Make the Most out of Spring Cleaning

Whether you’re the type of person to clean out your house every other week or someone who cowers from home organization, spring cleaning can be a major undertaking. “Spring cleaning” is a broad category that encompasses everything from finally junking a broken TV to cleaning out your car. But there are some items that deserve a place of prominence on every spring cleaning checklist. Here are the top 3 ways to succeed at spring cleaning.

Spring Cleaning Checklist

  • Haul. Spring cleaning presents a great opportunity to not only clean, but completely clean out the house. Before starting your yearly deep clean, get rid of furniture that’s just collecting dust. For an even more effective clean out, sort through closets, cabinets, and other storage areas to haul off items you no longer use.
  • Dust. Dust has a way of collecting in the smallest corners. Your eyes may not notice dust bunnies under the couch, but your allergies are certainly affected. Before getting down to the nitty gritty of scrubbing your house, pull furniture out from the wall and vacuum up dust bunnies. You should also dust the tops of cabinets, picture frames, and window treatments.

While it’s important to deep clean bathrooms, kitchens, and other living spaces, make sure to add laundry to your spring cleaning checklist. Wash comforters, pillow shams, throw rugs, towels, and linens–even the ones in storage.
