Spring Cleaning Made Easy

Spring Cleaning Made Easy

Ah, it’s that time again! The birds are chirping and the sun is shining. It’s the perfect opportunity to give your home a good old fashioned spring cleaning… let’s declutter and start fresh! While many of us work hard to keep our homes clean all throughout the year, it’s a good idea to set aside time to do a deep clean every once in a while.

While this can seem like an overwhelming task, it’s truly pretty simple! Let us walk you through the steps. We’ve created a guide, or task list for each room to give you an idea of where to start in your spring cleaning journey!

Step 1: Declutter

Never underestimate the power of decluttering! There’s nothing worse than having a home that feels cluttered, typically by things we never seem to use. It can do your mental health and overall stress level wonders to simply get rid of the things that aren’t serving you anymore. 

So, before any of the actual “cleaning” starts, grab a few bags and go through your entire home, getting rid of anything that doesn’t bring value, purpose or joy to your life. Donate what you can, and throw out the rest! 

Once the decluttering is out of the way, let’s take it room by room, starting in the kitchen!

Step 2: Kitchen Tasks

  • Sweep or vacuum behind and underneath appliances
  • Clean the inside of your oven, microwave and fridge
  • Reorganize fridge and pantry, throwing out expired food
  • Use stainless steel cleaner on appropriate surfaces

Step 3: Bedroom Tasks

  • Flip mattresses
  • Vacuum in all those hard to reach places
  • Dust shelves
  • Wash and dust windows, baseboards and fans.
  • Go through closet and donate what is no longer worn
  • Shake out rugs
  • Wash bedding

Step 4: Bathroom Tasks

  • Scrub showers and bathtubs
  • Scrub sinks, toilets and countertops
  • Go through toiletries, reorganizing and throwing out what is not needed
  • Wash (or replace) shower curtains and bath mats
  • Wash trash cans

Step 5: Living Room Tasks

  • Vacuum furniture 
  • Replace air filters
  • Wash blankets and pillows
  • Dust shelves and frames
  • Wash and dust windows, baseboards and fans.

We hope this spring cleaning guide helped you give your home a much needed refresh!
