Posted by Gunk Getter Blog on

As the days get longer and the flowers start to bloom, it's that time of year again - spring cleaning season! Spring is the perfect time to give your home a deep clean and declutter, so you can start the new season feeling fresh and organized. To help you tackle this annual task efficiently, we have put together the ultimate spring cleaning checklist to guide you through every room of your house.


1. Clear out the Pantry

Start your spring cleaning in the heart of the home - the kitchen. Begin by clearing out your pantry and getting rid of expired items. Wipe down shelves, organize food items, and take note of what needs restocking.

2. Deep Clean Appliances

Don't forget to give your appliances some love. Clean the oven, microwave, refrigerator, and dishwasher inside and out. Remove built-up grime and food residue to keep them working efficiently.

3. Scrub the Countertops

Wipe down and sanitize all countertops, backsplashes, and cabinet doors. Address any stains or sticky spots to give your kitchen a fresh and welcoming feel.

4. Dust and Vacuum

Clear out cobwebs, dust the furniture, and vacuum the floors, including under the furniture. Refresh upholstery and pillows by giving them a good shake or wash.

5. Declutter Shelves and Tables

Sort through books, magazines, and decor items on shelves and tables. Keep what brings you joy and donate or recycle items you no longer need.

6. Wash Windows and Curtains

Let the light shine in by cleaning windows inside and out. Don't forget to wash or vacuum curtains and blinds to eliminate dust and allergens.


7. Scrub the Shower and Toilet

Give your bathroom a spa-like feel by deep cleaning the shower, tub, sink, and toilet. Use a good scrubbing brush to tackle grime and build-up.

8. Organize Toiletries

Declutter your bathroom cabinets and drawers. Check expiration dates on products, organize toiletries, and create a system that works for you and your family.

9. Freshen Up Towels and Mats

Wash and replace towels, bath mats, and shower curtains for a fresh start. Consider adding a new scent or color to liven up the space.


10. Rotate Mattress

Prolong the life of your mattress by rotating it seasonally. Vacuum the mattress surface and wash bedding, including pillows and duvets.

11. Clear Out Closet Clutter

Spring cleaning is the perfect time to declutter your closet. Donate clothes you no longer wear, organize items by category, and create a donation pile.

12. Dust and Vacuum Thoroughly

Complete your bedroom refresh by dusting surfaces, vacuuming floors, and cleaning light fixtures. Enjoy a serene and dust-free sleeping environment.

Spring cleaning may seem like a daunting task, but with this ultimate checklist, you can break it down room by room and make your home sparkle. By following these steps, you'll welcome the new season with a clean, organized, and refreshed space that brings a sense of calm and renewal to your life.
