YouTube is full of long, rambling monologs by would-be how-to experts; it can be tricky to find real advice devoid of self-absorbed chatter.
I went looking for some tips on spring cleaning and was immediately barraged by random musings about people’s late-winter colds, messy kids, and clothes shopping habits.
I decided to spare the rest of you my fate, so I put together a list of some of the better videos I came across. Here are some spring cleaning tips worth watching.
- “How To Prepare For Spring Cleaning” from AtHomeWithNikki is a fairly long and chatty but thorough advice session about how to organize yourself for a spring clean, including such tips as grouping tasks into pre-pollen and post-pollen categories.
- “Spring Cleaning Ellen’s Way” from TheEllenShow serves up some humor with the cleaning advice; the episode features talk-show host Ellen Degeneres offering “Ellen’s spring cleaning tips for people who aren’t as good at cleaning as I am,” and getting advice from a shirtless hunk.
- “Spring Cleaning” from Kim Danger offers some tips on decluttering using “sell,” “throw away,” and “donate” piles, including the tip to barter your unwanted stuff on mommysavers.com
