10 Spring Cleaning Hacks  December 24, 2015 – 11:12 am

spring cleaning dusting fanThe days are longer and a little warmer, yes that’s right it’s finally Spring again! However that also means it’s time to de-clutter and give your house a good spring clean. Although the extra work can make it seem like a monstrous weekend-long chore, we’ve collected a few simple hacks that will see you finished with your spring cleaning in no time.

From organising your house to dusting fans, the list of to-do’s can be endless but here are 10 of the best spring cleaning hacks:

1. Dusting the ceiling fan
Before you pick up the feather duster and make a mess all over the room, grab an old pillow case and put it over the fan arm to scrape the dust straight into the pillow case. This will save on your vacuuming efforts later.

2. Organise your wardrobe

So try this – hang all of wardrobe with the coat hangers the opposite direction to when you autonomously put them away. Then in a couple of weeks you will be able to see what you really wear and donate the rest to charity.

3. Messy drawers no more
We’ve all been guilty of just shoving clean washing into a drawer and only for it to explode on the floor when our favourite t-shirt is in the bottom. An easy solution is to pack them similar to the image below; that way you can always find what you’re looking for and not make a mess.

4. Practical shelving

Putting shelves in upside down is not as silly as it sounds. It will offer a great solution to organising household items just as towels, books and toys. It’s a no brainer really.

5. No laundry basin

If you live in a smaller apartment you might have a shared laundry or tiny sink and unable to fit a mop bucket in to fill up. By using a dust pan to funnel water from the tap to a bucket it will require less effort, just make sure to bend those knees when you pick it up

Over time glassware will get cloudy but to make them sparkle again it’s simple with a bit of vinegar and a paper towelling.

7. Shower curtain mould

To get rid of the mouldy build-up on your shower curtain you can throw it in the washing machine or you could avoid that by making a natural solution that you could reuse every few weeks.

In an empty spray bottle fill with half vinegar and half water, stretch the curtain the full width so that you can get in the creases and spray the vinegar solution. Leave for a couple of moments and then wipe clean with a damp cloth.

8. Bathroom grout cleaning

Sometimes scrubbing is just no good and very labour intensive, so to make it easier on yourself soak cotton wool in bleach and then place along the mouldy grout. This will get rid (or at least make it easier to scrub) of the mould and save you time and effort.
