Happy Easter! Well, the first day of Spring was just last week and I celebrated by rolling up my sleeves and scratching a few items from my spring cleaning checklist. Now, I clean my home often, but I only deep clean twice a year. It's always at the start of spring and right before Thanksgiving so everything can be sparkling clean for the holidays. I really love a clean space and the feeling of knowing your home is truly clean is just deep down satisfying.
When I started cleaning, I didn't want to overwhelm myself so I just slowly began to tackle one room at a time, one corner at a time. Bathrooms and kitchens are the worst because they get the dirtiest so I decided to begin with the kitchen. So, this is what my week looked like.
Monday: Wipe down the top of the cabinets and wash the ceramics I store there.
Tuesday: Wipe down cabinet fronts. Clean windows and windowsills
Wednesday: Wipe down walls and backsplash. Clean the microwave inside and out.
Thursday: Clean the oven. I had already used oven cleaner the night before, so it was only a matter of wiping it clean.
Saturday: Clean the refrigerator inside, the top of it and the doors.
Sunday: Sweep and mop the floor.
Whew... Okay, now I'm exhausted.
