3 Spring Cleaning Tips to Brighten Your Home

Mark your calendars. Sunday, March 20th is officially the first day of spring. For most of us, spring is the perfect time of year for renewal and growth. It’s also the time that we feel the most compelled to clean up our homes. If you who haven’t already dived head first into a vigorous spring cleaning ritual, here are 3 spring cleaning tips to brighten your home.

1.) Bring the outside in: Studies show that tasks performed while under the calming influence of nature are performed better and with greater accuracy, yielding a higher quality result. Keeping ornamental plants in the home increases memory retention and concentration, and research consistently links indoor flowers and plants with well-being. Add some fresh flowers or easy to care for plants to your home interior to bring the outdoors in while contributing fresh oxygen to your home.

2.) Greet the sun: Phoenix natives know that springtime in Arizona is notoriously short. Now is an ideal time to enjoy the Arizona sunshine before it gets too hot by windows inside and out. This will let in sunshine and make your home feel lighter and brighter. Also, rid your windowsills of ratty curtains or knickknacks that block your newly cleaned windows. Who knows, you might discover a beautiful view you didn’t realize you had!

3.) Goodbye, winter gear: No one can ever accuse Arizona natives of harboring heavy winter coats and snow boots. But we do tend to collect sweaters, boots, and heavy throws when the temperatures drop to a modest lower temperature. Now is the time to purge and say goodbye to your winter gear. First cleaning and then storing clothes and blankets in smart places like large containers that slide under your bed or vacuum sealed bags neatly stored at the back of your closet assure those warm threads will be ready to go when the cooler temps return.
