Spring/Summer Project: Spring Cleaning Checklist

For some, spring cleaning seems like a huge looming task. For others it is the highlight of the season, a time to open the windows, let the fresh air travel through their home while they tidy it up. Here is a helpful checklist for your spring cleaning endeavors?
  • Grab a feather duster, clear everything off of your shelves (books, knick knacks, etc.) and dust them off as well as you can. Also this is a great time to dust all the hard to reach areas in your home such as ceiling fans, corners on the ceiling, the tops of tall appliances and top cabinets.
  • Get out your vacuum cleaner and using the attachments get rid of stubborn dust on shelves and walls before wiping them down with a cloth and the cleaner of your choice.
  • Using a metal polish clean the metal hardware on your windows, doors, and even knobs on cabinets and furniture that are metal.
  • Take out your window screens (if they are removable) and give them a good washing. Warm water and a mild dish-washing soap is sufficient for this job. Use a brush to wash and then rinse the window screens.
  • Check your curtains and drapes to see if they are machine washable, if so wash them according to instructions to remove all the dust and debris that they collect throughout the year. Wipe down blinds with a damp cloth. Have any drapes that are not machine washable dry cleaned.
  • The last step in your cleaning routine should be vacuuming and shampooing your carpet. (This is so that you won't redirty the floor when you are dusting, etc.)
