The season of spring is in the air! That means the flowers are blooming, the birds are singing, and the natural world receives a reviving boost. If your apartment here at The Apartments at Kirkland Crossing could use a similar refresh, scheduling a spring cleaning session is key. By tidying up for the season, you clear away unnecessary clutter and reveal more physical and mental space. Here are some ways you can make your session productive and fun!


Try Out Cleaning Games for Kids


Living with little ones can pose a challenge when it comes to cleaning. If they typically run for the hills when you tell them to do their part, try out cleaning games for kids to reframe their thinking. By adding an element of play to the process, children are more likely to associate spring cleaning with positivity, helping to develop healthy habits in the long term. Plus, parents who participate can get back in touch with their own inner child!


Get Crafty With DIY Cleaners


The general mantra of springtime is, “out with the old, in with the new.” This message can reflect in the household products you use to clean with too! When it comes to using store-bought cleaning products, you’ll find that they can cut into your home budget over time. By making the switch to DIY cleaners, you’ll save money and tap into your creative side! Beginning hobbyists will love making this citrus-scented all-purpose cleaner. It takes only five ingredients to create that cost just pennies on the dollar!


Engage in Green Cleaning Hacks


The best reason to make the switch to homemade cleaning products? You get to do your part in saving the earth! Most store-bought cleaners contain harsh chemical additives that are harmful to use around pets and small children. Grime-fighting powerhouses like vinegar, baking soda, and borax are naturally-derived and still get the job done right. This list of green cleaning hacks is a great entry into how to use eco-friendly cleaners to clean messes all around the household!


Once you get that spring cleaning session underway, you’ll find that your apartment environment will feel a lot calmer and welcoming. How are you planning on tackling your clutter? Let us know in the comments!
