A Spring Cleaning Checklist to Help Get You Started

Happy April! Spring has sprung and it's time to spring clean our homes. Oh, the joy!

Now that we are all at home during the coronavirus crisis it makes sense that we at least tackle our spring cleaning since we literally have a ton of time on our hands.

Now I will be the first to tell you that I hate cleaning my house but I enjoy living in a clean house so it has to be done. I was recently listening to the radio and heard about a spring cleaning challenge for the month of April and I thought that would be a great way to pass the time and get my house in order at the same time.

So far I have done a few things in my kitchen already like throwing out expired food and cleaning the microwave and toaster. But I really want to give my floors a good clean and I'm out of my refill for my Bona Mop. I'll have to break out the old fashion mop and give it a go.

Now I realize some of you may be having a hard time finding cleaning supplies and I shared a post a while ago on how to make your own DIY household cleaners out of things like vinegar, baking soda, and essential oils.

Hopefully, this list is helpful to you. Let's challenge each other to do as many of these tasks as possible this month.

Have you started on your spring cleaning yet?


  1. This is Def what I’ve been on during quarantine! Organization is key!

  2. Girl, I've been cleaning every, single, day!!!! Cleaning out of boredom. Great list! What I got left is cleaning out my kitchen cabinets of old papers.

  3. Great List! My sister is into Essential Oils and has been teaching my family all about cleaning with them since there is a shortage right now on EVERYTHING!

  4. I have been doing home projects that have been on the list but I haven't had time. As a result I've been doing a lot of cleaning and organizing.
