How many of you do Spring Cleaning?

Do you really clean from top to bottom? How long does it take you to get your house done? I'm starting mine today, hoping to be done by Thursday. I do a thorough cleaning including washing baseboards and blinds and everything! But I actually find it kinda fun to put on music and get things accomplished so I'm excited!

  • I do it 2 times a year...spring and fall right before we have to "close up the house" for the winter...that way we aren't trapped in the house all winter with dust and grime and all for the winter....but I usually try to scrub/ dejunk a room/ closet/ area a day....usually takes me a few days to do the whole house

  • my mom never made me wait til spring.. we clean everyday. O__o i've always hated it. but whenever we wanted to go out or do something.. at least there were no thoughts of something having to be done.
    or people could come over. and you wouldn't have to rush around trying to get your house looking nice.

  • I clean one room each day in my home top to bottom year round. I spend 2 hours a day cleaning and doing laundry and my house is immaculate.

  • It will take me the rest of the week, I started on Sunday, but I am taking tmorrow off cause it is my birthday and I am pregnant so I am taking alot of breaks. But I am planning on doing alot too, touching up paint on walls, getting stuff together for donations, putting together the nursery and rearranging the girls room.

  • We just moved in to this house in October, and at that time everything was super clean...so, although I do spring cleaning, I'm hoping this year will be pretty easy...as we haven't really had enough time to clutter up closets and stuff yet. I love it too, its a huge project and I feel a real accomplishment when its done. We've already done our windows inside and out, but I will take a day off of work and send the kids to daycare and have the whole house to myself and I will most definitely jack the music!
