If you have a plan, your spring cleaning would not be so difficult. We are here to help you with a simple spring cleaning checklist. Once you cover the following major tasks, you’ll have your home spring-cleaned in no time.
Clean the welcome mat
Doormats are one of the dirtiest spots and definitely need a lot of attention. Give them the toughest cleaning they can take to make them welcoming.
Clean carpets and upholstery
Fabrics that have absorbed a winter’s worth of dirt, body oil, and germs will need a deep cleaning to get them ready for another year of wear.
Clean pillows, cushions and blankets
Beat them by hand to remove dust or wash them.
Wax or apply a sealer following label directions to keep your floors looking fresher.
Vacuum and wipe walls and ceilings
The walls may not look as if they need a bath. However, most of them do need a seasonal or preholiday bath.
Dust books and shelves
Take everything off the shelves and dust them all.
Wash mirrors and windows
Clean window treatments
Dust refrigerator coils and defrost the freezer
Dispose or consider donating items you no longer use
Check out your stuff for unwanted clothes, books, toys, games, etc.
Shine and protect wood furniture
Use soft cloths for that purpose.
Store winter clothes and replace with warm-weather clothes.
Clean your light fixtures
A stepladder will help a lot. Any all-purpose cleaner and a cloth will give new light to your home.
