Make spring cleaning easier!

Make spring cleaning easier!

When it comes to spring cleaning the most challenging bit can deciding be which cleaning products to use for which task.

The selection of products in the supermarket is endless, each addressing one particular room or function. And then there’s the question of how you will cart this plethora of products from room to room?

“If the idea of cleaning your home isn’t painful enough, you’re then faced with endless decisions of products and functions and fragrances. It’s enough to drive you mad,” says Sarah Webb from cleaning brand Chemico. “Spring cleaning, for most, is not something you look to; but it is something we can all agree is necessary.”

As with any mission, spring cleaning needs a strategic approach and Webb offers the following 5 tips on how we can make it a little easier:

  1. Break up the load – it does not all have to be done in 1 day. Space it out over a few days, sometimes even a week, this way you can give each room the attention it needs, and also give yourself time to recover in between.
  2. Start at the top and move your way down. Clean the walls, the windows and sometimes even the roof before you move onto the floors. Your floors should be the last item on your list. This way any dust, dirt or water spilled onto the floor will be cleaned up only once.
  3. Find a product that has more than one use this way you don’t have to make too many trips back and forth. Chemico Paste Cleen is a multi-purpose product that can tackle many cleaning tasks – from your burned pots and pans, to your braai, your stove, the bath, and even the rims on a car.  Chemico Paste Cleen gives you the opportunity to use one product for a multitude of jobs.
  4. Clear it out. We all have that one drawer in the kitchen where clutter goes to hide; this is the time to throw away anything and everything you don’t need or use anymore. Not only will your home be clean and sparkling, but it will also be clutter free.
  5. Don’t cut corners. It is very easy to stop cleaning as thoroughly towards the end of the day when you are tired. This will only lead to more dust and dirt piling up in those areas you have neglected, doubling your work the next time you spring clean, and also creating a health hazard.
