Does spring cleaning sound overwhelming? Just reading the phrase can make some people cringe. But, even if you don’t have the energy to do a full-on spring clean, there are some totally tackle-able tasks that will not only quickly make a room presentable, but also give you a sense of accomplishment. Plus, who doesn’t like crossing something off of that pesky cleaning to-do list?
For each room in your home, we’ve listed out tasks to include in your cleaning checklist, organized by level of effort. Scroll down to find the cleaning breakdown for each room, including kitchens, living rooms, bathrooms, bedrooms, and more. Plus, we’ve included eco-friendly cleaning tips and safety tips as you go to boost your efforts while helping the environment.
Here’s how it works: If you’re low on time (and energy), try the “make it pass” cleaning suggestions. These quick cleaning tasks will easily make your rooms presentable.
Want to put in a little more effort? Level up to the “make it pretty” options, which require a little more elbow grease and free time. And, if you’re really into rolling up your sleeves or doing a therapeutic deep scrub (we’re all for taking out frustrations on grimy grout), consider tackling the oft-overlooked or higher-effort places around each room with our “make it shine” suggestions.
