Use a mixture of vinegar and water as an all purpose cleaner or ammonia if there is still grime on the glass after regular cleaning. Put window coverings up before you start scrubbing so no one gets injured by flying shards of glass. A good routine is to wash them every few months with soap and water followed by wiping down with paper towels or microfiber cloths.
Clearing out clutter can make your home feel much more spacious and make it easier to find items when you need them. Put away clothes that don't fit into a summer wardrobe or donate old toys to charity. Take the time now to store winter gear in a safe place so they won't get ruined from dampness if there is rain this season. It's also best not to put off these tasks if possible as spring cleaning will mean many hours of hard work rather than just an hour or two!

Whether you want to set up an outdoor dining area, make it easier for children to play in the backyard without tripping over everything on the ground or just enjoy some fresh air while reading a book on a couch with bugs and bees around you- there are many ways that this will make summer more enjoyable!
Adding greenery indoors can make any room feel brighter and friendlier than if they were deprived of natural light. Pick a few flowers such as daisies, lilies, and geraniums to make your home feel more summery.

If there are any stains from oils or dust particles after changing, spritz some water onto the new filter and wipe with paper towels before installing it into its slot.

If there are any leftovers from holiday meals (which is very likely!), take them out now so they don't go bad before being eaten. It may be helpful to make a list of what needs to stay fresh for the next few months.
