How to Spring Clean Your Home

In Part 1 of our Spring Cleaning Blog Series, we gave you our top tips to tidy your bedroom. If you missed it, click HERE to read it right on our blog.

In Part 2 of our Spring Cleaning Blog Series, let’s tackle the rest of the house!

First thing’s first, it’s a big job, and it will take several hours. Block off a Saturday or Sunday in your Spring calendar to get it done. Also, it’s certainly not a one person job! So get the family, kids, and some good friends involved, put on some upbeat music to make it more bearable and even fun, have snacks handy, and let each person tackle a room or general task. Once you’re done you can all celebrate with dinner out!

Kitchen

Here’s a methodical way to do this important part of the house:

  • Clean under and around all countertops and cooking areas.
  • Clean out and dust in cabinets and drawers.
  • Go through the pantry, refrigerator and freezer for foods that are past their expiration dates, and throw them away. For unopened canned and jarred foods that are still good, but you know you won't eat, donate them.
  • Tackle the fridge and clean it out! Remove everything inside, including the plastic bins and dividers and wash & wipe it all down.

Helpful Tip: And if you’re looking for an all-natural Made in USA cleaning brand to try out, check out the Meliora line from Chicago. We've been loving their All Purpose Home Cleaner. It works very well, and with a coconut oil base, this all natural cleaner is safe to use. (also available on Amazon


Dusting

The winter blues will be gone and so will the dust! Follow these steps:

  • Take everything off shelves, tabletops and dressers, and give the whole house a good wipe down, including the blinds and windows.
  • Now is also the time to get to all the places you've been neglecting throughout the year, including electronics, ceiling fans, storage cabinets, baseboards and doorways.
  • Be sure to wear a face mask and even eye goggles and a hat, to keep any dust particles away from you.


Floors

You can do this task room by room, floor by floor, or at the very end: 

  • Sweep or vacuum them thoroughly first, to pick up any loose debris.
  • Mop them with an all-natural cleaner to make them look shiny and new without toxic chemicals. If you have carpeting, you may want to invest in a steam cleaning machine, or hire a professional to come out and do it.
  • Be sure to leave time for the area to air dry thoroughly before anyone enters!

 

Bathroom

With lots of nooks and crannies to clean in this part of the house, you might want to tackle it as a team of two.

  • Go through the linen closet, and dispose of old, shredded, and worn items.
  • Organize all drawers and dispose of old cosmetics and expired products.
  • Use clear plastic boxes and dividers to neatly and easily separate and store items.
  • Give the tub and sink a solid scrub down with an all-natural Made in USA cleaner.
  • Dust and clean around all of the decor and items sitting on the countertop.

 

 

Helpful Tip: Want to save money on your hand soap and get that lovely foaming lather? Use a foaming soap dispenser filled with a mix of Dr. Bronner’s and distilled water. You get an all-natural lathering soap with a great scent for much less than buying it at the store. The best part is that you can refill this endlessly, reducing your cleaning bills!

 

Living Room

This room is a sanctuary for rest and relaxation. So make it one!

  • Cut down on the clutter & dust created by all of the paper sitting around. Eliminate the piles one by one.
  • When finished with your magazines, donate them to a library or hospital. Recycle old newspapers.
  • Create a new book or flower arrangement for the cocktail table to change it up for Spring. You can even rearrange the chairs or side tables to refresh the look.
  • And if you’re looking to spruce up a room in your home, consider adding greenery. Houseplants help freshen and filter the air in your home, and they make a great statement piece too. Your local plant nursery can suggest a variety of plant species that are easy to care for and maintain, while also adding a lovely pop of color to your home.

Blankets

I have an Airbnb attached to my home. I purchased the blankets to give my guests a first class accommodation. The blankets have such a great feel to them. I love them. So far I've received great reviews! Thanks

Best Blanket Ever!

I absolutely love the Queen size cotton blanket in the winter, in the summer and in between! So does my husband. It’s the perfect weight. Best blanket I’ve ever owned and I’ve given two as gifts and received rave reviews. You might think it’s expensive until you sleep under it and then you’ll realize a perfect nights sleep is invaluable!

Too many snags!

I purchased a king size blanket 1 year ago. I love the look, texture and weight of the blanket. However, this blanket snags incredibly easily. It gets caught on everything and if you have kids and pets it's even worse. I still use the blanket because its comfortable but it looks horrible. I could take time to work some snags away but it would take hours which I don't have nor want to spend. A few of the strings have broken and I've had to tie them off to prevent more detoriation. Hopefully the design can be improved upon to make it worth the investment for others.

Hi there,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for our Heritage Blankets. We're sorry to hear that your experience with our product hasn't been completely positive due to the issue with snags. We understand how frustrating this can be, especially with kids and pets around. We value your feedback and would love to touch base with you to see how we can make this right. Our goal is to provide high-quality products that our customers can enjoy for years to come, and we're always looking for ways to improve. Please reach out to our customer service team and we'll do our best to assist you. Thank you for your support and we hope to hear from you soon.

Love the classic look and the fit - plenty of blanket to go around. Very glad to own seed to stitch made in the USA product!

Heritage Blanket

I was thrilled to find a product made in the US and made from fabric grown and produced in the US. I love everything about the blanket, the soft pink color and the weight and feel of the cotton. It’s a very soothing and comforting product.
