Winter can be harsh, leaving behind a mess of snow, grime, and dirt in your garage, basement, and backyard. It is a good idea to clean up these areas before spring officially arrives and it is too cold to work outside. If you want to have a more organized, clean and beautiful yard and home this spring, here are some tips to get started.
Start in the Bedroom
Your bed is a haven for dust mites, which are known to cause year-round allergies. They thrive on your dead skin cells, lotion, hair and sweat that gather in the cracks of your bed. To get rid of these pesky creatures, you need to sanitize your sponges. To do this, soak your sponges in a solution of one part bleach to nine parts water for a minute. This will kill any germs and make your sponges last longer.
Clutter-free Digital Life
A thorough digital spring cleaning can help you reduce the risk of a data breach or identity theft. Keeping your computer and devices clean can also improve their performance, speed, and safety. In addition to deleting outdated information, you can declutter your social media accounts and clear out old files that are taking up space. This will allow you to use your favorite apps and websites more efficiently. Moreover, it will eliminate the risk of hackers accessing your personal information. However, this should be done on a regular basis to keep your digital life clean.
