Here are my tips and tricks to Spring clean your home in one day.
What is Spring Cleaning to you?
For me, Spring cleaning is getting all of the hidden areas clean. The areas of your home that you usually skip, or ignore. When I think of Spring cleaning it is more of a deep clean not your everyday stuff.
CLEAN WITH ME HERE:
Where to Start? Personally I like to go by theme. All bathrooms first, clean until completely done, and shut the door. I then go to bedrooms second. Living rooms third. Kitchen and dinning room fourth. Finish up with all mirrors and floors last. Why this order? Well I like to end with the high traffic areas because those are the rooms that your family will most likely be in making more mess. If you are home alone, I would still clean in this order because if you run out of time you are more likely to be in those rooms more often, so more of a chance to finish cleaning later.

I like to start in the bathroom. First spray everything down with your cleaner of choice and put the toilet cleaner in. Then let this sit, while you start a load of any dirty towels. When you return to the bathroom you will be ready to scrub the sink, tub, and tile or countertops. I like to do the mirrors / windows and the floors last. This way you will not spray water or cleaner on them by accident. I also have a top down theory. If you start at the top any dust or debris will fall to the floor that is why you will want to clean the floors last.
Start with changing the sheets. The sheets will cause dust to fly in the air and you don’t want to have to dust twice. Remove any dirty clothes to the laundry area. Put everything that is out away. Hopefully you have already decluttered before you are cleaning (read more here on that subject). Make the bed with the clean sheets and then you dust. Again top down theory. Then you can wipe down the windows and the mirrors and finish with vacuuming and or mopping.
The Living room, kitchen, and any other rooms will be the same system that I described for the bathrooms and bedrooms. Always think top down. The worst thing is when you finish cleaning a room and then realize you forgot to dust the ceiling fan! For me Spring cleaning is going the extra mile. I like to move the couch and vacuum and mop. Vacuum the corners of every ceiling and wipe down the floor boards. These are the everyday things I usually miss or skip because I don’t have enough time.

Hopefully you have had time to declutter your home before you started to clean. If you did not have time my simple suggestion would be to discard the obvious. Throw out any trash or any outdated items. If you have more time, throw out anything that you no longer use or wear. Get rid of anything broken. These small changes will make a large impact and help with the cleaning effort. If you have more time to declutter I would do that before cleaning. I like to go room by room and take everything out section by section. Make 3 piles; keep, trash, donate. This can be very time consuming depending on how much stuff you have. Taking the time for decluttering can transform you entire home and life, so for me it is worth the effort.
