The time is ripe for a spring cleaning!
When in the spring When the sun shines through the windows into the apartment, it too becomes visible: the dirt on the windows. When was the last time you cleaned them? At least now it is clear: It is high time for the spring cleaning - especially if it has been so short last year or even postponed. Cleaning, mucking out, making room: that's the motto of the spring cleaning. So roll up your sleeves and off you go.
Preparation is everything: intended for cleaning supplies, schedule and meals?
The monster spring cleaning can also be fun: a little preparation can make the project easier. A complete spring cleaning can last for several hours, if not days. Therefore, plenty of time should be scheduled for the cleaning action. Should the whole family get involved? Then a weekend is suitable. Do not forget task allocation. If everyone knows what he has to do, he can go to work with full vigor. Important is old clothes. The latest fashion fad should not be destroyed with dust and co. Comfort is here before appearance! Also, the clothes should fit snugly, because wide clothes have a high risk of accidents. Are all cleaning products available? Are there enough garbage bags in the house? Also the favorite music should not be missing. With the right rhythm, cleaning is much more fun. But with all the drudgery should also be thought of breaks. Food is important here: snacks and sweets are more likely when the stove is still put out of action by the cleaning agent. Sufficient drinks should also be available and the sparkling wine for the reward after work already cooled.

Systematic cleaning: even mucking out to be learned
If the day has come, systematic action should be taken. It is best to clean the apartment in a clockwise direction. One room follows the other. Also important are the cleaning sequences & quot; from top to bottom & ldquo; and & quot; back to front & ldquo ;. Nothing makes less sense than first cleaning the carpet and then spreading dust over it to spread new dirt on it. So first dust, then suck, sweep or wipe! Scented candles, fragrance lamps or essential oils help against the smell of cleaning. Open windows when cleaning the windows, let the fresh spring air into the apartment. Attention: Sunshine can cause streaks as the minerals in the sun-evaporated water remain on the disk!
When mucking out, everyone should critically ask if the item is really needed. What does not own a place in the apartment, usually has no meaning and is only pushed back and forth. Away with it. When was the last time you had this player in your hand? How happy is he? Is he still at the cutting edge of technology? Newspapers are part of the old paper, broken items definitely in the trash. Only what lovers value, may stay. Anyone who is unsure, can create a Ausmistkiste. What is still in the next spring cleaning is really no use. For clothes: What has not been worn for more than a year, can be thrown away confidently. Then the likelihood is very high that skirt, pants or sweaters will only catch moths in the next twelve months. Speaking of moths: do not forget to renew the mothballs in the wardrobe!

On solid textiles or surfaces help blotter and the iron: Put the paper on the stain and use the iron over it. Due to the heat, the paper absorbs the wax. Alternatively, these tips also work with paper towels or undyed napkins. The silver cutlery can also be cleaned with salt: spoon, fork & Co in a bowl of hot salt water, add some Schnitzel aluminum foil and after a short time disappears the typical black discoloration. Toothpaste is also ideal for cleaning silver.
Spring cleaning for cars, garages & co
If you want to do the spring cleaning properly, you should not stop at the door! Also staircase, cellar or balcony belong to it.

And once you're there - even in the garage you'll find old things that have long been mucked out!
