Clutter be gone! Clearing clutter before spring cleaning will make the spring cleaning process easier. Also, when you’re finished removing junk you no longer need or want, donating the unwanted items to a charity of your choice is a good way to pay it forward. Getting rid of clutter will not only make your home feel better, but it will also free your life of disorganization. No one wants to live in a clutter mess!

Making a spring cleaning checklist will keep your spring cleaning organized and efficient. It is a good idea to keep track of what still needs to be cleaned. Keeping a spring cleaning checklist of rooms that have not been touched/finished gives you the opportunity to go back and finish them later.  Remember, you don’t need to spring clean everything all at once; in fact, it’s better to do it a little at a time. Doing smaller spring cleaning tasks will let you focus on one room, so you can really clean your heart out!

Spring cleaning by yourself isn’t very fun, so that’s why having another person to help you will really come in handy.

With two or more people spring cleaning the house, it will be sure to look extra spring sparkly. Perfect solution for spring cleaning success!

After you’re done cleaning the house, it’s time to step outside and start working on the landscape and patio. Try fixing up some things that haven’t been cleaned in a while. Cleaning outside as well as inside can really give your house the cleaning it needs to get ready for spring!

Cleaning products are very important when cleaning your home. Make sure you purchase eco-friendly cleaning products, or even make your own. Ok, I think my work here is done.  It’s time to get to work! Remember, a clean home is a happy home!
