Clean Freak

Having a clean house has always been tremendously important to me. I grew up in a military family where things have always been super neat and tidy. I am so thankful for this as it has served me well in adulthood. Because I am this way, when people pop in to say "hi" I am never scrambling to clean up! Although there are usually a few things to pick up because #kids.

I have always maintained a clean home and have had help with deep cleaning for a while. When quarentine hit and our houskeeper was unavailable, I came up with a system that I am going to share with you today! This system allows me to not dedicate 4-5 hours cleaning on the weekend and only takes a few minutes daily to attain!!!

Monday: Bathrooms (this is the longest day because we have 4 bathrooms)

  1. Wipe down the counters

  2. Clean mirrors

  3. Clean toilets

  4. Clean showers/tubs

  5. Sweep and Mop

  6. Wash rugs ( I do this every other week)

Tuesday: Living Room/Media Room/ Play Room

  1. Pick up any toys that are out ( I make my kiddos do this!)

  2. Dust

  3. Wipe down window sills and blinds

  4. Clean under tables/couches

  5. Wipe down baseboards

  6. Vacuum

Wednesday: Kitchen

  1. Wipe down fridge (inside and out)

  2. Wipe cabinets and countertops

  3. Clean microwave and stovetop

  4. Clean coffee pot ( I run vinegar through mine once a month)

  5. Wipe down appliances

  6. Wipe down baseboards

  7. Sweep/Mop kitchen and foyer ( I sweep every day and mop every 2-3 days

Saturday: NOTHING

Sunday: Miscillaneous

  1. Wash bedding /sheets

  2. Empty all trash cans in the house (our trash is on Mondays and Thursdays)

  3. Clean out the fridge of all expired foods

Daily Tasks:

  1. Load/unload dishwasher

  2. Wipe down kitchen counters

  3. Spot sweep/vacuum

  4. Do one load of laundry per day (wash/dry/fold/put away)

  5. Make beds

  6. Pick up clutter and put it where it belongs- I do this every evening before bed. I pick up any toys the boys have brought downstairs and anything Nick and I have left out.

I hope this inspires you to make a schedule that works for your home and your family. If you use this, let me know. And if you have any ideas for me, drop them below! I love to have a clean home and I love to utilize my time wisely!
