Williston Bachelor’s Ultimate Spring Cleaning Guide
Spring is officially here. For me, it's good and bad. I love spring weather! Things are warming up, and summer is just around the corner. That said, I am not a fan of spring either. It means I have to clean the house. This winter has been extremely long...and I have a lot to clean. I am not a slob, but I still have a lot to do. Throw in the fact that I am a bachelor, and you know I have even more to do! Guys, if you are in the mood to get things whipped into shape at your place too, here are a few things to get the ball rolling.
Make a playlist or download an audiobook or podcast to listen to while you do your chores. This is the best advice I can give since I work at a radio station.
Set aside a day or two to get everything done. It may appear daunting at first, but having a deadline will make you less likely to procrastinate. It works for me anyway.
Purchase/restock all of your cleaning supplies ahead of time to avoid running out in the middle of a task.
Call ahead for a furniture/clothing donation service to pick up any items you intend to donate so that you can get things out of your house on the day that works best for you. Williston is limited to drop-off locations, so you might have to bring things to the donation service or location of your choice.
It's easy to take on the windows, floors, and walls, but we tend to overlook some things, fellas. Have you gone through your closet? Do you have holes in your socks, t-shirts, and underwear? Time to throw them! Do you have clothes that you do not wear, or might be a bit snug? It's time to donate them.
The bathroom is always a bright spot to clean. You go through and clean the basics. Have you checked your grooming products? You might find some old stuff that you need to get rid of. If you have toothpaste, hair products, and shaving cream that's coming on 2 years old, it has to go.
Have you thought about your bed? Sure you wash the sheets. Do you actually clean your bed? You spend a lot on your bed. You know it's comfortable...but is it clean? Here is a basic plan to freshen up the mattress.
- Spot clean stains with a non-toxic natural cleaner.
- Pour a light layer of baking soda over the mattress, this will help absorb any remaining liquid and leave your mattress fresh. Leave it on for a few hours and vacuum the surface to remove it.
- Let it breathe! Since it's spring, this is the perfect opportunity to open up the windows or doors and let your mattress take in the fresh air. This will help naturally remove bacteria.
Good luck with your spring cleaning! Hopefully, these suggestions will help you clean things up a bit more around your place.
