Let someone else do it? Well yes that’s one way. Unfortunately I don’t have anyone else to do it except me.
This is what I do to get my house clean in 30 minutes.
Have all the supplies you need for each room your cleaning. It also helps to have a basket that you can put items in that belong in a different room with you so as you go through the house your placing items in the basket and then placing them where they belong.
During the week I use all purpose cleaning wipes to go in and quickly wipe everything down. This usually takes less than 5 minutes to do.
Bathroom schedule for my house is :
Monday: total clean top to bottom, sweep and mop
Tuesday and Thursday: Quick wipe with all purpose cleaning wipes
Wednesday and Friday: Quick wipe with all purpose cleaning wipes and sweep and mop.
I use an all purpose basket for most of the rest of the house. It contains: air freshener, dusting agent and microfiber cloth, dusting wand (for the ceiling fans) and vacuum cleaner. My vacuum cleaner comes with a filter that can be taken out and washed. To save money I put a few drops of essential oil on the filter and that last an entire month!
Monday: Total cleaning including change sheets
Tues and Thurs: Make bed, straighten up, use air freshener on the sheets
Wed and Fri: Make bed, vacuum, use the air freshener on the sheets
I use the same cleaning basket that I use for the bedrooms.
My Front door opens into the living room and included with the other cleaning supplies I also sweep and mop and front door threshold.
Monday: Dust everything including the pictures on the wall, Use an electronics cleaner for the television screen, dust the ceiling fan and blinds. Vacuum; spray furniture with air freshener. Put Rivers toys in her toy basket.
Tues and Thurs: Straighten up, pick up toys, spray furniture with air freshener
Wed and Fri: Vacuum, straighten up, pick up toys, and spray furniture with air freshener
To keep my tablecloth clean I use placemats that can be wiped daily.
Monday: Dust everything including ceiling fans and blinds, vacuum, Launder tablecloth.
Tue and Thurs: Keep table cleaned off, straighten room
Wed and Fri: vacuum and continue to keep table clear and room clear
This room is the gathering room and let’s face it needs to be cleaned on a daily basis. That is if you cook daily otherwise you might get away with not cleaning it daily.
On Mondays: including the daily washing of dishes, I use my kitchen all-purpose cleanser to the counter tops, sweep and mop the floor. Take out the trash. This is the day I clean out the refrigerator of any leftovers from the week before, clean the oven and clean the pantry.
Tue and Thurs: Of course daily dish washing, clean the counter tops with all-purpose cleaner, sweep and take out trash.
Wed and Fri: Still daily dish washing, clean counter tops, along with sweeping; mop the floors and of course take out the trash.
This room is the easiest and fastest to clean. On the days I do the laundry I clean the room.
Because there are two of us, I do the laundry twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays.
On those days after the laundry is finished I clean the washer and dryer using a damp sponge and all purpose cleanser to clean lid and outside of appliances. For the inside of the washer fill washer with water and cups of vinegar, run through cycle. Clean lint filter in dryer. Sweep and mop floor.
By taking one day out of the week to do all my major cleaning I only need to spend a few minutes in each room the other days of the week to keep it clean. The most important thing to remember is to not let cleaning your house stress you out. Take it one room at a time and if you have a schedule it will go more smoothly.
