Spring Cleaning Tips – 2024 

Spring Cleaning tips 2024

As the vibrant colours of spring start to bloom outside our windows, it’s that time of year again – spring cleaning season! 

Spring cleaning isn’t just about dusting off cobwebs and decluttering closets; it’s essential for maintaining a healthy and organised living environment for the rest of the year. 

The team at UK Cleaning Supplies has put together some of our best spring cleaning tips to equip you for an efficient spring clean in 2024. 

Declutter first

Decluttering is a crucial first step before deep cleaning your space. Start by going through each room and getting rid of items you no longer need or use. Focus on keeping only what adds value to your life, and if you don’t need an item, consider donating or throwing it away. Use storage solutions like bins and shelves to keep your essentials tidy. 

Tips for decluttering rooms in your home: 

Kitchen: Clear off countertops by storing away kitchen appliances and utensils. Also, get rid of expired food and kitchen gadgets you never use. 

Living Room: Assess if any pieces of furniture are taking up unnecessary space and consider selling them. Also, organise any clutter in the room, such as your entertainment storage, tidy cables and minimise decor. 

Bedroom: Declutter your wardrobe, clear your nightstand, make the bed daily, and limit decorative pillows and throws. 

Bathroom: Remove unused or expired toiletries, clean countertops of unnecessary items such as hair tools and use drawer organisers to keep items like makeup and hair accessories tidy. 

Hallway: Clear clutter in the hallway by installing hooks to hand your coats, install a shoe rack, and ensure your hallway floor is clear.

Spring Cleaning your bathroom

The bathroom is often a sanctuary for relaxation but can accumulate grime and germs over time. Aswell as cleaning countertops, mirrors and cleaning the floor with a mop. Here’s how we recommend you clean your bathroom

  1. Clean and disinfect your toilet: Use a toilet brush and toilet cleaner or bleach to thoroughly clean the inside of your toilet bowl. Also, remember to wipe down the seat, lid, and outside of the toilet with disinfectant.
  2. Scrub the bathtub and shower: Use a scrub brush to remove soap scum and grime from the bathtub, tile grout and shower walls. Don’t forget the showerhead, either. 
  3. Replace towels and shower curtains: Swap out dirty towels and wash or replace shower curtains to keep your bathroom looking fresh.

Spring Cleaning your Kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of the home, and often, the room gets the most overcrowded with clutter. So, as well as cleaning your cabinets, countertops and mopping the floor, we also recommend you do the following: 

  1. Clean your kitchen appliances, including the oven, washing machine, fridge , kettle and other stainless steel appliances, using a non-abrasive sponge and soaking them in warm, soapy water before using tailored cleaners. 
  2. Clean the sink: Use a disinfectant cleaner and a sponge to remove food residue and bacteria. 
  3. Use a degreasing solution to clean the exhaust fan and vent covers above the stove, and remove and wash any removable filters.

Spring cleaning your bedroom and living room

Your living spaces, such as your bedroom and living room, serve as your haven and sanctuaries for rest, so creating a calm, clean environment is essential. After decluttering, we recommend you clean these rooms by: 

  1. Dust and polish furniture: use an all-purpose cleaner and a cloth to clean your nightstand, drawers, and shelves
  2. Hoover or sweep the floor: Remove dust from the floor by hoovering
  3. Clean windows and mirrors: using a glass cleaner and cloth, clean all glass surfaces in the bedroom
