Ways For Deep Cleaning Your Home In Just 7 Days

    These are easy was for Deep Cleaning Your Home in Just 7 Days!! It is crazy how easy this can be to do and also to maintain.If you are like me every once in a while you need to do something to freshen your home up more than just your normal cleaning around the house! If you break it up over the course of a week you can be done deep cleaning your home in just 7 days!! (I have included links to some great products that I have bought on my own to make my life easier. You can buy them too through my online sales links.) Sounds easy right?  While doing each of these days be sure to take care of any clutter that you may find.

    Ways for Deep Cleaning Your Home in Just 7 Days:

    • Day 1– Drapes and blinds- The easiest way to deep clean drapes and blinds is by using the attachments on your vacuum cleaner. However, if they are extra dirty, you will need to take some additional steps to get them clean. You can take the drapes down and wash them. Blinds can be cleaned with a damp cloth. 
    • Day 2– Fans and light fixtures- While you probably use a feather duster to clean these items, you are going to have to do a bit more for the deep cleaning process. If your fans and/or light fixtures are up high, you may need a ladder to get up there and wipe with a damp cloth. Take the light fixture off and wash it with soap and water.
    • Day 3– Bedrooms- Many people are shocked when they see all the dust bunnies that collect on the back of dressers. Your vacuum attachments can get these areas cleaned easily. Using glass cleaner, clean your mirrors then wipe down the headboards and bedposts.  Be sure to check up in the corners of your rooms to look for cobwebs as well as any air vents.
    • Day 4- Bathrooms- Bathrooms need some extra cleaning since they can get nasty after a while. If you have a shower caddy in your bathtub, take it out and clean it good. Use a bathroom cleaner and old toothbrush to clean the showerhead. Remove everything from the sink area and countertops and clean with a bathroom cleaner. Pour some bleach in the toilet and let it set for 15 minutes before cleaning.  Plus be sure to take this time to rotate any hba stock and clean out your make up supply if needed.  I also make a list of what we are low on  to watch for deals.
    • Day 5- Kitchen- The kitchen is another room in the home that gets dirty and fast. Start with the fridge, take everything out of it, remove the shelves and drawers and clean them. Then wash the interior of the fridge with cleaner, sponge and pail of warm water. Clean the exterior of the fridge, especially the handles. If you have a self-cleaning oven, this part will be easy. If you don’t have one, use a cleaner and follow the directions. Take the tray out of the microwave and wash with warm, soapy water and clean the inside of the microwave. Clean all the spots and spills in drawers and cabinets. Then, take everything off the counter and clean with a kitchen cleaner.
    • Day 6- Floors- Use a vacuum to clean under the kitchen furniture and in places that are hard to reach. Use hot water and cleaner to mop the floors. Wipe down the baseboards and use a sponge to clean the corners and edges of the floor.
    • Day 7- Rest- You are done your deep cleaning and deserve a day to rest and relax!  Or go shopping to decorate your newlys cleaned spaces!

    How often do you deep clean? Do you have any tips?

      I agree!! I work 2 jobs and have little to no time now there is no way I can do all that in 7 days.. Maybe 1-2 months…

    • says

      I agree. I could never get all that done in 7 days, but I could probably pick one to do each Saturday. Thanks for the reminder though of a few extra things that don’t typically get done!

    Hi Jenny! I love written “directions”! It’s always easier to get things done when they are already mapped out for you! Thanks for sharing it at our first #LivingwithStyle Linky Party! I hope that you will link up again next Wednesday! ~Dianne

    Blinds can acquire a stubborn dust-like residue, and I learned that getting a cloth dipped in vinegar and running it along the blinds is a fantastic remedy. You can usually get it in one swipe. Thanks for the tips! I usually overwhelm myself, but I don’t set a timeline over the course of several days. I’ll do that this time around :) I just have a spare room absolutely filled with junk I need to thin out. It’ll take time, but it’s better than spending the money on a professional to do it!

    What about bedrooms…..it would take me a week in itself to tackle all my kids bedrooms and my own!!!!!

  4. Jerrie says

    I do most of the things you mentioned weekly! I dust my fans every week, dust my furniture twice a were. Vacuum daily. Clean fridge weekly. Clean bathrooms daily! I like clean. Now where I fail is closets, drawers and woodwork.

    You didn’t mention windows, I do those twice a year, before I decorate for Christmas and in the spring, after the rain stops!

    I really appreciated the time when I was stay-at-home-mom! It was a wonderful when I had time for my children and to clean up the house regularly. Now I’m too busy but I always try to take care of my kids. Unfortunately, sometimes I miss the deep cleaning part but I will follow your advise and I’ll clean my house as you. Thank you very much! Happy cleaning to all!

    Love these tips and can add 2 of my own. My husband uses a fresh washcloth in the shower each day then hangs it up on the rod. I take this damp washcloth every morning and wipe something off before throwing it in the hamper. Dusty corners, baseboards, whatever.
    My next tip: whenever I find myself with some kind of cloth on its way to the hamper, I clean something on the way. Like when I change our sheets, I take the dirty pillow case and wipe off the night stands or the headboard before putting the sheets and pillowcases in the wash. When I pick up my sons socks or t-shirts from the floor, I sweep it under his bed or under his nightstand to get some of the dust bunnies, then it goes right in the hamper. Going down the hallway with a laundry basket in my hands, I’ll kick a dirty tee shirt along the baseboards as I go, to pick up dust. You get the idea.

    Actually, I do this all about once a month! I deep clean the kitchen once a month, excluding the freezer which I do about every three months. And I do vacuuming
    And dusting at least once a month sometimes often or depending on how dusty everything gets. My bathroom definitely gets done at least once a month more often twice a month I can’t stand a dirty bathroom!

  8. Ginger says

    Use handy wipes to clean front of kitchen cabinets, appliances, light switches, etc. They work great.
    Appreciate any and all suggestions. Yours are great

  9. says

    Thank you for sharing your great cleaning tips with us at Merry Monday. You make it sound fairly easy to deep clean within a week. I should try it. I struggle with such organization.

  10. says

    Great ideas and I love the title! You wouldn’t have to do it in 7 days but the tips are a great way to get started and motivated. Do you have any tips for cleaning wood tables. I’ve been staring at my kitchen table for a few days thinking I really need to clean it from top to bottom (including the chairs. It’s black and I have trouble making it look really nice. I’d love your ideas. Visiting from #turnituptuesdays

    What a great idea to break it up into small areas to tackle each day! I’ve been thinking I need to do some spring cleaning pretty soon. These are some great reminders! Thanks for joining us for the Wednesday Showcase.

  12. says

    Great tips, although I probably can’t get to all that in six days! I do like the idea of having a schedule which I loosely have of what I clean on certain days, like bathrooms or dusting. I will have to try the bleach in the toilets though. Visiting from Friday Favorites party.

  13. says

    This post is so great that it is being featured this coming week on From The Archives Friday link party! I love your idea of breaking up the sections of your home for cleaning rather than trying to do it all at once. I do better when I compartmentalize things rather than going full force into anything so I really appreciate this advice. Plus, spring is on it’s way so I need to get motivated to get my house in order and this post is going to help me do that. Thanks!

  14. says

    This is a really nice systematic approach to a spring clean. It’s a great way to approach it. I do prefer to do it all in one go as it gets it out of the way, but it is a bit of an all day job.

    Or take the kids to the park so they don’t mess up your newly cleaned house, right? :) This is so great for getting Spring cleaning into full swing! Thanks for sharing on From the Farm..it’s another favorite that we will feature this week. Hope to see you again soon!

  16. says

    LOVE Day 7!! LOL But seriously, everything you listed was great. I used to have a family tradition when I was growing up to spring clean on a particular couple of days and then we would throw a party! Motivation kept that going… Now That tradition is dead, I’m going to take your little list here and think of a Spring cleaning After party tradition to start again! 😀

    One of the comments was to use vinegar and water to clean blinds. That really works great. On another pinterest post (might be repeated here…didn’t get to every tip). But after you mix equal parts white vinegar and water, put a tube sock on your hand and dip it in the solution. Then you can run your fingers over the top and bottom of the blind slat and the cleaning goes much quicker. I just cleaned my bathroom blinds this way last night (they seem to get dirty and dusty faster) and they cleaned up beautifully!

    The one thing I don’t see mentioned is anything about tables or couches, I spot clean my couch once a week and take all the cushions off and clean the leather surface. I have two dogs so I could do it everyday lol. The other deep clean I do is the kitchen bar stools and legs and everything, i also do the same thing with my dining room chairs, table and the bases and extra leafs. This is a monthly thing. Thanks for all these great tips!

    Jenny, what a great way to break it up! I need to do this. Thank you so much for linking up and sharing at Dishing It & Digging It. We enjoy seeing your creativity each week! :)

  20. says

    Okay, I have never even thought of cleaning the back of our dressers! I’m a little afraid to see what’s behind them. Lol. Thanks for sharing your cleaning list with us at Merry Monday this week!
