Ack! Spring cleaning the kitchen can be such a big job that it can tire you out just to think about it, much less do it. But, if you have a strategy, a plan, and the right tools, it doesn’t have to be so bad.
Have you started your Spring Cleaning yet?
Depending on how many living spaces you have, you may do them all at once or just a few at a time. For example, if you have a formal living room, a family room and a TV room you might want to clean those apart from the dining room.
If you are going to do that annual deep clean, one of the most important rooms in the house is the bedroom. Because bedrooms have so many fiber surfaces they really collect dust and other household allergens. So, it is important to give them a good clean, but you have to be careful about how.
Remember when the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) changed its guidelines for pat-downs for young children. There was quite a bit of uproar and outrage by parents. They didn’t like strangers touching their children. It was not safe. But are dust mites touching your kids? Are dust mites sleeping with your kids every night?
Just because you suffer from seasonal allergies does not mean you cannot enjoy spring gardening and have a beautiful garden and yard. With some careful planning now, you can enjoy spring and summer full of color without itchy, watery eyes and a runny or stuffy nose.
Why can’t I just spray the bed with the anti-allergen spray, why do I have to have a cover? WOW! We get that question quite a bit. Especially when people are watching every penny and making sure that they don’t spend more than they need to get the results they desire.
