Spring cleaning tips

We asked you to submit your best tip for clearing out the cobwebs now that spring is on the way - here are ten of the best.

  • Stick the CD player on so I can dance whilst cleaning, which makes it both fun and exercise at the same time. trikken
  • My simple motto for a tidy organised home is, "if in doubt, throw it out". FannyFifer
  • Those cheap toothbrushes in supermarkets are perfect for cleaning around the kitchen sink, taps, etc. pixi2
  • Open the windows, I've got mine open today for one of the first times this year and my house already feels brighter. Bluebump
  • Of course a Spring clean in the 21st Century should extend to technology too. Ensuring that all anti-virus software is up to date, emptying your mail box (and setting up folders as appropriate if there are emails you need/want to keep), getting rid of unnecessary downloads, defragmenting the computer as appropriate. Get rid of unused/unwanted technology via Curry's/PC World too, so they are disposed of properly rather than dumping them in the bin so they end up in land-fill! Gazzalw
  • Fold matching sheet and duvet cover sets into the matching pillowcase, so when you change bedding, each "set" is neatly bagged up and you don't have to rifle through all the bedding searching for it. InMySpareTime
  • If the grout between your bathroom tiles is discoloured or a bit mildew-ridden then don a pair of rubber gloves and apply some thick bleach to the grout using an old sponge, then scrub away with an old toothbrush and before long it will look like new! You can rinse the bleach off at the end with the shower head. Flutterbynight
  • Karcher Window Vacuums are amazing now that the sun is shining, showing up the grime. Crystal clean in no time at all. Rusmum
  • Buy a hand-held vacuum. I wish someone had told me how fab they are. Very easy now to clear up those biscuit crumbs or dog hair. Doogle2
  • For an easy option, sell the kids. Less mess to clear up. You might need to sell the husband too. Package him up with the children as a bundle with babysitter included, you'll get more for them that way. Indith
