Spring Cleaning Checklist Nothing feels quite as satisfying as coming home to a clean home. Since cleaning your house from top to bottom can be daunting, not to mention time consuming, take it slowly! Whether you have 20 minutes to freshen up or the entire weekend to tackle your to-do list, here are some previously overlooked areas that you can clean today.
Couch, sofa, chesterfield—whatever you call it, it works hard for you. Give it a little TLC so it can keep up with your movie marathons and epic game nights.
Take off cushions and vacuum up dust and food.
Spot clean any stains, use a steam cleaner or remove cushion covers and wash.
Rotate cushions (if possible) for even wear.
Wash throw pillows (please follow item’s washing directions) or hang outside in the sun to kill dust mites and neutralize odours.
While you’re at it in the living room, give your rug a thorough vacuuming then hang it outside like the throw pillows. Be sure to rotate the position of the rug when you replace it, so it wears evenly.
