Your Complete “Fall Cleaning” Checklist

Your Complete “Fall Cleaning” Checklist. I stumbled across this excellent deep cleaning checklist–very handy because I actually do my major “Spring Cleaning” in the Fall. Before the debris of our lives gets dragged back into the house after the warmth of summer, I try to make every room as clean and spare as possible.  It’s easier to open all the windows in Fall too to thoroughly air out the house.  Here’s a sample list for the kitchen:

  1. Open windows.
  2. Remove and clean window coverings.  Click here for instructions on cleaning mini blinds.
