Spring will be here in 6 days! Do you know what that means? It’s time to get out the cleaning supplies, mops, brooms and dustpans, scrub brushes and get to work! I know, it’s boring and hard work, but here are 6 ways to get ready for Spring while the snow is still on the ground and the warm weather on the horizon.
1. Music, Good Music
I was listening to the radio this morning and a girl called in asking for a song to clean to. My question was – Why doesn’t she just use Spotify? Check out this fun Spring Cleaning Playlist: Ultimate Cleaning Playlist.
2. A quick snack
Grab an orange, energy drink, coffee, chocolate ;), something to sustain you.
3. Supplies –
A phone to call a maid – ok, no.. Don’t call a maid, because you really can clean yourself. You don’t want a stranger looking at your dirty underwear, do you? Clean up your own mess… A few very important supplies that you must get before you start.
-Mop, Broom, Dustpan (
How about this great bucket and mop set from DealDash!

-Cleaning cloths/ sponges
-A good vacuum – A Dyson Vacuum auction found on DealDash:
-All-purpose cleaning supplies, window cleaner, floor cleaner.
My favorite cleaning supplies come from the Method line of products found at Target. Safe to use around babies and pets. Method cleaning products not only work well and smell delicious – they look really cool on the counter too. Really. Take a look!
4. 3 Boxes – 1 Room
Pick one room and stick to that room until it’s clean. Start out by taking a box or basket and picking up everything that doesn’t belong in that room, put it in the box to put where it goes later. Next, get a box or bag that you can use to put in anything you no longer have a use for and donate it to a local Salvation Army or Goodwill. Grab a garbage bag and box for recycling and pick up any trash or recyclables. Put everything away where it goes. Next, clean all of the dirty surfaces and floors.
5. Move on to another room – repeat step 4.
6. Celebrate your newly cleaned home by going out to dinner with gift cards won on DealDash!
