The new year just rolled in and the rush of the holiday season is slowly wearing off for most people. The first few weeks are usually quiet since this is the perfect time to transition to a new beginning. If there’s one more thing to love about the new year, it’s the idea that it presents itself as a chance to finally clear out the clutter and get a fresh start.
With all the holiday preparations that went on and all the Christmas decorations that were taken out of storage, the whole house can still be disorganized right now. In the spirit of new beginnings, it’s time to start the year with a few tips to keep in mind for an effectively decluttered home:
- Declutter each space in the house
Focus on cleaning out one room at a time to ensure that nothing gets randomly relocated again. Let go of items that no longer serve its purpose, such as clothes that don’t fit anymore, or tupperwares that do not have matching lids. The key to successful decluttering is to make sure that everything has a home and its own designated spot.
When it comes to cleaning and decluttering specific areas, it’s best to work from the inside out. Start with the bedrooms upstairs or in the innermost part of the house then eventually to the garage or storage area which is usually located at the entrance. Going around each space should not be much of a trouble anymore thanks to the lightweight and ergonomic design of the Samsung Jet Cyclone Stick Vacuum that can clean various types of floors easily. With its Digital Inverter Motor, it can generate a suction power of up to 150W—ensuring every nook and corner of the house dust free and spotless. Cleaning also won’t be as straining for the body since the length of the pipe is adjustable. The vacuum has a long-lasting battery that can last for up to 40-minute use but it’s also easily removable, and can be charged directly with the Z Station Charging Stand.
The Jet Cyclone Stick Vacuum is also very powerful on carpets and hard floors. With its Turbo Action Brush, fine dust particles can be gone in no time. The brush rotates around 3,750 times a minute, and its 180 degree swivel head makes changing cleaning direction easier and more convenient than ever. It even has other types of brushes that are perfect for different kinds of surfaces.
- Sort it all out
Some items that are no longer needed in the house can still be in good enough condition to sell to a friend or donate to a local charity. To easily determine this, set up boxes that each have a Donate, Sell, and Throw label and carefully assess each item before tossing it in.
The clothes, bedsheets, and towels that will be sold or donated should be cleaned first to ensure safety and cleanliness. The Samsung Combo Washer Dryer has an AirWash Technology that deodorizes and sanitizes different kinds of clothes, so they always smell fresh. With just super-hot air, unpleasant odors, bacteria and allergens are removed without boiling or using chemicals. And when the SmartThings App is in use, the Cloud Cycle feature can even recommend better washing performance for specific items or situations through the Laundry Recipe. And should there be any forgotten clothes, the Add Wash™ feature allows extra clothes to be easily popped in and added in the ongoing wash cycle.
- Fully commit to a clean home
The new year is also the best time to form new routines to stay organized for the rest of the year. Decluttering the house after all the holiday chaos is the first step to a truly fresh beginning and the next is maintaining it.
A new routine could be going on scheduled trips to the grocery and only purchasing the items on the list or allotting one day at the end of each week to complete all household chores, such as organizing the desk and sweeping the floors. Or set a date every six months to clean the closet and check on the items that are unused and unworn to free up space.
With the Samsung AirDresser, clothes can also be cleaned while other tasks are being completed for an effective chore day. Using its JetSteam feature that gets rid of bacteria, viruses, or allergens, clothes, and even plush toys, will be sanitized in no time. This is done by infusing high-temperature steam into the fabric. The AirDresser also has a Deodorizing Filter that freshens clothes by breaking down the particles of odors caused by sweat, tobacco, and food.
At the end of the day, the home will be clean, sanitized, and clutter-free.
Following these simple tips will result in a newly cleaned and organized home, which is a great way to welcome the new year.
