With the days getting brighter and warmer weather on the horizon, it’s the time of year that many of us begin to contemplate a total declutter and reorganisation of our homes to get us well and truly in the swing of spring.
Whether it’s a living room revamp, kitchen cupboard overhaul or a top to bottom deep clean, we have all of the tips and tools you need here at Mell Square to make this years’ spring clean the easiest one yet.
Tidy home, tidy mind!
It’s a known fact that keeping your surroundings clean, organised and clutter-free plays an important role in your mental health and general well-being, so why not use this spring as an opportunity to roll up your sleeves and make your home feel as good as new in time for spring.
If you need a kickstart in the tidying process, we find that it can sometimes be as simple as treating yourself to new cleaning products and ensuring you have all the equipment ready to go for the task at hand. Savers is a one-stop-shop for all of your cleaning product needs and is the perfect place to bag yourself some bargains on big brand names such as Dettol, Flash and Zoflora.
Additionally, Sainsbury’s is home to a wide variety of household cleaning products including a super affordable own-brand range that offers everything from washing up liquid to anti-bac wipes – the perfect ingredients for getting your Mrs. Hinch on!

Eco-conscious home improvements
Pre-loved pieces often work wonderfully in new homes. Not only is buying second-hand frequently a more affordable route to revamping your home decor, but it can be a great upcycling project for those with a creative streak and is undoubtedly a more sustainable way of refreshing your interior.
Mell Square is home to charity shops such as Barnardo’s and British Heart Foundation which are bursting with brilliant pre-loved homeware options for those looking to try something new on a budget. With all of the money spent on your purchase going to charity, shopping second-hand can be a great way to give back to some amazing causes, all whilst working towards living more sustainably. And don’t forget you can also donate any of your pre-loved items too.
