Spring Cleaning Checklist

Spring Cleaning Checklist


It’s hard to keep track of spring chores, so we made a list.

Unlike regular housework, “spring cleaning” is about deep cleaning your home. It’s about cleaning all the things that get neglected all year long because life is busy and hectic. It’s also about removing clutter and starting fresh, which is why it’s “spring” and not “winter” cleaning. While you’re probably groaning at the idea of actually working your way through the list, the sense of accomplishment and freshness will make it all worth it.
