Spring Cleaning Countdown

Want to knock out your spring cleaning in a month? It may seem impossible, but take it week by week, and you’re sure to have a sparkling clean house before May begins to flower. 🌻 Below, you’ll find a downloadable spring cleaning checklist.


Week One: Declutter

Decluttering is a big aspect of any cleaning project. Whether it be your closet, bathroom, basement, garage, or other areas of your home, don’t leave this to the last week of your spring-cleaning responsibilities. Decluttering and organizing should be done before any major cleaning, as you don’t want to be dusting and wiping things that you may not even end up keeping.


Week Two: Clean

After decluttering, it’s time to start deep cleaning and disinfecting your home. Wipe down your countertops, furniture, and flooring. Don’t forget about those often skipped areas like the garbage can, light switches, and washing machine. Break out the cleaners (or make your own) and put on your favorite playlist, and you’re one step closer to making your home brand new again.


Weeks Three & Four: DIY or Remodel

A DIY project or a total remodel can take longer than a week but is often a part of spring cleaning. When bins are stacked with winter’s goods, and the counters are shiny again, you may decide you want to completely redo a portion of a room or an entire area. There are plenty of projects to consider: turning your typical storage bins into hanging shelves, making decorative trays to spruce up your decor, replacing kitchen hardware, or repainting areas in desperate need of a revamp.


Spring cleaning doesn’t have to be a daunting undertaking. Break up your tasks in a reasonable order to get your home in tip-top shape for summer and the months to follow!
