Spring is the perfect time to go through your kitchen pantry and bathroom cabinets and remove old food, spices, toiletries and items that have just been sitting around. You will be surprised how much we accumulate in the winter months and most likely they won’t be needed in the spring. Check expiration dates on dried foods in your pantry and ensure cosmetics and household cleaners in your bathroom are still usable and fresh. Once you’ve purged, remove everything and clean the shelves and install shelf paper if desired. Shelf paper can add color to your cabinets, drawers, and shelving while making it easier to clean for the next season that comes around.
Spring cleaning tip 2: Clean out your bedrooms and wardrobe closets
Let’s face it, the time for bulky sweaters and heavy coats can be replaced with lighter clothes and therefore your bedroom wardrobe closets can use a spring cleaning. Go through clothes and fold up and store out-of-season clothing in under bed storage or at the top of your wardrobe closet shelves. Bulky coats, boots, and outerwear may be able to be housed in a hallway closet or in an attic or basement that is not used often. Remember your lifestyle will help dictate what clothes can be put away. Same with your kids’ clothing, remove what isn’t needed to make room for spring seasonal clothing. Vacuum and clean out shelving, flooring, and other surfaces in your closets to remove dust that has accumulated over the months.
