U of I Extension 4-H Metro Youth Development Educator Offers Spring Cleaning Tips

Have some spring cleaning to do? An educator at the University of Illinois Extension offers some tips.

The Extension’s Judy Schmidt says a good place to start is getting rid of clutter and cleaning out closets. She recommends making distinct piles for everything.

“What you want to keep and what you don’t want to keep and then thinking about whether you want to get rid of it, donate it, have it for a garage sale, or keep it in your home. Making sure you have something for garbage, recycling, donate, or sell if you will be doing that, and keep.”

Another chore to tackle is the kitchen, where Schmidt suggests checking all spices and canned good for expiration dates and deep cleaning your fridge. You can even organize recipes, designating favorites and those you want to try eventually.
