The Ultimate Spring-Cleaning Checklist


Spring is right around the corner, which means so is your home’s annual deep clean. Not only is spring cleaning a great way to reset (that’s what the season is all about!), but the yearly chore also gets rid of any accumulated dust and dander before allergy season reaches full swing. Cleaning your home from top to bottom may never become effortless, but you can make the project more manageable with our comprehensive checklist from Martha’s Homekeeping Handbook, complete with advice from cleaning experts.

Whether you prefer to proceed from the attic to the basement or start outdoors and wind your way inside, create a realistic schedule and focus on one task at a time. You’ll need several days for more involved projects, such as mopping floors and organizing closets, but in due time, you’ll check everything off your list—and have a sparkling clean home by the end of it.

  • Log into or create your Miro account (it’s free!)

  • When you find Waldo, take one of the circle icons and place it on Waldo

Patches pet of the week

Everyone say “hi” to Patches!

Patches is the definition of the “queen of cool” cat style. She is the most laid-back and loves to chill on the couch, or under covers on the bed. Her human is pretty sure she was a dog in a past life!

She fetches, she greets her humans when they get home, and she never misses a meal. The girl loves to eat, and perhaps it shows!

💌 We’re huge pet lovers at The Assist and want to feature a pet each week — fill out this form for your fur baby to be featured!
