Spring Cleaning Checklists And Tips
Home cleaning is an everyday job, for sure. An all-day job if you have kids – well… or a husband :)! There are specific jobs we put off when we clean our homes day today. The bigger things are the things that don’t need to be done every day, week, or even month.
But, somewhere along the line, someone invented Spring Home Cleaning – Spring Cleaning probably came from the nice weather and the fact that you felt revived after the winter, and it was a great time to open the windows and doors and enjoy the sun and warmer weather and spruce things up! Spring makes everything feel lighter, brighter, and cleaner.

Rooms and Items We Often Forget To Clean
We forget to clean a few things and delay cleaning in this space. And spring is the perfect time to give your bathroom a thorough cleaning. So here are some cleaning tips and tricks for your bathroom.
The main thing people forget to clean is the shower curtain. All you have to do is pop the curtain (plastic or fabric) in the washer with warm water and add a cup of vinegar with a few drops of detergent, then hang it to dry.
The warm soapy water with vinegar will get it super clean and get out any stubborn stain. And that’s one of many of my spring house cleaning tips.
The shower head is another item people overlook cleaning that should be on your to-do list. If you don’t keep up with it, you can have rust stains.
And last but not least don’t forget to wash bathmats. You can wash them just like your shower curtains.
We always put off cleaning the laundry room you may even think you don’t have to but that can lead to dryer fires and wet clothes so to help out here are some house cleaning ideas for your laundry room.
The main thing people don’t think to clean is their washing machine. Not only is this a thing to have on your spring cleaning list it’s also a good idea to do regularly.
This may seem like a daunting task, but it’s not as hard as it looks. Some washing machines have a cleaning cycle and you just need a washer cleaner detergent.
Other times you can use vinegar and set the washer to run on its longest cycle with the hottest water.

We all know to clean the kitchen sink, but what about the garbage disposal. There are many different ways you can do this. My favorite house cleaning tricks for this is baking soda and vinegar.
Inside the kitchen cabinets is another place people tend to overlook cleaning. We always think about the outside of the cabinets, but the inside can get dirty as well.
All you need is a clean cloth, and any wood-safe cleaner to clean them.
The best way to clean them is to use water and vinegar since it’s the best food-safe option. This has to be one of my favorite house cleaning hacks and tips.
