Wondering where or how to start your spring cleaning routine?
We’ve curated this helpful (and totally practical) to-do list, plus the essential supplies you’ll need for each room, so you can breeze through your cleaning tasks with ease!
Of course you take care of culinary messes as they happen, but a once-in-a-while deep clean will definitely do your kitchen good. Clean the counters, sink and hard surfaces, including refrigerator and dishwasher doors. Wash down refrigerator shelves and toss any expired products. Spray down and scrub oven and stove with the appropriate cleaners to remove caked-on food. Finally, clean the floor, moving appliances if you can.
It may be one of the smallest rooms in the house, but your bathroom is a big focus for spring cleaning. Be sure to clean the tub and shower to remove soap scum, mold and mildew, plus the countertop, sink and (of course) the toilet. Empty your medicine cabinet and vanity, properly discarding items you no longer use. Finish up by mopping and cleaning tile grout, if needed.
You spend lots of time in your living areas, so be sure to give them a thorough pass during spring cleaning. Start by wiping down walls, switches, baseboards, doorknobs and windows to remove smudges and fingerprints. Dust hard surfaces, polish wood and condition leather furniture. Vacuum carpet and rugs, then spot clean upholstery as needed. Close out your routine by sweeping and mopping floors.
Clean Space Essentials
From the clothes in your closet to the cleaning supplies in your cabinets, there are numerous opportunities for improving organization with various storage solutions. Grab some tubs for storing winter clothes and boots, hooks and hangers for clothes, scarves and hats, plus totes, caddies and bins for storing cleaning supplies. Declutter kitchens and bathrooms with stylish jars and containers.
