Because we just got done with a major cleaning project, let's do a little planning. This planning is for your regular cleaning.
Here's the challenge and how to do it.
This week, go through all of your cleaning rituals. Evaluate them.
How do you do it?
What is your schedule?
Do you have a schedule?
Do you have a central location for your cleaning supplies?
This is your decision, your home. Decide which rooms matter the most. Which rooms are top priority?
Spread the chores out so that you are not crowding your to do list.
For instance, I love to start off my week with fresh linens. So, Mondays are for changing and cleaning the bed sheets and bath towels. While I am at it, I clean all of the bathrooms. A great way to begin the week.
Another example: Tuesdays I wash the kitchen towels and washcloths that I have been putting in a bin every day of the week. While I am at it, I clean the kitchen (areas that I do daily and also the areas that have not been done daily, i.e., the fridge.
You should customize the schedule so that it fits the time you have available. This is not the same for everyone.
You should also customize the schedule dependent on the size of home you have to clean, as well as the size of family you are doing it for.
Remember, delegate if you have children. They need to learn responsibility.
A schedule will make it so that your family will know what to expect, and will make it so that you don't have cleaning jobs that stack up.
Let's check in about one week.
