Super spring cleaning

If you know me personally, you know that I'm a CLEAN FREAK!!! I take spring cleaning literally and it lasts all spring. It's a great excuse for me to get to all the little projects I've been meaning to do all year. A few days ago, I pulled the stove out and cleaned behind and under it. The dried food bits between the stove top and the counter were really bugging me and I couldn't get at 'em. Of course I do all the normal stuff, but I also do things like this:

I completely take apart my vacuum attachments and clean them thoroughly. My husband thinks it's funny and always says: "Oh no!" when I tell him I've taken something apart because sometimes I have to have help putting it back together. I try to reach every nook and cranny in the house. I also make most of my own cleaners out of  natural ingredients. I use my vacuum a lot, it feels so gratifying sucking up dirt, dust and grime. I absolutely hate dusting, but using my vacuum makes it a little easier and faster.
What is your spring cleaning advice?
