“You never know what you have, until you clean your room.”
The house that runs smoothly is one that is run by a schedule. Monday is a day to put your house back into its groove after the weekend, I always find the best place to start is in the kitchen.
Monday – Kitchen
q Apply oven cleaner and let sit
q Dust window shades, sills and baseboards
q Clean and wash 2 cupboards and 2 drawers in a weekly rotation
q Wipe down cabinet doors and walls behind sink and stove
q Wipe down all appliances
q Clean fridge: inside/out
q Clean stove: inside/out
q Wash garbage bin
q Clean drain
q Wash or beat rugs
q Sweep, vacuum and mop floor
I usually fill a small bucket with hot soapy water and a microfibre cloth and wipe down all surfaces after I give them a light dusting. I do this for every room except the bathroom where I use Lysol wipes.
