5 Important Places to Spring Clean
Once a year, spring rolls around and our dreams become filled with Easter eggs, blooming flowers, and ... spring cleaning? Yes, most of us know about spring cleaning, but how many of us take the time to do it? It's more than dusted ceiling fans, washed sheets, and folded laundry; it's a thorough cleaning of the places you don't frequent as often. Want to feel like a million bucks? Check off these next five spaces in your apartment home during this year’s annual spring clean.
We open our fridges many times a day. We throw away expired foods as we smell them, but how many times do you take the time to clean the shelves and drawers in the fridge? In the process, you’ll find that age-old applesauce you wished you remembered when you wanted a late-night snack.
2. Food Pantry
Listen, I just threw out a can of tomato sauce from 2016. How did this even make it that far? I promise my pantry isn’t that bad, but you’d be surprised how much expired food is taking up space on your shelves. What about those stale Wheat Thins? This is also a good time to set aside unexpired food that you don’t plan on eating for your local food bank.
3. Laundry Room
The laundry room: where your single socks go to live at the bottom of the laundry basket waiting to get asked to dance. Or maybe it’s become your junk/laundry room and it’s overwhelming to be in it. Don’t be that person; give your laundry room the TLC it needs, will ya?
4. Clothes Closet(s)
Going through you and your family’s closets takes time, and it’s something that can easily get out of control. We all have those jeans we’re saving with high hopes of one day fitting back into. If those high hopes have been keeping those jeans hostage for over a year, is it worth it? Face it, there’s someone out there who could use those jeans more than you. So take the time on your next day off to give your closet more breathing room. Start with a little guidance and read these simple steps on achieving this here.
5. Pet beds
We love our pets; we give them kisses, cuddles, and sometimes baths. But how often do you clean or replace the places they lay down for a cute sleeping sesh? Oh, pet lovers know these places can get super stinky! Don’t want to wash their bed in your appliances at home? Take it to a local laundry mat and pay a few dollars to get it done there.
All joking aside, these places should be remembered more than once a year. So let’s not treat these areas only for the spring cleaning season. Try to make it a priority to start this spring and do it as often as you see that it needs your attention. You'll enjoy your Camden apartment home year-round, and so will your guests and pets.
