Tip 1. Have a Room by Room Checklist

There are some crazy organized spring cleaning checklists out there on the interwebz. I put together some great ones on a Pinterest board for you. These are some of my favorites! I'm a big lover of checklists, I even have checklists for my checklists.

Tip 2. Arm Yourself with Your Best Cleaning Tools

From garbage bags to blind dusters, Becky over at Clean Mama has a rock star list of spring cleaning tools. Gather all your tools together before you start because an ounce of preparation is worth a pound of chocolate? I don't remember the exact phrase, but that works for now.

Tip 3. Pick The Right Cleaning Power

Now that you've armed yourself with your tools of choice it's time to figure out how to get the most mileage out of your elbow grease by picking the right cleaner for the job.

Did you know you can clean your bathtub with grapefruit and salt? You can even make your own wood polish. These and more DIY cleaning recipes can be found at Apartment Therapy's kick butt list of natural and DIY cleaners.

Tip 4. Work in 20/10 Time Frames

Work for 20 minutes and break for 10. I swear by this when taking on lovely tasks like cleaning out the fridge and that mountain of plasticware that took on a life of its own. Working for 20 minutes and breaking for 10 makes the job go by fast.

Tip 5. Relax in the shiny and smell great glory

Pick your favorite bar of Relaxing High Street Soap, soak away those sore muscles (in your nice clean bathroom), and have a drink!
