Welcome to Your No-Sweat Guide to Spring Cleaning, a month-long series that puts the fun (yep, for real!) back into cleaning. We’re talking spruce-ups that take less than five minutes, why-didn’t-I-think-of-that hacks, and hands-off cleaning tasks that basically…do themselves—plus our trustiest tools and helpers. The goal: clean less, go outside more.
There are lots of ways you can make investments in your cleaning arsenal, like buying a self-emptying Roomba, finally ponying up for the Dyson stick vacuum you’ve always wanted, or getting yourself an aesthetically pleasing broom and dustpan that you feel happy leaving out. Given how much time we spend cleaning our homes (especially this year), we’re full supporters of splurging on anything that makes cleaning less painful.
