Spring cleaning may not be the most exciting thing that happens this time of year. Fortunately, there are easy ways for you to put a positive spin on the dreaded event so you can not only get your home in perfect condition, but have a great time cleaning!
Prepare to Conquer
Nothing provides more of a setback than not having the right equipment. Although this may not be the most exciting aspect of spring cleaning, making a list of what you’ll need for each specific project will help avoid multiple trips to the store. If you do want to add a positive aspect to your preparation then consider investing in some cool tools. If you’d work better knowing you have the most advanced vacuum cleaner or the most stylish duster, then why not use something you’ll appreciate to make the process more enjoyable?
Use Music as Motivation
Music is a great tool to get you pumped up and ready to clean! Make a playlist of your favorite songs and put it on shuffle so you’ll be looking forward to the next song. If you enjoy dancing or are cleaning with your family, try adding in some fun dance songs to provide a much-needed break from cleaning every now and then. In addition to adding some positivity to what could be a long and dull process, you can get in a little extra workout from dancing and on-beat cleaning that you may not even realize you’re doing!
Incorporate Unique Experiments
One way to make spring cleaning more intriguing for your children is adding some fun experiments to the mix. Cleaning comes down to a science, so including your children can provide a great learning experience. Some things you can try include making various concoctions that will clear your drain or using a blacklight to spot the dust and dirt that has built up in a room. You can also search online to find some more ideas that will not only benefit the cleanliness of your home, but will teach your children a thing or two about science in the process!
Add Some Family Fun
You can tackle larger cleaning items with the help of your family! For example, cleaning your decor can be much easier when you have a dedicated person working on each type of blind and shade. You can get more work done in a shorter period of time and you can have some fun working alongside your spouse, friend or child. In addition, you can consider adding incentives to motivate. Have a timer to see who can get the most done within an hour or see who is the best at dusting cabinets and reward the winner (and everyone else) with a sweet dessert!
Improve Your Home and Your Body
Did you know that only 30 minutes of general cleaning can burn around 130 calories? Everything from dusting to vacuuming can make a difference in your calorie count. This information also makes for great motivation to get the job done! Whether you’d rather break up your cleaning projects over a few days so you can have a week-long workout plan or if you’re feeling strong and want to get it all done in one day, you can be assured that you will be able to notice a difference in your home and your fitness level by taking on this intense project!
Improving your spring cleaning strategies can be as easy as changing your mindset! Whether it’s gathering your family, listening to some upbeat tunes or being prepared, you can following all or some of these fun ideas to make spring cleaning more enjoyable and productive.
