Day 1 – 31 Days to a Clean House + FREE Printable
It’s here – 31 Days to a Clean House! I hope you’re excited and ready to clean your whole house this month – I’ve been working hard to find just the right mix of cleaning tasks to clean an entire house in only 10-15 minutes a day. Of course, you can work longer or shorter than that, but with a little determination and gumption, we can totally do it. And think about the clean start your holiday season will be off to – it’ll be great! And please don’t fret if you miss a day or two or come to the party a little late – I have some built in make-up time. Or you can just move to the day that we are on and catch up when you can.
Not into cleaning every day? No worries! I have giveaways, free printables and other fun posts planned this month too!
I made a printable for us to track our progress, you could just take it and run, but I think you’ll like the daily motivation
and tips and tricks
that this series will provide. So come back every day for the assignment and check off your progress as we go. You can go here
to grab the free printable.
So are you ready to get started?
Today’s task is to dust edges and corners.
Use a long-handled duster or this trick:
Start on your second floor (if you have one), dust all the edges and corners of your home. Work quickly, trying to keep your time under 15 minutes – I like to set a timer to keep me from veering off into other cleaning tasks.
That’s it! Pretty simple and if you keep moving and dusting, you should be able to make quick work of the dusting. Make sure you are shaking your duster out periodically to eliminate dusty streaks as you work.
I have more free printables here too! Are you excited to get your house clean this month? I’m so happy that you are here today and ready to jump in!
