During the 1st part of Covid, we decided to venture into lots of DIY home improvement since we had the time on our hands. Turns out home improvement during the pandemic was at an all-time high. I think we were all a little stir crazy and were tired of looking at the same 4 why not remove a wall or 2.

Here are a few easy things to both keep you busy and improve your home during Covid.

Get your Garden in shape
Weather permitting it is a great time to get your garden in shape and ready for both spring and summer planting. It is the perfect time to clean up debris, weed, and make a plan on what to plant. Are you doing to plant flowers, fruits, and vegetables? Why not all of these things! This is a great project to work on as a family, get out of the house, and reap some great rewards for all your hard work.

Organize your Closet or Garage
I will admit it! I am the world's worst about holding on to things I will never use again. I will stick it in our closet or storage building to never be seen again. So why not use this time to go through that clutter and list it for sale or donate it. These kinds of projects give me a major sense of accomplishment when it is done. This would also be a great time to install a closet organizer.

Over All Cleaning
Gasp....I know that hurts my feeling too. But why not? Start at the floor and work your way up - sweep, dust, vacuum, and mop everything. Don't forget to also remove those Christmas decorations. When cleaning your home, follow the rule of three. Clean the surface first. Next, apply disinfectant, let it sit for several seconds or minutes, then finish off by wiping the surface with a clean, dry towel or disposable wipes. Start from one corner, and work your way to the other side of the room. Don’t forget to put new things back in their place and close all those open doors or drawers; that’s where dust will collect.

The most important rule of all is to wear safety gear when using disinfectants and cleaning products. Besides being anti-bacterial, cleaning products can also be abrasive to your skin. It is almost a necessity that you have gloves with you when you start cleaning. Durable disposable gloves or puncture-resistant black nitrile gloves protect you from all the dirt and contaminants that might cause infections or other health problems. Cleaning goes a long way to freshen up the look of your home.
