Preparation for Autumn Cleaning

Autumn Cleaning

Before diving into autumn cleaning, you must prepare your supplies and devise a solid plan to save time and effort. Here are 2 easy steps we suggest you follow: 

  1. Do a quick inventory of your cleaning supplies. Ensure you have everything you need, like an all-purpose cleaner, microfiber cloths, a broom, and a vacuum. If you’re missing anything, stock up before you get started. 
  2. Create a cleaning plan that works for you. Whether you prefer to tackle one room at a time or break it down into smaller tasks, having a plan will make the process less overwhelming. 

Tips for Autumn Cleaning

  1. Don’t forget the exterior of your home. Remember to clear away any fallen leaves and debris to prevent your gutters and downpipes from clogging since this can lead to water damage during winter storms. You can use a leaf blower or rake to make this task quick and easy. If you have some energy left afterwards, you might also want to power wash your patio or deck for a deep clean before winter sets in.
  2. DECLUTTER. Decluttering your home is a great way to make space for new things and remove the stuff that is no longer valuable. Start by sorting through each room and categorise items into three: to keep, to sell (you can do this through Gumtree or Facebook Marketplace), to donate, to the junk. For items that you’d like to donate, you might want to consider local charities like Vinnies or The Salvation Army.
  3. Put your kitchen staples to good use. You can’t go wrong with vinegar and water or baking soda and lemon juice. Vinegar is a great all-purpose cleaner for cleaning windows, countertops, and floors. Baking soda is a natural abrasive to clean sinks, toilets, and bathtubs. Lemon juice is a natural disinfectant used to remove stains and odours.
  4. Swap out your bedding and linens. As the cooler season approaches, it’s time to freshen up your bedding and linens and replace them with cozy blankets and flannel sheets. You might also want to add warm autumn scents to your home with essential oils like cinnamon, clove, or pumpkin spice.
  5. Customise a cleaning schedule that works for you. A cleaning schedule can help you stay on top of household chores all season. Know more about creating one in our article on cleaning schedules.

 Autumn Cleaning Safety Measures

As with any cleaning routine, it’s important to take safety measures to protect yourself and your family. Here are some tips to remember during your autumn cleaning:

  • Ventilate your home: When using cleaning products, open windows and doors to allow fresh air to circulate. 
  • Keep children and pets away: To prevent accidents, keep children and pets away from cleaning areas. Store cleaning supplies in a safe and secure location out of reach.
  • Take breaks: Don’t overexert yourself when cleaning. Take breaks when necessary, and stay hydrated with plenty of water.
