STORE ROOM Lagerabteile Selfstorage

The Corona virus has the world on tenterhooks and Austria, like many other countries, has been in a state of emergency for a good two weeks. Instead of welcoming spring with friends and a cool beer outdoors, Vienna resembles an empty movie set in times of curfew. For many people, this is a heavy mental as well as physical burden. For this reason, it is important to look for employment opportunities within one’s own four walls. A tidy spring cleaning is suitable here particularly well, because Cleaning makes as proven happyand promotes mental well-being. To get the most happiness out of your therapeutic quarantine cleaning, we’ve got a few tips for you:

  1. Plan the cleaning day in advance

Create a cleaning plan in advance, in which you list the order of the rooms and the items and areas to be cleaned there. This way you avoid overlooking important things and checking off areas that have been cleaned is especially fun!

  1. Be creative and do not just clean the usual

Really stretch your brain cells while you’re still creating your cleaning schedule about what all can go on the list. From electronic devices, hairbrushes, the Bicycle to the running shoes, there are countless things in the household that are rarely cleaned, but definitely need it.

  1. Clean from top to bottom

Always start cleaning at the top, such as lamps or shelves, and work your way down. Floors always come last, as dust and dirt are most likely to collect there when cleaning other objects.

  1. The right cleaning utensils are important, in an emergency it also works with the T-shirt

For an extensive spring cleaning, the right cleaning utensils are crucial. Your standard equipment should include:

  • Vacuum cleaner
  • Floor mop with bucket
  • Plastic gloves for drain and toilet
  • Microfiber cloth for sensitive surfaces and windows
  • Brush for stubborn places like grout in the bathroom
  • Cleaning sponge for about dishes
  • feather duster for surfaces such as shelves, televisions and lamps

If you do not find all this at home and want to save yourself the currently rather risky trip to the supermarket, there are of course alternatives for those who like to improvise:

  • Old toothbrush for grout, dirty dishes or hard-to-reach places
  • Old cotton T-shirt instead of the cleaning cloth
  • Attach silk cloth to a stick to wipe off dust

  1. Deep cleaning is the order of the day for spring cleaning

Really go deep in the quarantine cleaning, because you have enough time. Clear out the fridge, shelves, cupboards and shutters really completely and clean to the last corner. Often, you’ll even find lost treasures in the process…or that moldy strawberry yogurt from 2018.

  1. Household remedy instead of industrial cleaner

If you don’t have any cleaning agent at home and would rather not leave the house in times of Corona, you can make your own all-purpose cleaner with a few simple ingredients. In addition, you not only save money, but also protect the environment. All it takes:

  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp grated curd soap
  • 1 squeeze lemon juice
  • 1 cup warm water
  • Optional essential oil such as lavender for a pleasant scent

Mix the ingredients well by stirring and pour into a spray bottle if available. Whether in the bathroom, kitchen or even on windows, dirt can now be removed easily and in a completely natural way. Here you will find more great recipes to make yourself!

  1. Before and after photos

The joy of a successful spring cleaning only really comes into its own when you see the result in front of your eyes. The best way to do this is to take pictures of your home before and after cleaning and compare the images. If you no longer recognize your apartment, you’ve done everything right! 😀

  1. Motivate your roommates

If you have children, a partner or live in a shared apartment, motivate your roommates to tackle this project together. As a group, you not only have more fun with the thing, but can also help each other. The time-saving factor is probably rather negligible under current circumstances 😉.

  1. With the right cleaning playlist it’s a lot easier

A cleaning day is not a cleaning day if it is not accompanied by motivational music at full volume. The broom swings a lot easier when you’re dancing. On Spotify or also YouTube you will find countless ready-made playlists if you don’t have any yourself.

  1. Discover the Marie Kondo in you

Spring cleaning isn’t just about removing dirt, it’s about really sprucing up your home and bringing back more order in your life in your life again. Clean out your closet, rearrange your desk, clean out your shelves, the possibilities are many.
