Thorough spring and summer cleaning comes in phases. This article represents phase 2 in the god awful but necessary summer cleaning for the home. This is the second article on the art of cleaning.
Phase one is about using the summer cleaning purge to donate those gently used or unused items to charity. This one is about spring cleaning the home.
Phase one hopefully helped get rid of clothes for some more room. Now, the mission is to clean and purge.
Throw away those items that are no longer wearable and worn down. Especially those socks that lost their twin years ago. Give up on finding them. If they are clothes that are unusable, you may consider tearing them up to use as wash cloths.
When you’re going through your drawers to donate the clothes or throw them away, take them out to clean and dust the bottom. In the closet, use this time to dust the bottom of the closet.
Same thing as the kitchen cabinets. Take the items out and clean the bottom of the drawers. For those items you haven’t used but are dusty, throw them in the dishwasher if you have enough items. Remember to consider being green and using vinegar to clean for certain items.
This is the time where you dust those items like bookshelves or tall dressers. In other words, those places that people don’t see but still need cleaning. Too much dust can be a fire hazard. Take off any items, dust those then dust the area.
These summer cleaning items will take all day so rest, have a cool drink and rest up for phase 3 – the garage and/or shed.
