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 want to get a duster to dust even up by the ceilings where we can get cobwebs. This house gets so dusty it's terrible. I don't mind dusting and I actually enjoy vacuuming. I do want a new vacuum though!

I try to dust often, although I vacuum almost daily.

I need to get better at vacuuming and the floors in general because my baby is about to start crawling. Won't be doing much cleaning in the next few days though since I have sick kiddos that are being clingy. :/

 I do it, but not very well.

I hate to dust.

LOVE to vacuum...but hate picking up the clutter to do it.  :(

I almost never dust.  It's one of the chores that I hate the most.
