I’m a bit of a clean and order freak. I’ve compiled my ultimate fall cleaning and winter preparation wishlist. It’s a bit overboard but it’s full of safety items and things often overlooked. There’s also a few things that will help you save energy this winter if you live in a really cold area. Click to download the PDF for easy printing!

Love cleaning list! Thank you!
Love it, and it’s so pretty I might actually be motivated enough to do it 🙂

I just made a post and mentioned YOUR cleaning list…. looks like I know how I am spending my free time next week. – My husband appreciates you!
Kim Kosek says

I clicked, downloaded and printed your list. I’ve put it on the fridge and (warned) my husband (boy is HE excited!) All my clean freak tendencies are feeling freakishly excited to get started. THANKS for a great list.
Thank you! Very thorough, and great to have a list so that nothing is forgotten!
Karen C. says
I did the same thing. It’s actually a nice change of pace from dishwasher and endless laundry.
My husband actually asked me to print it off because he wants to tackle it. THANK YOU ASHLEY! It’s going to be nice to have a thoroughly clean house this fall!
Vanilla Bean Crafts says
Seriously Ashley?!! I JUST cleaned house in the spring!!
Karen C. says
Okay. There are about 60 items. . I believe 59 to be exact. 2 a day will get the list done in a month!! Check. Check. Check.:0)
It’s a little scary when you see that some of my spices are not marked with an expiration date. Major note to self: make sure newly puchased items have them. Check!

THANK YOU! This is extremely helpful!
I just printed it!
Gotta get busy!

Blessings and joy to you as you make your home!

Thanks so much for this. I’m participating in a 31 Days Challenge and I chose “31 Days to a Cleaner Home”. This will definitely help me if I run out of places to clean (which, to be honest, isn’t likely but I’ll probably forget some stuff).
I love, love this checklist! Even though its still a huge project, it just seems more doable with a list.
Thank you for this very thorough checklist! Do you have a similar one for spring cleaning?
The Banana Fairy says
I would also love to see a spring one now that there is a glimmer of hope in my physical rehabilitation to follow through with one of these fantastically detailed and gorgeously laid out lists!
Just found you on Pinterest… you’re amzing! Are you planning to write a spring “Mother of all?” Would love to have one to follow for each season! Thanks!!
Thanks for the VERY detailed list. I’m just starting this today. I may skip a few steps, like draining the hot water tank to remove sediment, haha. After all my goal is to be done before the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. 🙂
