The Easter break is traditionally a time when we undertake the big Spring-clean, performing an overall tidy-up of our homes.

This means taking on a wide range of household chores, from weekly tasks such as polishing and hoovering to seasonal jobs like cleaning carpets and upholstery and clearing out the garage.

For many, spring is the season for freshening up. A fresh home, fresh mind set and fresh start as we leave behind cold nights and staying indoors. It’s time to escape your oasis of blankets and scented candles, open the curtains and begin dusting.

Maintaining a clean and tidy home is so beneficial for you and your family. As well as providing a better living space, it can help your mind feel relaxed and eager to be productive.

A clean living space will also be a lot healthier for your family. Although it doesn’t have to be sterile, a clean and dust free environment can help guard the spread of germs.

Baking soda is a household essential, known for how effectively it can tackle the most challenging cleaning situations. However, some surfaces can be sensitive to baking soda. Therefore, to keep your home in good condition, it is worth knowing when not to use baking soda.

As the song goes, Christmas really is the most wonderful time of the year. It’s the one time where your family can reunite and celebrate with delicious food, family traditions and creating new memories.

Therefore, coming together may put you in the position of becoming host to some family or friends over the holidays. However, don’t let the pressure of being a good host spoil your Christmas spirit.
