Spring Cleaning Tips During Self-Quarantine

Spring Cleaning Tips During Self-Quarantine

This spring, we’re all spending a lot more time in our homes. As we self-isolate to help slow the spread of COVID-19, it’s important to keep a clean environment so we can boost our immune systems and declutter our lives.

1

Find Peace in the Pristine

One major positive of cracking down on cleanliness is lessening your stress. Anxiety is at a peak level right now for many people because of the coronavirus pandemic and sitting around in a disaster area can certainly add to it. Tackling a project like cleaning out your closet, organizing shoes, and wiping down the surfaces in your home brings a quiet sense of triumph that also puts your mind at ease.

 

A well-organized domain promotes satisfaction and a sense of accomplishment that can help improve your mental well-being. Individuals with clean homes have reportedly less of the stress hormone cortisol, meaning that a variety of aspects of mental and physical health can be aided by a restful and restorative home environment.

Breathe Sweeter

Clean Air

Feel an empowering sense of self-protection with the addition of air-purifying elements in your home. An air filter or air purifier can be extremely beneficial to those with allergies or asthma. Respiratory health is of paramount importance as we face the coronavirus, so regularly vacuuming and ridding your house of dust, pollutants, and allergens is a good idea. Irritants like pet dander, dust, mold, smoke odor, or volatile organic compounds can be filtered quite thoroughly with an air purifier.

Disinfect Naturally

Disinfect Naturally

Part of your deep cleaning process during quarantine will obviously involve disinfectant. Finding natural ways to cut through grease and pet odor will aid in maintaining a healthful home. Products like baking soda, vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, and borax are tough on mold, oil, dirt, rust, and stains. Essential oils like tea tree oil are good for adding a refreshing aroma to your cleanser of choice while also being naturally antibacterial.

Create a Checklist

Go room to room and make a list of all that needs to be done. Each room will have unique tasks like dishes in the kitchen and putting away laundry in the bedroom, but each room will also have common tasks such as wiping down walls and ceilings, dusting baseboards, vacuuming, and mopping. Having a checklist helps you break down the tasks so they don’t feel as overwhelming. Take one room at a time. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, start in one corner and work your way around.

Wax, Polish, and Shine

A lovely finishing touch to all deep-cleaning projects is making each surface in your home glimmer and gleam like brand new. Polishing metal is often overlooked, but with self-quarantine you now have time to do it. It’s a simple way to make your home sparkle. Wax wooden furniture by wiping it down with a soft cloth dampened with water and a wax-based furniture cleaner like Murphy’s Oil. If time is not on your side, simply wiping down surfaces regularly keep your home dust-free and hygienic.
