It’s almost here! One way to shake off those dull winter blues is to get “Spring ready.” It will put a pep in your step and get your spirit ready for the outdoors, sunshine, and happiness abound!
The return of spring heralds a flurry of activity around the house, when a welcome feeling of renewal inspires us to clean, freshen, and get organized—and thawing temperatures lure us outdoors to get back into the garden and help things grow.
Some tips that you may not think of:
~Flip or rotate your mattress.
~Swap heavy quilts and blankets for lighter-weight bedding.*Be sure to wash and thoroughly dry
all bedding before storing because body oils are what attract moths and insects.*
~Air out throw rugs on a clothesline to freshen. Steam clean or shampoo wall-to-wall carpeting.
~Wash pillows and curtains to help reduce allergens and dust mites.
~Change smoke and carbon monoxide detector batteries.
~Organize and thoroughly clean out kitchen cupboards and the fridge, discarding canned goods and other items that are past their expiration dates.
~Organize the basement and inspect for mold. Open doors and windows to thoroughly ventilate the area.
~Clean gutters, remove all debris.
~Check/Change outside light bulbs.
~Check walkways and driveways for cracks and repair needs.
~Lay down fresh, irrigated soil and plant Perennials.
