That is a very extensive list and will be helpful to have on hand and check off as complete! Change out filters is listed two time (17 and 43) are these different or just a duplicate?
Great call out! I corrected it! Good luck on your Spring cleaning! 🙂
This is a wonderful list. Thank you for sharing yours. I always feel like I’m forgetting something nowadays when it comes to cleaning. It helps to have this available and take things slow just like you said. I might try doing 1-2 of these things a day outside of work. I’m going to print and hang this up on my family’s bulletin board. I know they will appreciate it! Thanks again!
Yay! That makes me so happy this had helped you! Just knock out one project at a time! You got this!
