Whew! So, its finally March…which means Spring is just over a week away! I mean, we still have like 16 feet of snow outside and its only 20ish degrees, but…I’ve got faith, man! It has to warm up eventually, right?

Fingers crossed!

I am definitely more of an Autumn person – jeans & hoodies & bonfires, yes please! – but Spring is alright. My second favorite part about it – after finally being able to open the windows with warm air coming inside! – is spring cleaning! I guess *favorite* might be a little bit of a stretch, but I do love the feeling of a deep cleaned house after being cooped up and closed up all winter long.

So, starting March 18th, I will be doing a 21 Day Spring Cleaning Challenge! I’ve divided up a list into one little thing each day for three weeks. I’ve also created a printable for y’all to follow along with me, or start whenever you feel like!

It took me awhile, but I’ve gotten to a point where I actually do enjoy cleaning. One thing I’ve found recently that I love are these swedish dishcloths! I love anything reusable, and to cut down on our waste. I’ve worked these into our budget to be able to purchase periodically, and I am obsessed. They dry pretty quickly, and I’m able to just pop them in the dishwasher once they are dirty to clean/sanitize them. They don’t get that stinky dishrag smell either, which I absolutely ABHOR, so that makes me really happy! So far I just use them specifically for cleaning, and maybe wiping up things around the kitchen. Eventually I plan to hopefully replace our paper towels with them. Another thing I love having around the house (mainly for the kitchen/bathroom) are these microfiber cloths. They are a bit cheaper, so I have quite a bit of them around already. I actually keep this laundry hamper in our front closet to just toss the rags/washcloths in every day, to wash at the end of the week. Its super handy and makes me feel a lot better than throwing gross rags into our clothes baskets.

I hope you will join me in this challenge! And if you have any helpful cleaning tips to share, please drop a comment below!

xoxo, Cait

  1. I really need to get myself moving and do my own challenge: challenging myself to do some spring cleaning! It is so difficult for me to get everything in in the day.

  3. I’m with you 100% on being a fall person! But, spring is a great time to shake off the dust and challenge yourself with a little cleaning. This is such an optimistic way to look at it, and your checklist is so pretty and colorful, it almost makes me excited to clean.
