BEGINNING MY YEARLY SPRING CLEAN!!
Monday ~ both bathrooms & our bedroom have their yearly spring clean.
I wash all the bed linen & when it is dry , I fold it and pack it away among bags of lavender for the warm months. I don't remake my bed, til afternoon, I vacuum the mattress and spray it with lavender water and leave it to air.
I usually put a light chenille on my bed for spring & summer with an eiderdown folded at the end for those cool nights.
Open all the windows and let the fresh spring air flow through.
All the drawers and cupboards in the bathrooms are emptied out, washed and then the items that I want to keep are put back - all tidy so that ms*sophie can have fun messing it all back up again !!! and the hair in those drawers !! I swear there was enough to make a winter coat!
wash skirting boards with a hot water, lavender oil & pure soap mix
windows are washed and I vacuum my curtains rather than wash them. That is just too much trouble and as we don't smoke the curtains stay fresh anyhow.
scrub the showers and wash the glass screens. Scrub toilets and then wash all the floors.
remove light fittings and wash in hot soapy water.
Put the new towels and bath mats in the bathrooms with a new cake of soap
To putter ~ I usually light a few lavender tea lights - a small spring posy and just delight in how wonderful it all looks - oh ! and I always fold the toilet paper * just like in a ritzy motel
