Simple, Daily Cleaning Routines

Simple, Daily Cleaning Routines
Daily cleaning routines are a wonderful thing!!!
They help you keep your house clean with very little time or effort. You just decide when a task will be most convenient to do and in 5 minutes or less it is done!
This is easy to do even if you have a baby, homeschool or work outside your home. I am going to give you an example of my daily routine so you can get an idea of how this works.
7:00- Wake up and take dirty laundry to laundry room, sort and start a load.
8:00- After fixing my hair and brushing my teeth I wipe down the mirror and counter. I quickly clean the toilets with a toilet brush (no cleaner).

8:15- I unload dishwasher and put clothes in the dryer.

8:30- After breakfast, I clear the dishes from table, rinse then put them in the dishwasher and wipe the table. (This is a good job for kids.)
10:00- During a school break the kids and I get clothes out of dryer, fold them and put them up. * I try to only do one load a day if possible and I don’t do laundry on weekends.
12:00- Following lunch, the kids and I clear dishes from the table, wipe table, rinse dishes and load.
4:00- Quick clean, At this time we run around the house (this makes it fun, ) to make sure everything is where it is supposed to be and we quickly vacuum with a rechargeable vacuum. (Kids beg to vacuum with this.)
6:30- We clear the dishes and wipe the table and counters. I have the kids vacuum the kitchen floor  with the rechargeable vacuum and I start the dishwasher.
7:30- During little brother's bath, I wipe down the kids’ bathroom counters and mirror.
8:00-During the kids’ bedtime snack , I clean out the sink and get the coffee ready for the next morning.
The best way to set up your routine up is to figure out what you want to get done in a day and place it where you can most logically get it accomplished with little effort. Even though my list may look like a lot, it is really not. You get to the point where you don’t even realize you are doing anything. Good luck setting up your routine.
