Back-to-School Cleaning Tips from the Experts at Merry Maids

As kids climb onto the big yellow school bus headed for their first day of class, make use of the extra time and clear out the summer clutter with these tips from the cleaning experts at Merry Maids.

  • Do Your Homework: Ensure that the area where your children will be doing homework is relatively noise-free, clutter-free and has proper lighting.
  • School Supplies: Designate one spot, such as the laundry room or closet for school books, bags and sports equipment. If your house does not have a lot of extra space, try using an old toy chest or bench to store your children’s school supplies. The bin can also be used to store extra notebooks, pencils and other school supplies.
  • Lunch Made Easy: Clear a space in the fridge specifically for children’s lunches, and allow them to help pack their lunch by selecting several items on the shelf. Helping them pack their lunch the night before school will reduce the rush in the morning. Washing the lunchboxes while cooking supper also cuts down on your time in the kitchen.
  • Summer Clothes: Before dragging out fall clothes, establish a summer storage bin for next year’s wear. As the weather cools, have the children throw their favorite summer duds into the storage bin. For those summer clothes that no longer fit, establish a separate bin to be given to a local charity. This will make things easier next year and will reduce clutter in the closet.
  • Re-Organize: Clear out those unused toys and organize the kids’ rooms. Take advantage of under-the-bed space by using flat plastic boxes to store sweaters, books or toys. Re-organizing the closet can be a cinch as well, using adjustable shelves and closet units.
