With winter slowly turning into spring, it’s a great time of year to clean out your home. A nice top-to-bottom tidy can rid your place of stale air, dust and clutter you may have accumulated during those long, cold winter months. While the concept of spring cleaning can seem daunting, breaking it down into smaller tasks can make it easier. Refresh your home this spring with some helpful tips from Oxford Properties and your Toronto PATH retailers.
Upgrade your products
First things first: you may need to upgrade your supplies. While most products should be fine to last a while, there may be things you’re missing or new products you’ll want to try. Head to Richmond-Adelaide Centre or MetroCentre and visit Rexall, where they’ll be sure to have the latest in cleaning products for your convenience. You can visit Shoppers Drug Mart in Royal Bank Plaza for more options, as well.
Spring cleaning also means decluttering your old, worn out kitchenware and appliances that barely work anymore. Head to Cook It in MetroCentre for some of the latest in kitchen supplies, just in case it’s finally time to throw out that old rusted frying pan.
Clean out your kitchen
Possibly the most important spring cleaning task of all, make sure to do a thorough clean-out of your fridge and pantry. Get rid of any food that may be expired or cluttering up your shelf space, like old tea or coffee, and replace them with fresh varieties. If you want to shake things up, upgrade your normal tea with some eclectic flavours from DavidsTea in Royal Bank Plaza. More of a coffee drinker? Treat yourself to a few bags of Starbucks coffee to keep in your cupboard, which you can find at any Starbucks location in MetroCentre, Richmond-Adelaide Centre, and Royal Bank Plaza. An added bonus of this is less money spent ordering your daily Starbucks latte!
If you’re looking to do a health refresh, throw out all of your processed and junk food and replace them with healthy snacks. Olly Fresco’s in Royal Bank Plaza and MetroCentre Market Place are great places to look for nutritious alternatives to the junk food you’ve been stocking up on all winter.
Freshen up your space
Nothing says spring like fresh cut flowers! Head to Tidy’s Flowers at Richmond-Adelaide Centre for the most aesthetically pleasing arrangements for your home. If you’re looking to brighten your space without completely redecorating, this is a great option to immediately revitalize a room. Pair it with some stylish throw blankets and pillows from Indigo in Royal Bank Plaza for an elevated look and feel.
If you need one last thing to rejuvenate your household, opt for a diffuser and a refreshing essential oil blend to wake up the senses. Escents in Royal Bank Plaza has a variety of blends sure to make your home feel light and clean. We recommend the Energy blend or Detoxify. Cook it, in MetroCentre, also carries Lampe Berger diffusers and a variety of scents.
Get ahead of the housing market
Looking to buy or sell your home? Spring is the perfect opportunity to do so after cleaning up your space and organizing all of your financial paperwork. This is a busy time in the housing market, so check out True North Mortgage in MetroCentre for all mortgage-related services including Purchase Plus Improvements, refinancing options, vacation/summer homes, etc.
Springtime is the perfect opportunity to clean out the clutter accumulated over winter and to start anew. With the help of Oxford Properties and your Toronto PATH retailers, your home can feel fresh and clean in no time!
