A Cleaning Schedule That Lets You Avoid ‘Cleaning Day’


Do you love having a clean house but hate having a designated cleaning day? It can seem that the only solution is to hire a cleaning service. But that can be expensive, and many people who hire others to do the dirty work for them often end up cleaning before the cleaning staff arrives anyway! You can avoid spending an entire day cleaning the house if you break the housekeeping chores up into about 20-minute segments each day of the week. This will let you maintain a pretty clean house much of the time without having to spend your entire Saturday scrubbing.

Here we’ve broken up most of the cleaning necessities into shorter sessions you can fit into each day of the week — with one cleaning-free day off to enjoy your spic and span house! See if this cleaning schedule could work for you…

Monday: Dust
Nobody wants Mondays to be more miserable than they already are, so reserve one of the easier tasks on this list for the beginning of the week. Grab your dust rag or dusting device of choice and dust furniture, bookshelves, dressers, night stands and the TV. You can even tackle this chore during commercials to break it up even more.

Click on to see how you can have a clean house without having a cleaning day!

With kids it’s nearly impossible to keep a clean house. Do you break your cleaning up throughout the week? —Erin
