Because: The best way to do this year’s spring cleaning is with a checklist on which you record the various tasks you want to do in a sensible order.

OUR CHECKLIST

A spring cleaning checklist has several advantages: Firstly, you always know exactly how much you have already done and secondly, you can see what still needs to be done. This allows you to keep an overview and reward yourself regularly when you have completed a task.

If you take a systematic approach, you also prevent yourself from forgetting a task or, most annoyingly, cleaning something that you have already cleaned. This makes you more efficient and you’ll finish faster.

Mucking out? Do you want to do a thorough tidy first and muck out right away before you start cleaning? An excellent idea! Because you don’t have to clean what’s not in the way (anymore).

Clean drains, empty garbage cans

If you have carpets, take them out into the fresh air and give them a good beating (carpet cleaning tips). Then leave them rolled up until the rest of the spring cleaning tasks have been completed. Otherwise, the carpets will only get in your way and become unnecessarily dirty.

Then remove cobwebs from ceilings and walls in all rooms and, if necessary, clean or dust lampshades. We have collected tips on effective dusting here.

Then work your way down from the top by dusting shelves, cupboards, picture frames, window sills, door frames, and other horizontal surfaces. If you are particularly thorough, you can also clean the radiators.

Change bed linen

Bedroom, living room, and dining room: The small and medium-sized tasks that need to be done in these rooms during spring cleaning vary from person to person and also depend on your need for cleanliness. You may want to clean the mattress in the bedroom and throw the sofa and cushion covers in the washing machine in the living room. If they don’t have a cover, you can clean the upholstered furniture with home remedies. It may also be worth clearing out all cupboard compartments and drawers to wipe them out with a damp cloth.

Unpopular, but recommended once a year for hygiene reasons: thorough kitchen cleaning. You can plan half a day to a whole day for this. Tasks such as thoroughly cleaning the oven, fridge, and microwave as well as wiping down cupboards and shelves await you. Individual parts such as glass plates or plastic shelves can go into the dishwasher. The particularly brave can also wipe down the extractor hood and replace the extractor filter. Also recommended at least once a year: Clean the dishwasher separately.
