Stir Crazy? Clean Your House
If you’re like many of us, you’ve been home for two months and it’s time for some major house cleaning. The evidence, from dirty windows to enough dust bunnies under the bed you can see the imprint from your slippers, offer telltale signs.
But you’re also likely working from home and helping your kids survive the end of the school year
These are the areas to make a top priority when you clean your house for a real deep clean:
Kitchen floor. Remove everything from the kitchen. Put away extra shoes trapped at your door, thoroughly sweep and swiffer the floor. If nothing else gets done, this project can make you happy.
Bedroom. Next up is the bedroom. If you haven’t done so, it might be time to rotate all the bulky winter clothes for lighter summer wear, although the northeast is expecting snow. Put away the laundry, sweep and swiffer the floor, and dust the dressers, nightstands, and tables.
Hallway. If you’re still motivated, carry that motivation right out into the hallway/foyer where you can dust the tables and shelves and sweep and swiffer the floors.
Polish. From there, it’s the dig deep and clean hard stuff: light fixtures, windows, drawers, shelves, ceiling fans, and more.
Why Deep Clean Your House?
Cleaning your house can help you be more organized. As you clean, you can put things back in their prier proper place. You will see clutter and start to visualize your home without it. Cleaning your house can be therapeutic, reducing your stress level and even helping you to see and appreciate your home in a new way.
You don’t have to be seeking perfection to do a deep cleaning – just keeping the dirt and dust bunnies to a cohabitable level is good enough.
