Spring Cleaning Challenge Day 9: Dust & Vacuum Everywhere

Posted by   + Show Post

Welcome to Day 9 of the Spring Cleaning Challenge!

When is the last time you thoroughly dusted your house? After you have everything cleaned and organized, it's time to dust and vacuum. Use a damp rag followed by a soft dry one and make dust disappear. Wipe down windowsills, baseboards, TVs and computers, etc., before you vacuum. When you vacuum, be sure to vacuum under/behind furniture, the coils on the fridge, etc.

When's the last time you dusted and vacuumed with gusto?
Which task do you like better??
What are your tips for making dusting and vacuuming quicker and easier?

I am more partial to vacumming than dusting I think. It just seems like less work. I recently did a decent dusting job in the livingroom, but a lot more needs to be done all over the place. Maybe when its empty and we are cleaning before we move it will get done. Lol

I only have 2 rooms with any carpet in them so I only vacuum once a week or if needed more. My 5yr old dd loves to dust & asks to all the time.

I dust once a week. I vacuum about 1-2 times a day. I would rather dust.To make it not so much a chore I put music on while I do it

I have to sweep everyday!  We don't have carpet in our house...which I hate.  I don't know why the landlords wouldn't even put it in the bedrooms.  We do have a rug in the living room so I vacuum it every couple days.  I do have a bad habit of not dusting though...maybe once a week IF that...Definitely need to do better at that because I probably shouldbe dusting every other day or so.

I just did this recently in order to get the house on the market. Now I am trying to do good to keep it looking nice and neat.
