Spring means it’s time to open the windows and let in some fresh air, enjoy the daffodils and tulips popping up in the garden (or buy some at the grocery store), and put away the winter clothes and cozy home decor! It also means that it’s time for spring cleaning!
Spring (like the New Year) seems like a time of renewal – a fresh start. Except instead of working on our waistlines or improving our budgets, we usually look at this time to focus on the domestic. Scrubbing our homes from top to bottom, making everything shine and getting rid of things you no longer need/want. While you may love imagining how your home will look after you’re finished with your spring cleaning, you likely aren’t looking forward to the actual cleaning and decluttering. Because spring cleaning can be tough without the proper planning and knowledge, I’ve put together this Spring Cleaning 101 Resource so you would have one place to go to for help! It’s full of spring cleaning tips, spring cleaning schedules, and free spring cleaning printables to help you have a (hopefully) stress-free spring cleaning experience!

When spring cleaning, remember to prioritize. Likely, there’s only just so much time you’re able and willing to spend on spring cleaning. So make sure to do the most important tasks first. Also, consider getting your family involved! Spring cleaning can go a lot quicker (and be a lot more fun) if everyone participates!
How to Spring Clean Your Home- Spring Cleaning 101
These handy resources in this spring cleaning 101 guide will help you to clean every inch of your home! Some are free printables, and others are clever cleaning tricks. All of them will help you make your spring cleaning quick and easy!
Before you get started, make sure to check your cleaning closet and ensure all your cleaning supplies are in good order. If you’ve been waiting to replace some old supplies or get a new vaccuum, now’s the time. The last thing you want is your broom leaving bristles everywhere or your bucket leaking soapy water all over the floor! When I’m spring cleaning, I particularly like to use reusable microfiber cloths, and my Shark Lift-Away vacuum has been very handy when it comes to vacuuming stairs, furniture, and hard-to-reach spots. Like with most things in life, having the right tools makes a difference! Also, here’s a good DIY All Purpose Cleaner that you can use.
