We’ll take a look at decluttering, planning, and cleaners to use. We hope our tips help you tidy up your space for a fresh start this spring!


Get Ready, Get Set, Declutter

Incorporating a system to declutter as you do your spring cleaning is a good idea. Not only will you free up more space, you will have less to work around. So in conjunction with your cleaning, downsize. As you go through drawers, cupboards, and closets, sort through your things and determine whether or not you need to keep every single item. Chances are you don’t.


Designate categories for all items: 1) Keep. Create a dedicated place for each item you intend to keep. 2) Give away or sell. Put a deadline on when these items have to be gone. If they’re still hanging around when you reach that deadline; toss them. 3) Toss. If it’s worn out, broken, out of style, ill-fitting, or a duplicate of something else, it’s not likely you will miss it. Toss it!



Having a plan for your cleaning is important for it to be thorough and successful. We recommend following a checklist or creating cleaning zones so you don’t miss anything. Break the cleaning into tasks that can be completed in 20 minutes, a morning or an afternoon, or on a weekend. That way, whatever amount of time you have to devote to cleaning will be productive. Set a timer to stay motivated and choose upbeat music to listen to while you clean.


The Right Tools

Just like a tradesman needs the correct tools to work effectively and efficiently, when cleaning is the task having the correct cleaning products and tools can make all the difference. Take a look at this basic cleaning supplies list from Molly Maid and plan a trip to stock up on what you may be missing.


Once your apartment has been through spring cleaning, take time to sit back, relax, and enjoy the sun shining through your apartment. We hope today’s post has been helpful. Thanks for reading!
