Spring Cleaning Checklist


I LOVE spring! Everything is so clean and new and fresh. I'm kind of excited to start spring cleaning this year, because its our first year owning a home! And is it just me, or is it way easier to take care of something that you own yourself! Anyways, I made myself a checklist this year so I wouldn't get off track, and I thought I'd share! I copied and pasted it on here so you would be able to paste it into a word document and change it to meet your needs. I realize this is a lot, but I am giving myself a month to do all of it, so I don't think it will be too hard! Hopefully this helps you kick off your spring cleaning!

(I realize all of these might not apply to everyone, but this was just what I needed to do in my house, you can add and take away things as you please!)

  • Dust EVERYTHING. Fans, plant shelves, lights, decorations, clocks, etc.
  • Wipe down all doorknobs, light switches and power outlets.
  • Walls. Spot clean and touch up paint where needed.
  • Bathroom cabinets/drawers. Pull EVERYTHING out, wipe down inside of cabinet, sort contents into keep vs. toss, and organize keep pile back into cabinet/drawer.
  • Kitchen cabinets/drawers. Pull EVERYTHING out, wipe down inside of cabinet, sort contents into keep vs. toss, and organize keep pile back into cabinet/drawer.
  • Baseboards. Vacuum and Wipe down with a damp rag.
  • Doors/doorframes. Vacuum and wipe down all with a damp rag.
  • Dust and wipe all air vents.
