• Tell Your Friends

We love music in my household. In fact, my roommates and I have a speaker in just about every room of the house. They help us power through our chores whether it’s tackling piles of laundry, scrubbing the tub or vacuuming – we do a lot of vacuuming.

Spend more time dancing and less time dusting with Design Happen's spring cleaning playlist.

With March finally underway, I want to kick off spring cleaning season by sharing a couple of playlists to help you breeze through your household tasks. Categorized by cleaning mood with everything from today’s pop hits to ‘80s power ballads, you’re sure to find something to get you motivated.

You can listen to the entire mix here, or read on for the individual playlists.

    My two old-fave cleaning albums are the first Franz Ferdinand and Weezer's Blue. But I could totally see cleaning to these jams. :) Thanks for the suggestions!
