Though there is only one Diwali day (Oct. 19 this year), the festivities often start earlier and stretch over a five-day period. These ideas will help you make your house warm and inviting in plenty of time.Clean the public areas. Start by cleaning your living room (or at least the most visible parts of the room) and the main bathroom. Those are where you’ll get the most traffic. Move on to the kitchen, terrace or balcony and then to the other areas of your house. Dust your furniture, scrub the windows, wash your sheets and spot-clean upholstery. While you’re at it, clean your fans, light fixtures and appliances as well.
Spring cleaning focus: Textile refresh. If it’s been a while since you’ve cleaned your rugs or upholstery, this could be the right focus for you. Start by laundering small washable items, like shower curtains, cotton rugs and washable slipcovers, at home. When laundering slipcovers, try putting them back on while they’re still barely damp for a better fit.
