Introduction: The Ultimate Spring Cleaning Checklist

About: I'm a teenager with a passion for building and tinkering and I'm here at Instructables to show off my creations and hobbies and maybe earn some money while I'm at it.

If you are about to start spring cleaning but don't know how this is the place to be. This document compiles a checklist of must-dos before and while cleaning. These are taken from personal experience and the internet, so I hope it will be helpful to you.

Step 1: Here It Is!

- Restock your cleaning supplies. Don't forget to get common things like baking soda, vinegar, and soap. Also, make sure you still have things like a microfiber mop and a vacuum.

- Wipe ceilings and walls. Use a vacuum attachment to clean the dust off and then use a moist towel to erase any grimy stubborn spots.

-Use grout sealers to reseal the cement-like stuff in between walls and use a small brush to apply it for maximum impact.

-Use feather dusters for dust EVERYTHING. Bookshelves, closets, tops of ceiling fans and spots that rarely see the light of day. Take everything off first, then dust until happy.

-Change the batteries in your smoke detectors. The last thing you want is to wake up to find your house encased in flames while the battery is dead.

-Change the lightbulbs and dust them while you're up there. Try to use LEDs to save money and electricity.

-Check to see that pipes are all clean and fixed. If there is brown water coming out, change your pipes because the rust might be leaching into the water.

-Organize! This is one of the most important parts of Spring Cleaning. Throw out any old, useless trash lying around and sort items. Trust us, it will make you feel a lot better afterward.
