The aisles of your favorite shops are already filling with easter eggs and cute bunny decorations. Spring doesn’t start until it’s officially Easter. Indeed, depending on where you live, you could still encounter late March and early April frost and sometimes even snow. If you’ve been counting down the days before the official start of the spring season to plant flowers and take out your light dresses from the storage room, you’d better be cautious. But, the good news is that you’ve gotten yourself some extra more weeks for the official spring cleaning!
You can use the extra time to get your home ready with some elegant homemade decorations. If you love crafting, nothing beats the joy of a handmade Easter decor. Alternatively, if you’re not an avid DIY-er, you’ve got plenty of time to spot some cute items in the shops.
The second thing you want to do, ahead of your spring preps, is to clear out the remaining signs of winters. It might sound silly, but a lot of people dive into the spring feeling and forget completely to tackle the signs of damage and wear and tear left by the cold weather.
You soon will be able to use the pool again
When should you start using your outdoor pool again? The answer is a mix of temperature and maintenance. You need to consider the average swimming pool maintenance costs when it comes to getting everything ready for spring. Left unattended during winter, your pool is at risk of developing issues. If you’re working with professional contractors, they will take a variety of factors into consideration to bring back your pool to pristine condition, including how much care you’ve taken of it over the winter season. Ideally, you should maintain your pool annually and keep it clean in winter to avoid issues and high costs. Easter is the best period to prep the pool ahead of the swimming season!
Gurl, give that garden some love
It’s not that you don’t love your garden. But when the weather’s cold and rainy, you’d rather stay indoors. As a result, you may need to plan some hours during your Easter weekend to get your garden under control. Start by clearing the shed and sharpening your tools because you’ll need them to prep the garden. Clearing debris is the next step, and you can use them directly into a homemade compost bin. Make sure to prepare the soil as it’s likely to be compact after the winter.
Time to wash your winter bedding
How often do you wash your duvet and pillows? Most people wash their bed linen every week or every two weeks. But many forget about their duvets! The exposure to heating throughout the winter encourages the spread of bacteria. Therefore, it’s a good idea to wash your duvets and pillows at the end of each season. Ideally, you want a high washing temperature to kill all bacteria. If your washing machine isn’t big enough, you can also entrust your beddings to a local laundry cleaner!
Easter is not just a time for colorful eggs and yummy chocolate! It’s the perfect period to remove the last signs of winter in your home and finally embrace the warm weather. Don’t think of it as a spring cleaning time, but instead, it’s all about preparing for the spring cleaning. The better you prepare, the more you can enjoy the sunny season!
