We may be stuck inside, but Spring is still springing! So it’s the perfect time to get cleaning!
What better way to celebrate Spring Cleaning, then to honor everybody’s favorite clean freak, Monica Geller! Famous for her crazy clean freak antics on FRIENDS!
Follow these great tips below from TV’s “Clean Queen” and make sure your home is “Monica Clean!”
#1 If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself! And, if I’m harsh with you, it’s only because you’re doing it wrong.
#2 Start by making a checklist of everything you want to get done. This will keep you on track and organized throughout the process.
#3 Don’t try to take on too much at once. Start with one room and one task at a time to feel more accomplished.
#4 Be prepared. Stock up on cleaning supplies before you start. This will keep you in the groove and motivated.
#5 Turn on some tunes to keep you in the rhythm. Singing to my favorite song while scrubbing the toilet gives me pure joy.
#6 Use the ‘top down’ method. Clean top (ceiling and fans) to the bottom (floors and baseboards) to avoid cleaning the same area twice. But, if you are compulsive like me, you will clean it twice anyway!
#7 Nothing says cleaning like a good purge! When in doubt – throw it out! Oh! Now I’ll get to use my shredder.
#8 Create the picture-perfect organizing system. Baskets, tubs, and storage cubes are functional and practical to keep things organized. I mean, I have won awards for my organizational skills.
#9 Say goodbye to Winter – and hello to Spring! If you haven’t worn it in a year, get rid of it! It’s time to make room for your Spring wardrobe!
#10 Now if you want it to be “Monica Clean,” do it all over again! I KNOW!!!
