Spring Cleaning – Get into the Groove

Spring Cleaning – Get into the Groove

After our winter season, just hearing the word Spring puts a “spring” in our step. That joyful word makes us think: tulips and daffodils; bbq’s and deck parties; shorts and sunscreen; and cleaning. Oh ya! Spring cleaning…. way to burst my bubble!

Although some of us truly love cleaning… the before and after; fresh smell of our house; the shine and sparkle, most of us… do not. Most people have great difficulty getting motivated to clean, especially, a deep thorough top to bottom spring clean. Here are some great tips to help you get in to the groove:

  1. Plan an Event: held at your home shortly after the cleaning. This will kick start your motivation.
  2. Make a Prioritized List: I am a big believer in organized lists and a timeline. The most critical tasks get done first.
  3. Play Music: Make a playlist of your favourites, or just turn the radio on.
  4. Set a timer and challenge yourself to what you can accomplish: 20 minutes always seems manageable. The countdown is a natural motivator. Repeat.
  5. At Take Time We Always Work in a Systematic way: to start, go room to room collecting garbage, tidying and removing whatever doesn’t belong (like dirty dishes)
  6. Make every Step Count. Be organized in your cleaning routine. Complete one level before starting another.  Don’t zig zag around the room or you will miss things.
  7. Wear an Apron: with pockets to hold your cleaning tools and clean cloths
  8. Colour Code Your Cloths: don’t mix up bathroom cloths with kitchen cloths etc. Change to fresh cloths often.
  9. Reward yourself. Once your finished. Look over your work and touch up areas if needed. Now, treat yourself!
