We're fans of the 'seasonal' clean. That's summer, autumn, winter, and of course, spring. As each new season makes its entrance, we always find it refreshing to give our homes a bit of a blitz. We have a clear-out, ridding our lives of unnecessary 'stuff', and then we spend some quality time with our cleaning cupboards to make sure our homes get the treatment they deserve.
This doesn't necessarily mean a head-to-toe, full-on cleanse. If we have the time (and the energy) then great. But rather making sure that a few times a year we give some much-needed attention to the areas of the homes that are often forgotten with the weekly clean. The big jobs, the fiddly ones, the ones that we put off but make the world of difference when they’re spick and span. Hello backs of sofas, window panes and neglected pots and pans.
So to coincide with the launch of our Chichester laundry room collection, we thought it might be rather sweet to compose a handy guide focusing on all things traditional and have looked to the past to amass our top ten vintage cleaning hacks. We asked parents, we called grandmas and grandpas, we discussed with friends, and we called on Google. Sometimes the old-fashioned ways are the best.
