Cleaning Challenge: How to be smart and efficient with your spring cleaning
It can sometimes seem impossible to find the inspiration to dive into the cleaning cupboard and kick off your spring clean. Even when you finally get the motivation to start, it can feel like a never-ending chore. Have we put you off your spring clean yet? Whether that’s a yes or no, we want to make the daunting spring clean as easy and quick for you as possible. That’s why we’ve devised our top tips on how to make your spring clean a whole lot easier.
1. Plan, plan, plan
Save time on your spring clean and get planning. Starting with a to-do list will help you tick of the chores as you go and not let the housework get on top of you. Next, make sure that you have the right tools to tackle the deep clean. You don’t want to get halfway through the house and realise you’ve run out of mop refills. So, before you really get down to business, get organised. We promise it will help you fly through the spring clean in no time.
2. Clean curtains make all the difference
Like most fabrics your curtains will need a good wash once in a while. Over time, curtains gather dust, pet hair and sometimes even mould spores – not ideal! If you’re going for a real spring clean, then you won’t want to clean the entire house and leave the curtains to sprinkle dust around like a pesky dust fairy.
How you wash your curtains depends on the fabric so always check the washing label first and read the manufacturer’s advice before proceeding. For machine washable curtains wash one panel at a time and use a ‘delicates’ cycle, or a cool wash. For hand washing, use the bath or a large sink, a handwash powder or liquid and check the washing label for the best water temperature.
Once the washing is completed, the Vileda Doble X-Legs Indoor Airer is perfect for air-drying the curtains. The airer’s extending lines and increased drying space will help reduce creasing and make ironing easier.
3. Don’t let the windows stop you
Does your household contain furry four-legged friends or little monsters? If yes, you’ll know how grubby glass doors or wall length windows can get with handprints, nose prints and even sometimes face prints (kids, huh?). It’s only as you begin cleaning your windows that you realise how grubby they actually are. With a window vacuum this normally tedious task can be finished in a flash!
The Vileda Windomatic Power is a cordless window vacuum which helps to speed up the time it takes to clean your windows by quickly removing excess water and suds after having wiped them with a wet cloth.
