6 Tips for Vacuuming Your Home

Because there always comes a time when you need to literally empty your home to breathe better and find precious square meters, follow our 5 tips to get rid of the superfluous and thus unclutter your interior.

You have to face the facts: your propensity to keep everything starts to become problematic. Piles of unidentified clothes, papers and belongings are piling up in your house, and you no longer know where to turn. You may even have trouble finding certain things or you can no longer reach certain areas of your home. It’s time to act ! Because if after a while you can’t even see the bazaar piling up, it certainly causes you latent stress and pumps up your energy. So find an interior full of serenity where everything is organized and in its place, and in which it is good to live, thanks to 6 storage tips very easy to set up.

1. Don’t do it all at once

First advice and not the least: do not try to tidy everything up at home all at once. It will surely be impossible anyway, unless you really don’t have a lot of stuff to sort through, and that will only discourage you. You will give up in full storage and would start from scratch, or almost.

Instead, aim for small sessions every day or weekend, of 15 or 20 minutes, which, because you will finish them, will motivate and encourage you to continue.
You can also start by storing a drawer, a shelf or a piece of furniture: realistic objectives that you will be proud to achieve.

2. Don’t wait for the perfect moment

As often in life, we would like there to be a moment perfectly suited to each of our actions. Since this is generally not the case, take the lead and create this moment: storage is now!
Finish reading this article and start then; afterwards, nothing can stop you.

3. Getting organized

Help yourself in this task that you have been rejecting for so long by organizing yourself to the maximum. Easier to write than to do, it’s true, especially when you have a basic organizational problem, but rest assured, it’s simply a matter of storing your interior effectively .

To do this, bring different bags or baskets to list what you will be able to give, throw in the trash, recycle, classify, repair, or even store in the cellar or attic. Also provide a bag for things that do not belong to the room you are storing, in order to put them in the right place.

This sorting in your business will help you see more clearly and will motivate you to take the next step, that is to say, to take care of the content of these different bags and baskets.

4. Proceed piece by piece

Again, do not try to tidy everything up at home at the same time: you would risk scattering yourself and wasting time trying, for example, to replace each item found in its original room, to ultimately feel overwhelmed and no longer be able to continue.
Start with one piece and finish tidying it up before tackling another.

Our advice? Start this storage session in your bedroom, a real alcove that should not cause any stress on your part, to always offer you optimal rest. First put your bedside table in order by eliminating the superfluous, then your chest of drawers and any shelves. Then tackle your wardrobe or dressing room, where the greatest sorting will be done. Because, you know, we are all the same: our wardrobe is packed but we never have anything to wear!
Take a lot of time if necessary but critically analyze your different clothes, underwear, accessories, shoes and bags to keep only the essentials.

And for fetish outfitsthat you have left, the ones you absolutely cannot do without, you will have to pamper to keep them as long as possible. We think of the essential softener Soupline, which will make your favorite clothes not only softer to the touch but also more resistant, for an extended lifespan. Yep!

Do the same for each room, piece of furniture by piece of furniture, zone by zone; try to observe each place with an external gaze to better see the bazaar that perhaps you do not see any more precisely.

5. Ask yourself the right questions

And each time, for each pile of business, each object , we will have to ask the right questions, the questions that may be a little angry. Yes, it will take time, but for a successful spring cleaning, to really empty your home, it will be absolutely necessary.

It is not a question of living in a completely minimalist environment if it is not your goal, but to appreciate all the material things which surround you, to choose them and never to undergo them. Because it is one thing to want to keep an object that reminds you of a good memory, but it is another to want to keep everything , “just in case”.

We take the example of the famous Marie Kondo, the storage specialist, and for each of our cases, we wonder if this object gives us pleasure or is useful to us.
Have you used it this year or do you plan to use it? If it is broken or damaged, is it worth fixing it and will it be useful to you at that time?

Take a deep breath and let go of all those things that are bothering you and that you never took the time to throw away or give away. This question will certainly seem difficult to you at first, but over time you will be faster and faster and will gain confidence to get rid of everything you do not really need.
Come on, it’s up to you!

6. Pamper what we keep

Emptying yourself, as we told you, does not necessarily consist of making a clean sweep over your business. The main thing is to keep the furniture, objects and clothes that matter most to us.
And by distinguishing these material goods from others, give yourself the means to make them last. Do they matter to you? So take care of them!

So, polish your wooden furniture, raise the base (footboards, casters, etc.) so that they are not damaged by blows.

Do you care about your household linen? You want to keep those clothes you love, we agree with you! Besides, do you have any pleasure in bringing out vintage pieces, from a parent for example?

To fetish outfits and linen, special care must be taken in order to keep them longer. Protect them from dust and mites, be sure to wash them with products suitable for their fibers, and don’t forget to use a fabric softener, which does good to textiles.
