There's no doubt about it, spring cleaning is always going to be boring. Even if you really do need a good clear out and refresh after winter, there are a lot more interesting things you could be doing with your time.
This is why making your spring clean as simple and easy as possible is only ever going to be a good thing. To help you achieve this, we've got some great tips to make your home feel fresh and clean without taking up all of your spare time.
Open the windows
If your house is feeling a bit musty after months of winter weather, rather than going mad with the clearing out, simply open all your windows. You might not believe it, but airing out your house will instantly make it feel cleaner and brighter.
Whether it's bookcases, coffee tables or counters, surfaces tend to get filled up with anything and everything, which can instantly make a room look messy. Get rid of everything that doesn't need to be on a surface and give it a dust for an instantly tidier room.
Clean your floors
Carpets and rugs gather up a lot of dirt and can make rooms smell and look less clean than they are. Cleaning your floors thoroughly will help to brighten rooms and make them smell so much better.
Move things around
Having a simple switch around of some furniture or ornaments can make a room look clean and tidy, as well as make it seem as though there is a lot more space. You may want to dust as you go, but you'll be surprised at what a difference this makes with very little effort.
One of the simplest ways to make it seem like you've had a good clean ready for spring is to introduce a fresh fragrance to your home. This can make a room feel cleaner even if you haven't done anything extra and is a great way to embrace the season.
