Give Your Home a Breath of Fresh Air

Give Your Home a Breath of Fresh Air

Spring is right around the corner and it’s time to give your home a brand new look. A lot of people would like to do this but it just seems way too expensive to be redecorating according to the seasons – before we know it, it will be fall, after all, and there is hardly any point of spending too much money on seasonal changes.

Getting ready for spring doesn’t have to cost too much, though, as long as you know what makes you tick. Here is a handful of ways to make your home just a bit fresher and more alive so that you can feel how the cold season is seeping out and away.

First: Get it clean

There’s a reason for all that spring cleaning that tends to happen when the sun pops back; our homes will be brighter and the evenings much shorter, so you won’t really have the opportunity to let the darkness cover up your clutter.

Deep cleaning your home will feel so great once it’s done, by the way, and you can watch how the sunlight comes in through your sparkling clean windows once again.

Scrub down your entire house, put on some loud music, and remember to clean out the kitchen properly as well. There is nothing worse than a dirty oven, after all, and a clean house will give you the opportunity to live it in and make it dirty again eventually.

Another great tip is to get all of those yearly maintenance tasks over with before summer sets in and you hardly have time for any of this. Clean out your refrigerator coils, replace any filters, and get started on the garden as well – it will feel great when you’re done.

Get some flowers in

Keeping a neat and clean home is one thing, though, but there are many other ways to make it feel a bit more like spring.

Start by inviting in a few tulips as soon as their back in season, change out your curtains for some lightweight and flowy ones, and bring in another mirror or two so that the extra sunlight can bounce through each corner of your house. It might not sound like much immediately, but the difference it will make to your home is immense.

Keep in mind that the other decoration you have can be inspired by nature as well without having to involve actual flowers. That way, you won’t have to watch them fade away and die after a couple of weeks and can enjoy their eternal liveliness instead.

Check out these Hawaiian seat covers, for example, and your home will immediately feel a lot fresher and a bit more fun. Try to go for other colours in green and bright yellow or even pink to make it pop a bit.

Now all you need to do is prepare your wardrobe for the change of season and you should be ready to embrace spring with all of its charm. Luckily, the warm weather will stay for a while so you won’t have to worry about making it cosy again for winter any time soon.

Spring cleaning is a must if a person likes to live in a nice environment. Many people like to do home cleaning, and really get into the job. Making house cleaning easier is something most anyone would like to know.

One way to go about this is to have a cleaning company help you – it is the most expensive way and the one that will save you the most time. But doing it yourself will mean less expenses. All you need is the right cleaning tools, and products. With the right cleaning agents a deep cleaning can be achieved. A person can purchase cheap cleaners at stores that sell discount products.

Get Help

When doing a really deep cleaning of a home one should have a helper. This will make moving things around to really get to the hard to reach places easier. When the good weather comes spring cleaning can be a bit fun if it is done right. Ask your spouse, or a friend, or even your kids to come around and help you a bit in your struggles with the spring cleaning. With more people on the job, the whole process will go down much quicker and way easier.

Cleaner for the Right Kind of Clean

A good house cleaning with proper cleaners often gets the best results. Some things may need bleached, and other things may need sanitized. The kitchen, and bathroom are often the worst areas for dirt. These are also areas that should be kept the cleanest. When doing floors it is recommended to give the floor a rinse with just water and a mop. This will remove all possible toxic cleaning agents which are not good to get on ones skin.

Protect Your Hands and Health

Showers, sinks, and toilet areas are places no one like to clean. Get a good pair of water proof gloves, and really get in and scrub these areas. Make sure that toilet area cleaning products are not used in areas where food preparation is done. Use green cleaners so that you do not introduce a lot of toxins in your home – that will make for a much healthier living.

Make it Fun

Last, try to make the process of cleaning a fun thing. With friends, or by oneself, this can still be accomplished. Try drinking some coffee, and listening to music while cleaning the home. By having a lively atmosphere cleaning doesn’t seems so bad.

Making things fun will make things easier, and this applies in this scenario as well. Doing this part of your chores should not be a tedious task, especially since you are doing it for a better way of live. Have fun with your cleaning and enjoy the results.

How to make your house appear cleaner than it is. Tips in Action:

How to make your house appear cleaner than it is. Tips in Action:

TipsfromTia.com Lemons in White Bowl

Tis’ the season for unexpected guest, and not that we mind unannounced visits; not everyone has time to keep the house sparkling 24/7. Here’s a tip that will help your house appear cleaner than it really is.

Our senses work amazing together and they can also fool other senses at the same time. This is a fact, that’s why you’ve heard the saying “believe none of what you hear and only half of what you see”.

Keep an already, sliced lemon wrapped in plastic in the refrigerator or lemon juice on hand this season. Lemons are the scent of clean to most people.

When a guest arrives put a lemon slice down the garbage disposal and let run for a few seconds. That will send a burst of lemon scent throughout the kitchen. Squirt some lemon juice in the bathroom sink to freshen the water closet and if you need some extra kick from the lemon, put the rhines in a cup of hot water and walk the steam around the house.

The power of lemons will make your guest senses think you just cleaned.
