KEEP YOUR HOME SPARKLING LONG AFTER SPRING CLEANING

Apr 24, 2014

Keep Your Home Sparkling Long After Spring Cleaning

You're finally finished with that big spring clean. Winter items are tucked away and your closets are refreshed with warm-weather clothes. The entire home smells fresh; tabletops sparkle; everything is in its place. But...for how long?

After an exhaustive spring cleaning, we may be tempted to sit back and rest on our laurels for the forseeable future, but that's a mistake. Dirt, dust, and clutter will accumulate...again; the results of all your hard work will be rendered temporary instead of long-lasting; and the negative effects will be felt in more ways than one. "A clean space is a happy space," says Ayanna White, owner and operator of the New York-based cleaning service Sista' Scrub. "Your home should be an oasis full of calmness and order." We agree! We asked Ayanna for her advice on keeping that spring-cleaned feeling all year 'round. Click through the slideshow above for her expert tips.
