Time for spring cleaning

Time for spring cleaning

Whether we like it or not, with the change in the weather comes time for finally buckling down and devoting some time to finding your bedroom floor. Maybe you can even help your parents out around the house. Just an idea …
Speaking of ideas, here is a smattering of them on how to make those dreaded household chores not quite so tedious.
If you listen to music while you clean, it will stimulate your brain, and likely motivate you to keep going.
Believe it or not: If you are feeling stressed out, try cleaning. Many people find a little bit of cleaning to be therapeutic. It will not only clear up the clutter in your house, but also some of the clutter in your mind.
Having trouble getting a whole room clean? Work from the dirtiest part of the room clockwise, and stay focused. Don’t jump around the room, and don’t move on until the part you’re working on is completely clean. This way, you work methodically around the room and get the whole space clean efficiently.
Compartmentalize. We promise that is the key to getting tasks done. Making everything smaller makes chores go by quickly and makes a big job on the whole seem less horrendous.
When cleaning your room, if you don’t need it, throw it away. Be honest with yourself, and don’t make up an excuse about why you might need it. ‘Cause you know you don’t.
Is your trash can stinky? If so, just follow three easy steps to make it smell clean and fresh: (1.) Take the can outside and hose it out until it looks squeaky clean. (2.) Leave it upside down to dry. (3.) When it’s dry, bring it in and sprinkle some baking soda in the bottom before putting in the trash bag.
Are you having trouble fitting all of your clothes in your closet? Just place a soda pop tab on the top of each hanger. Then you can hang another hanger on the tab (see left). This will double your closet space and minimize your stress. Just don’t drink enough pop to outfit your whole closet in one day!
