How to Spring Clean Your House Exterior

If you’re following the Spring Cleaning Challenge, this is the final day.

Today,  we are going to clean the exterior of our homes. We’re not going to do it all – instead, we’re really going to focus on the most obvious aspects. You will need dry weather to do this, so pick a day when it’s not raining.

What do I need?

Gather your supplies. Today, you’ll need:

  • Broom
  • Dustpan and brush
  • A few cloths
  • Bin bag
  • Gardening tools

Exterior Deep Clean: Step by Step

  1. Set a timer for 20 minutes. Weed the front garden for 20 minutes. Cut back any shrubs that need cutting back.
  2. Sweep the front path or driveway.
  3. Using hot, soapy water, clean your windowsills. If you don’t have your windows cleaned regularly, clean the windows too.
  4. Set your timer for 20 minutes and tackle the back garden.
  5. Sweep paths.
  6. Mow the lawn if it’s growing – usually mid-April in the UK.
  7. Tidy the edges of the lawn, especially around paths.
  8. Shape the shrubs if they are out of shape. Just some gentle pruning to tidy things up.
