Spring is finally here! The weather is getting warmer, the grass is getting greener, the days are getting longer and that means it is time to start the Annual Spring Clean.

Cleaning is probably one of my least favorite things to do. As I mentioned in last weeks blog post, I would even go so far as to say that I hate it.  I wish I could claim that I am one of those mothers who are able to stay on top of the weekly chore list,  but I have to admit that it sometimes gets away from me – and by sometimes I mean most of the time.

Because there are seriously so many other things I would rather do than clean.

But since I am a grown up (and a mom) and adulting is something that I need to do, once a year I hunker down and deep clean my home from top to bottom. Aside from a few larger tasks that need to be taken care of monthly or quarterly,  it means I am able to get away with minimal daily maintenance throughout the rest of the year.

So I guess that technically makes me a fan of the once a year major spring cleaning overhaul.

Over the next few weeks, I am going to be posting a series about my Declutter and Deep Cleaning Process (you can find the first post in the series here). I tackle each room in my home, one by one, starting with a major declutter then follow with a very thorough, top to bottom, deep Spring Clean before moving on to the next. Having at least one room completed in its entirety definitely keeps me motivated to keep cleaning. I find if I try to declutter the whole house first and then clean I lose motivation halfway through because I get so overwhelmed with stuff. 

I can’t be the only one who feels that way. 

I know it can be rather time-consuming, doing each room one by one – especially if you are set on doing as thorough of a job possible – but in the end, I find it is one of those things that is totally worth the effort put in.

Now let’s get cleaning….. 

Before you get started you are going to want to gather all of your cleaning tools and supplies. Generally speaking, I like to use Natural Cleaners whenever possible, especially now that I have a little one. Vinegar ar is one of my favorite products to use – it has so many amazing benefits and isn’t harmful to your little ones or your pets.

Tools Needed to Deep Clean Your Bathroom

Once you have gathered your tools it is time to do a little prework and precleaning. Doing this little bit of work at the beginning will help you get the best deep clean possible while making the most efficient use of your time.

Now it is time to work on the middle. This is everything from your tub and toilet to sinks, mirrors, and cabinets. Even though your bathroom(s) are likely the smallest rooms in your house to clean they also tend to be the most tedious. Take your time and do the best job you possibly can.

You will thank me later.

Finishing your Bathroom Spring Clean

After spending hours decluttering and cleaning I usually can’t wait to hop in the shower or tub. As much as part of me hates using something I just spent so much time cleaning there is something so satisfying and relaxing about having a hot bath in a freshly scrubbed tub – especially if dad is taking care of the little.

If you are looking for more tips and tricks on how to conquer the clutter in your life, one of the most valuable resources I have come across is the Conquer Your Clutter Super Bundle from Ultimate Bundles. It is JAM packed full of incredible planners, tools, books, and courses that will not only help you create a clutter-free home but will also help you organize every aspect of your life!

  2. I hate cleaning my bathroom! As of right now it isn’t a complete disaster….but it does need cleaning! Thanks for helping me with these deep cleaning tips. I actually wanted to go clean my bathroom…but then I decided I would sit here and drink my coffee instead and let my husband do it!
    Anyways, Thanks!

  3. I am so implementing this. I normally do a full house cleaning process which is time consuming and so tiring. I love that idea of cleaning a room at a given day.

    • I love cleaning one room at a time. That way it doesn’t take an entire day to do and it keeps me motivated to get the rest of the house looking the same. I hate spending an entire day cleaning and then feeling way too exhausted to do anything else. Glad you like the system!
