How to Make Spring Cleaning Enjoyable and Effective

Had all the winter fun? Looking forward to spring already? Well, after a gloomy winter, everyone wants to welcome a beautiful spring; the only problem is preparing for spring cleaning. The idea of having to wash and store away winter clothes, dust and clean the house, making it all sparkly clean is enough to make you feel exhausted. But, don’t worry. GSR’s cleaning team has some valuable advice for you and we assure you that if you follow these instructions, spring cleaning will actually be an activity you enjoy instead of dread. So ready for some cleaning lessons? Here you go.

Lesson 1 – Storing Away Winter Clothes

Most people simply store away winter stuff such as blankets and quilts without having them dry-cleaned. It’s very important that you get all your winter stuff dry cleaned before storing it away – even if you haven’t used it. This way, any humidity or mold formed during those dark winter days will be removed and the garment will not smell if you store it for the year. Now, for the storing, use zipped plastic bags that you can easily get at stores and start packing up gradually. Don’t wait for one day to do it all. If you think you won’t be needing that thick leather jacket, pack it. This way, by the time spring arrives, you’ve already got everything packed.

Lesson 2 – Pack Neatly

Don’t fold your clothes when packing as that will cause some hard to straighten out creases and would also consume extra space. So make sure you roll it neatly into the bag. Segregate the clothes into various bags. Keep one only for shawls and sweaters while the other for shirts and pants respective.

Lesson 3- Label Your Clothes

For ease of use, label the bags you’ve stored. When winter arrives, you don’t need to go searching for that shawl. All you have to do is check the shawl bag and there it is! Keep your winter and summer clothes separate. Either use the lower portion of the wardrobe to store all winter clothes or place them neatly in the attic in a cardboard box. This way your cupboard won’t be too crowded.

Lesson 4- Donate Clothes if You No Longer Need Them

The clothes you toss out is probably still in very good condition and should be donated to the poor and homeless. You can create bundles of those clothes and send them over to a social institute or give it to the homeless.

Lesson 5- Sell Christmas Decorations to Flea Markets

Want to get rid of your Christmas tree to get a bigger, better one next year. Well, don’t just turn it into garbage. Put it up for sale in the online world or send it to your local flea market for a good price. Do the same for all other Christmas decorations and ornaments that you no longer use.
