Massive Amounts of Soapy Water

January seems like a good time to wash the house. I guess most people call it “spring cleaning” but why wait till spring. I felt like cleaning from top to bottom was a good way to start the new year, so for the past week and a half I’ve been washing the house. I mean… like… the whole house.

Vacuuming under the furniture

Washing windows and blinds

Scrubbing baseboards and door frames

Kitchen cabinets


Ceiling fans

And a whole bunch of other stuff that generally gets ignored.

I’ll be honest with you – since I talk about organization all the time – the last time I did most of these tasks was when I was pregnant with Mikayla. I knew it’d be a while before I would be able to do major cleaning again. Well, she turns 4 in April so, yeah, it was a while.

It feels good knowing that literally every surface of my house is clean. It also feels good to know I won’t have to do it again for “a while”. However long that may be.

Question: When was the last time you cleaned your baseboards? Do you have a spring cleaning routine each year?
