My 14-Day Spring and Fall Cleaning Checklist Printable

This spring (or fall) cleaning checklist includes a free printable schedule to plan out your method! Find out how to divide your home into zones by room (like bathrooms, bedrooms, kitchen, etc.) and get tips from this huge list of cleaning ideas.

My original cleaning schedules really have stood the test of time. Even though I've added here and taken away there from the original schedule and the spring/fall cleaning checklists over the years, the essentially remain the same. However, I thought the seasonal cleaning checklists could use a little bit of a format update – that's what I've got for you today!

When I first published the spring/fall cleaning checklist, it was divided into zones by room, but didn't have a specific day-to-day plan. Since we've all got a little bit of time at home on our hands right now, it's the perfect time for a little bit of spring cleaning. With this system, you can complete the spring cleaning checklist in just about an extra hour of cleaning a day!
