Spring is a time not only for romance and renewal, but also for general cleaning. You can start the traditional big cleaning on the eve of Easter in advance so that you don't have to put everything off until the last week.

Experts say that for some people, cleaning can have a calming effect. Routine tasks like mopping the floor or clearing the kitchen of junk can help you calm down and improve concentration, which is good for your mental and physical health. The Express has revealed how to freshen up your home in spring.

Benjy Lewis, a British interior designer, shared his tips on how to clean your home effectively and efficiently and freshen up your home. Some simple cleaning tasks are a great way to start a new season after hibernation.

Tip 1

The first step is to get rid of excess dust. Take the carpets outside to give them a good shake. Carpets can be a real breeding ground for bacteria, so you should also clean them regularly. Citric acid (diluted in water in a 1:1 ratio) will quickly remove old stains. Baking soda and vinegar will also come in handy. If the carpet contains wool, viscose, or silk, do not try to use improvised means; such carpets should be dry-cleaned.

Tip 2

It's also time to change the bedding, wash not only pillowcases and duvet covers, but also various rugs or bedspreads.

Tip 3

Place all cleaning supplies in a portable basket when cleaning. This step will help speed up the process - you won't have to run to the drawers every time. Make sure you have all the cleaning products you need, as well as protective gloves, brushes, rags, sponges, etc.

Tip 4

Use the right fabric. To achieve the best results, it is important to use the right materials. Microfiber is the best option. For wiping glasses and dishes, it is better to use a towel made of fine linen.

Tip 5

Use the right cleaning products for the material and type of surface. Check the labels to make sure you choose the right products, otherwise you risk damaging your furniture. All home life hacks should first be tested on a small hidden surface.

You should also take care of safety. The expert emphasized that latex rubber gloves make your hands sweat, especially when using hot water and soap. Nitrile gloves are more comfortable, but they need to be used carefully when working with corrosive chemicals.
