Flowers blooming, temperatures rising, and days growing longer — the signs of spring are starting to emerge, and along with that is the need to get some things done. That includes all the tasks you couldn’t get to because of the weather or can only do now that you’ve flung open the windows and welcomed this new season. Yes, I’m talking about spring cleaning

Not sure where to start? Look no further than Apartment Therapy’s Spring Cleaning Cure, a free 10-day guided program that’ll help you get one step closer to a tidier home. It launches on April 15, 2024, and you can sign up right now using the email signup box below (or you can sign up here).

What is the Spring Cleaning Cure?

The Spring Cleaning Cure is a free program that’ll help you achieve a tidier home in just 10 days. Starting Monday, April 15, 2024, participants will receive a new cleaning assignment in their inbox every day. It’ll be guided by me, Stephanie Nguyen, Apartment Therapy’s Senior Editor, Cleaning & Organizing, and along the way we’ll be hosting “cure check-ins” where our team will be available to answer any Cure-related or general cleaning questions you may have!

You’ll be able to chat with Apartment Therapy’s Founder and author of Apartment Therapy: The Eight-Step Home Cure, Maxwell Ryan; Executive Lifestyle Director, Charli Penn; and me! Here’s when you can expect us to be live to answer your questions in the comment section of that day’s task.

  • Monday, April 15: Maxwell Ryan will be live from 12 to 1 p.m. EDT
  • Friday, April 19: Charli Penn will be live from 12 to 1 p.m. EDT
  • Wednesday, April 24: Stephanie Nguyen will be live from 12 to 1 p.m. EDT

How do I join?

All you need to do is sign up with your email in the box at the bottom of this page, or jump on this signup page. You’ll start receiving those daily assignments in your inbox, so you can put them on your calendar and plan how to get that day’s task done.

What can I expect?

We’ll be cleaning around the home from top to bottom, starting high up at the ceilings and working our way down to the floors. We’ll be doing things like tackling the bathroom, caring for appliances, and even cleaning our rugs. But, no matter the task, please remember that you can shape it to fit what’s right for you. Skip, change, or amend each assignment because, let’s face it, the idea of deep cleaning is daunting.

Our Spring Cleaning Cure has 10 tasks that can be altered to fit your needs. There’s a range of assignments — some are lighter lifts, while others may require you to dig in — but how much energy you devote to each is up to you. For instance, do you need to clean your favorite window but the weather outside is still unbearable? Then just clean the inside and call it a day! Or skip it altogether if this isn’t something that suits your home.

We just hope that we can take the big, daunting idea of “deep cleaning” your home and make it more manageable — and hopefully, this gives you the momentum to keep on cleaning. 

The Cure Program is a tradition here at Apartment Therapy — it happens every January, April, and September. Click here to learn more about the year-round program and when to sign up.
