Also, before we begin, make sure to check out Busy Bee Cleaning Service’s spring cleaning tips for you! They have super helpful advice that I’ll mention at the end but check out this link for more tips. Now let’s get starteddd.


 

  • Fold and stack vertically, not horizontally.ย 

I don’t know about you but I’ve always been taught to fold things horizontally. Now that I think of this hack, not only does it save space but it makes it easier to detect which clothes are which rather than scrummaging and basically turning your horizontal stack into a huge mess. And ain’t nobody got time to fix that mess so…๐Ÿ˜‚

  • Use Coke to clean your toilet.

This sounds super gross but toilet water needs to be clean at some point. Usually we just use Lysol but apparently, you can use Coke too. They’re much cheaper and hey, we’ve all been Mr.Krabs at some point so this can be pretty handy if you run out or if you just want to save some cash.ย ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • Clean Blinds Using A Sock & Vinegar

Mix equal measurements of vinegar and water in a bowl and dip a sock into it. Then, just wipe your dusty blinds and they’ll be good as new.

  • Clean Hairbrushes With Your Finger

I’ve seen a bunch of hairbrushย cleaning hacks out there using vinegar and scissors and all that jazz but then I realized that maybe people haven’t heard of the one that I use. I have really thick hair so I continuously need to clean my comb and the way I do it is pinching from the centre of my hairbrush and twirling my finger. The hair surrounding just catches on and you end up with a ball of hair that you just throw out.

 

 

  • Timer and Clown Songย 

Okay, maybe I’m just being really weird but setting a timer and those circus songs actually speed your cleaning a ton. ๐Ÿ˜‚ย Whenever I put regular music, I end up cleaning at that specific pace and trust me, Celine Dion takes quite a while.๐Ÿ˜‚ This hack may seem ridiculous but it works.

  • Spice Rack for Stationary

Now I don’t know about you but I always have the randomestย things lying around in my room. From rainbow loom bands from 4th grade to beads to kinder egg toys (I have siblings, okay? Kinder eggs are totally for kids.ย ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜‚), you can probably tell I need this hack. And you probably do too. Just purchase a spice rack and get sorting.

  • Charger Storage

I’m definitely one to lose chargers constantly so having them all in one place is super handy. All you need to do is use an old shoe box, cut a few slits on the front side and one on the side for the outlet strip, place an outlet strip in the shoe box and ta-da.ย ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Okay maybe this is a multi-step process but it only takes a few minutes plus you can paint it a Spring colour and it can work as decor as well. I’ll update you on how it works out with me in my upcoming Monthly Wrapper.

  • Colour Code

You’ve probably heard of this hack before but colour coding your closet helps a ton when choosing out your outfit and returning it to the rack. We’re all guilty of shoving all our clothes in the closet but with this trick, it’ll make your closet look appealing and you’ll just have to save your laziness for another day because of the OCD. ๐Ÿ˜‚ย It’ll also help with shopping when you realize that you have too much black in your closet and you need to start trying out different colours. #guilty.ย ๐Ÿ˜‚

BBC Cleaning Tip: Motivate and Delegate

“Sitting down with each family member and discussing a reward for completing spring cleaning tasks is your first step. The best way to motivate your family is to find out something each person really wants and then agree to it as a reward for completing spring cleaning. Does your son want the latest kill-โ€™em-all video game? OK, he can have it when he finishes his chores. Does your daughter want a shopping spree at her favorite clothing store? Same thing. And your hubby can have his shopping spree at the hardware store or tickets to the ballgame once he finishes his list, too.”ย Read More

PREACH

Aah I completely agree with this and am currently making a point system for my siblings too! They literally cleaned their rooms and the living room in an instant to get that toy they wanted. Plus, if this is for you, you can make your room organized AND get a prize for it. Subway for me please. ๐Ÿ˜‚


 

Anddd there you have it. Don’t forget to check out Mia’s post to this collab.ย (I’m watching youย ๐Ÿ˜‚) I mentioned a few more tips in myย How To Clean Your Room ASAPย back in November AND the extra help fromย BBCleaningService so you have no excuses to procrastinate on Spring cleaning. If a potato can do it, then so can you. Chop chop!ย ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ย I’ll see you all in my next post (which *spoiler* may or may not be another collab with Mia) Happy torture cleaning!ย ๐Ÿ˜‚

      Thank you! I love that one too – super handy. That’s a very good thing, you need to spread some of your admiration of cleaning to me because I literally have no motivation. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Thanks for reading.

    I clean my room when I’m mad-somehow it’s soothing, idk. Of course my two roommates (hey, younger sisters!) promptly make it look like a war zone, but I cleaned it, my job is done. Yasss, music helps! I’ve never tried circus music, I usually turn on Weird Al parodies or Kaleo, but I should try it. Girrrrl, Kinder Eggs may be for children, but the chocolate is so good, so don’t pass them up. Haha, how many siblings do you have? Your house sounds like it’s really full, haha.
    Gret posy! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Wow I can literally imagine you slamming drawers and sweeping aggressively ๐Ÿ˜‚(not exactly you but you know what I mean) IKRRRR my siblings constantly corrupt all my hard work and make it look like a jungle. I have 4 siblings. But the two younger ones are the main issue. I’m the middle child so the older two just go about with their business. IKRRRRRR I LOVE KINDER CHOCOLATE…i mean…erm…yes, I agree to some extent. ๐Ÿ˜‚Great commeny.

        Haha, you must be psychic, that’s literally what I do. WAIT WHAT, SERIOUSLY?? I feel like we are so similar it’s almost creepy. I have two older siblings tooooo! (I have 3 younger ones, but one of them is adopted and is only a few months younger than I am, so it’s sorta like we’re twins) Middle children foreverrrr! Haha, I sometimes worry I’m insanely immature when I find myself laughing at the jokes in the TV shows my younger siblings watch. XD Fabulus relpy! XD

        ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Yes! Omggg yasss gurl me you and the adopted one are triplets. Except I’m older *hairflip* jk jk it’s not much of a difference. Is the twin a girl or boy? OMG IKR SAMEEE today I was watching Nicky, Ricky, Dicky and Dawn with my sister (please don’t ask why they named him dicky- idk either ๐Ÿ˜‚) and this scene was so funny. Technically teens can still watch it but idk. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Really? Fabulus reply? What do I reply to that? Fantasic reply to my reply. ๐Ÿ˜‚

        Haha, yaaaaassss! It’s a girl, but she has some delays, so she’s more like a 6 or 7 yo, but we still have fun together. Noooo, it doesn’t make a difference, come hang out with me twinsie!! Haha, children’s shows never get old, I will probably still be binge watching them when I’m 80.

      Ooh the colours would be much more vibrant with the new season – I wish I can keep up the organising. Ughh ikr it’s super frustrating. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Sometimes I feel like combing is bad because of all the hair it’s pulled out. But those are probably just the tangles.

    I’ve probably tried the colour coding one but I haven’t for it in a hot minute /century, my wardrobe is ridiculous packed and unorganised and half the time my clothes start slipping off the hangers because the hangers are too short in width and doesn’t match the clothes size so I kinda have been giving up on that, my room overall Is full of random things from my violin stand to my bean bag, nothing Is organised ๐Ÿ˜…
