Come Clean – Wrap Up
This month we’ve been doing the Come Clean Challenge to jump start the 2016 cleaning calendar theme – Come Clean in 2016. Each week this month we’ve been doing simple, daily tasks and incorporating them into monthly cleaning routine. I hope that you’re finding that your house is cleaner and more organized than it was at the beginning of the challenge.
Now that the Come Clean Challenge is over, how can you keep up with your homekeeping in the midst of life? Start by grabbing the FREE February cleaning calendar here.
Make sure you’re getting the support and encouragement you need to keep on cleaning! Follow along on Instagram, Facebook, and join my private Facebook group – Homekeeping Society – you’ll love the support and other people completing tasks right also side each other. My monthly subscription – HOMEKEEPING SOCIETY is a great way to keep up with the dailies – go here to check it out.
Then, every day, start with the daily tasks and make sure those get completed – wipe counters, check floors, one load of laundry, clutter THEN when those are completed or started, complete the weekly tasks – Monday is bathrooms day (follow my speed clean plan to get started), Tuesday is dusting day, etc. I work QUICKLY and get the task finished up in about 15 minutes. Think of ways to maximize your time and effort by adding another task or two to what you’re already working on.
Today is the day for a FINAL SWEEP THROUGH HOME – QUICK CLEAN – Get ready for the week ahead by making sure surfaces remain cleaned off and everything is tidied up. Relax and enjoy the new habits you’ve formed and the tidy home you’ve achieved this month!

Come Clean – Wrap Up
The excitement over Clean Mama HOME has blown me away! Microfiber is BACK IN STOCK!
I need this so desperately thank you! I am getting ready for my first baby and I want to make cleaning more of a habit for me and I want the house to be perfect before baby! They say you need to deep clean the house and this will help me stay focused! Having it printed out will also motivate my husband and know what’s going on I can’t wait to start this challenge!
My house IS cleaner and everyone is pitching in (most of the time) to keep it that way. I am proudest of my clean kitchen island. It’s calming in the morning and inviting when I come home in the afternoon:).
I absolutely loved this challenge!! I can really notice my routine starting and my house is staying cleaner and more organized!! Never thought it was possible by doing a little each day and not having a full clean the entire house day… which is draining! I am so excited to have this routine and I plan to stick to it! I even cleaned my vacuum cleaner today after reading your article on that! Who knew 🙂
Thank you for all your hard working keeping us all organized!

Yay! Thanks for your kind words Kim!
I really appreciated the challenge!! It got me doing a little (very little) bit every day and some things I had never done in this home (wiping out the cabinets, cleaning the oven, etc). While I didn’t and don’t have enough time to do the cleaning challenge tasks on top of the weekly task on top of the daily task, I was able almost every day to complete the cleaning challenge task and keep up with the dishes (my nemesis). It made me feel like I can do it. Even if in February, I’m only doing one task and the dishes each day (today was laundry, dishes, and wipe down kitchen counters) at least I’m making progress and things aren’t getting out of hand like they were.
