Let the Spring Cleaning Begin!

March 28th, 2010 at 05:37 pm

It feels like spring more and more each day. Yipee!!

Today, I've made our grocery run and done a little picking up around the house. I started a cleaning cycle on our washer, that includes hot water and bleach. I added an additional 5 gallons of water to get the water to the top of the washer. Unfortunately, I put a little too much in and it overflowed from the tub onto the floor underneath! Opps. I have to let it sit for half an hour to clean out the lint/soap buildup and then run it through the cycle. I tried vinegar last week and it didn't go as well as the bleach method.

I'm going to dust some blinds later and wash the insides of the windows. That will take some time, so it probably is my last project for the day.

I will tackle some other spring cleaning projects this week primarily because they need to be done and to keep myself from going shopping. I seem to have a big desire to add a few things to my wardrobe, buy a purse, a new wallet, get a better haircut, as well as invest in some home accessories. I'm sure eventually I will break down on some of those, but for now I need to stay out of the stores.

Here's what I need to accomplish:
clean inside kitchen cabinets
clean outside kitchen cabinets
touch up paint kitchen cabinets
dust intake vents
wash out large trash can
wash van (I'll probably go to a car wash)
vacuum van floor & scrub floor mats
hose out the garage floor

Whoa! That is a lot. So, if you don't see me around here much that's what I'm doing! Tell me about your spring cleaning projects. It just might get me motivated to know others are doing the same.

    We vaccumed under the rug and cleaned the fridge vent. I just went through all the files and threw out a lot. DH cleaned all the parts of the vaccum. I'm taking a quick break from dusting our books. Then I need to throw out old cosmetics. DH needs to wipe the walls and vaccum under the beds sometime this week.

    We do a lot of regular maintenance so its not that much extra. Plus our apartment is so small.

    Wow that is a lot of housework! I was planning a big spring clean up this weekend, but I have been sick with the flu and hence trolling the net instead.

    snshijuptr, that's great! I should do behind the fridge, too. As our homes get larger it seems things take longer.

    Aubergine, I hope you feel better soon.

    We've made start at our house too. It seems to be happening it in an alphabetic way - cabinets, closets and cupboards are done! Next it's walls and windows...not my favorite.
