Lunar New Year Spring Cleaning

Spruce up your home in time for festive visitors.



Whether or not you are going to be at
home for Chinese New Year or off to
your parents’ in neighbouring Malaysia, there
is no better time than the present to give
your home a thorough spring cleaning. Rid
your home and life of last year’s bad energy
and usher in the year of the Snake in all its
prosperous glory. Here are things to note when
cleaning your home.

1. Dusting. There is no denying that
Singapore is a very dusty city. When dusting,
ensure you move around the room in a circle
and dust objects that are higher up before
working your way down. Vacuum and mop
once you have finished dusting.

2. Curtains.
Curtains need to be cleaned at least once a
year so if you do not intend to redecorate and
buy new curtains, then ensure you clean your
curtains to keep them looking new and in
good shape. Opt to machine wash them cold
then iron them while they are still a little damp
or save some time by sending them for dry
cleaning.

3. Service your AC.
Provide ACs with chemical cleaning at least
once a year. This will ensure that all dust and
allergens are properly removed. It is especially
important to get a technician to service your
AC when it emits a bad smell and loud noise.
Try not to let it come to that!

4. De-clutter.
One of the main things to do when you
perform your annual spring cleaning is to get
rid of clutter. Throw out, recycle or donate
unnecessary items such as old clothes that you
know you will never be able to squeeze into
again, old magazines, broken and unsightly
trinkets and other random objects around the
house that you can most definitely do without.
Get rid of your hoarder tendencies and purge
everything!
