Top Spring Cleaning Tips for a Sparkling Home

It’s spring and time to enjoy a cleaner, refreshed home! Spring cleaning is both a refreshing and a completely exhausting exercise. While it feels great to clean up, clean out, and simplify, sometimes it feels overwhelming, and you don’t know where to start.

Sound familiar? If you’re not looking forward to this annual ritual, remember that you don’t have to finish your spring cleaning in one day. Pick a weekend, pick a room, get to work, and you’ll be done in no time! Also, if you’re wondering how best to spring clean, here are our top spring cleaning tips for your spring cleaning checklist in 2024.

Room-by-Room Spring Cleaning 

Each living space contains slightly different materials, such as wood versus tile or carpets, and various furniture and fabric types. Plan carefully to prepare for your home’s cleaning challenges. 

Start with a spring cleaning checklist and a deep cleaning checklist by room. Prioritize the elements requiring the most attention and time and consider what is necessary for spring cleaning each room. Why not create your spring cleaning checklist in a convenient printable format to make your life easier? 

Source the necessary supplies, such as dust cloths, disinfectants, cleaning products, trash bags, storage solutions, and your mop, broom, and vacuum to prepare each room for spring. Your deep cleaning list may warrant additional products or tools – continue reading for recommendations. 

Start decluttering each area by storing what you want to keep and donating or recycling the rest. Then use your cleaning checklist by room and our handy tips.

Kitchen Cleaning

The kitchen is the heart of many homes and deserves a thorough spring cleaning. After you finish your routine – wash the dishes, wipe the cabinets, sweep the floor – go one step further using your deep-clean checklist. First, focus on your appliances, such as the fridge, dishwasher, oven, and microwave. On each of these, you can use a combination of baking soda and warm water to get rid of gunk and vinegar to banish odor. 

To clean your oven, use a baking soda paste. To clean your microwave, microwave a bowl of water on high for a minute, then wipe out the condensation with a sponge. To buff your stainless steel, put a few drops of olive oil on a paper towel and rub in a circular motion.

Clean Living Room

As we all know, the living room accumulates clutter faster than any other room in the house. The most important thing is to look at everything in the room to spring clean your living space. Peek in every drawer, examine every shelf, and make sure that everything you find in the living room belongs in the living room.

Once you’ve weeded the unnecessary, create a designated spot for all the random items in the room. As soon as you’re organized, take your regular cleaning a step further. Clean the upholstery, dust those hard-to-reach places (like the blades of a ceiling fan), and clean your carpets by deodorizing them with baking soda and removing stains with vinegar.

Clean Bedroom

Spring cleaning in the bedroom is all about swapping fall and winter for spring and summer. Starting with the bed, remove, clean, and store any appropriate layers for the cold weather. Replace thick, heavy textiles with something light, gauzy, and refreshing. After swapping your linens, turn to your closet and swap your winter wardrobe for spring and summer clothing. 

Last, take this time to simplify your bedroom for the season ahead. Ensure your bedside table, vanity, and dresser surfaces are clean and uncluttered. You’ll create a more peaceful, serene space by putting things like your lipstick stash or jewelry collection out of sight.

Clean Bathroom

Last but not least, on your room-by-room cleaning checklist, give your bathroom a deep clean to make it truly sparkle. To avoid harsh chemicals that harm you and your family, make your all-purpose cleaner with castile soap, hydrogen peroxide, vinegar, and lemon juice. You can use this cleaner on everything from the floors to the sink. 

To get rid of grime in the bathtub, scrub the porcelain with baking soda. Use vinegar, a brush, and a little elbow grease for noticeably cleaner grout around your tiles. If your drains are clogged, sprinkle them with salt — an all-natural exfoliant — then flush them with boiling water. Your bathroom will look as if you’ve hired a professional spring cleaning service!

Maintaining Cleanliness After Spring Cleaning 

Remember, spring cleaning doesn’t have to be done all at once. Pace yourself, and take breaks to avoid burnout. Enjoy the process and the fresh, clean feeling that comes with a well-maintained living space.

Once all the hard work is done, adapt your whole house cleaning checklist to a maintenance roster. Take the opportunity to check your furniture’s condition and repair or replace it where necessary. Remember to clean windows, curtains, and blinds, and also clean or replace your HVAC system’s air filters. 

With all these tips and tricks and a cleaning checklist at your disposal, our final advice for successful spring cleaning is to start now! You’ll want to spend time outdoors as the weather warms up and the days grow longer, so we encourage you to tackle your seasonal chores immediately. Once your home is spick and span, maintain your hard work with an ongoing daily clearing routine and a monthly cleaning schedule.

    Hi there, I agree with you that cleaning home is completely highly exhausting exercise. There are also professional cleaners who provide home cleaning services. When my sister moved to her new house with her boyfriend, she hired a professional movers in NYC who provided him moving and cleaning services.
