Spring is the time not only for love, sun, and birds, but also for a big clean-up. Some dread this moment as much as they did the word “dentist” at 8 years old.
To make cleaning easier for those of you who loathe it, we bring you some hints that will help you save your nerves and get done with the work in no time.
Stop being afraid of cleaning up
- The principal rule of quality cleaning is accepting that the seasonal clean-up is only a refresher for your house, not a cataclysm. If you do it twice a year instead of once a decade, the whole thing will not take much of your time. “Clean house, clean thoughts” is a good thing to say to yourself before initiating grand changes in your dwelling and your life, too.
Planning the work
- Everything is simpler when you have a plan. You won’t dust your bookshelf twice if you strike the point off your list. Don’t try to make everything shine at once; it’s easier to divide the work into stages and do it for a couple of hours each day for a few days. You shouldn’t end up hating everyone and everything after finishing the clean-up.
