Simple Ways to Refresh your Home This Spring #BestFeelings

Once the weather starts to get a little warmer (usually a little earlier here than up North) and I begin to hear the birds chirping outside, I know that spring is near. I don’t know what it is about this transition from winter to spring that always gives me the urge to refresh our home for spring! I think of it as renewal for our home and myself – especially when I incorporate a fragrance from the new and refreshing Glade® Limited Edition Spring Collection. It gives me an exhilarating boost of energy to revitalize my entire home, top to bottom. That being said, it can feel quite overwhelming to spruce up the entire home. Today, I want to share some quick and easy tips that will hopefully make the process a little bit more manageable for you this spring.

Spring Cleaning Tips

Have a plan. Write down everything you want to get accomplished. What areas of the home do you want to refresh?

Set a time limit. Give yourself a certain amount of time to get each project done, set a timer, and get to work. Once the timer goes off, move on to the next project. This motivates me (it’s like a competition with myself!) and also makes the process feel less overwhelming because I know there is an “end” in sight.

Work in stages. Seriously, there is no reason to do all spring projects in one day. Once you have made a plan, you can divide it up over a few days (i.e. bring out the brightly colored pillows and towels on Monday, organize the pantry on Tuesday and so on).

Light a few candles in several rooms around the house to help revitalize and freshen your home. I love the new Glade® Limited Edition Spring Collection – especially the Glade® Dig It Jar Candles. They are fruity and floral, putting me in the mental state of spring and motivating me to go outdoors and do what I love!

Glade Candle

 

The Glade® Limited Edition Spring Collection features several uplifting fragrances that perfectly reflect spring:

  • Lift Off (White Tea and Magnolia)
  • Live Loud (Rosehip and Plumeria)
  • Splash Out (Blackberry and Spring Rain)
  • Let Loose (Kiwi and Wild Peach)
  • Dig It (Citrus and Sunflower)

 

Put your family to work too! Have a “spring refresh day” and give each family member a specific job that is age appropriate. You can even give out fun awards for whoever does the best job!

Focus on organization. Make sure that toys are put away, house is de-cluttered and everything is in its spot. An organized home always helps me feel ready for the day ahead.
