Hey there, Crochet Spotters! How’s the weather by you? I know there are lots of us living in the Northern part of North America, and I understand that winter’s in full swing up there. But I’m here to tell you that warmer weather is on the way! By the time that rolls around, you want to be ready to rush out and enjoy it, right? You don’t want to be stuck in the house doing your spring cleaning. According to the calendar, we’re just a few weeks away from Passover and Easter, the harbingers of the new season, so it’s time to plan and get moving! Why not incorporate crochet into your spring cleaning?

Step One: Plan It Out. You may already have a spring cleaning list you use. If so, pull it out and update it. If not, take a walk through your house and see what needs refreshing for the new season. Write everything down and then pare it down to manageable tasks. If you need a list to get your started, Martha has provided a pdf download here.

Step Two: Gather Your Supplies. Once you have your list in place, figure out which supplies you need to complete the tasks at hand. Tip Nut has a great house cleaning kit list to help you out. This is where the crochet comes in! Since you’re planning ahead, you can go ahead and make some of your cleaning supplies. Yay! Here is a list of some awesome cleaning patterns you can find here on Crochet Spot.

Easy Tunisian Square Scrubbie
Vortex Tawashi
Absolutely Fast Dishcloths

Step Three: Knock It Out. Once you’ve got everything in place, you can schedule the big day, crank the music, and whip the house into shape. It’s important not to get overwhelmed. Oprah has provided a Spring Cleaning Checklist that can help you get everything done in just 8 hours!

So what about you, my friends? Do have you ever incorporated crochet into your spring cleaning? Do you think you will use any of these patterns to get prepared? As always, please leave your thoughts, ideas and questions in the comment section below.

  2. I wish I could clean the whole house in 8 hours, but for me is just impossible. I am able to clean not more than three hours, because I get extremely exhausted. Nevertheless I will print this checklist, because I like to plan the time for cleaning. Greetings
