Here was my list:
Dust and wash all ceiling fans and light fixtures
Take down, wash, dry, and iron all curtains
Dust curtain rods and brackets
Dust door and window moldings
Dust bevels in all doors
Find and deal with any cobwebs lurking in corners
Using vacuum extension tool, vacuum all edges along walls
Wash doors and sides of all cabinets in bathrooms and kitchen
Wash all windows and window sills/ sliding door track
Dust lamp shades, *tip - use a sticky lint roller to do the job, works great!
Test smoke detectors
I still plan on:
Vacuuming and washing all heating and cooling vents
Washing the outside of all windows
Sweeping the front stoop, sidewalk, and deck
Washing all winter bedding and switching out to Summer versions
Washing and storing winter coats, hats, scarves and mittens
Wiping down and storing snow boots
Cleaning (if necessary) and storing winter clothes
Sorting through the kids clothes, removing anything that is too small and making a list of Spring and Summer needs
While I have been doing all of this cleaning, I have been collecting things to donate and I have a nice sized pile growing in the basement. There is nothing like a move to get me to get rid of things.
What's on your Spring Cleaning list? Any tips and tricks you would care to share?
