Everyday Inspirations

Sponge Spring Cleaning
Ahhh spring, the time of renewal. Flowers blooming, new little ducklings, and ridding your house of the old and dirty. It is definitely spring cleaning time in my house. Here are some tips for getting your house in shape.

If you haven't looked at it in a year, get rid of it. Unless it is a family heirloom or something of significant sentiment, it's time to say goodbye, whether that means tossing it in the trash or giving it to charity. Keep track of charitable contributions by the item and deduct them from next year's taxes. After a year you may have some pretty good deductions.

Have some Clorox wipes handy. My husband and I love these all too much as they are easy to whip out of the container to wash stuff and very effective. While you're spring cleaning you will definitely want to deep clean stuff, but Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes are great to get the job done fast and efficiently.

Make a to do list and make assignments. Anyone that knows my knows how much I love lists but this truly is the best way to stay on track and keep tabs on what needs to be done. This can also help you make assignments if you're splitting jobs by day or by certain people.

Give yourself an incentive. Decide how you will reward yourself beforehand to really help motivate you. Have a fabulous night at your favorite restaurant. Buy yourself that gorgeous table you've been wanting (that will now look even better in your clean home). Throw a party. Whatever will motivate you to get your butt in gear.

Happy cleaning!
