february house cleaning checklist

Some tasks only need to be done once or twice a year. The problem is that we forget to do them once or twice a year.

Or else, we tend to save it all for spring cleaning, which makes spring cleaning such a daunting chore that it doesn’t occur, either

I’ve found the best plan is to break down annual and seasonal tasks by month and tackle them on a daily or weekly basis. 

Nothing gets too backed up, and things eventually get done. I’ve also found that concentrating on one room or area each month is more rewarding because you can see the results.

Here’s the schedule that works best for me that you can try yourself this month: February house cleaning checklist.

1.  Embrace the nesting instinct:

Embrace the nesting instinct: Clean all bed linens: including comforters, duvets, bed skirts, pillows, etc. Launder what you can; dry-clean the rest.

2.  The spin cycle:

Don't forget the bed linen toppers: Fluff up down pillows with a short spin in the dryer (no heat, please).

3.  Linens and things:

This is an especially good time to clean out your linen closet. Rotate rarely-used linens and towels to the front lines. Launder everything.

4.  On the flip side:

On the flip side, turn the mattresses for even wear. And vacuum each side for a couple of minutes while you're there. 

5.  Shelf  life:

Clean bookshelves. Take everything down from bookshelves and dust. Now, consider very carefully what you return to the shelves.

Does it really deserve to be there? Or would it be happier in a second-hand bookstore? 

6.  By the book:

Vacuum each book before you reshelve it, using the vacuum cleaner’s soft brush attachment.

7.  The clean air act:

The clean air act: replace the filter in your heating unit or furnace. It's essential to maintaining fresh clean air inside your home.

8.  Up against the wall:

Check walls for nail holes, blemishes, and scuffs, and fix as needed. (Read How to Fix a Wall Hole here.)

9.  Final February house cleaning checklist chore: Heavy thoughts

Get your beefy significant other to help you move all the large appliances away from the walls so you can vacuum behind and underneath them. Don't forget to change the water filter for the fridge while you're back there. 

Fabulous February is now all yours to enjoy!
