Spring into Action with Your Cleaning Plan!

It helps you break the task into manageable parts, ensuring you neither miss any areas nor become overwhelmed by the sheer volume of work. Take a walk around your home with a notebook and list down all the areas you want to work on. Don't skip any neglected spots like the laundry room. Here are some areas to keep in mind:

• Big ticket items like carpets, curtains, and upholstery

• The often-forgotten spaces such as the pantry, under the bed, and inside appliances

• Season-specific tasks like cleaning outdoor furniture.

Breaking Down the Plan

• Prioritize areas in need of attention and extra supplies.

• Focus on high-traffic spaces like the kitchen and bathrooms first. Guest rooms can wait if they're rarely used.

• Create a schedule to tackle cleaning tasks efficiently.

• Dedicate one room per day or set aside a whole weekend for organization.

• Organize cleaning supplies. Make sure you've got a range of tools, from scrub brushes and sponges to dusting wands and vacuum attachments. Pro tip: create a cleaning caddy with your most-used items to easily transport them around the house.

Tackling Tricky Areas

Certain spots in the house always seem to be particularly troublesome. Here’s how to handle them:

• Bathrooms: Use a disinfecting cleaner for surfaces. Pay special attention to grout and drains, which can harbor mold and mildew.

• Kitchen: Degrease appliances and surfaces. Defrost the fridge and clean out the freezer. Don’t forget to remove the stove’s drip pans — or clean beneath them if they're sealed burners!

• Bedrooms: Flip mattresses, wash bedding, and vacuum pillows and comforters, taking care to use the appropriate settings to avoid damage.

• Living Areas: Refresh couch cushions by fluffing them and vacuuming between and underneath. Address any stains on carpets or upholstery.

Decluttering is a vital part of spring cleaning and can make the overall process much more efficient.

The Four-Box Method- Organize your items into four categories: trash, donate, keep, or relocate. Be sure to get a receipt for anything you donate.
