How To Spring Clean Your Bedroom
- Nightstand – go through your nightstand, computer table, and any other furniture you have in the room, looking for junk
- Curtains – remove the curtains and wash them. Spot cleaning and scrubbing may be necessary for stains.
- Cobwebs – remove cobwebs from the corners of your ceiling, under the bed, behind furniture, and other similar places
- Fans – put a pillow cover around each of your ceiling fan’s blades, and run the fan for a couple minutes. No more dusty fans!
- Master bathroom – using a spray bottle filled with vinegar, scrub out water stains and soap scum. Tackle hard-to-reach spots with an old toothbrush.
- Medicine cabinet spring cleaning – wipe the inside down, and make sure you throw out any medicines that have expired, or which are about to expire soon
How To Spring Clean Your Closet
- Get rid of clothes – Look for clothes that are torn, stained, or which no longer fit. You can mend them, repurpose them as kitchen rags, or you can donate them.
- Drawers – Change out the underlayment (usually newspaper) in your drawers
- Organize your clothes by category – shirts, trousers, jackets, accessories, etc. If you have a large closet, you can consider organizing each category by color.
How To Spring Clean Your Kitchen
- Nooks & crannies – Clean your shelves and cabinets. Make sure to dust above, below, and between the hinges.
- Old food – look for food that’s past the use by date. If anything’s starting to look bad or approaching expiration, make a note to use it up quickly.
- Floors – if the floor is tiled, clean the grout between the tiles
- Stove – clean the stove, checking for dirt that may be clogging the burners
- Oven – use the self-cleaning feature on your oven and then clean the debris. If you do not have this feature, then remove the racks, soak them before scrubbing them, and then use that elbow grease on the oven.
How To Spring Clean Your Garage
- Mold & pest damage – remove everything and air out the garage. Deep-clean the space, checking for mold and pest damage
- Tools – clean your tools (especially garden tools)
- Reorganize – put everything back, organizing it into categories and setting junk aside
