Springtime is upon us! That means flowers are blooming, the weather is warming, and the natural world around us experiences a general rejuvenation. If your apartment at 803 Corday could use a refresh too, consider scheduling a spring cleaning date! Tidying your home will clear away any unnecessary clutter that may have built up earlier in the year, and make your apartment more liveable. Here are some ways to make your spring cleaning seamless and fun!
Implement Cleaning Games for Kids
If you have little ones, chances are the thought of pitching in to help clean sends them running for the hills. You can get them back on board by encouraging cleaning games for kids! These activities add an element of playfulness to the tidying process. By reframing chores as something to enjoy, kids become more open-minded and develop healthy habits with cleaning in the long term. Plus, parents who join in with their little ones get back in touch with their inner child too!
DIY Cleaners for the Craft-Curious
One mantra that’s symbolic of springtime is, “out with the old, in with the new.” Embracing positive change can include the cleaning products you use to tidy too! Depending on store-bought cleaners can cut into that household budget, but DIY cleaners can be made for pennies on the dollar. This citrus-scented all-purpose cleaner, for example, takes just five ingredients to make, and includes some common household supplies you may already have on hand.
Even More Green Cleaning Hacks
The best part about using homemade cleaning products? How eco-conscious it can be! Another problem with store-bought products is that they typically contain harmful chemicals and give off harsh smells. The naturally grime-fighting properties found in vinegar, baking soda, and borax leave less of an impact on Mother Earth, and don’t skimp out on effectiveness. Check out this list of green cleaning hacks to see how you can use these supplies and more for every corner of your household!
Once you get that spring cleaning done, the general mood of your home environment can improve considerably! How do you plan on tackling that mess? Let us know in the comments!
