Here are the areas in my home I clean twice a year, unless they need to be cleaned sooner:

  • Clean the window treatments. Drapes can be taken down and dry cleaned, machine washed or vacuumed with the upholstery attachment. Check the cleaning tag to make sure you don’t damage them. Sheers can usually be washed in the machine and valances can be vacuumed.
  • Shampoo the carpets.
  • Vacuum the sofa and chairs. Don’t forget to vacuum under the cushions.
  • Clean the blinds. I like to put my hands in a sock, spray with cleaner and go to town. You will definitely need more than one sock!
  • Clean the oven.
  • Clean the windows. A great trick is to clean the inside with a squeegee going vertically and clean the outside going horizontally. This will help you see any streaks. Also, choose a cloudy day to clean the windows to avoid spots from the sun.
  • Change the batteries in the smoke and /or carbon monoxide detector.

So, there you have it! By learning how to effectively spring clean your home, you will be able to keep it clean throughout the year.

    These are great tips! I desperately need to clean my blinds and my windows. It’s also about time for a major cleaning of all the baseboards, too. Quite possibly my least favorite household chore!
