It's that time again. The time when we turn to Spring Cleaning. I know, some of you still have inches, even feet, of snow on the ground so it's hard to think that Spring is about 2 weeks away. But it is and Spring Cleaning is a big deal for many people. It's a chance to get your house and garden spic and span. Time to open the windows, move furniture, turn mattresses, wash windows and comforters and mattress pads. Fun stuff, right? Maybe not, but doesn't it feel good to do that deep yearly cleaning?
I have a weekly schedule - a flexible one, but this is what it looks like on the 'normal' week:
Sunday - Clean the fridge (trash gets picked up on Mondays so I pitch what I need to on Sundays), empty trash cans, clean dog doo (LM does the last two), mop kitchen floor.
Monday - Laundry
Tuesday - Dust, clean bathrooms (2), mop floors
Wednesday - Laundry
Thursday - Change sheets, wash towels,Vacuum, dust
Friday - Laundry
Saturday - Grocery shop, more laundry, if needed
When Spring Cleaning, I add a few deep cleaning tasks to my schedule each day for a couple of weeks:
- Wipe down fridge-inside and out.
- Wipe outside of cabinets in kitchen and baths.
- Move area rugs - vacuum, hang outside.
- Move furniture - vacuum and mop underneath everything.
- Wash shower & window curtains.
- Launder mattress pads, comforters, pillows & shams.
- Clean out fireplaces.
- Clean oven.
- Wash windows (inside and out) and screens.
One of my favorite everyday cleaning resources is Clean Mama. She has so much cleaning and organizing tips.
