Is anyone else looking forward to spring cleaning? Or, have you started yours already? Sometimes I feel like I am the only one that looks forward to spring cleaning as much as I do. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I would prefer for my house to just stay sparkling clean year round, but it doesn’t and so I get to hit the reset button every year. I love it.
It would be great to just have a solid week of free time so that I can clean my house top to bottom, wall to wall and not miss an inch. I also know though, that I am not the only busy mom out there and sometimes we have to make due with the time that we have. If you are busy and you are looking for some spring cleaning tips that you can do in a short amount of time, head on over here and check out this post we did on Spring Cleaning When You are Short on Time.
If you are working with just a small amount of time, you may be tempted to do just a small part of the house, but the truth is, you can find some tips that make spring cleaning the entire house much easier. I love these tips because it reminds you of jobs that are often forgotten.
Regardless if you have very little time, or you are working with an open schedule, you still want to make your spring cleaning job as easy as possible, right? That’s why you should always prepare for your spring cleaning projects before you start. Here’s a little checklist that I always follow so that I am able to work smarter, not harder.
- Have the right supplies
- Keep the right tools and products together
- Start in the smaller areas
- Work from top to bottom
- Create a checklist. When starting your Spring cleaning process, it’s good to have a schedule and/or checklist of chores that you need to do. It will keep you on track, make sure you don’t forget any spaces and help you with peace of mind.
Do you have any thing that you would add to this short list?
You might also find that your cleaning list is different depending on your household. If you have toddlers, for example, the messes that you are working on are likely to be a lot different that if you are cleaning up with teens in the house. Of course, with teens in the house, you can have them join in on the spring cleaning project, so that is a benefit!
Or, if you have pets in the home, your cleaning checklist is going to be far different. I have covered quite a few pet cleaning tips here on Way2GoodLife and you can totally go back and check them out if you missed them. Pets are great, but they do have their own unique set of messes that we get to clean up. Fun, right?
Do you have any great cleaning tips for moms of toddlers, moms of pets, moms of any other aged kids or, actually anyone else? I love hearing all about everyone’s cleaning styles because you just never know when you are going to hear something brilliant! If someone is able to save me time and frustration in my spring cleaning or my everyday cleaning, I will love them forever, so please feel free to share!
