The Big Spring Clean – with deals on all you need.

New Year heralds a serious house cleaning frenzy in many cultures, whether it’s preceding Hogmanay in Scotland, or the coming of the Year of the Horse in China. The Persian expression for spring cleaning is a particularly lovely one that literally translates as shaking the house!

Houses are deep cleaned to dispel evil spirits, or just to get rid of that lingering dirt that you know is hiding behind the sideboard, and we all feel better once we know it has been done.

In northern Europe and North America the spring clean often takes place in late March when hopefully it’s warm enough to throw open all the doors and windows, ideally with a stiff breeze to carry away the dust, but not bring more in!

Whether you want to spring clean later, or you want to start the year with a sparkling house, get along to your local Co-operative before the 21st of January and you can take advantage of the great cleaning product deals and find what you need to make the job easier.

It’s not fair for one person to do all the cleaning work on their own, so enlist the help of the whole family and share the chores. It makes the whole task quicker, and if the children have cleaned a space themselves they’re more likely to want to keep it that way for longer – now I understand why mother used to ignore my complaints and insist that I got involved!

Get behind everything, move everything you can, it may be a lot of work, but there are advantages beyond just moving the dirt.

When you move something you have the opportunity to question its value in the home. Perhaps it’s just taking up space and you’ll never use it again. If that’s the case then it might be time to pass it on to someone else, or even recycle or bin it.

In your food cupboards and freezer too you can check the use by dates on everything and set aside items that need using up soon.

You’ll find that many of the best cleaning products are available at half price before the 21st of January at The Co-operative. Here are a few to look out for:

  • Harpic for deep cleaning the loo – half price
  • Vanish Oxi-action stain remover – half price
  • Dettol Anit-bacterial sprays, and Co-operative surface wipes – half price
  • Cilit Bang Power Grime and Lime cleaner – half price
  • CIF Easy Life kitchen and bathroom sprays – half price
  • Febreeze Fabric Freshener – half price

So whether you decide to spring clean in January, or March, or just when the mood takes you, you can benefit right now from the cleaning product deals at your local Co-operative.
