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!
