Spring cleaning. It’s a load of work, but it’s the best kind of work. There’s nothing quite like pouring a glass of chilled wine or cracking open a cold one and doing that final walk-through. The place feels different — it looks brighter, and it smells like you don’t have pets and kids up to your eyeballs. It even sounds clean — crisp and echoey.
But it’s hard to know where to start, especially if your entire house is, well, a bit of a disaster at the moment. So instead of rolling up your sleeves, wandering aimlessly with no idea what to tackle first — and then giving up, watching old classics on TCM, and feeling guilty — just follow this super-simple spring-cleaning checklist.
