Spring cleaning is a popular household activity to reorganize and tidy up the house after a long winter. But fall is also a great time to do a big cleaning overhaul, especially if you’ve had a busy summer with little time to keep up with chores. This is the time of year when we start spending more time at home, so it’s a great opportunity to start feeling more comfortable in the space you’re in.
Here’s a fall cleaning checklist for your home this season and natural cleaning products to make it a healthy environment for everyone in your family.
Kitchen Cleaning for Fall
One of the first things to do when you’re cleaning the kitchen this fall is to thoroughly clean the countertops. Olive Leaf Surface Cleaner is an all-natural approach to washing away germs and has natural antimicrobial properties derived from plant sources. Also, make a point to scrub your kitchen sink and sweep and mop the kitchen floor for crumbs and spills.
Bathroom Cleaning for Fall
A good place to start with bathroom cleaning for fall is also with the countertops, so bring your Olive Leaf Surface Cleaner into this room of the house now. Then, wipe out the wink, wipe down the bathtub and shower falls, and clean the toilet. Instead of harsh toilet cleaning products filled with chemicals, try mixing a half cup of baking soda with a quarter cup of vinegar and 10 drops of tea tree oil to clean your toilet. Finish things off by putting out new bath towels and hand towels.
Bedroom Cleaning for Fall
Fall is a good time to get those dust bunnies out from under your bed, so break out the broom, vacuum, or mop to get the job done right. If you have a ceiling fan, use a duster with a long handle to get the dust off of here before cleaning the floors. Rotate your mattress if it’s been awhile and change the sheets. To clean bedroom mirrors, all you need is a mixture of a quarter cup vinegar, one teaspoon of natural liquid soap, and two cups of water.
Living Room Cleaning
Living rooms tend to get cluttered during the busy summer months, so focus your first fall efforts on reducing clutter and either getting rid of or organizing things that don’t need to be out in the open. Then vacuum the floors and wipe down the electronics in your living room. Spray Olive Leaf Surface Cleaner onto a microfiber cloth and wipe germs off of your TV screen, remote controls, and speaker equipment to get everything clean before your next cozy movie night at home.
Outdoor Cleaning for Fall
With the changing seasons, there are also plenty of cleaning tasks that can be done outside of the home. Fall is an ideal time to clean your patio furniture and then store it away for the winter. You can also clean the gutters to get any debris out before the leaves start to come down and wash the exterior and interior of your windows (with that same mixture recommended above for mirrors) so you can see the beautiful colors while staying comfortable and warm inside.
