4 Ways To Make Spring Cleaning Fun

4 Ways To Make Spring Cleaning Fun

Spring is officially upon us. While we're eager for flowers to bloom and birds to sing, there are responsibilities amongst the delights of the season.

The annual spring clean may seem daunting, but we're here to help with a handy list of ways to make spring cleaning fun.

Punch Up the Jams

Before you grab your mop and your sponge, spend some time curating a cleaning playlist. We like to go with more upbeat tempos, similar to a fitness playlist, to stay active and energized. It's important to plan your playlist ahead of time so you don't have to take off your gloves and lose momentum. If you have a smart speaker, utilize your Siri or Alexa with voice commands so your hands stay scrubbing and the beats keep bumping.

Cue the Friendly Competition

If you have a roommate, tackling spring cleaning together is a great way to bond and enjoy some friendly competition. The goal of the game is to see which individual is the better cleaner. First, select separate rooms to tackle. Then, take before shots of each of the spaces. Finally, get cleaning! You'll need a third party at the end to judge which room is most improved. Afterwards, the loser owes the winner a round of drinks.

Plan a Post-Cleaning Party

Tidying up is so much easier with some motivation. To inspire you to get scrubbing, plan a small get-together with friends shortly after your cleaning spree. Not only will they be amazed by your sparkling apartment, but you will also find yourself giddy as you think of the fun that awaits in your snazzy space.

Reward Yourself!

Spring cleaning is no easy feat. Especially in larger spaces, addressing every nook and cranny can be time consuming and exhausting. After everything is finished, reward yourself for a job well done. Instead of planning your reward, make up your mind the day of in case your mood changes. Once you drop the mop, think of what would simply be amazing in that moment. Whether you're grabbing a pint of ice cream or hitting the movies with your friend, remember you deserve it!
