Here in Oklahoma, with all its springtime charm, what better way to celebrate than with a good old-fashioned spring cleaning?


But facing a whole house clean can feel daunting. Don't worry! This comprehensive checklist and cleaning tips will be your guide, room by room, to a sparkling fresh start.


Gather Your Supplies:

Before you dive in, make sure you have the right tools for the job. Here's a basic cleaning arsenal to get you started:

  • All-purpose cleaner - Choose a cleaning solution that meets your standards for effectiveness, safety, and environmental friendliness.

  • Disinfectant wipes

  • Glass cleaner

  • Microfiber cloths

  • Sponges

  • Trash bags

  • Broom and dustpan

  • Vacuum cleaner with attachments

  • Mop and bucket


Safety First: Spring cleaning often involves strong cleaning products. Remember to open windows for ventilation and wear gloves to protect your hands.


Pro Tip: Play some upbeat music! It'll make the cleaning process more enjoyable and keep you motivated. This is cleaning experts approved! Map out your cleaning schedule and be prepared to hit the house from top to bottom.


Let's Get Cleaning!


Room 1: The Kitchen

The heart of the home deserves some TLC. A clean kitchen doesn't just look good, it makes life easier and healthier. Knowing everything has its place means you can find ingredients quickly, and a sanitized environment reduces the risk of foodborne illness.

Cooking becomes a more enjoyable experience when you're surrounded by cleanliness. Here's what to tackle:

  • Declutter countertops: Put away appliances, clear out clutter, and wipe down surfaces.

  • Deep clean the stovetop and oven: Follow the manufacturer's instructions for your specific model.

  • Clean the microwave: Zap a bowl of water with lemon or vinegar to loosen grime, then wipe clean.

  • Wipe down the refrigerator and freezer: Discard expired food, clean shelves and drawers, and don't forget to defrost the freezer if needed.

  • Clean the dishwasher: Check the manual for your dishwasher's cleaning cycle.

  • Don't forget the sink! Disinfect the disposal and faucet, and scrub the basin for a sparkling finish.

  • Wipe down cabinet doors and appliances: Remove fingerprints and smudges.

  • Wash floors: Sweep away crumbs, then mop depending on your floor type.


Room 2: The Bedrooms

Your sanctuary deserves a refresh too! A clean bedroom can significantly improve your sleep quality. Clutter and dust can be visually stimulating and mentally distracting, making it harder to unwind. Fresh sheets and a clear, organized space create a calming environment that promotes relaxation and restful sleep.

  • Declutter surfaces: Put away clothes, clear desks, and tidy nightstands.

  • Wash bedding: Sheets, pillowcases, comforters (check care labels!) – toss them all in the wash for a fresh start.

  • Dust furniture and electronics: Don't forget to wipe down lampshades and ceiling fans.

  • Vacuum carpets and rugs: Pay attention to high traffic areas and edges.

  • Clean windows: Let the sunshine in with sparkling clean windows.

  • Organize closets and drawers: Fold clothes neatly, donate unused items, and consider drawer dividers for better organization.


Room 3: The Living Room

The room for relaxation needs some sprucing up too. A clean living room is a haven for relaxation and unwinding. Free of clutter and dust, it becomes a space that promotes feelings of calmness and peace.


Whether you're entertaining guests or simply enjoying some downtime, a clean living room sets the stage for a more positive and enjoyable experience.

  • Declutter and dust: Clear coffee tables, straighten bookshelves, and dust electronics, furniture, and décor.

  • Vacuum upholstery: Give your couch and armchairs a deep clean.

  • Wash throw pillows and blankets: Follow care labels for washing instructions.

  • Clean windows: Enjoy the beautiful Bartlesville spring view through sparkling clean windows.

  • Mop or vacuum floors: Pick your cleaning method based on your flooring type.


Room 4: The Bathrooms

Let's make those bathrooms sparkle! Beyond aesthetics, a clean bathroom is crucial for good hygiene and overall health. Bathrooms harbor bacteria and mold that thrive in moist environments.


Regular cleaning with disinfectants helps prevent the spread of germs, reducing the risk of illness. A clean bathroom becomes a safe and healthy space for your daily routines.

  • Declutter countertops: Put away toiletries and other items.

  • Disinfect surfaces: Wipe down countertops, sinks, faucets, toilets, and showers with disinfectant wipes or cleaner.

  • Clean mirrors: Buff away any water spots or toothpaste splatters.

  • Scrub bathtubs and showers: Tackle soap scum and mildew with appropriate cleaners. Don't forget shower curtains or liners!

  • Wash bath mats and towels: Toss them in the wash for a refresh.

  • Clean floors: Sweep and mop your bathroom floors.


Bonus Rooms: Don't forget these areas!

  • Entryway: Wipe down the door, clean the welcome mat, and organize shoes.

  • Hallways: Dust walls, light fixtures, and any artwork. Vacuum or mop floors.

  • Laundry room: Wipe down appliances, clean the floor, and organize cleaning supplies.


Pro Tip:  Feeling overwhelmed? Divide your spring cleaning into smaller tasks and tackle them over a few days or weekends.


The Finishing Touches

  • Change air filters: Replace air filters in your HVAC
