The spring cleaning is surely one of the most complicated, deep and specialized tasks of your house maintenance. And the worst part is that it is not a one-shot thing, but you need to take care of it every single year with the same assiduity and making even more and more efforts. And unlike the end of tenancy cleaning, when you are super certain you need help and when you trust the professionals at any price, when it is about a spring clean youspring-flowers-741965_960_720believe you can cope with it all by yourself. And no, we don’t say you cannot, but we do believe that it is neither something you need to neglect nor to underestimate. So roll up your sleeves, get a piece of paper and a pen and make a plan about everything you need to do during this so called clean-up. Do know that this cleaning is all about the details and not about the major huge things. Yeah, you will need to perfect the floor and to remove the dust, but if you are taking care of your house well enough, you will have done these otherwise, as well. And when you think of the details, there is surely one thing that is obvious, but somehow neglected. Huge, but transparent. These are the windows and their post winter condition that desperately needs intervention. So brace yourself and take a look at the three easiest steps you can cope with this cleaning part.

The Dirt

The windows are one of the dirtiest parts of your home and luckily, not their inner part, but the outer one The cars and the air pollution makes them dusty and grimy and if you only touch them, you will find out that they have accumulated too much. That is why you better start with getting rid of that dust. With a wet clout, go through the entire surface of the windows. Do it several times and you will notice that the cloth is getting less and less dirty, while the glass is getting clearer. When you are done, you can proceed with the next step.

The Perfection

You will need a strong and efficient cleaning product and a cloth, preferably a microfiber one. With its help you will not only clean the glass itself, but you will leave no traces and make it shine. The windows will sparkle and the view will be back to normal. When you are drinking your

morning cup of coffee, you will be able to enjoy the sunshine and it will be worthy.

The Completeness

And even when you have perfected the windows, you need to end up your cleaning with another component closely connected with this part of the house – the curtains. Because if you have washed the glass only, but never the curtains, they will make the windows look not so well and the entire cleaning will seem incomplete. And after making your best, this is the last thing you would like.

Create a Charming Little Picnic Space at Home

You have an empty room at home? You have a tiny little space in the attic or elsewhere and you are wondering what to do with it? Another sofa with a coffee table seem too random and even boring. Turning it into a bedroom is somehow pointless and not that practical, as you will use one bed only. Creating another playroom for the kids, when they have their own and in addition have occupied a great part of your living room. Neither of these sounds like a good idea and neither of this is in reality, as well. You need something creative. You need a place that will take you out of the everydayness and will bring you into another lovelier, calmer and problem lacking reality. But what should it be? How to create this place of your dreams? And what is it indeed? Luckily, you need creativity and you don’t millions. You need the desire to make things and you need to use your imagination. And what you could create, what could save your stressful evenings and days full of tasks, what could bring you to a fairytale world and where you can chill, relax and dream on, is that picnic spot in your house.

The Basis

What you need for a picnic. The few essentials that you bring into the wild, into the park, on the beach or in this case at home, are simple, but adorable. A big blanket or why not a couple should be nicely spread all around the floor. Then on the top, better arrange cushions and pillows over the blankets. The more of them the better. You will lay on the floor and these things will make the experience cozier and much more comfortable. The good news is that these won’t cost you too much and what is even better, you can choose an orient pattern and have the feeling you are in Abu Dhabi or in a desert somewhere, while you are upstairs at home.picnic-977866_960_720

The Details

What else can make this place even nicer? First are the candles. You need more of them and you need to spread them nicely, but wisely, as well. After all, you dream of an unforgettable experience, but it does not include a fire, right? Another thing you may consider is a little coffee table – somewhere, to put serve the brunch or the dinner on. A place you can put the glasses

full of wine, while you are lying next to each other, talking, dreaming, inspiring.

The Atmosphere

You need no lights. In the night it will be the candles only, which will surely remind you of a bonfire. Early in the morning you could wake up from the sunshine and enjoy the beams falling over. But one thing more that could make the experience even better is the music. You need it, but you need not you phones, laptops, and everything connected with the reality. So find an old music source and desire.
