Day 13-Spring Cleaning for the Rest of Us: 30 Days to a Cleaner, Fresher Home

Spring Cleaning

The Challenge:

I have started a series titled, “Spring Cleaning for the Rest Of Us-30 Days to a Cleaner, Fresher Home“. We will be going off of Martha’s spring cleaning checklist here and completing each major task, only we’ll be doing just 1 a day.

Now, I know some of you will likely go on vacation or get sick or maybe you don’t do housework on Sundays…and that’s fine. You’ll just have to double up some other days (or go a bit longer than 30 days). It’s also likely that there will be a day that doesn’t apply to you (maybe it’s a day we wax our floors and none of your floors are the type to need waxing), so you get that day off. Some of you might also have older kids that can help out with some of the more complex tasks, that’s fine too! I encourage you to get the whole family involved, cleaning is everyone’s job .

All that matters is that we get this stuff done, without getting even further behind on our day to day housekeeping.

***Day 13 Task:

Today we’ll be wiping our walls and ceilings. I’m also going to give my white cabinets (sigh) a good wipe down as well (I have to do that weekly though!). Here’s a recipe for a homemade degreaser if you are interested in testing it out.

Wipe Walls & Ceilings: Use a vacuum to remove dust. Tackle stubborn surface grime, especially prevalent in kitchens, with a solvent free degreaser (test it first in an inconspicuous area to ensure it won’t mar the surface).

That’s it for today! Be sure to come back tomorrow for the next task!
