These three FREE SPRING CLEANING CHECKLIST PRINTABLES are the tools you need to get you started with deep cleaning your home.
Spring cleaning time is here – It is time to get the dust and grime out our homes and make it sparkling clean for the spring and summer that is coming all too quickly. We’ve all been there. The mess is so big that we aren’t sure where to even start. Use these printables as guides to tackle each room and you will be deep cleaning each room with an organized checklist to help. Each printable is broken down into easy to follow lists with open spaces for you to fill in for your unique situation. Let’s get started!
🧹 Spring Cleaning
I don’t know about you, but when I spring clean, I start with the kitchen. It is the busiest room in my home and gets the most attention…good and bad. I love to dig deep and start fresh in the kitchen, especially after a hard winter/holiday season where everything is cluttered/dumped and is in full disarray.
You should use a methodical approach when using this printable.
- Start from the top and work your way down. You don’t want to start on the floors and have all the dirt, grime and dust from the top shelves coming tumbling down on your freshly cleaned floors. You’ll just have to clean them again.🙁
- If you are doing this all on one day, start off with the “clean dishwasher” item on the checklist. This is the time to use the vinegar to wash your dishwasher while you are busy doing other things in the kitchen. Place a cup of vinegar on the top rack of an otherwise empty dishwasher and run it on a regular cycle. After it has finished, take apart the bottom insides and scrub them down with hot soapy/vinegar water to cut through the grime. Check the owner’s manual of your dishwasher to see how to take it apart for cleaning.
- If you plan to clean the oven today, turn on the self-clean buttons to keep it running while you are doing other kitchen projects. Simply wipe it down when it is finished.
- Remove everything from drawers and cupboards one-by-one and start cleaning from the top down. Before placing them back, make sure you aren’t keeping items you don’t use.
- Toss out any items that are broken or unusable. Give items away or sell them in your neighborhood if you do not use them often.
- Make a list of items that need to be replaced.
- If you are cleaning the drip pans on your stove, we’ve got the best tips and tricks up our sleeves for you. It makes it so easy!!
🚽 Bathroom Checklist
Bathrooms are the next biggest area of concern for me so let’s get started to make them spotless!
Continue with the top down approach like we did in the kitchen areas.
- Remove the shower curtain and run it through the wash. If you can bleach it without ruining it, it is a good time to do that. Add a half of a cup of bleach to the water as it is filling up the washing machine. Add the shower curtain and run the cycle.
- Remove items from cabinets and cupboards so you can wipe them down. Get rid of unused products.
- Now is a good time to replace things like toothbrushes, hairbrushes, etc.
- Address items on the printable such as blinds, fans, fixtures.
- Lastly, clean the floor.
Address each bathroom in your house the same way.
🛏️ Bedroom Checklist
Spring cleaning the bedroom is always the last area I tend to tackle out of the three. Think about how many hours each day you spend in the bedroom. You’ll want it deep cleaned!
- Remove the curtains, bedding and mattress cover to wash
- Determine if your bedding needs to be replaced.
- Before flipping the mattress, sprinkle a liberal amount of baking soda and allow it to stay there for a few hours. It is a great deodorizer! Vacuum the baking soda up and then flip the mattress over. You should repeat the baking soda process on the second side as well.
- Pull everything out from the closet, organize and clean. Now is a great time to have a couple bags: one for donations and one to throw out. I love doing this! If I haven’t worn the piece of clothing in a year, it loses its spot in my closet. My closet space is limited and I hate having things cluttered! Use it or lose it, right?
- Pull everything out from underneath the bed to organize and clean. Toss out unwanted items.
- Clean out the drawers and wipe them down.
- Take a few minutes to wipe down the backs and legs of furniture to give them a really good cleaning. I would love to know where all this dust comes from!
- If you have carpet in your bedroom, make up a batch of homemade carpet freshener to use on your way out after cleaning everything else!
Final Tips: Carry a bag for donations and a bag for trash with you in each room. Also keep a pen and paper to write down items that are broken or need to be repaired/replaced so you don’t forget. My husband tells our smart speaker to add the items to the shopping list, but I haven’t quite accepted Alexa in the home. I still like my pen and paper! 😀
You’ve done it! You now have the most used rooms in your home deep cleaned. I hope the spring cleaning checklist printables helped get you on the right track! It feels so good that you should continue to the family room and dining room.
