Spring Cleaning? Do This First.

Tips for spring cleaning in Atlanta, GASpring is such a beautiful time of year; time for new and fresh beginnings in every area of life as we mirror Mother Natures rebirth!  The perennial spring flowers are starting to bloom, the stores are selling new plantings, we  open up our windows, and we renew our determination to look great in a swimsuit.   This is the natural time to shape up both our bodies and our homes,  and make our homes healthier and fresher places to spend our time.

You may be asking, if I faithfully clean my house every week or every other week do I still need to do spring cleaning?  Almost without exception, the answer is yes.   The good news is that your spring cleaning tasks will probably take much less time than the sporadic cleaner.

A good place to begin is with what I think of  as the essential PRECLEAN.    This consists in simplifying all our “stuff”.   Work by one of my favorite maxims,  which is “have nothing in your home which is neither useful or beautiful.”    Just look around your space at all  your things with this in mind!  Things will naturally evolve into different categories for garbage,  charity, selling,  or keeping.    Only after this  step,  will you be ready to actually clean.

If you need direction or help with this  important first step, there are many good professional organizers,  and on our staff here at Sponge & Sparkle we have one of the best!   The cost is very reasonable and definitely worth it.
