Spring Cleaning Challenge Day 11: Thoroughly Dust and Vacuum

What would a cleaning challenge be without a little dusting and vacuuming? Today's task will have you breathing better!

Use a damp rag followed by a soft dry one and make dust disappear – then vacuum with a vengeance! Don’t forget to wipe down the windowsills, baseboards, TVs and computers, etc. And be sure to vacuum behind the furniture, the coils on the fridge, under the beds, etc., etc. It's tough work but better air quality and shiny surfaces will make it worth it!

When's the last time you dusted and vacuumed with gusto? (And which task do you like better?!)

Haha I've already done this! I also changed the air filters. I even took down the vents and scrubbed them in the tub because my dust rag wasn't getting it all. I also soaked and scrubbed my blinds. Vacuuming is easier, but dusting with the dusting polish make the house smell so good!

I need to dust for sure. I haven't dusted since we moved in at the end of January. I will do that this weekend.

I dusted the other day, but it is time to do it again, I guess and sweep and mop my floors. Bleh, I hate doing the floors.
