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?

Well, aside from vacuuming the couches, vacuuming is a no go. I don't even have a rug...lol.

I need to sweep, mop, and dust though.

I'm always vacuuming but don't dust as much as I should. Looking around I'm due for both anyway.

About a week ago.  I definitely prefer vacuuming.  Keep up on it and the crud doesn't become overwhelming.

I hate dusting but it really needs to be done. I just vacuumed the last 2 days (upstairs one day and downstairs the next) so I have a few days until it needs to be done again. I tend to vacuum about twice per week, unless there are messes between. I try to dust weekly, but sometimes I skip a week........like I did last week. My parents are coming in for a visit so I better get the dusting done today along with cleaning the kitchen, mopping, and cleaning the guest room.

I vacuum multiple times a week sometimes up to twice a day depending on if it needs done. I try to dust often but dont always get it done. I really dont like dusting for some reason.

Quoting notabosley:You are not an oddball at all! I totally agree with you! But if you do consider yourself an oddball, you are not alone.

When's the last time you dusted and vacuumed with gusto? Yesterday, I like to dust and vacuum, it's relaxing to me.
Which task do you like better?? Both equally.
What are your tips for making dusting and vacuuming quicker and easier? Start at the ceiling and move down. Stay organized, clutter makes things harder. Honestly I know I am an oddball, I just really enjoy dusting and vacuuming.
