It’s that time of the year. You flipped your calendar to March, which means spring break and warmer weather are on their way. March also means the start of spring cleaning, and the benefits aren’t only cosmetic. Donating clothing and other items you don’t use can be a huge blessing to someone in need. Cleaning can reduce allergy symptoms, and the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology recommends cleaning your home to help you cut back on allergy symptoms.
Beyond feeling more ready to have friends and family over to your home, you gain the pride of a job well done. You’ll be able to sleep easy knowing your closet is organized and your carpets are clean. Spring cleaning can feel overwhelming, which is why we made this easy list for you to follow. In a few easy steps, your home will be squeaky clean and ready for company.
