If you find it difficult to stay on top of your home cleaning routine, you're not alone. We are so busy each day that of course some things get left behind, so spring is a great time to spruce up those area. If you commit to doing a deep spring cleaning, it'll make those regular cleanings much more manageable for weeks to come.

The idea of giving your home a spring cleaning may seem overwhelming at first, but it doesn't have to be. These top spring cleaning hacks are sure to save you time, money, and sanity!


Wash Bed Pillows in the Washer

Want a more refreshing sleep experience? It all starts with tossing your pillows into the washer this spring. A quick spin removes dust, allergens, and the winter blues, leaving you with fresh, fluffy pillows for a rejuvenating night's sleep.

Use a Lint Roller to Clean Lampshades and Fabric Surfaces

Simplify your cleaning routine by grabbing a lint roller to remove dust and debris from lampshades and other fabric surfaces. This quick and efficient method ensures a polished, lint-free look with minimal effort.

Steam Clean Your Microwave

Look no further than your microwave itself for a quick and easy cleaning tip! You'll need to mix two cups of water and two tablespoons of distilled white vinegar in a bowl and heat it on high in your microwave until it comes to a boil. Let it stand inside for about three minutes and then use a sponge or cloth to wipe your microwave clean.

Clean Your Bath Mats

If your bath mats are machine washable, this will be an easy one. Simply shake out any debris and then run your rug through a regular wash cycle on the cold setting. Most rugs can also be put in the dryer on low, but be sure to hang dry memory foam mats or ones with rubber backing.

Deep Clean Your Washing Machine with Vinegar

Disinfect your washing machine to help it reach its maximum cleaning potential. First run the machine with hot water, then add white vinegar and baking soda, and let them sit for about an hour. Finally, restart the cycle, let the water drain, and wipe it clean.

Freshen Up Your Trash Cans

Make your trash smell a little better by placing dryer sheets on the bottom of the can to help absorb spills and mask odors.

Freshen Up Your Mattress with Baking Soda

Need to freshen up your carpet or mattresses while you're spring cleaning?  DIY with baking soda that you can make today. Not only does it work but it looks cute too, thanks to some lavender buds mixed in.

Throw Away Expired Makeup

Using old makeup and tools can lead to skin irritation or infection. Look through your medicine cabinet and toss concealer, eye shadow, foundation, lip gloss, and nail polish that you've had for more than one year. Lipstick and blush last a little longer so you can keep them around for up to two years.

Descale Your Coffee Maker

You may be cleaning your coffee maker semi-regularly, but when spring rolls around, it's a good time to try descaling. This process tackles limescale buildup caused by hard water, which can affect the taste of your coffee. To keep your cups of joe tasting fresh and delicious, brew a pot with a mixture of water and white vinegar or use a professional descaler. 

Clean Your Cell Phone

Cell phones are notoriously germ infested, but most of us probably don't clean them as often as we should. To keep your phone squeaky clean, wipe it down with a microfiber cloth, which is designed to pick up even the most microscopic particles, including bacteria and viruses. Don't forget to power down first!

Dust Off Your Houseplants

House plants need spring cleaning love too! In addition to doing your usual watering and pruning, you can actually dust off your house plants using a microfiber cloth. This will help your plants breathe better, which in turn will help you breathe better.

Open Your Windows

You can improve your indoor air quality by doing something as simple as opening all of your windows! Opening two windows on opposite sides of a house or room creates a cross breeze, letting the bad air out and the good air in.

Give Yourself time and do you task in zones (Rooms)

If you feel like you don't have time for a spring cleaning spree, you're not alone.

"None of us have time to take a full week to spring clean like the old days. Instead, I recommends breaking your home into zones and then tackling each zone to the best of your ability and you can start with the small task like washing your bathroom rugs or cleaning (or replacing!) your shower curtain.


Once you're finished spring cleaning, you're going to feel amazing and, let's be honest, exhausted. To make things a little easier on yourself next year, start implementing a daily cleaning routine. Like replacing items to designated areas and simple spot cleaning as you go like.
