Spring is here, and that means it’s time for SPRING CLEANING! Oh wait, you aren’t excited? Don’t worry because I’ve got you covered! This article is the lazy girl’s guide and checklist to spring cleaning to get y’all motivated.
Open Your Windows
Begin your spring cleaning by opening your windows, as long as it’s not too cold. The breeze will help freshen the air in your house and help y’all start cleaning.
Gather the Supplies
Gather all the supplies you’ll need, and make a list for the store if you run out of an item. Cleaning supplies are typically on sale this time of year, so stock up, everybody! Don’t forget about the mop and brooms. These can get icky and don’t clean as well the further we let them go. And listen, y’all, give yourself permission to get a robot vacuum so you can kick your feet up and relax.
If you begin cleaning before you have everything you need, you’ll become distracted and lose track of what you’re doing.
Clean in Short Bursts
I’m going to assume you don’t like cleaning since you’re reading this post. Lazy cleaners don’t appreciate deep cleaning the house all in one go. That’s perfectly fine! Clean in 10- to 15-minute bursts throughout the day to make cleaning “easier.”
Challenge yourself to clean for an entire hour or two. Y’all will be surprised with how much you can clean with a limited amount of time.
Create a Checklist
You probably think it’s easy to begin at one end of the house and make your way to the other, but you’ll most likely miss areas to deep clean. Find a checklist online, or create your own, to use to stay on top of the task at hand. Don’t be afraid to spread the cleaning over the span of a week or a month.
Make It Fun
Spring cleaning is tedious for those of us who hate cleaning. Having something on to keep the mind busy can help make cleaning fun! Put on some music, listen to a podcast, or enjoy an audiobook while you clean to help pass the time.
