It is really lovely to have a Spring fresh house clean form top to toe but oh it really can feel like such a chore can’t it.
Declutter first. There is no point cleaning stuff you don’t need or really want to keep so commit to a big declutter prior to a big cleaning session.
Be prepared:you need bin liners, cleaning sprays, cloths, a mop, vacuum cleaner, wipes and lot of energy (make sure you have eaten! ) It is so annoying to run out of any of these things part way through cleaning and it really pays to be prepared.
Enlist the family to help. You all live in your house and it is everybody’s responsibility to keep it clean. PLUS, if everyone is to clean up then EVERYONE becomes more mindful and careful about the mess they make!
Keep it simple and speedy is the way to go I think and so define your task for this particular cleaning session and set a timer for how long you want to take
