Spring is in full swing. The calendar summer is just around the corner and so the most beautiful sun rays shine almost daily into our apartment. A wonderful mood arises. Wonderfully relaxing. To finally be able to experience warm and above all long days. It makes so much easier. With the beautiful lukewarm days comes the longing for a general overhaul in the apartment. The sun shows us one or two stripes on the window. The more beautiful the days get, the more I long for really nice clean, freshly decorated and tidy rooms. In short! At the weekend my spring cleaning was due for this year.
Not an easy task with children around you. If they are not there and during the week there is usually not enough time for a proper spring cleaning, when the whole household is turned inside out.
Cleaning tips for a successful spring cleaning
My first cleaning tips revolve around everything for a well-planned spring cleaning.

I’ve been longing for my spring cleaning this year since the beginning of the year. I love this day when everything smells as fresh as it just moved in. Every room shines in a new light. In the evening I like to lie down in my bathtub in the freshly cleaned bathroom as a reward and enjoy a cup of tea.

My plan therefore includes:

Select the right cleaning agents for a successful spring cleaning
The intensive cleaning of my devices largely depends on the right products. I like to use household funds from P&G Home Care. Firstly, because they all smell pleasant and soothing, and secondly because they achieve an effective cleaning, without being exhausted by an exhausting cleaning act. In addition, they can all be bought everywhere in common drugstores.
Why is spring cleaning important to me?
Every now and then, in addition to my favorite products, some life hacks are used, so in the end I really get my apartment like new. Why is spring cleaning important to me? My beautiful, fresh home strengthens me. I feel good when I feel comfortable in my own four walls. It has a positive effect on my well-being because I like to be at home when it is nice, clean and pretty.
I start my spring cleaning in the kitchen
I always start my spring cleaning in the kitchen. Here I prefer to clean with the super fat-dissolving detergent . I love to eat oatmeal in the morning, unfortunately I rarely manage to wash the bowl right afterwards. With the Fairy dishwashing liquid, this is not a problem even in the evening. To relieve my dishwasher, I still clean some things by hand, such as my cereal bowls, non-dishwasher-safe material or pots and pans.
I also cleaned stubborn residues in the fridge, microwave and oven from scratch with a detergent. It really awesome removes all greasy residue. The detergent has left a lasting impression on us, especially in our oven. It worked great.
The floors and surfaces are of me with the Mr. Clean All Purpose Cleaner been cleaned. With a simple wiping motion, it removes all dirt and smells wonderfully long-lasting of spring. Afterwards I cleaned the stove and the sink with an antibacterial all-purpose cleaner spray to remove any bacteria and bring a radiant shine to my kitchen. The spray removes 99.9% of the bacteria. For me in the bacterial jungle sink an absolute must-have.
Small tip on the side! It is easiest to clean with a bamboo cloth. Above all, all conventional cleaning wipes scratch our surfaces more than we are aware of. This does not happen with a bamboo cloth.
Dusting super easy with dust magnet – my cleaning tip NO.1
After the kitchen is ready, I dedicate myself to the annoying dust in the living room, children’s room and on all surfaces . Glass tables, bathroom tiles, radiators, louvre blinds, picture frames, wall units, TVs and shelf surfaces are particularly sensitive. With the dust magnet from Swiffer, cleaning is really super easy in all small spaces, such as the annoying blinds. All surfaces are also wiped free of dust in one direction. Sounds easy? It is! The dust wiper is really my favorite cleaning aid at home.
Cleaning tip for removing limescale and soap residues as well as water stains
We adults shower every day. The children bathe at least once a week and when they feel like it. Water, lime and soap residues in the bathroom are inevitable. This is a big problem, especially in the bathroom. However, there is no time for daily cleaning when both parents are working. The residues are persistent in this way. A swipe is no longer enough. My solution? Antikal.
100% lime is removed and the very best? The reason why it is my favorite product against the stubborn residue in the bathroom? With regular use, Antikal forms a protective film, a so-called protective barrier, which prevents the formation of new deposits and thus achieves a lasting shine or makes cleaning much easier in the long run. A relief for me in my everyday life.
At the very end I walk through my clean apartment with a wonderful air freshener and give all rooms a wonderful fresh fragrance with Febreze. It really takes away any unpleasant smell. Isn’t that wonderful? Is there anything nicer than feeling good all around? I am so grateful that I have found my favorite products and that I can feel so happy at home. Do you already have your spring cleaning behind you or is it still to come?
