Here is your free February cleaning checklist to keep you organized and purge your house! Focusing on one area in your house each month is key to your overall success. Here is a deep cleaning house checklist for this month as well as a link to my free monthly cleaning schedule ebook too.
Welcome!! I created a January purge checklist a few weeks ago and it was so successful, and so many people asked me to create others for each month throughout the year, I decided to do a February cleaning checklist for this month! I hope you enjoy this free printable cleaning list, and you can find all the other organization printables for each month here too. 😉 (originally published 1/17)
- I focus on one room / area this month to really dig in deep to clean and purge those areas.
- Next month I will focus on another room and/or area so it’s broken down a bit and may include some things you might forget otherwise.
- They can all be found on my organization printables tab to print out
I focused on cleaning the kitchen in February, mainly the fridge/freezer and a bit in the laundry room as well.
A bit of purging is always useful as well, getting rid of the outdated, stained, and damaged things around the house.
- I’m sure I am not the only one who gets overwhelmed and doesn’t take the time to purge as necessary, so sometimes having a list of things to do and check off when done is helpful, as well as cathartic seeing all those checks meaning “done”!
Here are a few things on the February Cleaning checklist I will explain a bit further:
- Wrap shelves in Press N Seal – If you’ve never done this it is helpful! After you clean and dry your shelves use a sheet of Press N Seal to cover the top of your shelf, or if your shelf will allow you to wrap the whole thing all the way around and still slide it back in just wrap the whole thing starting on the top making sure it sticks flat without air pockets and around the sides.
- This will make it nice especially if there are spills. Just empty the shelf, pull the Press N Seal wrap off, replace, and you can eliminate or really prolong scrubbing the shelf again! Clean the shelves on the inside of your fridge door, and then put it on the bottom of those too so milk spillage etc… can be cleaned up easier. You can even make your own DIY cleaning wipes to clean.
- Cleaning your refrigerator – Take this time to do an extensive refrigerator clean out using our checklist to purge purge purge!
- Clean lint out of dryer hose – Yes you should always empty the lint trap on the inside of your dryer but the hose in the back of the dryer needs cleaning out too! Did you know you could start a fire if that hose got completely filled will dryer lint? It’s actually pretty easy to clean out.
- My husband used our leaf blower to clear the hose out and it was amazing how much came out! Just detach the dryer hose from the back of the dryer and blow the air in, the lint will fly out of the dryer vent on the side of your house. Then just clean it up from there and discard. Good to do at least once a year.
Here’s a video explaining the best way to clean your dryer vent:
- Combine like laundry detergent – Of course never mix chemicals, I’m talking about combining half boxes of dry Tide detergent etc..into 1 container.
- Cleaning the inside of your washing machine – Always good to do a few times a year. You can use this washing machine cleaner, pretty inexpensive and comes with several which will last you a while.
- Keep an extra laundry bin in the laundry room – When clothing that you know no longer fits your children comes out of the dryer throw it in this basket. When it is full, empty it into a garbage bag and drop it off at your local donation center (seen below, helps you purge)!
