Easy Diwali Home Cleaning Tips

The festival of lights, brightness and happiness is upon us! Go into each corridor and you get a lovely aroma of freshly made sweets, bright coloured paints and crisply ironed clothes.
Well, a neat and clean looking home is always welcoming to the Gods during Diwali. So in the midst of reaching out, it is time to get your home organised for the festivities.

Release Clutter

Diwali time is family time. But alas, over the current year homes have got smaller and smaller due to the hoarding mentality. Humans get attached to inanimate objects, one reason being, they have paid so much for it, it can be used by someone else later. Good clothing bought for a family occasion is now lying deep inside the cupboard. It was only used once. Mom may have stocked few of her masalas over a period of time, which has stained the cabinets, and old jars are now turning yellow. It is best practice to keep a few and chuck out the rest. You’ll find more space, cleaner cabinets and a sweeter celebration, that is GUARANTEED!

Vaccum and Floor Cleaning

However good you’re at cleaning and making your home spotless before Diwali, dust settles. Dust is the worst enemy and a real task to get rid of. A quick use of the vaccum cleaner over your carpet, sofa and other décor will maintain your cleanliness and a simple way to get your home organization in place. Of course, once you’re done with that, a full sweep of the house followed by swabbing is recommended, to kill the germs and make your house glisten like natural diyas.

Start Decorating

Now with all the muck taken away after hours of hard work, it is time to add life to your home. Take out your décor boxes from the attic or storage room and begin. Everyone is tech savvy these days, and e-commerce sites are attracting a lot of buyers with great deals. Make use of that, get in the new & do away with the old. The freshly bought bedsheets and curtains will bring a feeling of newness and life into your house. Set your diyas and rangoli art at the foot of your entrance and in smaller comfortable corners. They will definitely add light to your beautiful homes. Add Diwali decals to your freshly painted walls, give it a personality. Dress your sofas with new prints. There is so much one can do! A little bit of imagination and a whole lot of madness.

Are you the colour coordinated type?

Colour coordination is one of the coolest ways to get your things organised and have fun at the same time. Colour has an association with us human beings. You could have a favourite colour that translates into your clothes, stationary, shoes, bags and so on. By applying this principle to your daily work processes, you can work faster and reduce stress.

Did you know most organisation gurus claim that using color is the most effective way of learning prioritisation and organisation? So to enhance your workspace or home space, use the colour coordination technique and watch it organise itself in ways you could have never imagined.

Take note.

However smart and bright you’re as a person, information comes in at a speed of light and it is very difficult to remember and process it. But now with colour, everything has fallen into line. Using colour to when jotting down important notes, for e.g. red means urgency, blue means that task can be pushed a little further.

File in, file out.

Adding a color strategy to a filing system is an enhancement that saves time in both retrieving and filing information. This can be especially helpful when dealing with large file categories such as clients, vendors or product lines. With the help of the colour, you compartmentalise your shelves or drawers which helps you navigate easily and saves you a lot on time.

Coloured closet.

Organising your closet by colour not only creates a look of organisation in your closet but it can also help you to identify where you have items in the most colour and the least colour. When it comes to colors, you have to decide individually what works best for you based on the season, how you wear them and how accessible you need them.

Office, office.

Adding even a little color to your office is sure to improve not only function at work but is likely to improve your confidence. You feel better when you can quickly locate what you need and can spend your time on tasks instead of looking for things.

The library.

Very often we organise our novels and comic books based on the genre or the times we have read it. But what if we re-organised it based on colour. Organising books by colour gives a unique look to any space. When you, group your books by shades and hues , that space now becomes your style.

The medication colourisation.

Mixing up medications is a big worry, especially with several family members sharing a medicine cabinet or if anyone in the household has bad eyesight. To keep pills separated by type or family member, try sticking a product with colour. For e.g. your dad’s red, mom likes green. So place your parents medicine in the cabinet under the specific colour and they wouldn’t miss a pill.
