Auspicious Dates for Spring Cleaning 2024 Lunar New Year

Spring cleaning is done to usher in a fresh start to the Lunar / Chinese New Year. It is regarded as a major practice as it symbolises getting rid of the old and welcoming the new for a smooth-sailing year ahead. Although people tend to lead busy lifestyles in the modern age, many still carry out spring cleaning before the Lunar New Year as it is an age-old tradition.

From cleaning the surroundings to washing various appliances, disassembling and washing curtains and bedding, wiping windows and washing the floor, and dusting, every family will clean their homes to welcome the arrival of the Lunar New Year. Frequently, decluttering and organization are also done to tidy up the house.

Spring Cleaning for Lunar New Year

As the Chinese characters “chen” [尘 ] and “chen” [陈] – meaning ‘dust’ and ‘old’ respectively – are homophonic, the act of removing dust is seen as a willingness to remove the old. Ancient records also revealed the practice of year-end spring cleaning. Furthermore, from a scientific point of view, maintaining household hygiene can keep your family in the pink of health.

Also, as families prepare our house for visitors during the Chinese New Year, people would want to present their house in clean, comfortable and presentable manner to welcome their friends and family.

It is deemed inauspicious for spring cleaning to be carried out during the first to fifth day of the first lunar month. Rather, cleaning should be completed before the start of the Lunar New Year. Remember to select an auspicious date for spring cleaning to ensure smooth-sailing progress. Check out the following dates to get started!
