Kitchen Spring Cleaning Tips and a Checklist

Kitchen Spring Cleaning Tips and a Checklist! Tips and tricks for cleaning your kitchen, including a detailed printable checklist!

Well my windows and patio doors are now wide open, welcoming in the arrival of spring!  I can’t even begin to tell you how relieved I am that this time has finally come…it felt like our winter would never ever ever ever end.  Like ever.  But it has, and overnight the trees and grass have turned green, my garden is planted and my flower pots are filled.  Love love it.

And a funny thing also happens to me this time of year with all the fresh air in the house…I want to clean.  I want to dust away winter and all it’s dreariness and make my home feel fresh and clean.  Especially in my kitchen.  There’s just something about spring that makes me want to clean and organize my kitchen.  Spring is a super time to freshen things up.

The Kitchen is the heart of the home

Because my kitchen is the centre of activity in our home, as it is for yours I’m sure, I like to give it a deep clean in the spring.  This year I’ve really focussed a lot of my efforts on making my kitchen beautiful, so spring cleaning actually felt kind of nice!

Clean one section at a time!

When it’s time for a good spring clean in my kitchen, I like to break down my cleaning schedule by area.  So I will start and finish deep cleaning one section of my kitchen before I start another.  For example I like to start by doing a deep clean in my eating nook, since this area tends to get overlooked on a daily basis.  I get in there and wash my curtains, wipe down walls, the table, chairs, and blinds.  Once that’s done I’ll move into the main kitchen area.

Cleaning the Main Kitchen Area

Next, I turn my attention to the main area of my kitchen and organize and wipe down all of the appliances, cupboards, counters and the back splash.  And if you’re really feeling motivated you can even tackle the pantry.  Here is my post on my Real Life Pantry Organizing Tips!

The Key is to not get overwhelmed!

The key to spring cleaning is to not get overwhelmed by it.  Tackle one thing at a time, even one task a day if that works better for you!  And if you follow a checklist the tasks are even easier to complete.  So to help make your life a little easier, I have put together a spring cleaning checklist for your kitchen.  I think I’ve got everything covered!

    Wow! JoAnna your kitchen is sparkling! I love the white with the teal accents. Your appliances really do shine. They look like showstopper items in the area and really add to the decor! Love it!

    I have part of our kitchen done, but isn’t it hard to keep up? My husband did the windows a couple weeks ago and they’re already looking horrible from the rain and dust- oh well! Love the pops of color in your kitchen- so fun!
