1. Organize your laundry room
If you have a small laundry room you'll need to use all the available space you can. A hanging wire storage rack for your wall would work great for storing dryer sheets and orphan socks that need to find their mates. The hooks are a great option to hang lingerie or other small items that need to dry. Unused corners are a great spot to think about adding some shelving. Once you have some shelves, try to get ahead of the mess by wrangling up all your laundry supplies in baskets, jars, and other storage containers.
2. Clean your carpets
This part of your home receives more wear, tear, love, and abuse than possibly any other part of the house. Consider deep cleaning your rugs or carpets at least once a year to remove dirt and debris that gets worn in. Go for a carpet cleaning company who can provide a good steam cleaning rather than those cheap rental machines at the grocery store that don't work too well.
3. Replace outside door mats
After the dreary days of winter, your outdoor welcome mat could use a little freshening up. Replace the worn out mat with a fresh, cheery on to greet your family and guests when they arrive.
4. Test and replace batteries in smoke detectors
It’s recommended to replace batteries in smoke detectors twice a year. Daylight savings is a great time to remember to check them in the Spring and Fall.
5. Freshen up your window treatments
Over time, your curtains and valances attract dust and air pollution. Launder or dry clean your curtains and wipe down blinds with a wet sponge to remove dust.
6. Deep clean your coffee maker
To clean your coffee pot, pour equal parts of white vinegar and water into the tank. Turn it on and run it for half of a cycle, pausing to let it sit for an hour before continuing. Follow by running fresh water through to remove the aftertaste. Run it for 2-3 cycles until the vinegar smell is gone.
7. Simplify and eliminate clutter
Spring cleaning means tackling even the messiest of piles! Eliminate unneeded items in your home or clothes in your closet that you haven’t used recently and won’t miss. A good rule of thumb is if you haven't used it in the last year, toss it. No, you won't get around to using it later, free up space by throwing unused items away or donating them if you can.
8. Organize your home office
Your home office is not exempt from a spring facelift. Organize your files and shred any documents which are no longer needed. Go through your computer and delete unnecessary files and backup important files on an external drive.
9. Dust everything
Spring has no place for dust bunnies. Do a thorough dusting of surfaces, bookshelves, mantels, lamps, ceiling fans, light fixtures and baseboards. Let no corner be left untouched. Your whole family will breathe much better for it. You may want to invest in an air purifier to help keep dust and pollen in your home at a minimum.
10. Prepare for guests
Refresh guest rooms with clean linens, fresh soaps, and fresh scents. Wash the pillows and add flowers for a clean, spring-like feel.
