5 Spring Cleaning Tips to Help Sanitize Your Home

5 Spring Cleaning Tips to Help Sanitize Your Home


Spring cleaning is a ritual for some. For others, it may have taken a global pandemic to finally get you in the cleaning mood, either way – you’ll need the perfect strategy if you want to effectively sanitize your home right now. Typical cleaning habits and methods aren’t enough to minimize your chances of catching Coronavirus, so here are 5 tips you can utilize during quarantine to clean your home from head to toe.

1. Take it Slow

Sit back and come up with a daily schedule for cleaning, rather than trying to get it all done in one day. For instance, you can tackle a new area of your home each day, moving in order from most dirty to least, or vice versa. Chunking your spring cleaning like this will allow you to move thoroughly clean each area and make the most of your vast amounts of free time.

2. Keep the Germs Out

Coronavirus is spread mainly through the air, so by minimizing the amount of air leakage your home has, you can lessen the chance that this deadly virus will even make it into your home. Weatherproofing windows and doors is a good place to start, but you should also have your groceries delivered whenever possible, and sanitize everything that comes through the door before you open it.

3. Clean High-Traffic Areas More Often

Unfortunately, Corona cleaning requires a bit more consistency than your average spring cleaning. Grab a handheld cleaner of your choice and spray down your beautiful quartz countertops, as well as the entire kitchen while you’re at it. Areas like countertops, tables, and other commonly touched areas of your house should see daily basic cleaning with a quick wipedown.

4. Get the Kids Involved

On a non-Corona related note, now is the perfect time to declutter those closets and clean up those kids’ rooms. Have your kids pitch in by deciding what stuff they have that they don’t want. This can be donated to a shelter or some other type of charity, and will help your kids feel like they are pitching in to help their community during this global crisis. You can also teach them a lot about basic cleaning techniques during this time, which many children never have the opportunity to learn before they leave the nest.

5. DIY Cleaner

If you find yourself out of cleaning products but you don’t want to make a trip to the store, don’t worry. You can make a simple Corona-killer with rubbing alcohol and tea-tree or lavender essential oils. Vinegar and dish soap will also get the job done on windows and similar areas.

Keep Your Home Clean and Pristine

By utilizing these tips, you can teach your kids some valuable lessons about hard work and charity, while also minimizing your family’s chances of catching Corona. Use one or more of the tips we’ve listed here to help carry you and your loved ones through these uncertain times and emerge from this pandemic unscathed.
