My House Cleaning Routine
MONDAY: I clean the kitchen (except the floors) - I start by tidying and clearing as much off the counter tops as possible, putting them away in cabinets; I use disinfecting wipes to wipe down the range hood, range top, outside and inside of the microwave, outside of oven and refrigerator, front of dishwasher, and all counter tops; I wipe my dining table and all the place-mats; and I use Comet to scrub my sink; we also wash my 12yo's bed sheets every two weeks
TUESDAY: I clean the laundry room (except the floors) - This isn't too difficult. It mainly consists of wiping down the laundry machines (for the washer, that means lifting the lid and cleaning inside the top rim). In addition, my 12yo cleans her bathroom this day, as it is right off of the laundry room. I wash my 3yo's bed sheets every two weeks
WEDNESDAY: I clean the other two bathrooms (the master and the boys' bathroom) - I use glass cleaner with paper towels on the mirrors; I use disinfecting wipes to wipe all the counter tops, the toilet, and the sink; I pour bleach into the toilet bowl and use a brush to swish it around and clean up under the rim; I use a squirt bottle of diluted bleach to spray the showers and tubs; I also wash the master bed sheets every two weeks
THURSDAY: On this day, I dust and vacuum the bedrooms, hallway, playroom, and living room; I wash my 8yo's bed sheets every two weeks
FRIDAY: I clean the hard floors - the kitchen, the laundry room, and the front entry floors; I also wash my 6yo's bed sheets every two weeks
SATURDAY: We usually do random house projects on Saturdays (things that don't need to be done weekly); I also wash my 4yo's bed sheets every two weeks
That is our current cleaning schedule. Daily tidying, laundry, and dishes happen through our chore charts.
