DAY 16 – 31 Days to a Clean House
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.
If you want to keep up on other daily cleaning tasks using my simple routine you can check out my free October cleaning schedule
– to learn more about my cleaning routine and how I make cleaning a little bit every day an easy and manageable thing that we do. I have more free printables
Today’s assignment is our kitchen counters – in true 15 minute fashion, follow these simple steps:
1. Set/start a timer for 15 minutes
2. Clear your counters of all clutter (don’t sort and put away, simply put the stuff that you know won’t be going back on the counter in a basket or bag to sort later
3. Using your favorite cleaner, spray and wipe down all counters. I like to use the spray cleaner and then a damp rag or sponge to ensure a really clean countertop
When returning items to your kitchen counters, try ‘staging’ it for an uncluttered effect and easier maintenance. Here are a couple pretty counters for inspiration from my Pinterest
Happy Counter Clearing!
