Is it time for a spring clean?

Winter has almost gone, says I as I’m scraping the ice off the car again this morning!


Of course by lunchtime that frost has cleared and the clear sky means a lovely early spring sunshine emerges.

 

That spring sunshine however has the less than desired effect of bouncing off all those surfaces covered with a layer of dust, and the cobwebs which have kept the spiders in food all winter.

So now is the official time for a spring clean, well in my house anyway!


It’s a great opportunity to have a good old sort out and a rearrange whilst I’m at it.

What I tend to do is to take a room at a time, I take all my ornaments and bits out to give them a good clean and polish. I pull all the furniture into the centre of the room to give behind and underneath a good vacuum, I then tackle all those corners where the cobwebs have been un-disturbed all winter. Picture frames, top of doors, switches and sockets get a wipe and polish. Then finally all the furniture gets pushed back.

When it comes to bringing all the ornamental bits back in, I like to have a good rearrange and swap a few bits over to introduce lighter, brighter spring colours. Another great excuse for a bit of retail therapy.


A vase of fresh flowers and voila! onto the next room.


Do other people have a good spring clean at this time of year?

Do you do anything special to prepare your house for summer?

I’d love to hear from you

  1. That all looks immaculate to me but it’s funny you have posted on this today when I have written a post on a book about cleaning :):) great minds think alike 🙂

  2. Your living room looks beautiful and so inviting, makes me want to come round for a cup of tea haha 🙂 I need to give the house a good spring clean when I am feeling up to it, might go with your one room at a time method. I want lots of flowers in my house this year, hopefully nearly all of them from the allotment too.
