Maybe your Thanksgiving guests left your house in need of a cleaning.
Or maybe you are preparing for Christmas celebrations and want your home to be clean.
Either way, we all want a clean house, but we don’t want to spend much time doing it.
I’ve tried several methods, but it seems that the best two options are to either spend one day cleaning top to bottom, or split it up and do one task each day.
An entire day of cleaning would be miserable and exhausting to me, so I chose the second method– one cleaning task per weekday.
I have split my cleaning to-dos into 8 small tasks that can be done in 30 minutes or less. So I clean the house over a span of two weeks, which worked perfectly for me. (With three people, my house only seems to need to be cleaned every other week.)
This is the checklist I created and posted on the inside of my pantry door to remind and motivate me, and today I’m sharing it with you.
You can download my house cleaning checklist for free.
But, my strategy might not work for you. Different strokes for different folks, right?
So, I gathered some other cleaning checklists that might work for you as well.
Check out this cleaning infographic from Wrapped in Rust. Just looking at it makes the chores seem easy.
Don’t let this more detailed 7-Day cleaning schedule from Viva Veltoro intimidate you. If you need an assist to remember the little things like restocking toilet paper and changing sheets, this may be the schedule for you.
Pick one and try it out. It doesn’t matter what method you choose, just that you get the cleaning done with the least amount of headache and effort.
Let me know what method helps you spend less time cleaning and more time doing the things you actually want to do.
