There’s something about blue skies and damp, fresh mornings that get me into the mood to clean. I decided to create a 5 Day Spring Cleaning Challenge Checklist that you can print and complete for yourself. ‘/ve set it up so you can create a reward for each day, once you complete your goals.
When it comes to cleaning the house, I’m really bad about staying on task. I get distracted easily by other projects and chores in my home. Creating a checklist and setting goals with rewards helps me stay on track.
You can do each day in any order you want to. You can complete your days all in a row, or spread them out through 5 weekends. It’s up to you to decide how you want to complete your Spring Cleaning Challenge.
Spring Cleaning helps me get that deep clean that I don’t do every day or week in my home. It helps remind me to tackle the challenging parts of my home that I skip because I don’t have the time for them.
What should I clean my house with? I’m going to give you a few of my products in the post below, but my best recommendation is to go with scents you enjoy and products that you are familiar with. Be very cautious about mixing any chemicals. My recommendation is don’t mix anything, besides adding water to dilute a premade cleaner.
Cleaning walls, doors, cabinets, and baseboards. I spot-clean these areas when needed, but at least once a year I like to tackle them with a deep scrub of the entire area. Some of my favorite cleaning products: Murphy’s Oil Soap & Swedish dishcloth. for doors, banisters and door frames.
Light fixtures & ceiling fans.
These are always at the end of my list. I hate dragging out the ladder so I can reach these items. Plus, they are a pain to clean. Remove any fixtures that you can, and give them a thorough clean in soapy water. Some of my favorite products are Murphy’s Oil Soap (after you dust) for ceiling fans. & Swedish dishcloth.
Cleaning the oven
Can I just buy a new one? LOL! I hate cleaning the oven and stovetop. Soak the oven racks in your bathtub with water and a laundry detergent pod. Place a towel at the bottom of the tub to protect it from scratches from your oven racks. Soak overnight and scrub and rinse clean the next day.
Don’t forget to change or clean the filters on your range hood. You can wash them in the dishwasher or soak them in the sink with ¼ cup of baking soda and a couple of squirts of dish soap in boiling water for about an hour. Use a gentle brush to lift the grease and grime. Then rinse and let air dry.
Change filters on the furnace and vacuum around the parts of the furnace if needed.
Clean out dryer lint with a vacuum. Remove the vent hose and clean any lint that may be inside it.
Clean couch and chairs
Use your vacuum attachment to vacuum under and in between the cushions of your couch and other seating. Wipe the fabric down with appropriate materials for a deeper clean.
Cleaning your mattress is often forgotten. But, it’s something that really should be done every few months. You can read this article, How to Clean a Mattress, to get detailed instructions.
