My Spring Cleaning Checklist {+ My Dirty Little Secret}

I love Spring, don’t you? I love the fresh air, the buds on the trees…starting my garden…. I do not love spring cleaning. At all. In fact, I dread it.

But, because I’m an adult, I understand that it’s necessary. So. I created a special Spring Cleaning Checklist so that I could feel like I was getting closer and closer to being done. Because being all done with spring cleaning is thebestfeelingever.

So this year, I decided to see if I could make Spring Cleaning a bit easier-I printed out my checklist and got to work with just a few tools:

  1. My Magic Eraser
  2. Microfiber cloths

Because who has time for scrubbing? I have better things that I would like to do with my biceps-like pick up my kids or lift weights at the gym. I don’t want to wimp out because I used my muscles to clean. SO. Now that I’ve shared my dirty little secret…

I live with BOYS. Boys are messy (in case you didn’t know). Which means I need some extra elbow grease. Because (I’m embarrassed to admit this), there’s messes everywhere.

Want some of my best tips?

A Spring Cleaning Checklist Just For You!

Remember, because of Smalls, I have to keep things super clean (or try, anyway). I love my Magic Erasers. LOVE.THEM. They make cleaning so much faster.

Spring Cleaning Your Kitchen

Smalls is learning how to cook…which means the kitchen is burnt. I take my Magic Eraser and go to town. I can get the burnt off of everything, including my drip pans, oven, and even the microwave (don’t ask).

Spring Cleaning Your Bathroom

When you clean your bathrooms, use Magic Eraser to power through hard water build-up and soap scum on sinks, tubs, toilets and glass shower doors.

It also does a great job of scrubbing out stains from that paint soap stuff that the manufacturer claimed was “washable”….

Feel free to spend the extra time relaxing in a bubble bath…just make sure the boys are sleeping first!

Spring Cleaning: Outdoor Tip

I live in the South. I love it down here. but it’s humid. I love humidity…except when it creates more work for me.

My front door always ends up with mildew no matter what I do. And it’s a pain to scrub that stuff off. Plus. It’s messy. I don’t like messy.

    Ugh! Windows I dislike everything about cleaning them glass, curtains etc.

    • Brea on March 29, 2016 at 9:08 pm

      ME TOO!

  2. HS kraftmaking on March 29, 2016 at 10:05 pm

    I dislike to clean baseboards and the oven.

  3. Lindsay on March 29, 2016 at 10:36 pm

    My fave are the bathroom Magic Erasers. I had never used the product line until two weeks ago and I totally get it now. I’m hooked!
    I love everything about cleaning, I’m just a weirdo like that. Lol!

  4. latanya on March 30, 2016 at 5:55 pm

    cleaning grout

  5. Jessica To on March 30, 2016 at 7:22 pm

    I don’t like washing windows.

  6. Lauren on March 31, 2016 at 8:14 am

    I hate cleaning the kitchen floor because it does not stay clean for long!

  7. Kayley on March 31, 2016 at 10:48 am

    I have scrubbing the shower because I can never get it as clean as I’d like it to be.

  8. prasert on March 31, 2016 at 11:42 am

    That’s so much work to be done and not enough time! The kitchen and bathroom are always the hardest

  9. Laura m on March 31, 2016 at 2:36 pm

    I hate cleaning all the blinds and curtains!

  10. David on March 31, 2016 at 3:47 pm

    The worst part about spring cleaning is that so many small things have piled up over the winter.

  11. Sarah Hall on March 31, 2016 at 5:08 pm

    I hate washing down the walls which have gotten dirty during the winter.

  12. Cassandra Eastman on March 31, 2016 at 10:10 pm

    I hate cleaning up the garage!

  13. Nancy Loring on April 2, 2016 at 1:25 pm

    My least favorite spring cleaning job is washing all of my walls. After a long winter with very little fresh air coming into the house I feel like I have to clean the walls or the house would still feel dirty.

  14. ann on April 2, 2016 at 1:28 pm

    putting all of the winter clothes away

  15. Natalie F on April 3, 2016 at 11:42 am

    I don’t mind it so much, I just find it overwhelming. Right now I’m in the season of life with little kids and it just seems like I can’t get to it all. I hate the “getting rid of stuff” because I find it the most challenging part.

  16. donna on April 3, 2016 at 2:27 pm

    cleaning out the clutter everywhere!

  17. Sheila K. on April 3, 2016 at 4:39 pm

  18. Barbara Montag on April 3, 2016 at 6:11 pm

    What I dislike most about spring cleaning is cleaning the windows.
    thank you

  19. Elena on April 3, 2016 at 7:29 pm

  20. Donna L on April 3, 2016 at 8:01 pm

    I don’t like cleaning my oven.

  21. Erika W. on April 3, 2016 at 8:02 pm

    I hate cleaning base boards!!!

  22. Emily on April 3, 2016 at 8:47 pm

    I hate all the sneezing!! I think that means I need to dust more often ?

  23. Melissa C. on April 3, 2016 at 8:53 pm

    All of it? No, really.

  24. Liz on April 3, 2016 at 8:58 pm

    Cobwebs left by my giant Australian spider friends. Ugh.

  25. Carissa on April 3, 2016 at 9:01 pm

    I hate cleaning walks and baseboards!

  26. Mary Cloud on April 3, 2016 at 9:19 pm

    I hate all the dust and pollen flying around choking me up

  27. Sarah on April 3, 2016 at 9:26 pm

    Moving and getting underneath everything that doesn’t get moved that often.

  28. Tabathia B on April 3, 2016 at 9:55 pm

    Cleaning the backyard area and closets

  29. Jesse K. on April 4, 2016 at 9:34 am

    So… I abhor cleaning out the garage in the spring. We clean that and the basement and I never know what I’m going to find :-O

  30. Jamie B. on April 4, 2016 at 9:34 am

    Gotta love Mr. Clean! Those magic erasers saved my bacon when my 4 year old knocked over green Easter egg dye on my in-laws countertops. It wasn’t coming up for anything. Until I used that truly magic eraser!

  31. Heather on April 4, 2016 at 9:59 am

    I hate the actual work. I need my fairy godmother bibbity bobbity boo the work away.

  32. Laurel on April 4, 2016 at 10:04 am

    I hate windows

  33. Judith Martinez on April 4, 2016 at 12:23 pm
