Spring cleaning is usually the time when you de-clutter your home and give each room a good and thorough clean. Unfortunately, these chores don’t disappear throughout the summer months and with the warmer weather and kids on a break from school, there’s even more tasks to keep up with during the summer.
With the kids at home during the day, the kitchen can get super messy with toys cluttering up the table and floor, and sticky ice cream finger marks get on appliances. To keep the clutter in the kitchen to a minimum, encourage everyone in the house to put everything away once they’ve finished using them. To easily remove finger print marks from appliances, use lemon juice or warm soapy water and wipe the marks away with a soft cloth.
It’s important during the summer months of warmer air to keep the windows open in the bathroom as much as possible. Keeping the bathroom aired will help to reduce humidity in the room which can cause mould.
With the kids spending more time outdoors over the summer holidays, there’s far more washing to be done and clothes have more outdoor stains. To avoid being overloaded with mountains of washing, organize it in to piles such as what is a priority or what may need to be treated with stain remover before being put in the machine.
Pests and insects
During the summer, flies, bugs and spiders invade your home. To manage these pests, use an insect repellent spray and make sure to keep on top of the dusting to get rid of cobwebs.
