Can you guess what I'm up to this week?
Yep. Spring cleaning!
I have a couple of days to spend working on this project and I'm trying to get as much as I can done in that time. This probably won't be the most thorough spring cleaning job that I've ever done and I may not even finish the whole house but what I can do will make a big difference and I can move on to other things! As FlyLady says, "Housework done incorrectly still blesses your family."
While I strive to keep my home reasonably clean, I probably don't clean as much as I should. I think overall, I'm more neat than clean. Funny how a reasonably neat house can fool folks into thinking it's really clean! :-)
So in light of that information, it's time to do some real cleaning!
What I hope to accomplish:
*wash windows and mirrors
*sweep and mop floors
*vacuum, wash and shake out rugs (depending on type of rug)
*dust and wipe all surfaces, furniture, decorations, table and chairs
*wash throws, pillow covers and curtains, if needed (only if needed!)
*scrub baseboards, doors,doorways, cabinets/woodwork and window frames
*wash spots on walls and ceilings, if needed
* wash shower curtain and bathmat
*deep clean tub (More than a quick swipe is what I mean here!)
* regular cleaning of sink and toilet
Kitchen and Laundry Room
* use oven cleaner on oven
*clean burners and cover with new foil
*scrub outsides of appliances
*tidy laundry room a bit
What I Won't Be Doing
*scrubbing entire walls and ceilings
*cleaning out cupboards
*moving every single piece of furniture (although I will move some)
*organizing and decluttering every room (which I love to do, although is something is obvious then I will take care of it!)
*spending hours on every room. I simply don't have the time for that this time around. So I'll get what really needs to be done and work on the rest another time.
And now I'm off to give this house a freshening!
