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 vacuum regularly but its almost impossible to keep up with the dust.  I'll get it done again this weekend.

I already vacuum everyday because I have 4 cats! I do need to dust more, I only do that twice a week.

I don't dust often because I could never dust to please my mother, so I just don't very much, but did it really good about a week ago.

Vacuuming doesn't bother me.

I honestly cannot remember the last time that my house was thoroughly vaccumed or dusted this is something that I really need to do though..

Its been awhile since I vacuumed and dusted with gusto lol. I vacuum every week and dusting isnt really on the list often cuz I dont have any furniture that requires dusting except one piece. I prefer to vacuum over susting. Tips I think are I love using the vacuuming powders esp carpet fresh. Wood scent pledge reminds me of christmas time growing up. My mom always had it at christmas time.

We vaccuum probably once a week, unless we get uber busy.  I hate dusting and actually pay my kids to do it.
