Fall Cleaning Checklist | Planner Pages

September 25, 2016Holly Sosa

This review was made possible by iConnect Influencer Management, Febreze, and Swiffer was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.

I feel like fall cleaning doesn’t get the attention it deserves. Spring takes all the glory for herself and leaves fall behind in her dust. For me, I much prefer fall cleaning to spring cleaning. I like to purge and deep clean before the weather drives us all indoors for the winter so we can enjoy a clutter-free holiday season and start with a fresh slate before decorating for fall. Move over spring cleaning, fall is here to announce her arrival.

Never one to tackle a project without a handy list, I took to my trusty planner to create a helpful rundown of everything I want to accomplish before the end of October. From purging closets to refreshing with Febreze, this planner page keeps my thoughts organized so I can execute everything without overwhelming myself.

Starting with some basics sets a foundation for me and gets my home feeling more fresh before the fall weather drives us all inside. Cleaning all the places that go neglected all year like door knobs, baseboards, and even the washer and dryer. I also like to use my Swiffer WetJet Mop for wood floors and give my kitchen floors a nice bath, too. The stronger pad attachment keeps my cleaning pad in place as I clean and the new solution formula helps me to get those stubborn spot up with ease.

Once I complete my basics, I start getting a littler deeper into my home. Emptying and purging cupboards, closets, bookshelves, and anywhere else that needs to be decluttered.


Lastly, I complete the traditional fall tasks like flipping the mattresses, washing curtains, cleaning gutters, and more. But my grand finale is always and will always be a lovely little spritzing of Febreze. For fall, the Febreze in Big Sur scent is the perfect mix of citrus and spice that makes me feel like I’m relaxing on a hammock in between two sandalwood trees, cozied up with a cable knit blanket, and reading a book. While this is how I like to wrap up my fall cleaning, let’s be honest here, I do this at least every other day, ha!


My home always feels more refreshed, clean, and welcoming after I go through my fall cleaning checklist and then do my little Febreze dance around the house. Carpets and upholstery are freshened, my stinky boy’s closet is de-mustified, and my dog’s bed is stank-free. Plus my cabinets are de-cluttered and reorganized to help us get through the cold seasons with minimum frustrations.

    I am definitely Team Fall! I love the changing leaves, getting to wear my favorite boots again, all the pumpkin treats and apple cider, festivals, driving through the Great Smoky Mountains, carving pumpkins, Halloween, dressing up for Halloween (I’m a kid at heart), watching scary movies in the dark… the list goes on. 🙂
