FREE Winter Cleaning Checklist
This week’s focus is on rotating cleaning tasks. Take a little time this week to complete the tasks on February’s cleaning checklist – free here.
Or use a seasonal (in this case, a winter) cleaning checklist. It really depends on your cleaning ‘style’ and what works with your schedule. Rotating cleaning chores are always an often-asked question and my personal preference is to work on a couple deep(er) cleaning tasks every month when I get a few extra minutes or on Fridays.
I thought you might like a little winter cleaning checklist to finish the season out right – think of how easy spring cleaning will be!
So now that you can see the checklist, let me explain it a little bit. I’ve broken it out into 3 main categories because not everyone will want or need to complete every item on this list and that’s okay.
These items are cleaning tasks that I rotate through 4 times a year or seasonally. Some of these items (dust, vacuum) are on my weekly cleaning checklist, so I do those on that day of the week, but I do a more thorough job. For instance, instead of just vacuuming the family room I move the furniture and vacuum under the couch. I dust all surfaces, but I also dust the corners and corners at the ceiling. If this is the only portion of the checklist that you complete, you have still done a great job. These 18 basics will make a big difference in your home!
Deep Cleaning Extras + Bonus Points
If you’ve never done a deep or thorough cleaning and you have extra time on your hands, you’ll want to check these items off your list. If you just washed the insides of your windows last month, you probably won’t need to wash them, check your home and see if any of these tasks should be completed.
Traditional Winter Cleaning Tasks to Add If You’d Like
Seasonal cleaning goes back generations, these tasks are ones that are generally associated with winter cleaning. If you’d like to complete them and it makes sense for you it will be time well spent. If you don’t have time and have never completed them, no need to feel bad – they are just suggestions.
So, are you going to do a little winter cleaning this year? If you like this checklist, you might want to grab the free fall cleaning checklist that matches (and look for spring and summer checklists to come out too!)
