Spring Cleaning Checklist

Many families eagerly look forward to the coming of spring, especially after the cold winter months. In anticipation of spring, it is a common tradition for homeowners to thoroughly clean each room in their home to ensure that their living spaces are as fresh and rejuvenating as the weather. After you get your cleaning supplies ready, here is a spring cleaning checklist to help you cleanse your kitchen, living room, bathroom, and bedroom.

Kitchen Cleaning Checklist

    Remove all the food from the pantry and freezer, throw away anything that is out of date, and clean the shelves prior to placing everything back inside.
    Clean the outside of the fridge, including on top and behind it.
    Sanitize the sink, clean the sink guard, and don’t forget to degrease the drain while you’re at it.
    Wipe any fingerprints and marks off of the appliances, such as the microwave.
    Open the crumb tray of your toaster and clean out all the crumbs that built up over the winter.
    Wash all of the components of your coffee machine so they’re prepared to brew your next cup.
    Thoroughly wash the stovetop and any stains it may have experienced.
    Go through all your silverware and kitchen utensils and scrub or polish them thoroughly, so they’re ready for the next time you use them. If you have fine china in your dining room, now is a good time to dust them.

Cleaning Your Living Room for Spring

    Dust the ceiling, and the ceiling fan, first so that you can vacuum up any dust that falls to the floor later.
    Wipe down the window sills and then wash the window screens afterward.
    Take the cushions off of your furniture, and while they’re being washed, wax down or polish your wooden furniture.
    Clean all of the electronics in the living room, from dusting the television and game consoles to washing germs off the remotes.
    Check the batteries in the remotes and, more importantly, the smoke detectors to see if they are functioning correctly.

Bathroom Spring Cleaning

    Place all of your toiletries, personal care, and medicinal products in one place, throw out any that have expired, then sort the rest back in the cabinets.
    Wash the mirror until it sparkles.
    Thoroughly scrub the showerhead, bathtub, shower, and remove the shower curtain and floor mat for cleaning as well.
    Clean the inside, outside, and the tiles surrounding the toilet.
    If the grout lines between the wall and floor have been stained, reseal them.

Spring Cleaning for Bedrooms

    Take all of the books off the shelf and dust both them and the shelf itself.
    Remove all of the bed and pillow sheets and thoroughly wash them.
    While you are cleaning the bedding, rotate or flip the mattress to another side.
    Take the time to shampoo or vacuum your rugs, depending on the material they were made with.
    Dust the curtains and blinds.
    Go through all of the clothing in your wardrobe and closet, clean them, and then neatly fold and organize them.
