Latest Update: Sold Out at Meadow View

Completing a thorough, deep clean of your home can feel like a looming and impossible task on your to-do list but breaking it down can really help to make it feel much more manageable.

To guide you through the process and to make sure you don’t miss a spec of dirt, we’ve compiled a useful checklist which we’ve broken down room-by-room – meaning that your house will be spick and span in no time at all.

✅ Declutter (including clearing out THAT drawer)
✅ Clean the worktop, cabinets and sink
Organise your fridge and cupboards
The dreaded deep clean of the oven
Clean all appliances and rubbish bins
Mop and clean the floor

By breaking down this lengthy list and tackling it bit by bit, it takes away the burden of housework and makes it much more manageable. Don’t feel like you have to tackle all of this in one day, spread it over a weekend to lessen the pressure and make it feel that bit more enjoyable. Listening to music while you clean is a great way to get into the groove and inject a bit of fun into your routine.
