These spring cleaning tips will help you tackle every dust bunny in every nook and cranny on your to-do list.
Work from Top to Bottom
To keep from having to backtrack and add extra work, go into your spring cleaning with a plan. Start your spring cleaning from the top and work your way down. Clean the ceilings and corners, ceiling fans, walls from top to bottom, curtains and blinds, furniture, baseboards and then finally the floors.
Spring Cleaning Shortcuts
Are you a person that doesn’t put spring cleaning at the top of your list of favorite things to do?

Put your dishwasher to good use cleaning things other than your dishes. You can save time by cleaning the range hood exhaust filter in the dishwasher instead of soaking and scrubbing by hand.

Spring Cleaning Your Wardrobe
Spring cleaning isn’t just for the dirty, dingy spaces in your home. It’s good to go through your closet and give your wardrobe a once-over one time a year as well. You’re probably packing up those winter coats and sweaters right now anyway. Take a little extra time and sort through the rest of your closet and free up some more space while you’re at it. Once you have eliminated those items of clothing you haven’t worn since the 90’s, give everything that remains a good refresh. Toss what can be washed in your washer and dryer. Go green with this spring cleaning task and avoid those dry cleaning chemicals. Not to mention all the other green (cash) you will save. Use a steam cleaner to clean those pieces that can’t be washed in your machine.
These spring cleaning tips will help you get out from under the mess brought on by those long winter months. You’ll breathe easy when your home is fresh and clean once again.
