100 Spring Cleaning Tips and Tricks
I get excited this time of year. Not because I love to clean, cause I don’t – but because I know warm weather is coming. I can throw open my windows and let the fresh air in. Now, again…I don’t really love to clean but I do love having a clean house and being organized so the reward is worth the work.
Anyhoo, our Moms Check In moms are talking about spring cleaning tips this week and we’re sharing 101 Spring Cleaning tips and tricks to make things easier. If you have any awesome tips, please drop us a comment or chat with us on our social media channels using #MomsCheckIn.
101 Spring Cleaning Tips and Tricks:
Sharing our own spring cleaning tips…
“Vinegar and baking soda can go a long way! Seriously, I’m not sure there is much that those two things can’t clean up! I think it’s important to keep up on the cleaning, otherwise it just gets overwhelming. Plus, I don’t know about you, but I function so much better in a clean and organized home!”

“ As soon as it starts warming up and I’m able to open my windows, that’s when the Spring Cleaning bug bites me. One of my favorite things to do before I ever even get started is to pour some PineSol into the sinks to clean with, but to also make the house smell good. I love the smell of it. I get rid of tons of stuff and then organize what’s left. We go through everyone’s closets, drawers, all the cabinets and even under the beds. We wash down walls and give everything a good wipe down, change filters, batteries in smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. We even spring clean the garage! I like to keep a box or garbage bag handy for things to donate to the Goodwill. Tip: take those donation items straight to your vehicle. If you set them down in a corner, they’ll end up staying there for years haha!!!“

“When spring fever hits me I just want to clean house! And not always in the literal sense. I mean I want to get rid of stuff, and lots of it! This is the time of year I go through closets and get ready to consign or yard sale things we don’t need anymore. I find that is my biggest problem in keeping our house orderly – we have too much stuff. Once I purge, I try to organize the things that made the cut. These simple solutions have been so helpful so far this year. Organizing is an ongoing (probably never-ending!) process for me!“
“I love freshening up the whole house when spring hits! After a long winter, I can’t wait to air out the house and give it a good cleaning. Mike and I divvy up the chores so that we can tackle them together. Now that Sam is a little older, we‘re also including him. It feels great to work as a team and have a clean home to enjoy. I also like to take advantage of free printables to help keep myself on a cleaning schedule and organized once we purge old items.“
