It’s a new year and a new day.
This means that you should leave your junky ways behind and tidy up to the best of your ability. Doing so gives you more energy and peace of mind — particularly if you live in an apartment that is easily cluttered.
One of the best things you can do is come up with an apartment cleaning checklist that can guide you through the process. Use these points below so that you can get the best cleaning possible for your apartment.
1. Start With a Purpose
Tidying expert Marie Kondo takes an all-encompassing approach to cleaning and getting rid of junk. Rather than just backing a truck up to properties and getting rid of everything, she starts with purpose.
In fact, on her new NetFlix series, she begins every job by first “greeting” the living space to feel its energy.
You can borrow this state of mind by having some purpose behind your cleaning. Take a deep breath, and a moment to journal your thoughts and goals or envision what the space will look like when you’re all finished.
Doing this will help you power through the job with gratitude and purpose, rather than having it become a weekend project that you dread.
2. Clear Out the Big, Obvious Junk That You Need to Get Rid Of
Before you can even think about decorating your apartment, you’ll need to get rid of the clutter.
When your apartment is a mess, there are likely some big and obvious things that you need to get rid of first. Box up the things that you know you need to get rid of and make a trip to Goodwill or another local thrift store.
Not only will you be able to tidy up your apartment, but you will also be able to gift some of your old belongings to someone that needs them.
3. Find Tiny Boxes and Containers For Your Miscellaneous Items
The miscellaneous stuff can be the most tenuous. When you have countless little bits and pieces, there may not immediately be a logical or efficient place to put them all.
Grab some little boxes and containers and label them accordingly so that you can create places to put these items. Doing this will take a lot of the stress out of the cleaning process for you.
4. Use Products That Disinfect and Make Your Property Look and Smell Great
Finally, your cleaning project isn’t complete without a good and thorough scrubbing.
Grab the cleaning products that you like the best and make sure that you go over every major surface in your apartment. This way, it’ll shine, smell good, and be legitimately clean.
