SPRING CLEANING 101

Remodeling, cleaning out, down-sizing or just getting organized? Habitat ReStore can help!

Spring is the time when we embark on a sometimes daunting indoor activity: Spring cleaning. No more putting it off until the last minute; start your spring cleaning now and partner with ReStore to donate items that will help us invest in the lives of local families.

Habitat Vail Valley ReStore receives new and gently-used donations from individuals, building supply stores, contractors, home builders, interior designers and Eagle County businesses. The list of items you can donate is considerable and includes appliances, furniture, windows, doors, lighting, tools and much more.

BENEFIT YOUR COMMUNITY

In addition to providing you with a clean and organized home, we see indirect benefits of spring cleaning at our Habitat for Humanity ReStore every day. When those donated items are sold, someone in your community gets to give your item a second life for a great price. An even further benefit is that the proceeds from the sale go towards helping a family build affordable, decent housing.

A SIMPLE SPRING CLEANING CHECKLIST FOR EVERY ROOM

BEDROOMS 
The American Cleaning Institute finds that the bedroom is the most commonly prioritized room for spring cleaning, so it seems a great place to start.

Surfaces: Examine items on all flat surfaces – the tops of dressers and nightstands, for example – and make sure the all are something you use regularly.

Closet: Take a close look at your clothes and shoes. A good rule of thumb is that if you haven’t worn it in a year, you probably won’t wear it again. The closet hanger experiment is a great way to examine how often you wear each item.

Under the Bed: You never know what’s accumulated under there – and it’s time to find out!

KITCHEN
Cabinets: Perform a thorough cabinet sweep. Match containers and lids. Take stock of the dishes you need (and those you don’t). Remove expired items and be sure to check that all spices are fresh.

Refrigerator: Clean out any old or unused items in the fridge and the freezer.

Drawers: Is the infamous “junk drawer” located in the kitchen of your house? If so, take out all items to assess what you really need.

GARAGE/BASEMENT/STORAGE UNIT
Everyone’s garage or basement or shed is different, and we’ve put them all together because what we are really referring to is the place in or around the house where extra stuff tends to pile up. This can be a closet, a finished basement, an outdoor shed or any place in between.
