Spring Clean your home with our handy checklist

Sometimes you look around and feel your home needs a good old Spring clean, but you don’t know where to start.

With Autumn coming to an end and Winter approaching fast, why not make “Spring cleaning” something to do at the end of every season. Here’s ten things you might want to consider doing, to Spring clean your house, carpets and upholstery.

First, get a little green by turning your old clothes, t-shirts, etc, into cleaning rags.
There’s no point buying disposable wipes or cloths, when you’ve probably got at least a couple of old shirts hanging around that you’re never really going to wear again. Simply tear them up into rag-sized-bits, and you’re good to go. Be careful not to use brightly coloured clothes as they may have dyes that run, which won’t really help with your cleaning mission! You don’t want to end up leaving a stain on the carpet you have just cleaned.

Clean your appliances, and run vinegar through your washing machine, dishwasher and kettle.
Now is the perfect opportunity to make time to do a little maintenance on your home appliances, by running a splash of white vinegar through your Washing Machine, Dishwasher and Kettle. First, run your Washing Machine with water only, plus two cups of white vinegar, then do the same for your Dishwasher but with one cup of vinegar, and fill your kettle to boil with one cup of white vinegar also. Running the vinegar through the appliance will clean it internally, remove any odours or mould, and generally just give it a new lease on life.

Give your fridge some attention.
Do you know that food poisoning most commonly occurs in the home? Avoid accidentally making yourself sick, by giving your fridge a thorough clean. Take all the contents out, throw away anything that’s been hanging around past its use by date, and disinfect and thoroughly wipe down all of the inside. Don’t forget the doors and drawers, to make sure no hidden germs are left lurking undetected.

Move spare furniture to storage, or better still, give what you don’t use away to charity.
Sometimes you can love pieces of furniture, but realise they have no place in your current home. Perhaps you’ve got relatives riding out isolation with you and limited space, or they simply don’t suit your décor. Either way there are times when you need to make the difficult decision to store some of your belongings. When you do so, make sure you know how to store them correctly. Anything you really don’t use, might be nice to donate to your local charity centre, particularly considering the tough times we are all going through.

Clean your carpets and upholstery.
You can probably do a pretty good job yourself of giving your carpets and  upholstery a rudimentary clean, but sometimes it pays to call in the professionals and have a thorough deep carpet clean done. When you call upon Drytron, the carpet cleaning professionals, to come and take care of your carpets and upholstery cleaning, you know that you’ll be coming back to a clean, fresh home with carpet that’s ready to walk on in just a matter of hours.
