It's safe to say that we always look forward to long weekends. It's an excting time for us because we get to have an extra day or two to rest, relax and recuperate for another work week. However, these quick breaks shouldn't just be spent lounging in front of the TV, you have to find a way to make it productive, too.

The best task to take on? Deep cleaning your home. You don't even have to do these all at once—feel free to choose one or two tasks and save the rest for another day!

1. Dust and reorganize your bookshelf.

If you have a huge collection of books, take the time to pull everything out of the shelves, dust what needs to be dusted and rearrange a few decor pieces when you put everything back. Aside from giving your space a mini makeover, you might just discover an old title waiting to be read.

3. Air out your mattress and flip your pillows.

4. Categorize your towels and bathrobes.

Like a bar of soap or toothbrushes, towels are quite personal and shouldn’t be shared between roommates or family members. In order to make sure that everyone is using their own, consider organizing them in separate bins and label them accordingly.

RL Tip: You can also add an extra basket or bin for towels exclusively for guests.

5. Disinfect your cleaning tools.

There’s no point in cleaning your home if you’re working with dirty tools. Allocate a few hours for rinsing sponges, washing mops, and dusting off brooms.
