Guide to a Household Daylight Savings Routine

Daylight savings time can easily become the start of your spring cleaning each year! It’s an easy way to remember to do these items around the house… “It’s daylight savings time. Let me grab your honey-do list”!

  • Vacuum your mattress. Sprinkle baking soda on it first before to remove any dust or odor. After that, I will use this linen spray.
  • For a seasonal change, swap out heavier winter velvet drapes with lighter summer curtains. Spot clean or wash curtains, drapes, and blinds as needed.
  • Wash your rugs and shampoo the carpets. I know many people nowadays are not putting any carpet down in their homes. We have carpet in our closet and two of the bedrooms.
  • Take some extra time to thoroughly clean your basement, garage, and attic. Focus on deep cleaning these areas and making sure everything is properly organized and stored.
  • Consider switching out your winter wardrobe for spring attire! Although it may still be chilly in Missouri for a couple more weeks, you can still keep out your favorite two or three sweaters. Additionally, if you’re starting your spring cleaning, now is a great time to try the four-box technique.

📦 Keep 📦 Donate 📦 Sell 📦 Trash

  • This is one rule I like to follow when clearing out the closet. If you did not wear it at all this season and had the opportunity to, it is time to get rid of it.
  • Change the rotation of your ceiling fan. With just a simple adjustment, you can take control of your home’s climate and optimize your comfort no matter the season. By setting your ceiling fan to rotate clockwise during winter and counter-clockwise in spring and summer, you can harness the power of air circulation and create a space that feels just right. Don’t underestimate the impact of a small change – you have the power to transform your home into a haven of comfort and energy efficiency.
  • Stay prepared and safe this spring tornado season by ensuring that your first aid kit is up to date. Remember, a little preparation can go a long way in maintaining your safety and peace of mind. So have your emergency preparedness kit ready!
  • Check your smoke/carbon monoxide detectors and change the batteries in them. Check the fire extinguishers to confirm they are in good working order.
  • Check the flashlights you keep on each floor of your home to ensure the batteries work in case of loss of power. Don’t get caught in the dark!
