I love spring cleaning – there is something about opening the windows to let in the fresh air while you clean up your house and get rid of all of those winter germs. I wanted to create a spring cleaning checklist for you and share a few of my favorite cleaning tips. I hope that you find it to be helpful!
The five main spring cleaning things that I work on are:
2- Cleaning the floors really well
3- Cleaning the cabinets (inside and out)
4- Cleaning the windows
5- Scrubbing the blinds/shutters
- My tip for cleaning the floor is to really scrub it with a good mop.
I see so many people making the mistake of going over the floor without using a good mop. A mop that works well, plus some elbow grease will do the trick to get all of those stubborn marks off of the ground. The O-Cedar’s EasyWringTM Spin Mop & Bucket System eliminates is a great choice for this.
- I also clean the cabinets every spring. I take a magic eraser and scrub them… I then follow up with a good wood oil to put back in anything that I’ve removed. I would follow what works for your cabinets.
- For our windows, I take the screens out and wash them. I then was the window sills and each of the windows (inside and out). I find that a squeegee works very well for our windows. I use it every time that I clean them. I always clean the window sills because it makes such a big difference. I clean the corners with a cotton swab. I clean the shutters of every window after I am finished with the window and have replaced the screen.
- Spring is a great time for deep cleaning. You are welcome to download my spring cleaning checklist.
