Spring Cleaning Tips for Your Aurora Apartment

Spring has sprung! Soon you will be spending more time outdoors, but until that time, why not give your Aurora apartment a deep cleaning?

Bring Some Spring Inside 

Who doesn’t love the smell of lilac? You can have your Aurora apartment smelling like a spring breeze with this DIY lilac room spray recipe, which is made with water, vodka, and lilac oil.

Eco-Friendly Bathroom Cleaner

Cleaning out your apartment’s bathtub with a commercial cleaner can leave behind traces of chemicals. It is also hard on your skin. Try using grapefruit and salt for a natural bathroom cleaner.

Clean Your Showerhead

You assume that when you take a shower, you are being sprayed with clean water. But did you know that a showerhead becomes clogged with mineral deposits? To deep clean it, fill a plastic bag with undiluted white vinegar and place the bag over the showerhead so it is submerged; secure and seal the bag with a rubber band. Soak overnight and then gently scrub the face of the showerhead with a toothbrush.

 Dust Free Sweeping

Spring is the perfect time to move furniture and do some deep dusting. One trick to keep your apartment dust free is to spray a small amount of water into the basin of the dustpan. The dirt will stick to the pan, making clean up, dust free.

Sparkling Clean Faucets

If you have mineral deposits or soap scum on your faucets, this easy DIY cleaning trick will get them clean and sparkling again. Simply, take a clean cloth and wrap it around the faucets and pour vinegar on top. Leave the solution on the faucets for about an hour then gently clean it with a soft toothbrush. Once the faucets are cleaned, rinse it and wipe it with a dry cloth.

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!
