Spring Cleaning Rituals to Prepare for Summer


As we slowly approach the last month of spring, the days grow longer, and spring emerges as a season of renewal and rejuvenation. The blossoming flowers and vibrant greens symbolize new beginnings, making it the perfect time for spring cleaning and to prepare for summer’s warmth and energy. 

Spring cleaning is more than just tidying up your home; it’s a holistic ritual that can refresh your mind and spirit. Here are some spring cleaning rituals to help clear your space, setting the stage for a productive summer.

Declutter, Clean, and Donate

Start by going through each room in your home and identifying items you no longer need or use. Don’t forget your car and the garage – Surely, they also need some tidying up. Donate gently used clothes and household items to local charities or community centers. Decluttering frees up physical space and helps clear mental clutter, giving you a sense of accomplishment and peace. I’m getting rid of the Ikea kitchen plates and utensils we’ve had for so long, and they are in not-so-great condition, and so excited to bring in new sets.

I’m also investing in storage solutions to keep everything more organized. Baskets, bins, and shelves help to store items neatly, and it’s also easier to find and pack them all when you’re on the go. Labeling containers and creating designated spaces for everything makes order throughout the year easier.

Once you’ve decluttered and organized, it’s time for a deep clean. Dust, vacuum, and scrub every nook and corner of your home. Pay special attention to often-neglected areas like baseboards, windows, inside the fridge, and under furniture. A thorough cleaning removes allergens and dust, creating a healthier living environment. Prioritize using sustainable cleaning products to benefit both your health and the environment. Brands like Grove, Blueland, and Dropps offer a variety of eco-friendly cleaning solutions.

Refresh Your Decor

Update your decor to bring the energy of spring indoors. Swap out heavy textiles for lighter fabrics like linen and vibrant or pastel tones. Introduce fresh flowers and houseplants to breathe life into your space. Simple changes like new cushion covers, throws, and artwork can make your home feel fresh and inviting. Consider replacing old home essentials with sustainable options from Dorai or Ettitude and new decor items from KOTN.

Digital Detox

When it comes to technology, less is more. Just as you declutter your physical space, take time to clear out digital clutter. Organize your desktop, delete unnecessary emails and apps, and unfollow social media accounts that don’t bring inspiration, friendship, or community. Reducing digital noise can help you feel more focused and less overwhelmed.


Spring is a great time to start journaling. Reflect on the past few months, set new goals, and express gratitude. Writing down your thoughts and plans can provide a sense of direction and purpose. Intelligent Change offers various journals, like their 5-minute and mindfulness journals, to help you organize your mind and move closer to your goals.

Physical Activity

It is getting HOT outside! Embrace the warmer weather by enjoying the outdoors and moving your body. Whether it’s a light walk, a beach dip, or yoga in the park, activity boosts your mood and energy levels, helping you feel great and rejuvenated for the summer. Opt for sustainable workout clothes from brands like Hereafter and Outdoor Voices.

Spring cleaning is more than just a chore; it’s a ritual that can transform your living space and mental outlook. You create an environment that supports your well-being by decluttering, deep cleaning, and refreshing your home. Simultaneously, adopting mindful practices like gratitude journaling, healthy eating, and spending more time outdoors helps clear your mind. Embrace the symbolism of spring and get ready for an incredible summer!
