Out with winter and in with spring! It is that time of year again to give our homes a deep clean after our winter “hibernations.” From tidying up, decluttering, organizing, and deep cleaning, your friends here at Busch’s Florist, Jefferson City’s premier floral shop, have a few tips to help make this year’s spring clean better than ever. Our guide to spring cleaning has eco-friendly ways to disinfect, creative ideas to refine, and spring blooms to uplift and perfect each room in your home.
Refresh Your Kitchen
Deep cleaning and refreshing your kitchen in preparation for the new spring season can be quick and easy with a few helpful tips. For instance, dust bunnies are no problem if you dampen the end of your broom, and you can even get those stubborn ones from behind the refrigerator. Simply vacuum the broom to make sure they are gone for good.
Refresh with Spring Flowers
Nothing pairs better together than a freshly cleaned kitchen and a refreshing bouquet of spring flowers or a wonderful green plant. Not only will this hint of bright color uplift and enhance your mood, but these living beauties can enhance oxygen flow and help purify the air.
- Peace Lily: This vibrant plant can “spring clean” the air
- Carnations: A pure and classic seasonal bloom
- Tulips: Our favorite traditional flower symbolizing love and rebirth
- Eucalyptus: Invigorating fragrance associated with positive energy
Reorganize Your Bathroom
When it comes to your bathroom, of course, you know the importance of making sure everything is clean and sanitized, but how often do you think of the items you have in your medicine cabinet and linen closet? From expired over-the-counter medicines to fraying towels, now may be the perfect time to rearrange, reassess, and reorganize the contents of your bathroom. Toss out what you no longer need, repurpose items such as towels for cleaning rags, and move the seasonal products, like sunscreen and aloe, to the front of the cabinet for easy access.
Reorganize with Spring Flowers
There is so much to love about spring blooms. One of our favorite things is how they can give us a warm welcome when we walk into any room, even the bathroom. With their beautiful petals and hues, and sweet fragrances, there is no need to invest in another candle, plug-in air freshener, or aerosol spray.
- Daffodils: The best flower to ease stress
- Gerbera Daisies: Inspire joy throughout your day
- Sunflowers: Radiate peace, happiness, and sunshine
- Hyacinths: Symbol of pride, beauty, and love
Refine Your Bedroom
We think of the bedroom as a sanctuary in our home to help us rest, recharge, and feel warm happy feelings. So, if your bedroom is lacking in this area or you think you could use a better night’s sleep, try refining your space with some feng shui guidelines. First, declutter the space underneath your bed. Leave nothing behind except linens, if you need the storage space. Then, make sure your bed is positioned correctly, away from the door, windows, and vents as to avoid drafts. Finally, a decluttered bedroom is key for a restful night.
Refine with Spring Flowers
Fresh spring flowers are a lovely addition to any room, but especially your bedroom. Since this is the place you go to unwind, relax, and feel happy at home, live blooms bring both calming and uplifting feelings. You can also select the perfect look, color, symbolism, and scent to really add a personal touch to your decor.
- Sweet Peas: Refresh your bedroom with a sweet and blissful scent
- Peonies: Welcome spring with a symbol of rebirth, luck, and prosperity
- Hydrangea: Promotes a peaceful rest throughout the night
- Orchids: A beautiful bloom to balance energy with refinement
Our favorite part about welcoming spring is all the seasonal blooms that we get to admire and adore. Soak in all the purifying, reviving, and relaxing feelings these lively plants offer.
