Spring Clean in 7 Days: Dining Room - Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of Spring Clean in 7 Days!

Today we will be cleaning the Dining Room. Gather all of your supplies (cleaners, boxes, and garbage bag), open your windows and turn on some music. Start from top to bottom in a room and remember, if you have a lot to declutter, get that done before beginning to clean.

Decluttering that could be done before beginning to clean should include:
  • Sort through china cabinet (I keep my linens that are relevant to the kitchen and dining room inside the bottom part of mine)
  • Sort through any shelves or cabinets
And onto the cleaning!
  • Dust/wash any ceiling fans and lighting fixtures
  • Dust away cobwebs in the corners of your ceiling
  • Wash walls and trim
  • Wash/dust any wall decor
  • Remove and wash valances and curtains
  • Wash windows and dust off window sills
  • Take out any window screens and wash them
  • Wash any doors and doorknobs
  • Wash off switch plates
  • Dust off (or wash depending on the condition) any shelves and furniture
  • Dust off (or wash) any decor that was on the furniture you just cleaned (including everything inside your china cabinet)
  • Remove and wash all table linens
  • Wash down table and chairs (do not forget the legs and undersides)
  • Clean chair pads/cushions
  • Wash any heat registers and covers
  • Clean any area rugs
  • Sweep/wash any floors
Now, go put the items away that belong in other rooms, take the donation box out to your vehicle, and tie up the garbage bag and take it outside. You are doing an amazing job so far and I'm sure you're enjoying your clean living room and dining room!

Am I missing anything from this list? What would you add? Tomorrow is the Kitchen and Pantry Day! And don't forget the link up at the end of the 7 days!
