Summer Home Refresh

Summer is here! The kids were home a little earlier than expected and with so many activities put on hold we have our top 5 recommendations to prep for summer home cleaning and organizing and ease the stress of managing our households amidst the season we are in. We may not have as many organized activities to attend, however we are still getting out a little more so being prepped for the summer months, while still managing the coronavirus concerns, adds another layer to getting organized this year.

Here are some places you can focus on cleaning and organizing to prep for summer!

Car

Swap winter weather items such as winter accessories, ice scrapers, and warm blankets and replace with umbrellas, sunscreen and bug spray! For a full list of ideas and a Car Kit see the full list here:

Once you have the essentials set and ready, consider what you need to keep the sanitation strong when away from home. Consider adding a sanitation bin with hand sanitizer/wipes, Clorox wipes, masks, and bags for anything needing to be contained until cleaned at home.

Toys

It’s always a good time at the change of season to edit through toys and get rid of unnecessary items your kids do not play with anymore. We know this is hard for them to do, so have your kids find 5 things to pass along and replace with 1 fun summer toy of their choice.

Kitchen

Kids' dishes, utensils and cups should be placed in a location they can access. Or better yet assign a daily cup (maybe with their name on it) for each child they can refill as needed. Sippy cups and water bottles often have parts needed to function. We recommend sticking to one brand and storing all pieces needed close together.

“I cannot recommend Karen Swart and her team enough! We were in the Kansas City area for a full summer, filming “The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning,” and Karen and her team were our behind the scenes death-cleaner helpers! They helped our Death Cleaners move quickly, efficiently, and thoroughly through people’s homes - and they did it with heart. Thank you, Karen! Stay Gentle!”
