FREE WINTER CLEANING CHECKLIST
Spring is just right around the corner but if you’d like a little winter-specific cleaning checklist, I’ve got you covered!
I like to break chores and tasks down into musts and maybes – and that’s how I approach seasonal cleaning. I might not get to everything on the list but at least I’ve gotten a couple musts out of the way first. Here’s a little explanation of my winter cleaning checklist – I hope you give it a whirl!
These items are cleaning tasks that I rotate through 4 times a year or seasonally. Hence the winter cleaning checklist. 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 9 basics will make a big difference in your home!
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 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. For what it’s worth, I won’t be cleaning the fireplace.
(Please note: You’ll need to put the calendar in your cart and checkout – it’s still FREE – once you create an account it will save any free printables and you can come back and access them anytime. Upon checkout you’ll see the link for the free printable AND it will also be emailed to you automatically!)
So, are you going to do a little winter cleaning this year?
