33 Really Helpful SPRING CLEANING Tips & Tricks

It’s spring. And spring means opening up the windows, airing out the house, and cleaning all those surfaces and cluttered corners.  Well, at least that’s what spring is supposed to mean, from what I hear. ;)


And I know this doesn’t have anything to do with a sewing/crafting/recipe/decorating tutorial…..but sometimes I let the housework slip while I’m making other fun projects and the piles build up around me.  But at some point, I crack.  And then, I set everything aside and I start scrubbing.  And scrubbing some more.  And when it’s all done and clean and sparkly, I can resume what I was doing before. So, for one second, we’re going to call “Make It and Love It” – – – – – “Clean Your House and Love It”.  Kind of a stretch?  Ha….I know.  But I can’t work on anything else until I scour the house a bit.


Are you feeling the same way right now at your house?


So, here are some really cool tips I found while scouring the web for ideas for myself.  Maybe some of them will be helpful for you while you’re doing your own Spring Cleaning! :)

    These are really great spring cleaning tips! I am still not ready with the deep cleaning that I was planning to do before the winter comes. It is better if I start with it because it is almost December! Thanks for the wonderful ideas! I need to get my cleaning supplies and start cleaning! :)

    The beauty of your spring cleaning tips is that most of them can be used in general and not only for one season. I needed help with cleaning and you really provide it with your post. Thanks for sharing and keep up the great work.

    One of the biggest mistakes I used to make was trying to overhaul the entire house. I would get started with organizing the kitchen cabinets and then I decided I needed to purge the cabinets. Before you knew it the entire house was a mess and not a single cleaning project actually completed.Set your timer and feel good about what you accomplished in 30 minutes. No need to pretend you are on an episode of hoarders and purge your entire home. Ha ha
