Make A Spring Cleaning Checklist

Methodically tackling the tasks that plague your household is the only way to handle spring cleaning. Otherwise, you’ll be running around the house in a panic without getting anything done efficiently.

When we say “spring cleaning,” we mean everything. From taking a microfiber cloth and going over a few surfaces to the alchemical combination of hot water and dish soap, or using vinegar to remove stains. We also mean the big stuff — your gutters, your air conditioning, the condition of your deck, your walls, and your roofing.

Now Is The Perfect Time To Start

Tackle the big things first, then move on to the little things. Decluttering before you clean can be a valuable first step, though you don’t have to feel like you need to organize everything. From the laundry room to the living room, you know what to do!

Warm water and a bit of dishwashing liquid or soap can wash the majority of dirt off the exterior of your house, which goes a long way in maintaining its longevity.

Spring Cleaning Tips For Everyone

Maintaining your HVAC system is essential to keeping the quality of air that you deserve. Clean the condenser and replace any filters in your air purifiers to remove dust.

Caulk windows and doors to prevent leaks that lead to costly repairs. You don’t even need a professional’s help to do this!

You’re Telling Me I Can Bake With This Soda?

White vinegar in the bathroom can prevent mold, while baking soda can be used to freshen the mattress in your bedroom, as well as to clean and get rid of stains in your shower.

There’s honestly something to do in every room, even if it’s just cleaning your ceiling fans or wiping dust off the blinds. We can even recommend a tutorial for cleaning stainless steel if your appliances are a little dirty.

Don’t Forget To Donate Any Excess

While you focus on decluttering, you’ll probably find that you don’t need everything you come across. But wait, don’t just toss stuff into a trash bag and forget about it! Donate to a local charity if you can. Generous hearts are what make the world go ’round.
