Spring Cleaning Tips with Free Printable Deep House Cleaning Checklist

I know I know, most people don’t like cleaning, but something about spring cleaning makes your house feel new and fresh, and really brings the sunshine in! I always do an annual deep house cleaning during this time of the year, so I wanted to share with you a few spring cleaning tips that I have picked up along the way!

Spring Cleaning Tips To Make It Easy and More Fun For Everyone

Spring Cleaning Tips with Free Printable Deep House Cleaning Checklist

Get your cleaning supplies ready! Aside from cleaning appliances and cleaners before I begin my spring cleaning I make sure to restock on my cleaning and organization essentials. Are your paper towels magical? Mine are amazing! Having high-quality paper towels, toilet paper and bathroom tissue can make cleaning easier and less messy.

Make it a family affair! Spring cleaning doesn’t have to be (and shouldn’t be!) a one person job. Make sure you ask for help when you need it. In our house, we train our kids to clean. I give them spray bottles with water and some paper towels that they can use to wipe table tops, counters, small decors and other stuff that they can easily reach.

I never run out of paper towels because there’s just so many uses for it. I love using it to polish my stainless steel refrigerator, shine glassware and even to scrub off grime on stovetops.

Another thing that you can let kids help you with is to ask them to organize stuff. I already started spring cleaning our bathrooms this week and I asked my kids to help me. I assigned them to restock our bathroom tissue, and they were so happy and proud to help.

Break it up! Trying to spring clean your entire house in 1 day will stress you out, and details will get missed. Make sure you give yourself enough time to get it all done without pulling your hair out!

Make a schedule! We do this every year. I personally spread my spring cleaning throughout a week and focus on 1 area per day. Making a schedule allows you to keep track of what has been done, and what needs to be!

Go Natural! Using natural and homemade cleaners will save you some money and help the environment! This is very important especially if your kids are helping you clean, you don’t want to expose them to chemicals from harmful cleaning products. Just give them a simple water bottle spray plus Viva® Towels.

Relax! Don’t freak out if things don’t get done as fast as you want them too, it’s just a little dust, it’s going to be ok!

Here are some must-have cleaning supplies for your house:

  1. All-purpose cleaner

  4. Broom and dustpan

Spring cleaning is a great way to freshen up your home after a long winter and prepare for the warmer months ahead.

Deep cleaning every room in the house can be a daunting task, but breaking it down into steps can make it more manageable. It’s a great way to refresh your living space and maintain a healthy environment. 

Here are the steps you can follow to deep clean every room in the house:


Before you start the deep cleaning process of your home, remove any clutter or items that are not necessary in the room. Sort items into piles of things that you want to donate, throw away, or keep.


Dust all surfaces, this includes shelves, picture frames, and furniture. You should use microfiber cloth or duster to capture dust instead of spreading it around.

Clean windows

Use a glass cleaner and a squeegee or paper towels to clean all windows in the room.

Vacuum and/or sweep

Vacuum or sweep the floors in the room, including under furniture and in corners.

Clean surfaces

Use an all-purpose cleaner or cleaning solutions to clean countertops, sinks, toilets, showers, and tubs.
