If you’re someone who hides clutter inside your drawers, we’re right there with you.

#1 Tip: Don’t Forget About Your Walls

When you’re spring-cleaning, areas like the bathroom, bedroom, or kitchen tend to take up most of your time. All of these spaces have one thing in common: walls! According to Danielle, spring-cleaning is the perfect time to give them a thorough cleaning. All you have to do is get out your favorite mop—hers is the O-Cedar EasyWring Spin Mop—wring it out well and, as she says, “go to town.” To clean her walls, she says powdered Tide is the secret ingredient.
