Spring Cleaning Tips for Your Sagamore Apartment

Spring may be taking its sweet time returning, but that doesn’t mean you need to delay any annual spring cleaning in your Sagamore apartment! Here are some tips for making your apartment feel refreshing and new for the warmer weather.

Declutter: With all the great shops and holiday sales around the Upper West Side and NYC, it’s easy throughout the year to build up your closest with more stuff in just a year. Start by going through each closet and follow by making your way through each room.  Get rid of the items you no longer need and create a pile of those items you don’t really need but are having a tough time parting with. Revisit in a day or a few weeks and if you still haven’t found yourself putting them to use, make the more and donate them instead of throwing away. You can donate any old clothes or home essentials to Housing Works and Goodwill, both located here on the Upper West Side.

Cleaning Supplies: Make sure to stock up on all cleaning essentials! Helpful tools include a vacuum, Mop, plenty of counter spray, and more! You can stop by Basics Plus Hardware and grab all cleaning supplies including reusable cloths, so you don’t have to go through rolls of paper towels.

Scrubbing and Dusting: Cleaning the small nooks and crannies is never fun but essential to get that sparkle and a super clean apartment. Making sure the windows, corners of the door frames, blinds, counters and all the little spots you may not think of will help make your Mariner apartment sparkling clean this spring. Go through each room and move around furniture and anything on a counter top so you tackle every spot. You’ll thank yourself once it’s complete!

Earth-Friendly Spring Cleaning Tips For Your Sagamore Apartment

With all the outdoor adventures that come with the spring time, also comes spring cleaning season! The weather is getting warmer each week, making it time to put away those heavy jackets and winter clothes. Spring cleaning your Sagamore apartment is a great way to start off the warm weather months! If you plan on diving in and cleaning winter blues and beginning spring with a fresh start, we have some tips for our residents on eco-friendly cleaning this spring!

Skip the Swiffer: Swiffers and other similar cleaning products are super convenient when cleaning your apartment. However, the disposable bottoms create more waste and aren’t very environmentally friendly. By sticking to a good old fashioned reusable mop, can help reduce the amount of waste we create.

Hang Dry Laundry: With spring here and the warm weather taking over, it is easy to hang dry your clean clothes instead of throwing them in the washer! When pulling out the spring and summer wardrobe and getting ready for some heavy loads of laundry after they have been sitting around for months, choose to hang dry them! Dryers use up a ton of energy so by taking a break from it and drying your clothes either outside or on a drying rack indoors.

Homemade Cleaning Products: By making your own cleaning products, you can help eliminate the use of harmful chemicals which is good for both the environment and you! There are several different combinations you can create that will eliminate stains and odors just as good as store-bought brands.
