Spring IS here!  I hear the birds chirping, the perennials are coming back to life & my winter sweaters are too heavy again.  So you know what that means... It's time for Spring Cleaning! Here's a handy checklist to get you focused: 

 Clean out the garage.

 Inspect the roof and gutter.

 Power wash the outside of the house, including windows.

 Drain all sediment from your hot water heater.

 Donate clothes not worn for more than two years.

 Wash walls using 1/2 cup ammonia, 1/4 cup white vinegar and 1/4 cup baking soda to 1 gallon of warm water.

 Wash all inside windows. Vacuum out the tracks.

 Vacuum/wash/dry clean all window coverings.

 Dust and wash light fixtures and chandeliers.

 Wash all knickknacks. Vacuum books and shelves.

 Vacuum lampshades. Replace lightbulbs.

 Deep clean shower, toilet, floor and sink.

 Inventory the medicine cabinet and toss expired medicines (please do this properly! Contact your local pharmacy and/or law enforcement).

 Defrost freezer (if needed) and wash out refrigerator.

 Clean oven and soak stove rings and drip pans.

 Vacuum front coils and motor to remove dust and dirt.

 Launder all blankets and bedding. Turn mattresses.

 Move furniture to the center of each room and vacuum thoroughly. Shampoo carpets.

 Have a garage sale or donate the items that you're no longer using.
