Spring Cleaning Guide

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.

 

It’s filled with food, need I say more?

  • Take out all food—dispose of things that have passed their best before date and make note of things you’ll need to replenish.
  • Wipe down containers that have drips or are sticky.
  • Remove shelves and drawers (if possible) and wash in the sink with warm, soapy water. Set aside to dry.
  • Vacuum any debris and then spray the interior with a mixture of water and vinegar.
  • Wipe down with a soft rag.
  • Replace all shelves and drawers, and then food.
  • Extra points if you add bins or lazy-Susan’s to corral like items and make things easier to access.

 

Your mattress is a big investment and you spend a lot of time on it, so you should take care of it. Here are a few things you can do to keep it in excellent condition.

  • Wash all bedding including pillows (please follow item’s washing directions) which you can hang to dry outside or throw in the dryer with a few dryer balls to fluff.
  • Rotate your mattress 180° for even wear.
  • Spot clean any stains then sprinkle with baking soda to remove odours; leave for a few hours so it can really work.
  • Vacuum your mattress—make sure you get into the seams to clean all dust and debris.
  • Use a mattress protector to keep your investment safe.

 

Congratulations! You reached the end of your spring cleaning checklist. No sweat, right?
