Our Spring cleaning checklist

Springtime is a season of renewal, and what better way to start fresh than with a thorough spring cleaning? Whether you're looking to declutter your home or simply refresh your living space, a spring cleaning checklist can help you stay organised and focused. From the living room to the kitchen, each area of your home requires its own specific attention to detail.

In this article, we'll guide you through our comprehensive spring cleaning checklist that covers every inch of your home. With our tips and tricks, you'll be able to tackle even the messiest corners with ease. So grab your gloves and get ready to make your home sparkle!

Make a plan.

Make a list of what needs to be cleaned in my home and then decide which areas of my space to tackle first. Finally gather cleaning essentials – like baking soda, white vinegar, bleach, a spray bottle, a mop, sponges, microfiber cloths – and begin.  

Declutter as you clean.

Spring cleaning is an excellent opportunity to declutter. For instance,  pay attention to problem areas like our junk drawers, closets, and kitchen cabinets. Keep a donation box or bag nearby.  Add oud scent cards to your drawers and wardrobes to keep them smelling great.

Clean your windows, blinds, and curtains.

Clean the exterior windows for all the units in our apartment complex. It’s a great benefit of renting. When the window cleaners arrive, I’m reminded to clean our interior windows, blinds, and curtains. 

Don’t forget the refrigerator and oven. 

Clean the inside and exterior surfaces of your refrigerator and stove top. If you can, unplug and use the built-in wheels to move your refrigerator. 

 

Wipe down your cabinets.

Don’t forget to clean your kitchen cabinets. I touch my cabinets daily, so it’s important for me to keep them clean. 

 Scrub your trash bin

Take the bin outside, and scrub it with disinfectant and a sponge. Then I spray it down with water.  Add some oud scented oil to some cotton wool and keep in the bin area.

Don’t forget your faucets and sinks. 

Spring cleaning is a good time to deep clean faucets, handles, and sinks. I usually take the handles off, then soak them in vinegar to remove mineralization and soap scum. Use a toothpick or an old toothbrush to clean hard to reach places. 

Make your home brighter by cleaning light fixtures.

It's amazing me how much dust accumulates on lamps, light bulbs, and overhead lights. This is a good time to clean ceiling fans too. Use a damp towel to clean all our lights (and ceiling fans). Cleaning light fixtures makes your home brighter. Plus, the air quality is cleaner. 

Don’t forget to dust art and photos that hang on your walls. Use a microfiber cloth to gently dust photos and art. When dusting, consider wearing a face mask to help you breathe easier.

Donate books.

Reevaluate what books you want to keep, and what books you want to donate to the library. Pull all the books off my bookshelf, clean the shelves, and then decide what to keep or give away. 

This requires a little more effort, and help. Moving big items, then vacuuming or mopping the space feels good! 

Wipe down your walls.

Take time to clean the dust, dirt, and grime from my walls and baseboards. It’s an opportunity to remove scuff marks from my front door, too. 

Finish off with Oud fragrance

Whether it be candle, diffusers or incense cones the best way to get that clean home feeling is to add some fragrance to each room!
