When Spring arrives, I plan two things: seasonal closet change-out, and deep cleaning. However, considering how much cleaning the Covid-19 pandemic has had us doing for the past year, I thought some quick and easy tidying & cleaning was more applicable.
Let's start with the Entry since it is the smallest space in your home with almost as much traffic as the kitchen.
Go through mail and anything dropped by the door.
Place items in their home: handbags, backpacks, shoes, jewelry, groceries, online purchases, etc.
If you have furniture with drawers, go through the drawers and clean it out.
If you have a bench, remove excess items and place in its home..
Dust and clean any furniture, light fixtures, front door (front & back), hooks, knobs, and the rest.
Quickly go through the fridge and clean out what you know can be tossed.
Clean & place all the food containers, glassware, dishes, pots, pans, and utensils where they belong. Clean the dish rack & sink.
If you have a dishwasher, clean & empty out the dishes, etc and give your dishwasher a clean cycle to clean itself.
Clear countertops from excess items & clean.
Clean any small appliances that you see.
Place any used dish towels & rags into the hamper, and replace with new ones.
Go through the medicine cabinet, under sink, and over-the-toilet storage for items to pitch or place in its home.
Clean front of medicine cabinet.
Clean sink & fixtures.
Remove any excess items from tub area, then clean tub & fixtures.
Happy Spring Cleaning!
