Spring Cleaning Checklist: Days 1-5

Spring cleaning differs from regular or routine cleaning in the sense that it can take a lot longer. Most people designate a week or two to spring cleaning so they can clean, declutter, and do their yearly chores all at the same time. So if you don’t know where to begin with your spring cleaning, don’t worry you’re not alone!

Over the next couple of weeks, we are going to walk you through each week of Spring cleaning. The checklist we have created will walk you through each day of cleaning and decluttering your home. It will help you stay motivated, inspired, and the best part is that you can use it for other seasons too.

Day 1: Dusting

  • Open your windows and let the fresh air blow through the house (trust me, once you get going you’re going to wish you had opened them in the first place)
  • Dust, sweep, and vacuum up any dust mites and cobwebs in the corners. 
  • Dust any knick-knacks, books, and shelves
  • Launder any drapes, couch covers, rugs, and any other upholstery as instructed in the label

Day 2: 

  • Clean all mirrors including bathroom and bedroom mirrors
  • Switch all your winter clothing to the back of the closet
  • Create a donate box to donate things like old clothing, unused kitchen appliances and utensils, or old toys
  • Sort through old shoes

Day 3: 

  • Begin bathroom sorting (throw out old and expired medicine and cosmetics)
  • Launder and organize the linen closet
  • Put old or unused towels in the donation box
  • Organize emergency supplies and restock the first aid kit
  • Deep clean the bathrooms

Day 4: 

  • Deep clean all appliances (this included all knobs, handles, and accessories that came with them)
  • Sanitize all handles, door knobs, and buttons, not just in the kitchen in the entire home
  • Self-Clean the washer (while this is self-cleaning wipe down the tops of your washer and dryer removing any soap residue and dust)
  • Toss out any old food, remove any interchangeable compartments and let them soak, and wipe out your refrigerator

Day 5: 

  • Feed the houseplants and clean their area (of course you should care for your plants routinely) 
  • Wash your windows inside and out
  • Vacuum window screens
  • Clean up any dead or fallen leaves
