“Spring Cleaning” means out with the old and in with the new! That means it’s less about actually cleaning, and more about organizing and decluttering. Come springtime, most people dread the thought of spending hours or even days cleaning and organizing. Cut your Spring Cleaning time in half by getting the actual cleaning out of the way early! And, as a bonus, having a wonderfully clean home will motivate you to declutter, organize, and embrace your spring cleaning! Here are 10 ways to pre-clean before your spring clean.
1. Get rid of dust so you can actually see all of your knick-knacks and stuff
When your stuff is covered in dust, it can be hard to see what you actually own—meaning it can be hard to decide what to get rid of and what’s worth keeping. Getting rid of dust from shelves, tables, and in between knick knacks on the bookshelves is a great starting point for pre-spring cleaning. Our Bright Idea: Use an electric or motorized duster like the Hurricane Spin Duster to make pre-spring dusting quick, easy, and fun! The super-soft bristles and rotating head attract and trap dust to leave you with a sneeze-free clean.
2. Spring Cleaning is the perfect time to get rid of those old messes covering your floors
Sweep away the last bits of winter to welcome spring! Clean floors are quite literally the foundation of a clean house—and the perfect place to start when pre-cleaning for spring. Our Bright Idea: Cut your sweeping time in almost half without the painful bending and stretching. Hurricane Spin Broom works almost like a vacuum: the rotating bristles pick up dirt, crumbs, and other messes and collects everything in the convenient collection bin that empties with the touch of a button.
3. Don’t Stop Now! Time to Finish Off Those Floors
We’ve already established that clean floors are the foundation for a clean home. Sweeping is great for picking up crumbs, dirt, and other debris. But, your floors aren’t truly clean until they receive the full mop treatment! Our Bright Idea: Stay away from regular mops that just push around dirty water—your floors will never truly be clean that way! Hurricane Spin Mop’s unique mop bucket and washable mop head mean you have a clean mop every time. Say goodbye to dirty floors!

Cleaning the bathroom is never any fun, but it has to be done. Yes, really. Our Bright Idea: Get every inch of your shower or bathtub squeaky clean. The Hurricane Spin Scrubber uses high-powered rotation and extra-tough scrubbing power to spin away every bit of caked-on grime!

5. …And Clean Those Spaces You Always Seem to Forget
Like the vents in your dryer! The first part of spring cleaning is usually switching over from winter to warm-weather clothes and linens. If you’re anything like me, your washer and dryer get a big workout come spring cleaning time getting the staleness out of your spring clothes.

Our Bright Idea: Our Lizard Cam micro-inspection camera lets you inspect your drains on a high-def screen. And, the hook attachment can help grab onto and remove whatever’s clogging your drain.
