june house cleaning checklist

June 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.  

The best plan is to break down annual and seasonal tasks by month and tackle them daily or weekly. 

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 June house cleaning checklist that works best for me.

1.  Is that Fluffy?

Clean stuffed animals to keep them sanitary as well as cuddly. Some can be laundered. Some you have to wipe down. Getting all the soft stuff in your home clean is a great way to start the June house cleaning checklist. 

2.  Caution! Hazardous zone:

While the kids are home from school, entice or enlist them to clean their rooms, top to bottom. Be patient. This could take a while. (But then, the summer is young.)

3.  The land down under:

Clean and reorganize the bathroom. Buy under sink drawer units or stackable baskets to make the best use of the freshly cleaned space.

4.  Take two aspirin and...

Take two aspirin and check their expiration dates. While you're at it, clean out the entire medicine cabinet to get rid of everything inside that's past its prime.

5.  Give shower curtains a bath:

Put vinyl or plastic shower curtains in your washing machine and a few bath towels. Wash in cold water on the gentle cycle. Remove the curtains before the spin cycle and hang them to dry.

6.  White out grout:

Clean and repair, or replace, bathroom caulking.

7.  Bare it all:

Bare the floors and clean area the rugs according to the manufacturer's directions. Be sure to place non-slip rug pads underneath to keep summer-free kids - and everyone in your home - safe.

8.  Awww!

Go through family pictures that you've taken over the past year. Be ruthless. Toss the bad ones; send Grandma a bunch, and file the rest (by month and year) until you finally get around to compiling that album.

9.  Photo swap:

Refresh the photographs you have on display with some of the best you've just sorted through.

10.  The pink period: Your final June house cleaning checklist task.

Go through your children's artwork (when they're not around). Put the top creations in a unique memory book or box; frame the very best and display them in a hallway — circular file what's left.
