With the back to school rush it can be difficult to stay on top of your house cleaning routine. Perfection Cleaning has put together a simple, and effective house cleaning routine guaranteed to keep you on top of your chores during this busy time!
In case you suffer from a case of the Monday’s this day is simple and straightforward. Light tidying including dishes, filing paperwork, and picking up toys. Spot clean your kitchen or bathrooms as you go and ensure all coats are hung, shoes are put away and laundry is placed in it’s appropriate hampers
Get a jump start by cleaning two of the most lived in and largest spaces in your home; your living room and kitchen. It is essential you clean top to bottom to save you time in the long run. In the living room start by dusting furniture, cleaning windows and/or mirrors, finish by washing and/or vacuuming the floors. When cleaning the kitchen now is a great time to clean the fridge out. Throw away old or expired food, wipe down shelves and organize contents. Inspect the furniture for pet hair, crumbs, etc. and tidy those up as well. Ensure all children’s books and toys are put away at the end of each day to make Tuesday a breeze.
Tackle the bathroom’s today and say goodbye to the germs for the rest of the week. Cleaning the bathrooms is a chore most people dread so getting it out of the way midweek gives you an easy start and finish every week. Wipe down all countertops and the sink, clean the mirror, restock the toilet paper, empty the garbage, clean the toilet and scrub the shower. Reminder: don’t forget about wiping the area around the bottom of the toilet extra well. This is the perfect place for bacteria, hair, lint, etc. to get trapped.
Ah laundry, the never-ending story of adult life. Do a few loads of laundry to get this never ending chore off your list for the week. As a time saver, have hampers for each type of laundry (lights, darks, socks/underwear, etc) or hampers for each family member. This will reduce sorting time for those doing the laundry on laundry day! File any paperwork you have finished with into it’s appropriate location.
Tackle your bedrooms and get ready for the weekend. Dust all furniture and around all picture frames. Wipe out windowsills to remove dust and/or pet hair. Vacuum and/or sweep and wash floors. Ensure all laundry is put away into dressers and/or closets.
Saturday is the perfect day to wash all the bedding in your home. So much bacteria can sit in your bedsheets without regular washing. Plus, who doesn’t sleep better in clean sheets? If its nice out, opt to use a clothes line to dry your clothes if you have access to one. The naturally fresh smell will guarantee a goodnights sleep.
