Spring Cleaning: A DealDash Family Affair

Spring is in the air, and you know what that means – spring cleaning! This is a great time to get your home clean, decluttered, and ready for summer.

Spring cleaning is a time-honored tradition that symbolizes a fresh start, but it doesn’t have to be a task tackled alone. Turn spring cleaning into a fun and effective family affair! It not only lightens the workload but also instills a sense of responsibility and teamwork in your children. Here are some strategies to involve your whole family and make the process enjoyable. Read on for some helpful tips from DealDash.

Decluttering Together: In Spring Cleaning, Less is More

Begin your spring cleaning with a family decluttering session. Make it fun by setting it up as a challenge or game. Who can fill a box with items to donate the fastest? Can you find ten things you no longer use or need? Encouraging your children to make decisions about what to keep and what to give away teaches them about the value of things and the importance of generosity. This strategy is especially effective if you have more than one child. Most kids love a little bit of competition among siblings. Additionally, decluttering creates more space and makes the rest of the cleaning process easier.

Spring Cleaning Organizing Hacks: Creative Solutions

Next, once you’ve cleared the clutter, it’s time to organize what’s left. Involve the whole family in coming up with creative storage solutions. Maybe your kids have ideas for how to organize their toys better or can help decide which kitchen utensils should go where. Use this time to install shelves, label bins, or even create a family command center to keep track of everyone’s schedules. This not only helps keep your home tidy but also makes daily routines smoother. Personally, this is my favorite part of spring cleaning. Making labels and organizing small items is my forte!

DIY Cleaning Solutions: Safe and Eco-Friendly

Incorporate a lesson in sustainability by creating your cleaning solutions using safe, eco-friendly ingredients like vinegar, baking soda, and lemon. This can be a fun science experiment for kids, teaching them about the cleaning properties of these natural substances. Mix your solutions and assign everyone a task, such as window cleaning, dusting, or mopping. Not only are these homemade cleaners effective and safe, but they also reduce the need for harsh chemicals in your home. Using kid-safe ingredients is an excellent way to make sure that even the littlest family member can help clean. For a list of age-appropriate chores for kids, check out this article by The Spruce.

Making It Fun: The Key to Motivation

The secret to a successful family spring cleaning is to make it fun. Create a playlist of everyone’s favorite songs to clean to, or invent silly games and challenges to complete while you work. For example, who can make the most dramatic “before and after” transformation in their room, or who can find the most unusual lost item while cleaning? Rewarding your family with a special treat or activity after the cleaning is done can also provide extra motivation. I find that knowing a pizza will be delivered in 45 minutes is a great motivator for my kids!
