    What is huge for me is washing the curtains, windows, screens and also cleaning behind the couch/stove/fridge. Darling Husband organizes the cabinets in the kitchen all year round so it’s usually pretty good

    Washing the curtains, beating out all the throw rugs, giving the entire house a good dusting.

    Hmm…probably dusting baseboards, going through junk pits such as drawers in kitchen, donating things, moving furniture to vacuum….we dont have curtains but I may dust our wooden blinds!

    I think spring cleaning constitutes as anything you dont do during an normal “cleaning”.

    I’m reorganizing a couple closets and taking items to goodwill. Also, washing all the blinds and washing the cabinets. And ceiling fans too!

    Darling Husband hired me a cleaning lady at the beginning of the month and she has been doing my spring cleaning 🙂 Windows washed, bathroom deep cleaned, balcony cleaned. Now she does floors and kitchen and bathroom each week and it makes me super happy to not have to come home and deal with washing floors. I highly recommend outsourceing spring cleaning if that is an option anyone is considering!

    We just scrubbed and scoured this place a few weeks ago when we moved in, so I suppose that was our Spring Cleaning adventure.

    I’m going through each room and just giving everything a good cleaning! I like giving the inside of the fridge a good scrub. I already went through a bunch of our kitchen cabinets & rearranged everything to make it more efficient & fit more things. Our windows really need cleaning too.. hate that job. My biggest spring cleaning job so far was scrubbing our greenhouse! All the windows got so dirty, so I took out all our planting stuff and scrubbed every inch of the windows inside & out. Looks so much better though 🙂

    Everything else pretty much gets done anyway. Those pesky windows, though…

    Cleaning the oven & stove! Worst job ever, but it has to get done

    I hadn’t really thought about it. Our yard needs more of a spring cleaning than the house!

    I do need to wash the windows and clean out the kitchen cabinets though.

    I don’t have to do anything this year as we are getting ready to move in to  brand new house so everything is already clean!

    We’ve been working on cleaning out our storage spaces, closets, cabinets and behind appliances. We will eventually get to curtains and windows too!
