The weather this time of the year is pretty changeable, but we tend to change over our winter duvets and clean and store them and replace them with our spring/summer weight ones. I also pop an extra blanket or throw on the beds for when the nights are really cold and to help the transition from winter bedding to lighter weight bedding. Now is also the time to review the state of your bedding. Perhaps your duvet or pillows are starting to show their age and it would be more economical to replace them rather than clean them. So search online for Duvet and pillow warehouse promotional code and see if you can find vouchers that make the cost less expensive.
My local laundrette offers duvet and pillow cleaning and it is much less expensive than the local dry cleaners. It only takes a couple of days and the duvet comes back all ready for me to store in the airing cupboard. By having getting it done as soon as I swap it means that it is ready to go back on and I do not have to worry. I do this for our super king sized duvet cover.
The boys single duvets are OK to go in our washer, however, I need to wait for a blowy day, so they can be line dried.
Spring cleaning shores:
Hoover the ceiling to remove any cobwebs
Swap bed linen
Clean the curtains (mine go in the wash and on the line)
Clean the inside of the windows, first wiping down the frames (I use a solution of vinegar and water for this)
Wipe down the doors, light switches and skirting boards
Clean any pictures, both the glass and the tops of the frames
Clean on top of doors and the door frame
Vacuum under the bed, chest of drawers, bedside cabinet and dressing table
Due to the fact that I am removing cobwebs etc, I may make more dust, so I also do my regular cleaning in the bedroom too.
Clean all mirrors (we have mirrored wardrobe doors)
Dust light fittings and clocks
Empty the bin
Both boys now have raised beds and need somewhere to put their books. We let both boys go to bed with a book and their lights on. We also read to them before bed, so have been thinking about what we could do. When we were in Ikea the other day MadDad had a brain wave when he saw brackets for double curtains, so this is what we made. They were really simple, but you can now see why I needed a sewing machine. We are really pleased with the end result, OK they wont hold loads of books, but then that wasn’t there purpose. The fabric was some I had more »
