Spring Cleaning Checklist

A new season is here! And generally that’s a sign for me to deep clean, cull and reorganise our home – in other words Spring clean. Yes, I don’t just leave Spring cleaning for Spring, I tend to do it at every turn of a new season.

I thought I’d give you guys a copy of our checklist of the thing’s our family does when we Spring clean. Keep in mind this list usually takes about a week to complete – depending on how much you own… and we own a lot!
