Eco-friendly cleaning expert,Barb de Corti, shares her top tips for a sparkling spring home!
Assign everyone a room or outdoor space. If you have teenagers, give them a few days warning. Anything left on the bedroom floor after three days will go to the rubbish or charity. That will get them motivated!
2. Kitchen Cupboards
Spring is a great time to remove all food items from the pantry, plus cutlery and crockery from the cupboards and give those hidden kitchen surfaces a good wipe down.
3. Beautiful Bedrooms
“At the start of each season, I strip the beds, turn the mattresses over, vacuum all surfaces and wash any mattress protectors and dust mite covers,” Barb de Corti says.
To leave the room with a fresh smell minus the nasty chemicals, mix up a spray bottle of water and about 20 drops of your favourite essential oils and spray towards the centre of the room.
4. Outdoor Blitz
Remove the cobwebs and dust off the outside of the house, especially around windows and hard to reach areas. Give your windows, glass doors, pool fences and deck a quick once over too.
Don’t forget to give the BBQ a wipe down either even if you haven’t used it!
