As tomorrow marks the official start of Spring, today I've decided to dedicate the full day to Spring cleaning. And as I do just that, I thought that I would share my top tips with you and here they are;
Pick up everything
If you're anything like me, you'll most probably have quite a few things on the floor of your bedroom, bathroom, living room, kitchen; basically any room in your house. There's at least one dirty sock under my bed, bags and boxes of online shopping that I haven't put away yet and plenty of cardboard boxes ready to be recycled. It's crazy how much of a difference having a floor free from clutter makes.
Is it bad to admit that I very rarely dust my DVD player, Sky box and TV? Therefore when I do it's normally coated in so much dust. The same can be said for the tops of high shelves and my intricate metal headboard. Please remind me to start dusting more frequently.
Flip your mattress
Every couple of months I like to flip my mattress. It helps to prevent one side of the mattress from sagging. It also gives me a chance to see what I've hidden under my bed in the vast array of bags and boxes under there. I'm always a little bit jealous of my parents who have a built in storage system under their bed. Bed Guru, who I'm collaborating with on this blog post, are currently running a giveaway, as part of their #SpringCleanGuru campaign, to win such a bed, one with four drawers built in. How convenient would that be? If you feel like entering, just head over to their social channels.
Put on fresh bedding
Again, the difference that this makes is truly unbelievable. Not only will your bedroom look so much more put together but nothing beats getting into fresh bedding at the end of a long day!
Donate/sell unwanted clothes and clutter
H&M are currently running a great scheme where you receive a £5 off voucher every time you donate clothes or fabric in-store. That way you're de-cluttering, doing good and getting a little treat in return.
And if the item still has tags on it, why not list it on eBay or Depop? If you want rid of it quick, start with a low starting price or put it on for a couple of quid. I've recently made a couple of hundred pounds solely from listing on both platforms. Let me know if you'd like me to dedicate an entire blog post to my eBay/Depop tips?
