Spring clean like a pro with 5 tips from HGTV’s Joanna Gaines

There’s something magical about springtime.

We’re not just talking about the feeling of warmer weather, we’re talking about that spark inside you that makes you want to clean and purge and organize and then reorganize. ✴️


Mother Nature was unavailable for comment, so we turned to our #MomCrush, #DesignInspo, #Superwoman Joanna Gaines of HGTV’s Fixer Upper for her best spring cleaning tips and tricks.

1. Schedule your cleaning day accordingly.

Joanna recommends a free weekend day to go all.out on the house. Maybe your in-laws can take the kids while you and your husband tackle cleaning together. We won’t go as far as calling it a date, but...it is spending time together, and that has to count for something!

Uninterrupted time together. . . FTW!

2. Set the tone.

Light a candle, pull out all the cleaning supplies you’ll need, throw on a killer playlist (we recommend this spring cleaning playlist on Spotify) and like Rihanna says, workworkworkworkworkwork.

3. Purge what no longer serves a purpose.

Anything that is broken, toss. Items you no longer use, toss. Things around the house you just don’t love, toss. Pre-baby pants that are just so not happening again? SEE YA LATER. Fill five garbage bags with donations. Start your spring cleaning day on a feel-good foot.

4. Deep clean the nooks and crannies.

Sure, we clean our house. (We promise we do.) But let’s be honest—we’re not always getting behind the fridge or reorganizing the pantry. Your spring clean is perfect for tackling those big projects. Go big or go home.

Check out Joanna’s super helpful checklist to keep you motivated and on task:

5. Sit back and enjoy.
