Gather Your Supplies
- Spring Cleaning Guide Checklists
- Mop and Floor Cleaner

Wipe down walls with a microfiber cloth using warm water and a little dish soap.
Wipe down cabinets/drawer fronts with your microfiber cloth and a 50/50 water and vinegar spray. Make sure to test this on them first. If your cabinets do not go all the way to the ceiling, you will need to dust the tops.
Remove everything from the space. Wipe down countertops with an all-purpose spray and a microfiber cloth. If you have granite countertops, do NOT use vinegar.
Light Fixtures and Switches
Dust all light fixtures and wipe down light switches with an all-purpose spray.
Windows and Window Treatments
Clean your windows using a microfiber cloth and polishing cloth. You can use your favorite window cleaner or make your own. If you have windows that can flip open to clean the outside part, do that too.
Open up the window to clean the window tracks. You can use a toothbrush and cloth for this.
Clean the baseboard with a soapy water mixture. Sweep or vacuum the floor and then mop.
Clean the inside of the fridge with an all-purpose spray. Remove everything as you do this. Wipe down the outside of the fridge. I love to get in the rhythm of wiping down the inside of the fridge on grocery day before the new food goes in. This helps it stay pretty clean.
Fill a glass bowl with 3-4 cups of hot tap water. Cut a lemon into pieces and place in the water.
Put the bowl of water and lemon in the microwave and run the microwave until the water boils (usually around 3-5 minutes).
Leave the bowl inside for 5 minutes. Then open it to see if this helped dissolve the grease. You can repeat it if needed. Then clean the inside with an all-purpose cleaner.
The Oven and Stove
If you have a self-cleaning oven, follow the tips according to your oven’s instructions. If you do not, use an oven cleaner to wipe down the inside.
Clean your stovetop with an all-purpose cleaner.
Make sure the dishwasher is empty. Wipe the edges and seal with an all-purpose cleaner.
Check for food at the bottom. If you have a filter in your dishwasher, remove it and rinse it with hot water. You can use a clean toothbrush to scrub it if needed.
Pour one cup of vinegar into the bottom of the dishwasher. Close and run it on a quick wash, hot, and sanitize cycle.
Once that is finished, wipe it down.
