Revitalise with these 5 hacks for a fab spring clean
After an (albeit mild) winter, spring is finally in the air.
And as buds blossom, grass grows and birds and bunnies start to get friskier, it’s a time-worn tradition that we blow away physical and mental cobwebs by blasting through household chores in a seasonal whirlwind.
If you’re ready to revitalise, here are five hacks for a fab spring clean.
- Marie Kondo
First off, pop on the kettle, put your feet up and watch cleaning guru Marie Kondo on Netflix.
Marie’s hit series Tidying Up champions her philosophy that precision household engineering can transform your life, as well as keeping your home spotless.
So before embarking on your own spick and span session, catch a couple of episodes to get yourself in the right mindset.
- Satvada retreats
There’s no point tidying up your surroundings when your mind’s in disarray — it defeats a key part of the purpose.
So, treating yourself to a mindfulness for wellbeing weekend in rural Norfolk is the perfect pick-me-up.
Run by Satvada retreats in April and November, it includes guided mindfulness sessions, delicious vegan meals and delightful company, and is hosted in a beautiful converted barn complex with surrounding woodlands and lake.
- Gerard Giles
Once Marie Kondo and Satvada have your brain and body perfectly balanced, you might decide to treat yourself to a brand-new vacuum cleaner to supercharge your spring clean.
And there’s no better place to grab a bargain than Norwich household emporium Gerard Giles.
Whether Dyson, Miele or Bosch is your bag, they’ve got every brand under the sun — there are even robot vacuum cleaners with advanced navigation systems and scheduled cleaning.
- Home Fresh
If you prefer leaving deep cleaning to the pros, Norwich-based Home Fresh offers commercial and domestic cleaning services at a reasonable cost — so you can spruce up your home or office without breaking the bank.
No matter how good you think your cleaning chops are, you won’t believe how their talented staff get every nook and cranny sparkling.
Plus, they work at a time that suits you best – even after office hours and at weekends. So you might like to take off on a brief spa break and return to a clean and serene environment.
When your spring clean is complete, you’ll want to sustain the standards for the rest of the year.
And one of the simplest ways to do this is by preventing dirt and detritus entering your inner sanctum with a high-performance floor mat.
Mat manufacturer Kleen-Tex has over 50 years’ experience designing quality mats for the home and all manner or commercial and industrial applications – it’s worth investing in one of their premium products.
Follow these five fab spring clean hacks and your psyche and physical environment will be awesomely aligned.
