    We do a little more in-depth cleaning such as; using old toothbrushes to really get in small spots, wash curtains on gentle the iron before hanging again, clean out all cupboards and wipe out & replace liner, spot clean and gently clean the furniture such as sofas & chairs and put away all hoses. These may be listed above and I didn’t register it, but it’s a good feeling once all is done!

    WOW That’s one long list! I generally do the inside and my husband handles the outside and that’s how we get things done. We are behind this year because my husband had Surgery and is still recovering. I have a question for you. Do you know of a way to get blood out of carpeting? I have tried using the rug cleaner with the formula stuff, using club soda, and using Oxi-Clean. I’ve tried scrubbing with a brush & then using the rug cleaner again. It just spread the stains! I have no idea what to use! Ok back to your list. I can’t believe that you work and then work at home and aren’t too tired to do anything! WOW maybe they should put a big “S” on your shirt for SuperDad. Thanks for the list! I think we’ll get everything covered! Thanks again, Michele 🙂

    I have been putting off my fall cleaning, but a checklist can sure help, especially when you forget things. Love this!

    Very comprehensive list, I was already planning on doing the curtains and washing the windows. I did clean the carpets already, I’m going to try your wash the washer tip!

    Fall is here and it is time for the big clean. Looking at the list makes it look overwhelming. One step at a time is my motto. Thank you for sharing

    Great tips for fall cleaning. I tend do “spring clean” sections of the house based on the season. Fall cleaning would entail cleaning out summer clothes, getting ready for school and sports events

    Thanks for the tips! I definitely try to go through as much of these as I can each fall. I just cleaned out my medicine cupboard and makeup too. I see a few I need to get done soon!

    I used to love fall cleaning when I was more mobile then I am Now!! The stuff is just getting done much slower now. My ceiling Fans and ceiling fixtures all need to be dusted. I will work on them tomorrow..I love a nice clean smelling home…:0)

    I had to pin that list. I am running so far behind on my cleaning because I had surgery. Will be easier with a list.

    Very helpful tips, would really need to get started if I plan on getting done before the holidays, I usually do the windows in spring, and the garage and outbuildings, too cold here otherwise, but I do clean the oven and appliances before the holidays, thank you for such a long listening.

    You are seriously organized! I personally have a hard time keeping up with the daily basics! Great tip on cleaning the washer too.

    Thanks for the reminders, it never hurts to have a list, I forget about the pantry and junk drawers, coupons I do every 3-4 months. Hubby now goes thru the receipts and papers weekly, that gets rid of a lot of clutter. I clear the chairs and rugs out of the way, I dust mop, then he cleans the hardwood floors!!! In our house, we both pitch in, except for ladders, he does ladders, I fall off them. Literally!

    Rather than shampoo carpets, I use my steam cleaner. It kills the germs really well. It wouldn’t get out dirt, though, if that’s an issue.

    What a great list. At first I thought – there is no way that I could tackle all that, but then you last bit gave me hope. I think that I could knock out one or two a day. Slow and steady wins the race!

    Wow what a thorough list. I know I won’t get half of it done but it’s good to have a guide. Thanks!

    A few of those I do at least once per month! Admittedly, some don’t get done often enough. It’s a great list. I’m printing it as a reminder, thanks!
