Autumn Cleaning-- 10 Tips

October 23, 2011  by: Paulose  Points: 25   Category: Health    Views: 686

October is said to be the cleaning month in autumn. The ostensible reason is the approach of the festival season. While western world gets ready for the long holiday season, eastern world also prepares for festivals like Diwali. Cleaning in the modern busy life is a very hectic task.


Middle season of autumn requires hectic cleaning. Nature gets ready for a winter rest and sheds all leaves for a fresh start. The arrival of festival season demands cleaning in and outside of the houses. In the west, long holiday season begins with Halloween, All Saints' Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas and New Year. In the east, festivals like Diwali, Durga Pooja, etc., are celebrated.

It makes the householders busy themselves in cleaning and tidying their surroundings. Another reason in the east for this cleaning is the receding monsoon season leaving behind damp, mildew and fungus formations on walls and furniture. Gardens are over laden with water-clogged puddles, with grass and plants grown everywhere.

Here are ten tips to make your autumn cleaning easier and less stressful.

1) Plan ahead

Survey the mess and plan well how to finish the cleaning work easily and perfectly. There may be things that should be disposed, things that are to be preserved for next summer, and furniture arrangement needed for the winter.

Throw out or dispose all unwanted articles which have cluttered the place in the past year. Go through the clothes closets and keep everything in order. Summer clothes can be kept separately for later use. Discard unusable things. Just think if piling up those things would be of any use.
