I created monthly organization printables on The Typical Mom to break down house cleaning and purging into a monthly process. This Summer house cleaning list is for the months of June – August. (originally published 6/17, affiliate links present)

Free Summer House Cleaning Checklist

I find that breaking the house down into rooms and focusing on one or just a few to make it more bearable. You can also download my entire monthly cleaning schedule here.

Summer Cleaning Checklist

We are always so busy during this time of year. Our kids are out of school and I don’t want to be cleaning the whole time. BUT it is a great time to do some purging and have them help!

You can start with cleaning your refrigerator! Have you done that lately, be honest. It really should be done every few months, every other is better. The easiest hack is to line shelves with Press ‘n Seal wrap. Bingo!

Then move on to organizing your garage.

Just split it up into a few days and make those days “at home days”.

The kids can help you with some of them, especially helping with purging their rooms because you know they have toys they aren’t interested in anymore and are okay with getting rid of them.

If you have little ones I would recommend creating a toy rotation at this time, it is great!

Really useful checklist for summer cleaning! Breaking down tasks room by room is a great strategy, especially when the kids are home and you want to balance cleaning with family time. I've found that involving the kids in decluttering their own spaces not only helps with the workload but also teaches them valuable skills. Your idea of lining fridge shelves with Press ‘n Seal wrap is a clever hack I'm definitely trying. Thanks for sharing this and keeping it real for busy families!

Great information! Cleaning is a very important thing in any season. When it is about summer season, people have a lot of things to do. Making a good checklist can help as it helps you to not only perform cleaning but also take into consideration those corners of the house which actually needs cleaning. Keep sharing this more and more! Home cleaners Midlothian

Having a checklist is a great tool to keep me on track when I'm cleaning. Otherwise I'll get started on one thing and notice something else that needs to be done and switch over before the first one is done! lol. I also like how you noted doing the toy rotation. I've been thinking about doing this for a while, but don't have storage to store the ones that aren't being used! I'm gonna have to find some way to get this done because my daughters room is always cluttered with toys, and that's not a good way to raise her up. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you for the check list provided for spring cleaning! I had ADD and this is a huge help for me to stay on track. I often find myself beginning in one room then going into another to get something I need and finding something that needs to be cleaned. It breaks my routine. So again I Thank You.
