Some experts trace the beginning of spring cleaning to the Persian new year, which falls on the first day of spring. Iranians continue the practice just before the Persian New Year when everything in the house is thoroughly cleaned from drapes to furniture. Here are some ways to make cleaning less intimidating.
- Start from the top and work down.
- Dust lighting fixtures, door moldings, and window tops.
- Sweep floors, then mop. If you have carpet, vacuum.
- Clean/disinfect countertops and surface areas.
- Concentrate on tubs, sinks, and toilets.
- Don’t forget about mirrors and glass.
- Donate unused or unwanted items to thrift stores.
Cleaning can be a little intimidating but if you can do it in smaller increments, like one bedroom at a time or one bathroom at a time, it gradually becomes less stressful.
