Spring is just around the corner and your spring cleaning list is probably growing larger and larger with each passing day. Need help prioritizing? Here are the top 8 things you should have on your checklist!

Fridge

One of the most important parts of your kitchen, your fridge should be wiped down on a regular basis. Now, not many of us have time to do this, but taking the time at least once every few months – and especially on your spring cleaning spree – to pop out your drawers and wash away food bacteria and spillage with warm, soapy water you’ll be thankful for cleaner, better tasting food.

Ovens and Toaster Ovens

Sure, you can replace tin foil to limit spillage when cooking but your oven’s baked in grime is probably one of the most stubborns messes to get rid of. 

Use your oven’s self-cleaning function or place a hot, wet cloth on top of the burned spots to make them more malleable. All it takes for a fresh clean is some baking powder and a heavy pad to rinse and wipe dry.

Junk Drawers

Since when do we have three ice cream scoops? Just how many almost-identical knives do you have? Many people lose track of what they have in unorganized kitchen and bathroom drawers. This simple organization task can save you a lot of money in new purchases with a simple divider. Whether it’s makeup, crafts, cutlery, or cords – you can get creative with your newly organized drawers!

Time for Drains!

Chances are, you don’t think about the drains your home until they become clogged. From the kitchen sink to your shower, bathtub, and that one utility room sink you only use for the most disastrous of messes – it’s important to guarantee your water is free-flowing. 

Simply mix 1/2 cup of baking soda with 1/4 cup of salt, followed by heated vinegar or buy store-bought drain cleaner. No more soaking in old, gross water.

Furniture

How often do you vacuum your couch? Most people would probably say “You vacuum your couch?”

Cloth furniture holds onto all kinds of dust and it’s important to go over with a handheld vacuum at least once a year. This is especially true if you have pets and have guests in your home often! Help your friends avoid their allergies!

Toys

Spring cleaning doesn’t just mean disinfecting and vacuuming. It’s a great time to organize toys and inventory what your kids may or may not be playing with anymore. 

Consistently, donation centers see a rush of donations after spring cleaning. Among some of the most common donations include toys and clothes – especially from families who have outgrown their items.

Vacuum

Not only is it important to clean your carpets, but it’s important to make sure your tools are in working order.
