Autumn cleaning

by - October 30, 2018


It's almost Halloween, and soon Christmas - and as much as I love warm weather and flowers, Autumn/Winter is still my most favourite time of the year. That's why I very much like to prepare my home for these seasons, including not only decorations and festive scents throughout the whole house, but also Autumn cleaning before all that. 
Autumn cleaning (for me, at least) means that I get rid of all the clutter and dirt (thanks, Zoya), so the house gets back to its most basic state, and can be prepared for the mentioned décor. I never hated house cleaning; as a child, I just didn't like it, simply because I couldn't do it on my own time. Later, after starting uni I considered it a blessing - a relaxing activity, which I could do INSTEAD of studying or working (could be called a guilty pleasure, really). So, one could say, I have a quite good relationship with house cleaning, and thus every Autumn, I am looking forward to it. This year I decided to "step up my game". If I like doing it, and especially, if I MUST (and who doesn't), why not do it with style? Quality house keeping accessories and tools are a thing, and definitely something I wanted to have, and wanted to use (now, for the rest of my life). Let's, for example, take a look at these items from Andrée Jardin: the dust pan with the brush, the ostrich feather duster, and the washing up brush set. Apart from the fact that these really look amazing, they make my house cleaning ritual much better. 
The duster was something I wanted to get a long time ago, but it became a necessity when I bought all those decorations that can't be just cleaned with a dusting cloth. The washing up brush set takes care of everything that a simple sponge can't. The dust pan is WAY better than your average dust pan, considering that it actually "touches" the floor, and one doesn't have to manoeuvre in order to do the job well. And, did I mention how good these items look??? Scrolling through the collection HERE everyone can choose their own styles and colours - I went for a more natural vibe, as you can see. Honestly, seeing and using these makes me feel like my home belongs to a home decor magazine, and I can't wait to show them to my family and friends.
Usually my Autumn cleaning ritual doesn't last more than a week, but these are all essential to the process. First, I get rid of the items I don't want (anymore). It's mostly garbage, rarely something that I can give away or sell. Then I take the items I do want to keep, and put them into boxes, cupboards, etc. (depending on their nature). I leave out only those things which I need every day. Then I start the actual cleaning process - washing up, cleaning the floors, vacuuming the carpet, getting rid of all dirt and dust. Then to cleaning the windows, shelves, washing the smaller rugs, Zoya's bed. I obviously don't forget the small things I do every day or week - washing the dishes, watering the plants, washing the clothes. At the end of all this, everything will be clean, and in a very minimal, basic state. Ready for the festivities!
