Top 5 Home Cleaning Tips During Quarantine This Spring!


spring cleaning tips during quarantine

After that lovely winter season, comes this equinox of Spring in the air. Time to open the windows, let the fresh air in and get down to all that spring-cleaning task! But with a pandemic emerging everywhere – fear not! This is the perfect time to do your household cleaning activities while on quarantine! In fact, these five tips will help make spring cleaning tasks in time of coronavirus quarantines less dread-inducing and more of a piece of cake!

Here are some spring cleaning tips during quarantine:

1. Take advantage of having more time on your hands

We’re in the unique position right now where you don’t have to worry about getting it all done and running out and taking care of the other things you generally have going on. This really is kind of a rare and unique opportunity to really take your time with things and spread it out … (Feel) encouraged by the fact that you do have the time, so you can take on some of those projects you would otherwise shun for more exciting things. So, where do you start?

  • Sweep the patio, walkways, clean exterior windows, light fixtures and patio furniture.
  • Wash interior windows (this is a good one to get the kids to help with).
  • Clean out closets, cupboards and the pantry.
  • Change filters, check furnace, carbon monoxide and smoke detector systems.
  • Deep-clean appliances and under the kitchen and bathroom sinks.
2. Make a to-do list, then divide and conquer

Start with a wish list of all the things at home you want to scrub, wash or tidy up. Then go from there, Maker recommends. You’ll figure out what’s feasible later, but for now, shoot for the moon.

Try not to clean the whole house at once. Cleaning routine that spreads the work out over the day, week or month is much more productive and keeps the house clean most of the time versus having to do a full house clean on the weekend, when you can’t stand it anymore or when someone is coming over.

Coming up with a calendar for different tasks might also help make things less daunting. Rapinchuk recommends starting by wiping counters, vacuuming, running a few loads of laundry, putting away clutter and making beds. Once that’s taken care of, she likes splitting different chores into different days:

  • Monday: Bathroom day.
  • Tuesday: Dusting day.
  • Wednesday: Vacuuming day.
  • Thursday: Floor washing day.
  • Friday: Catch up on anything from the previous days you didn’t get to.
  • Saturday: Sheets and towels day.
  • Sunday: Upkeep those basic starter tasks.
3. Channel your inner Marie Kondo (and have the kids join you)

Items don’t have to be falling apart to warrant getting rid of them – things still in good shape can be sold or donated to a thrift store. Let someone else enjoy your treasures if you don’t have a real purpose for them anymore.

4. Short on cleaning products? No problem

Even if you’re out of some household cleansers, you most likely have the right substitutes on hand.

For a DIY disinfectant, Maker combines one cup of water with one cup of rubbing alcohol (optional: about 20 to 30 drops of lavender or tea tree essential oils to increase antibacterial properties). For window washing, a mix of equal parts vinegar and dish soap works as well as commercial glass cleaners. Not only does it remove dirt and grease, but it kills odors and doesn’t leave streaks.

5. Don’t forget your before and after pictures

Nothing like the idea of a good before-and-after comparison to push you to get results. Snapping a few clutter-filled shots will make it all the sweeter when you get to the final, sparkling end. Even better: Text the before shot to a friend or family member for added accountability.

Spring cleaning: it’s probably not a phrase that fills you with excitement, but what we’ve told you about spring cleaning tips during quarantine could actually improve the value of your property. Why not take the opportunity to give your home a mini-makeover and add to its value in the process while on quarantine!
