Daily Room by Room Cleaning
Here is a room-by -room list of things you can do to make your home seem cleaner. The best part it just takes a few minutes a day.
Make sure the dishwasher is empty every morning so there is no excuse for leaving dishes in the sink.
Wipe down the counters at the end of the night. If you use a nicely scented cleaner, it will smell wonderful in the morning.
Quickly wipe the handles of the dishwasher, fridge and oven.
Scrub out the sink at the end of the evening so you wake up to a “clean start.”
Place all the dirty dishrags and towels in the washing machine and put clean ones out for the next morning.
Family Room –
Place all the remotes in a designated place like a basket or wooden box.
Fold the blankets and place them on the couch, recliner or in a basket.
Fluff and place the pillows where they belong.
Straighten any coffee or side tables and remove dishes.
Straighten the bed covers. If you don’t have time to make it – at least make the covers look somewhat organized.
Give your pillows a nice fluff so your bed will look inviting when you are ready to go to bed.
Use a hamper with a cover for laundry. This looks more appealing than open baskets of dirty clothes.
Give your toilet a quick “swish” every morning. Don’t bother with a cleaning solution, just use the brush and swish it. This one chore can give you an extra few days between cleanings.
Dilute your shower cleaner with water and use it as a daily shower spray. Lightly spray the shower with the cleanser after you are done. The diluted cleaner will work all day removing soap scum.
Squeegee your shower quickly after each use. Soap scum becomes nonexistent.
