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 just vacuumed and dusted yesterday! I have to do it twice a week. I like vacuuming more, easier for me. I have no clue how to make it go by faster. I should look up some tips.

We have a big old house so I try to dust/sweep the living areas once a week, but the attic and cellar,Oy! Can't promise you anything on this one, it's more than a one day job.

I vacuum and dust daily.  Just quick cleaning.  We had a bunch of people over the first weekend in April so I had done a lot of deep cleaning then.  I think keeping up with it makes it a lot easier and takes less time when you do a deep clean since there isn't months of buildup that you have to scrub off.

 I dust and vacuum at least 3 times per week, the challenge for me is moving the furniture and doing a good job, I'll get that done today!

I vacuum at least 1-2x a week, but find my self dusting everyday. Not always the same things or in the same rooms, but I try to hit everything from window blinds to baseboards each week.

I also deep cleaned my vacuum a few weeks ago washed filers than can be washed, and changed filters that couldn't. I uses a toothbrush and a damp rag to clean the inside where dirt/dust can sit. It's so clean now that the suction is at least 5x better.
