Kitchen/Dining Room

  • Empty, wipe down and reorganise draws & cupboards
  • Check dates and throw away any expired tinned goods
  • Clean hob – with a gas hob, remove covers and leave to soak, use a antibacterial kitchen cleaning spray on the surfaces and then wipe down with warm water.
  • Wipe surfaces – using antibacterial spray.
  • Deep clean oven
  • Clean microwave – antibac spray or for a fresh smell, microwave a sliced lemon and a bowl of water for 30 seconds & wipe clean.
  • Hoover/mop floor
  • Empty and clean fridge shelves
  • Scrape away any excess ice in the freezer
  • Wipe down windows
  • Empty & clean kitchen bin – use antibac spray or warm soapy water and air freshener.

Bedroom

  • Empty, clean & reorganise wardrobe – I always find it easier to empty it completely and start organising things back in from scratch.
  • Empty & wipe down the inside of  your chest of draws – then reorganise
  • Hoover floor – move furniture around to make sure you get everything
  • Consider a re-jig of furniture? If you have the space to move things about then maybe try out a new layout – it will make things feel fresh and new.
  • Dust windowsills
  • Dust lamps & lampshades
  • Wipe down windows & mirrors
  • Empty & clean bin – antibacterial spray & air freshener
  • Clear and dust/wipe down bedside tables & any other surfaces
  • Flip mattress
  • Replace bedding
