My house is clean enough. I wouldn’t boast that you could eat off my floors and you might see the occasional dust bunny peeking out from under the sofa, but it is pretty organized and clutter free.
I always enjoy reading “behind the scenes” or “day in the life of” posts of other moms, so I thought I would share my cleaning routine with you.
I try to do at least one load of laundry each day. That way it doesn’t pile up too bad. Also, I hang most of my clothes up to dry on indoor drying racks, and there is only so much room to hang things.
I also try to keep up with the kitchen during the day. I can’t stand a dirty table or cluttered counter tops, so my kitchen gets cleaned throughout the day. But I don’t mind dishes in the sink, and I constantly break the fly lady’s #1 rule. Oh well!
Dirty floors drive me crazy, so I am constantly sweeping the kitchen and anywhere I see those pesky dust bunnies.
Each week I write the following things down on the dry erase board in my office:
- Sinks and Toilets
- Mirrors/Glass or Dusting (I rotate these…)
- Ceiling Fans
- Kitchen (Cabinets, Appliances, etc.)
- Bathroom Tile
