Breathe some life back into your home in time for Spring, with our ultimate Spring cleaning guide!  After a long winter in our homes, we can’t wait to be able to open up our windows and fill the house with the fresh spring air.  

Spring cleaning is all about tackling those cleaning jobs you’ve been putting off, from removing limescale from your kettle to polishing those wooden floors.

If you really want your home to shine, you need to put effort into your Spring cleaning schedule. However, you don’t need expensive products to clean your home, just common household ingredients like white vinegar and baking soda can be real lifesavers.

Cleaning your house from top to bottom can feel very overwhelming, which is why we’ve put together a list of Spring Cleaning tips and tricks to help you get through each area of your home.  

 1. Spring Clean Windows 

Spring arriving means longer days and lush views, so make sure you’ll be able to enjoy it by keeping your windows sparkling clean and free of any dust, dirt and fingerprints.

When it comes to cleaning your windows, wait until it’s a cool, cloudy day. This is to avoid soap and cleaning products drying on your windows, leaving you with frustrating smears. 

If you can’t wait until it’s cloudy, just wait until the sun isn’t shining directly on your windows.

Tackle your window glass with the Elbow Grease Glass cleaner, perfect for your home’s super shiny and streak-free windows. This spring cleaning essential is fortified with white vinegar for an effective cleaning treatment.

2. Microwave Grease Removal

Spring cleaning your microwave is always as task people put off doing. It’s a time-consuming task and because you don’t see inside the microwave, it’s easy to ignore. 

To get rid of the microwave grease - 

  1. Heat up a microwave-safe bowl of water, vinegar and lemon juice. 
  2. Leave this to steam inside your microwave to break down any stains and dried on food.
  3. Wipe down the surfaces of the microwave

Avoid using heavy-duty cleaners and bleach, as these can damage your appliance’s interior.

3. Washing Machine Spring Clean

Your washing machine won’t be able to effectively clean your clothes if it’s not clean itself. It’s best to keep on top of spring cleaning your washing machine, so you’re not left with any faults later down the line.

Washing machine drawers are damp areas that can grow mould. Start cleaning by removing all detachable elements and washing them in hot soapy water. If you’re having trouble getting into small areas, try scrubbing them with a toothbrush.

4. Freshen up Carpets with Baking Soda

Rugs are important to keep clean, especially with pets or kids in your house. Your carpet goes through a lot on a daily basis from muddy shoes, spills, crumbs and pet fur. 

A great way to get rid of pet fur is by applying baking soda, which helps to loosen fur from the fabric and deodorise it. Spread a light coating of baking soda over your rug and leave to sit for 10 minutes. Finish off with a thorough vacuuming of the rug.

Spring clean those rugs with the Astonish Fabric Refreshener with a lasting floral scent that neutralises trapped odours. 

5. Spring Clean Wooden Floors

Floors take the most wear and tear in our homes. All the dirt and debris we bring in from outside can damage and mark the floor. Allowing your wooden floors to get too dirty can permanently damage the wood itself, which is why it’s important to mop your floors at least once a month.

To clean your wooden floors, we recommend first checking the type of wooden floor you have, as some floor cleaners can bleach certain types of wood. 

A natural way to get shiny wooden floors is simply by mixing warm water with white vinegar; apply to floors using a mop to prevent any water damage. Vacuum floors before mopping to removing large bits of debris and dust particles. Always spot test in a corner of your floor first, as your cleaning solution may be too acidic for some wooden floors. 

The Stardrops Laminate Wood Floor Cleaner is a quick solution for spring cleaning your wooden floors and leaves it with a professional looking finish.

Bathrooms may be the smallest rooms in our house, but can be the most time consuming when it comes to spring cleaning. 

It’s important to keep our bathroom tiles clean, not only for hygiene purposes, but also to prevent any damage or wear over time.

11. Purify The Air 

After a long winter, it’s important to open up your windows and rid your home of all that stagnant air that’s been building up for months. 

When you’re spring cleaning your home, the last thing you want is for dust and dirt to still be lingering around in the air, especially if you suffer from allergies.
