Let’s face it—most people don’t love cleaning. If it’s been a while since you really scoured and scrubbed every inch of your home, now is the perfect time to do so…and it doesn’t have to be difficult. Here are some of our top spring cleaning tips to get you started!
Make a Schedule
Cleaning your entire house may seem overwhelming, and that’s why most people give up before they even start. Instead of tackling your projects head on, consider making a schedule to keep yourself organized. It’s best to work room by room instead of doing it all at once.
It’s impossible to really clean every inch of your home if you have too much clutter! Now is the perfect time to clear out your space and donate any of your unused items. You may also want to host a garage sale for a little extra cash and toss anything that you can’t sell.

Deep Clean Your Kitchen
Even if you don’t do a lot of cooking, your kitchen could probably use a deep clean. Start by scrubbing down all countertops and appliances to get rid of any built-up grime. It’s never a bad idea to disinfect your fridge or clean you oven, either. To really go above and beyond, consider moving your appliances and vacuuming underneath them!
Disinfect Your Bathroom
Most people tidy up their bathrooms regularly, but you should also do a more thorough cleaning a few times per year. Sanitize your toilets, sinks, tubs, and showers with bleach to get rid of any unpleasant odors. You may also want to mop the floors, wash your shower curtain, and check for any mold or mildew.

Spruce Up the Living Room
The living room is your home’s central gathering space, so you shouldn’t neglect it during your spring cleaning. After you’ve mopped and vacuumed, take a look at all of your furniture. If you notice any stains, now is the time to scrub them away. Don’t neglect your accessories, too…they can always use a dusting. Need Inspiration?

Don’t Forget the Bedroom
Did you know that the average person will spend a third of their life asleep? That means it’s essential to get your bedroom squeaky clean! Start by cleaning your bedding and rotating your mattress. If you have any lingering clutter under your bed or in your closet, don’t be afraid to get rid of it. Finally, spend some time cleaning your floors to get rid of excess dander, pet hair, dust, and allergens that could hinder your sleep.
