Clean + Organized – Quick Clean
Today is vacuuming day – I start with a thorough vacuuming on my second floor, I vacuum the steps and then I move downstairs. When I vacuum, I vacuum all the floors – tile, wood, and carpet. I also use the attachments as needed and get corners and crevices. I find that by doing this once a week, the floors look fresh and clean all week long (for the most part). And yes, I only vacuum the whole house once a week. I do occasionally do touch ups with the vacuum, broom, or sweeper. A great thing about this technique is that all the floors are prepped for tomorrow – Thursday – floor washing day.
And I will tell you that I don’t wear a wrap like this one – fun, right?

How about a couple Quick Clean ideas for the week? Remember…these are intended to only take 1-5 minutes and boost your cleaning for the week if you have the time.
wipe down light switches
use a wipe and quickly wipe down all switches in your home
wipe down phones and remotes
use a wipe and quickly wipe all phones and remotes
clean out your cutlery drawer
empty out the cutlery tray, rinse and wipe out the drawer before returning cutlery
Any projects you’re working on this week?

I am impressed with your cleaning schedule… I wish I could get more organized but I find that I spend most of my day cleaning the kitchen and picking up after my 2 daughters (under 3), husband, dog and 2 cats… lol not that I’m complaining.
I HAVE been working on the “1 load of laundry a day” thing and it seems to work until I let a few days slide. uuh.
Love your blog 🙂
I love your blog! It keeps me motivated. I love to have a clean house, therefore I love to clean. But I’ve realized I’m not organized enough. And I don’t get everything cleaned every week like I did before having my son. You have taught me to get on a schedule. So thank you!!!
Ditto to what Stacey wrote. Sure enjoy your blog.
Ditto to Stacey again. This is definitely a motivating blog. This week I’m cleaning out my closet.

Currently I’m just trying to tackle unpacking the new house from the big move. Once the big work is done, I’m definitely going to try and organize a cleaning schedule like you!

Your cleaning schedule is inspiring! I like that you incorporate vacuum accessories into your regiment. It doesn’t matter what type of vacuum you use, as long as you’re using good vacuum cleaners and vacuum regularly, you’re set!
