Break cleaning down into 10-minute chunks.

Sometimes, spring cleaning is a marathon—but it doesn’t have to be. Here are four things you can spring clean in the next 10 minutes.

Dust: Brush a dusting wand over all open surfaces. A few minutes to spare? Break out the furniture polish for a quick shine.

  • Clean doors and switch plates: Using a damp microfiber cloth, remove fingerprints, smudges, and germs from light switch plates and doorknobs.
  • Dust ceiling fans: Place a pillowcase over the fan blade, then pull it toward you to collect the dust. After dusting, use a cloth dipped in warm, soapy water to clean off each blade. Then dry.
  • Baseboards: Use a microfiber mop to swiftly clear dust and debris from baseboards.

Adapt to your cleaning personality.

Some people are stress cleaners, others are chore procrastinators. Identifying your cleaning personality is the first step to coming up with a plan or routine that works for (rather than against) you. For example, if you’re an angry cleaner, go ahead and let that emotion motivate you to tackle tough cleaning tasks, like scrubbing grout. Find your cleaning personality here.
