Have you ever heard of Task Specific Cleaning? I haven’t either until I think I made it up! I tried to Google it to make sure I didn’t read about the concept somewhere and forget about it, I couldn’t find anything. While I’m sure Task Specific Cleaning isn’t new, it’s something new to me. Let me explain!
I hope that by the end of this post a sense of AH HA will wash over you. Spring ends on June 20th. Which means that there is about a month left to Spring Clean. I was so excited in March when Spring began and I started out strong organizing all of our closets and drawers. However my enthusiasm fizzled. Spring Cleaning has completely taken a back-burner to my being sick, us taking trips, us working 9 to 5, starting and growing this blog and just dealing with everyday tasks.
But I am determined to make this final month of Spring count. In order to really complete my deep dive Spring Cleaning I must do one of my favorite things. Make a List!!! I just love making lists, even more so I love checking things off of my lists. If you are like me and you want to really make this final month of Spring count and complete your Spring Cleaning with a fury keep reading! I also have a bonus printable (link at the bottom of the post).
When I used to make Spring Cleaning checklists in the past I would focus on cleaning room by room; but then I realized I would need to get out different supplies for each task in that room – baseboards, windows etc. So instead of doing a checklist that is based on room by room cleaning I decided to create a check list that was Task Specific. Hence the concept of Task Specific Cleaning was born.
Now I must be completely transparent this is a whole lot easier to accomplish when your home is under 1000 sq feet. I probably wouldn’t recommend Task Specific Cleaning to those of you in a 3000 sq ft foot home – although if you want some great cardio – go for it!!!
In order to get started I listed items that need cleaning in each room and then listed the specific tasks that are required to clean those items.
Let’s begin with everyone’s favorite (insert sarcasm here):
