Spring is here! The windows are open, the sun is shining, and the birds are chirping. A clean house is the icing on the cake on a day like this! Spring cleaning can feel intimidating but just remember to take it room by room. Even if you have 5 minutes to spare or dedicate one weekend, I’m going to share my best tips for successful spring cleaning! Scroll down to the bottom of this page to download the Spring Cleaning Checklist!
The living room is the most trafficked area of the house, which means there’s unknowingly a lot of dirt and debris! Getting deep into cleaning the living room requires carpet/rug powder, a vacuum, and a few different vacuum attachments.
- Pull any furniture away from the wall and use your long angled brush vacuum attachment to get any dust and debris from the base of the perimeter of the room.
- Push all the furniture back and remove all the cushions from any couches and chairs. If their covers come off, throw them into the washing machine. If they don’t, sprinkle on some carpet cleaning powder and switch to your upholstery vacuum attachment. Let it sit for a bit and vacuum it all up.
- Do the same thing with your carpet and rugs!
- Clean all windows and dust blinds/shades, vacuum the window sills, and throw the curtains in the wash.

The kitchen is my favorite space in the house so I like to keep this room relatively clean on a daily basis but deep cleaning every now and then is so necessary! Doing deep cleans on your appliances helps to extend the life of them too! So, in the long run, it’s saving you money by keeping a clean kitchen.
- Clean the oven! Most ovens have a self-clean mode, so go ahead and run that. If not, remove the shelves, mix baking soda and water until it forms a paste, and rub it all over the inside walls, top, bottom, and the glass window of the oven (avoiding the coils.)
- Take the grates off your stove, or remove the drip pans, take the oven shelves and run them in a bath with super hot water and Yellow Mr. Clean.
- Wipe down the top of your stove with Clean Freak. Most electric stoves lift up so you can clean all the crumbs out from under the drip pans. Clean under the stove too!
- Remove the oven drawer where you can see the floor underneath. Use your vacuum to get as much crap out as possible! Spray with Bug Spray down there while you’re at it!
- Get all those tomato stains off the inside of your microwave. Put a bowl of water in the microwave for a few minutes to get it nice and steamy. This loosens the stuck food so you can just take a wet sponge and wipe it off easily.
- Go through your fridge and pantry and throw away expired items. Wipe down the shelves in the fridge and in the pantry with more Clean Freak. Pull out those drawers and give them a good wash in the sink.
- Get the grease off of your cabinets and range hood. Take out your hood filters and spray them with Yellow Mr. Clean. Wipe Clean.
- Spray your countertops and sink with Clean Freak and wipe clean.
I love having a clean and inviting bathroom. Sparkling clean countertops, crystal clear mirrors, dust, and hair-free floors! But where do we start with a deep cleaning? We are going to use a couple of different products here and each one will need time to sit. I have this down to a science! So, this order is important.
- If drains need to be unclogged, I recommend Green Gobbler! Use one side to dump in the bathtub and the other side into the sink. Do this first so it has time to sit!
- Use Scrubbing Bubbles power stain destroyer and apply it to the inside of the toilet bowl. Let this sit and move onto the shower.
- I have used plenty of tile mold and mildew cleaners and none have done the job quite like TileX with Clorox. Spray your entire shower and inside plastic liner. Let this sit but not too long! This product is intense and will stain a white tub yellow. Let sit for no more than five minutes.
- Move on to the sink and countertop. Use Clean Freak to spray all over the counter, behind the sink, and inside the sink.
- The shower will likely need to be washed off at this point to avoid staining! If scrubbing is needed, do so before rinsing.
- Go back to the toilet bowl to scrub and flush. Wipe off the clean freak.
- Wipe down the counters and the sink.
- Spray window cleaner on your mirrors and wipe clean.
