Spring Cleaning Top Tips

Spring is the perfect time of year to start ……. spring cleaning!


Although it may not feel like it, spring is finally here which means it is time to ditch the woolly jumpers and thermals and clear the clutter with your annual spring cleaning!

As the days are getting longer and the weather is getting warmer (…honestly), there really is no excuse not to put some time aside and enjoy the satisfaction of cleaning your home.

To make sure you make the most of your time, simply follow our top five cleaning tips below:

1. Squeaky clean windows

Ditch the chamois leather and expensive window cleaner for white wine vinegar and newspaper! Add a splash of white wine vinegar to warm water and use a sponge to apply to the window. Then use the newspaper to dry and leave a streak free shine!

2. Fed up of pet hair on your furniture?

Remove pet hair from your furniture quickly and easily with a damp rubber glove, any hair will cling to the glove, not the upholstery!

3. Remove the clutter!

Reclaim your home by maximizing your living space and removing unwanted items. Go through each room at a time getting rid of anything that can be thrown out, recycled or given to charity. For those sentimental items that you can’t fit into the already jam-packed loft, consider a personal self-storage unit. Craggs Storage offers various sized units and flexible terms dependent on your requirements from as little as £9.50 per week. Our units can be accessed 7am to 9pm, 7 days a week meaning you can easily call on your way home from work or over the weekend! Spring Cleaning doesn’t mean throwing everything away!

4. Many hands make like work!

Cleaning the whole house is not a one man job, get the whole family involved! By tackling the house together, not only will you not throw something important away, but you will also help your children understand the importance of being tidy and organised!

5. Tackle the toy box!

Toys can easily take over your home so be firm and ditch any broken or unwanted toys. Any unwanted usable toys can be given to a charity shop or donated to a local school or playgroup.
