How To Completely Change The Way You Spring Clean

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):

How To Spring Clean Your Baby’s Closet

How to Spring Clean Your Baby's Closet

Cleaning your closet versus cleaning a baby’s closet is vastly different. For instance a baby is changing sizes every few months. We as adults don’t fluctuate all that often unless we are pregnant or dieting. In addition babies unlike adults are receiving clothes as gifts all the time from grandparents, neighbors, friends and from your late night impulse purchases. Lastly unlike adults who probably have 30-40 staples in their wardrobe, babies can have a 100 or so items. It gets to be a little daunting sorting through everything just to put an outfit together.
