Even if you don’t have the inclination to go full 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 — especially for many of us self-quarantining.
For each room in your home, we’ve listed out tasks to include in a cleaning checklist, organized by level of effort. If you’d like to just “make it pass” (say, to make it presentable for your Zoom conference call or FaceTime game night), we’ve got easy cleaning options to cross off your list. 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.

Totally tackle-able tasks to make your place shine.
It’s springtime, which traditionally is when people tackle a big house clean. And since we’re all spending the majority of our days staying home ... you can see where we’re going. This really is a great time to address those biannual household chores!
