Spring Cleaning : Gather Your Tools
Even if you’re not ready to jump on the spring cleaning train quite yet, you can still print out your FREE checklist and take inventory of your tools. I like to keep things as simplified and easy as possible when it comes to spring cleaning. I don’t have a full day or two to devote to just spring cleaning but I do have little chunks of time throughout the course of a month or so. In order to keep it easy, I put all the tools together for my spring cleaning and then I just grab the tools, my favorite cleaners and I can clean when I have a couple minutes. You can totally do that!
Here’s my little spring cleaning bucket:
And the fabulous tools all tucked inside:
Take inventory of what you already have on hand and if you need anything from the store to add to your spring cleaning bucket, jot it down on your list.
Here are links to the tools I love in case you’re interested (you can see more of my favorite tools in the Amazon Store on the sidebar – I earn a small % of sales from your click – thank you!):

I love your site and all of your great tips. I just recently started making my own laundry detergent and cleaners and it is such a great change – I love being able to pick my scents with essential oils. There is one thing I was confused about though as I start my spring cleaning – I noticed that you have a duster, a dusting mitt, and you’ve mentioned using microfiber cloths to dust before as well. Do you use each one for different types of furniture or different types of cleaning i.e. quick dust to keep things clean vs. polishing and dusting?

I use different dusters for different surfaces – if I’m dusting coffee tables or end tables I am probably using a microfiber cloth. If I’m doing a quick dust in the dining room I am most likely using a feather duster to get in between crevices and cracks. I use the dusting mitt for electronics primarily but will use if for windows too. Honestly, it’s more on a whim and whatever works for at the time 🙂 You could dust your whole house with just one tool if you prefer it. I guess I get bored easily and like to break it up with different tools 🙂
The link for the duster is no longer linked to a product. Can you provide a new link or the brand and name of the duster so I can search for it? Thanks!
