers and pillowcases. Aah! Is there anything better than fresh sheets for spring?
How To Spring Clean Your Home In A Day
Spending a whole day cleaning your home can seem like a daunting task. To make things more manageable, we recommend creating a checklist of jobs for each room. There’s no greater feeling than ticking off a task!
With the whole day to play with you can concentrate on those time-consuming chores you might have left for a little too long – or perhaps that’s just us! From mopping your kitchen floor and deep-cleaning your oven to organising those cupboards with kitchen storage, now’s your chance to make your home sparkle.
A busy day of cleaning calls for your comfiest clothing combos. Is there anything joggers and sweatshirts can’t do?
How To Spring Clean Your Home In A Weekend
If you’re dedicating an entire weekend to your spring cleaning mission, you’re going to want to pace yourself. A good way to structure your time is to spend the first day cleaning and the second day adding decorative touches.
Luckily, there are plenty of ways to give your home a new season twist without spending a fortune. To follow the trends but keep costs low, focus on home accessories. From candles and ornaments to vases, updating your décor will be the cherry on top of your clean and tidy home.
Once you’ve finished, sit back and relax with a well-deserved treat – you’ve earned it!
