Spring is in full swing and that can only mean one thing: it’s time for SPRING CLEANING! If the idea of spring cleaning fills you with dread, here’s 5 quick, fun ideas to kick-up your cleaning motivation.
  1. 1. Add Music Crank your favorite tunes and dance your way to ultimate cleanliness. Shake your booty to some Beyoncé while you add some sparkle to your bathroom.
  2. 2. Get your kids involved Forget cleaning solo—get the whole family involved for optimal fun. Even the littlest ones can help pick up toys, water plants, or sweep floors.
  3. 3. Make it a game Set a timer and see how many items you can pick up before the buzzer. Or clean up with color coordination in mind: grab all the blue items in a pile then move on to the red.
  4. 4. Stock up on supplies Grab some colorful or nice smelling cleaning supplies that will help get you jazzed about spring cleaning. Aromatherapy tips: lavender helps you relax, while peppermint helps you think better.
  5. 5. Reward yourself Set cleaning milestones throughout your day and give yourself a small reward every time you hit one. Finally cleared out your closet? Time for an ice cream cone: you earned it! At the end of the cleaning purge gift yourself one big treat, like a manicure and pedicure, or that pea coat you’ve been eyeing.
