With this lovely spring weather we are having, don't you feel like throwing open the windows to get plenty of fresh air into the house?

And now is the perfect time to give your home a good spring clean from top to bottom. But if the idea of tackling the whole house is a bit overwhelming, we have some tips to make spring cleaning easy and maybe even enjoyable! You can make it a bit of fun for all the family and assign age-appropriate chores to each person with rewards or surprises when the tasks are done.

Spring cleaning checklist

  • Write a list of the rooms you want to tackle and if you want to be super organised, write a list of the areas you intend to clean for each room. If the list is too long, leave the areas that get cleaned regularly and concentrate on those often-forgotten spaces.

  • Tidy and declutter. This will make it easier and quicker when you start cleaning.

  • Make sure you have the right cleaning products, cloths and brushes to hand and put them in a caddy or basket so you can easily carry them around.

  • Have a speaker or radio to hand so that you can listen to your favourite playlist or podcast whilst you work.

  • Plan a little reward for yourself at the end of each chore, because you deserve it.

Once you have spring cleaned, why not brighten up your table with a new wipe clean tablecloth? We have plenty of designs to choose from and you’ll love the fresh new look of your kitchen.
