Cleaning out the closets, reorganizing the pantry, throwing out old clothes, and dusting behind appliances are tasks that are probably already on your spring cleaning checklist. A deep cleaning of your home or apartment is a great way to kick off a new season and get rid of clutter. Your home will not only look beautiful, but it will be easier to find what you need on any given day and you can make the most of your living space!
It’s easy to overlook many areas of the home during your cleaning rounds, so make sure you have a thorough list or plan before you begin. Here are ten things you don’t want to forget during your spring cleaning routine:
#1: Cleaning underneath the kitchen countertops. Germs, dirt and mold can collect right under the ridge of your countertops. Clean under the counter space with a washcloth and disinfectant.
#2: Disinfecting and cleaning around the toilet bowl. Even though you might clean the inside and top of the toilet bowl once or twice per week, the area right under the flush tank often gets overlooked.
#3: Dusting the blinds. If you have Venetian or wood blinds hanging in your living space, take the time to dust each slat and also fix any broken strings.
#4: Reorganizing the medicine cabinet. Throw out expired products and remove everything from the shelves for a thorough clean. Only keep what you and your family use on a regular basis.
#5: Vacuuming or sweeping underneath the bed. Dust bunnies tend to migrate underneath the bed frames each season, so make sure you move the bed to another side of a room to catch them. Avoid storing anything but sealed containers and boxes under your bed to keep things organized.
#6: Dusting art, photographs, and wall Carefully remove photographs, artwork and wall hangings from the wall to give them a light dusting before putting them back in place.
#7: Reorganizing and cleaning under the kitchen sink. If you tend to store a lot of cleaning supplies and other household items in the cupboard underneath the kitchen sink, clear everything out and wash inside to get rid of mold and debris.
#8: Dusting the tops of ceiling fans. Dust down all the fan blades and use a gentle cleanser to keep those blades shiny and looking new.
#9: Cleaning the bathroom fans. If you have a fan in the bathroom with a visible vent, dust and clean it thoroughly to ensure air is flowing in and out properly. Dust and grime can collect on the vent plate and inside the vent over time.
#10: Cleaning the washer and dryer. Run your washer through a cycle of only vinegar and baking soda with a little water to clean for a deep clean. Clean out the dryer’s vents and wipe down both units with a damp cloth dipped in white vinegar and lemon juice or baking soda. Be sure to vacuum and sweep around each unit thoroughly.
As some of you already know me… I love to clean and organized things. I love a clean, organize, good smelling house.
