Make your action plan
One of the hardest parts of spring cleaning can be deciding where to begin and what to tackle first. And if you’re lucky enough to have help, figuring out who will do what.
Let checklists set the agenda
To help you out with your big spring clean, here are seven spring cleaning checklists, one for each room, plus one for outdoor cleaning. Each list contains tasks, tool and product recommendations, and helpful tips. To view or print a checklist, simply click the name of the checklist you’d like to use.
Visualize your progress
Here’s a suggestion: tape the appropriate checklist to the door of the room you’re cleaning and check off tasks as they’re completed. That way everyone can track the progress of each room and share in a sense of accomplishment as you get closer to your goals.
Make safety a priority
As always, read the labels of any product you use so you fully understand all directions and precautions. Consider, too, whether you’ll need special equipment, like safety goggles or rubber gloves, to protect your eyes and skin.
Celebrate a job well done
Once the last checkbox has been ticked and your house is gleaming, treat the whole family to the agreed-upon reward. Whether it’s dinner at a favorite restaurant or a new hammock for backyard relaxing, it’s certain to be a well-earned bonus!
