11 Speedy Spring Cleaning Jobs That Make a Real Difference

Not everyone has the time for an exhaustive spring clean. But nobody wants their house to look a mess. Fortunately, there are some spring cleaning jobs that can have a big impact on your home and only take a matter of minutes…

1. Scrub kitchen cabinets

While you might wipe them down regularly, it’s a good idea to give your cabinets a deeper clean to keep dirt and grease from building up. Make sure you use the right cleaning product for the cabinet doors, but you don’t need to be too fussy for the interior. A soft cloth soaked in soapy water is perfectly fine to use or an anti-bacterial spray if you prefer.

2. Clean and organise the fridge

Thinking about cleaning your fridge is more painful than actually doing it. Quickly cleaning and throwing out anything that’s past its best is enough to keep the fridge looking and smelling good. Empty it out, wipe down the doors and shelves with disinfectant, replace everything and you’re done.

3. Freshen drains

To get rid of those unpleasant smells wafting from the drains, you can freshen them with a homemade solution. Simply pour 1 cup of baking soda and 2 cups of white vinegar or lemon juice down the sink and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Rinse it through with hot water to finish and your drains will be as fresh as a daisy!

4. Clean the cleaning cupboard

It’s a good idea to give your cleaning cupboard a clear-out every now and then. You are likely to discover cleaning products you didn’t know you had or get rid of ones that are out of date. And if you find you’re struggling for space, a cleaning caddy could make a huge difference to storage.

5. Wash the washing machine

Most people don’t think about their washing machine as a spring cleaning job. But it can start to smell – and have the same effect on your clothes – if it’s left ignored.

A quick and easy way to fix this is putting a dishwasher tablet into the empty machine and starting a warm wash. Then enjoy your fresher-smelling clothes.

6. Freshen up the bins

Not the nicest job – but there is a hassle-free way to freshen stinky bins. Simply pour a kettle of boiling water into the empty bin along with your cleaning solution. Leave the water to cool before pouring it out and wiping down the inside.

7. Steam your microwave

Squeeze the juice from half a lemon into a bowl of water, before putting the other half in the bowl. Put in the microwave on high for 3 minutes and then leave for 5 minutes. You will end up with fresh-smelling steam that will make dirt easy to wipe off.

8. Clean kids’ toys

Give your dishwasher something else to do and use it to clean any plastic toys. Wash any soft toys in the washing machine – just make sure you check the care label first.

9. Vacuum under sofa cushions

You never know what you might find if you take a few minutes to vacuum under your sofa cushions. A thorough clean might help you find all sorts of things you thought you’d lost – as well as freshening up your sofa.

10. Wipe down doors and frames

Cleaning down your doors and doorframes is an easy and quick spring cleaning job. Grubby doors can develop in busy homes with sticky hands and muddy paws, which can be rectified using a soapy cloth.

11. Get the carpets professionally cleaned

Carpets have a massive impact on how clean a home looks and smells. But they’re definitely not the easiest thing to add to your spring cleaning jobs list. Thankfully, it’s quick and easy to find a professional, reliable carpet cleaner through the National Carpet Cleaners Association (NCCA).

Simply fill in your location and the service you need to get results within a 10-mile radius. Then put your feet up and let a vetted, insured professional do all the hard work for you.
