March Home Maintenance Checklist

No need to get overwhelmed by March spring cleaning — take it room by room in manageable groups of threes. After all, three’s a charm!⁣

In your living room:
Dust ceiling fans and light fixtures⁣
Vacuum or dry clean curtains and clean window blinds⁣
Wipe down baseboards and clear corners of dust bunnies and cobwebs⁣

In your bedrooms:⁣
Clean out drawers and closets (and donate gently used items)⁣
Wash comforters, shams, and blankets⁣
Rotate and/or flip your mattress⁣

In your kitchen:⁣
Empty the fridge and wipe down all the shelves (or stick them in the DW if they’ll fit)⁣
Defrost the freezer and toss any freezer-burned food⁣
Wipe down your microwave, stovetop, coffeemaker, and any other small appliances⁣

In your bathrooms:⁣
Toss out expired makeup, toiletries, and OTC medicines⁣
Wash the shower curtain and floor mats⁣
Clean grout (or regrout if needed).⁣

It’s definitely not my favorite thing to do, but I love how I feel and how my home looks after a serious cleaning session!
