My Spring Cleaning List! 🧹

Hey guys!

Spring is coming which means it’s almost that time for spring cleaning! Since it’ll be the first time we’ve been in our new home when it’s spring, I feel like I need to make the ultimate cleaning list. There is sooooo much to do and I really love opening up the windows when it’s nice outside and just enjoying the breeze. It makes cleaning THAT much better. Making this list will also make my life easier because I don’t have to sit down in a couple of weeks and think about it, it’ll just be here! FYI, long list ahead! 🙂

Inside:

  • clean all of the windows including the little area between the net and the window
  • take down my curtains and washing them so they smell fresh
  • put away anything left from the winter and bringing out any spring stuff
  • deep clean the bathrooms (sink, toilets, showers, floors)
  • re-organize the pantry
  • dust off surfaces in the whole house
  • re-organize shoe closet
  • move all furniture and clean underneath it
  • wipe down all floor moldings
  • wipe down dust from picture frames + mirrors
  • vacuum and Swiffer the floors including all corners and edges
  • organize office closets
  • re-arrange the den
  • vacuum the basement + laundry room
  • wash bed covers/pillow cases/pillows from bedroom + guest bedroom
  • freshen up and re-arrange guest bedroom
  • re-organize closet that has all my house stuff 
  • wipe down ceiling fans 
  • clean any shoes that got dirty from winter
  • wipe down the basement stairs + basement hallway
  • wash the doors from scuff marks
  • dust the office bookcase
  • freshen up living room furniture and wash the pillows from the couch
  • clean the tiles in the shower
  • replace any light bulbs that are missing in the rooms
  • change air filter
  • clean the microwave + dishwasher + oven 
  • re-organize plastic containers, buy new ones if needed
  • clean + organize kitchen drawers
  • clean out cabinets + re-organize
  • clean coffee machine + coffee bar area.. re-organize coffee mugs (maybe buy the shelf I’ve been wanting above it)
  • clean under the sink
  • clean dining room table (wipe down any dust from chairs)
  • clean out bathroom shelves 
  • put in new bathroom floor matts after cleaning the bathroom floors
  • re-organize makeup table, throw out any old, expired items
  • add shelves to the laundry room and set it up
  • get rid of any clutter like old food and things we don’t want
  • put away winter clothes and bring out spring clothes (wash them) + re-organize closet
  • organize office desk and throw out any unnecessary things

Now, the outside is a whole different story. There is so much to do and since it’s been a long winter, there is a lot of fallen branches and stuff we need to clean up.

Outside:

  • clean off driveway with water hose
  • do any paint touch ups around the door and front steps etc.,
  • clean the grill
  • clean out garage so I can park the car
  • throw out any clutter from the garage, sell it if possible
  • clean out gutters
  • replace broken awning
  • put new lightbulbs in areas where the lights went out
  • trim trees/bushes
  • cut down trees if needed since they are very dry and can fall 
  • get rid of any bugs outside the house (plus add bug spray) and clean out rock area by front door 
  • wash my car (this is sooooo needed)

I think that’s everything.. wow that’s A LOT! But it needs to get done, so I’m going to take my time and break it out into sessions throughout the weekends! Especially since it’s not 100% warm outside yet and the weather is unpredictable, we can’t really do all the outside stuff, but I can do some of the inside cleaning! I’m excited though, spring cleaning can be fun if you make it fun! 🙂

Does anyone else use a spring cleaning list to help you remember what you need to do? Lists in general are super helpful for me, so this will be a HUGE plus. Anything I missed that you recommend needs to be done for spring?? Let me know in the comments 🙂
