When I was a teenager, one of my side jobs was cleaning houses a few times a month. One lady who I cleaned for taught me to clean everything from top to bottom. It revolutionized the way I approach housework. A little common sense goes a long way, right? But, seriously knock the dust onto the floor then vacuum. All that to say, I still employ her advice today when I clean my own little house, especially when I deep clean. Click here for my spring cleaning checklist. It's long, but worth it. It covers all the basics and leaves your house fresh and ready for the new season. Happy Cleaning!
