Start By Decluttering
Before you begin deep cleaning every room in the house, start decluttering.
Consider assigning every item in your home its own designated spot. After you use it, you’ll know to put it back where it belongs. Giving each item a designated spot will help you avoid clutter in the future.
Otherwise, consider donating a few of your items. A minimalistic approach can give dust fewer places to land.
Move Room to Room
As you begin your house cleaning routine, consider playing your favorite playlist to make the process a little more enjoyable. Then, tackle each room in your home.
Start in the kitchen by:
- Cleaning the inside of the dishwasher and fridge
- Wiping down appliances
- Cleaning the sink
- Removing items from the cabinets and fridge
- Disinfecting the trash can
- Cleaning your countertops
- Cleaning the grout
In the living room, start vacuuming upholstered furniture. Get underneath and behind each piece of furniture, too.
Otherwise, make sure to clean your electronics, the baseboards, and window sills.
Pull your winter bedding out of storage and give it a wash. Otherwise, swap items in your closet out for seasonal wear. Make sure to vacuum under the bed and organize the closet.
In the bathroom, clean the:
- Showerhead and faucet
- Tile surfaces and grout
Make sure to remove any hardware buildup from your shower as well.
Wash the Windows
As you move throughout your home, consider giving your windows a little extra attention. Consider washing the inside and outside of each window before the colder weather rolls in.
You can use equal parts vinegar and water for shiny windows.
Clear Away Cobwebs
Use citronella essential oil on your air filter to repel spiders. The clean scent will help your home feel cozy, too. Otherwise, use a broom to get any webs down within the interior of your home.
You can also use a water hose to remove any webs that are lingering outside.
