5 Fall Cleaning and Housekeeping Tips to Keep Your Family Content
Leaves are changing, temperatures have begun to drop, and school is back in session, this means that it’s time to prepare your home for the upcoming winter. Here are 5 Fall Cleaning and Housekeeping Tips to keep you and your family happy this season.
Cozy Up the Place
Bring out your fall and winter linens and blankets that you put away in the spring. Switch out all your cotton bed covers for a heavier duvet and change out throws on the back of furniture to fleece and other cozy fabrics. Make your living areas as inviting and warm as possible.
Dusting Makes Perfect
No doubt this summer was filled with many relaxing days (and nights) outside, away from your normal living areas. It’s likely that dust has found its way back into your home. Wipe off ceiling fans that have been running all summer, and clean off baseboards and wood floors. Break out your handy vacuum attachment and go to work on those blinds and curtains.
Treat Your Windows
If you’re like many people, you probably change out your curtains for warm weather. This practice should also be reversed. Update window treatments to heavier fabrics more suited to blocking winter air and drafts. The stylish homeowner may want to choose a color palette that matches autumn’s brilliance.
Raid the Closet
Go through your closet and remove all the winter coats, hats, gloves, and boots that you previously squirreled away. Inspect them for damage and dirt, decide if any of them need to be replaced or mended, and clean offending spots and odors as necessary. Now you have room to put all your summer clothes away until next year!
Before you know it, the holidays will be a few weeks away so get in all of your deep cleanings before time runs out. Mop, scrub the bathroom, clean the upholstery, wash pillows, and so on.
