32 Spring Cleaning & Organization Tips & Tricks

Pin It

I don't know about you, but I'm able to be more creative (and all around happy) when my house is clean and organized. As hard as I try, and no matter what kind of schedule I *think* I can stick to, I always seem to get behind on the cleaning. I usually get a hankering to do some cleaning and organizing during the spring, so I thought I'd compile some awesome cleaning and organizing tips. And then hopefully I can get back to feeling creative!!
NOTE: Some of these tips and tricks I have personally used and tested, but there are some that I haven't. Therefore, I can't attest to the usefulness of all these tips.

We've also got a few spring cleaning tips from our Facebook readers:

Amy Allender says..."I microwave a bowl of water for 3 minutes before cleaning the microwave. All the baked on splatter wipes right off!"
(Amy, I do this too! I've seen things floating around the internet saying to use vinegar, but water works just the same!)

Meredith L. says..."If it's not pretty when it's clean, I won't be motivated to keep it that way! When it looks pretty (i.e. baskets, labels, underlying theme/colors in the decor, nice smells, etc) then I actually enjoy cleaning to keep it looking that way!"

Christie M. says..."My step son actually passed this on to me.. Clean the fans and ac vents then wipe with endust or something similar. It helps keep the dust from sticking. So far it has worked well here, in two months time I can still run a cloth over a fan blade and not see any dust!"
