Weekly Cleaning Schedule

Here is a checklist to help you get through your weekly cleaning schedule. Having a checklist will lead to faster household cleaning as you won’t have to backtrack or worry about what to do next. You can easily break this up, making Monday “bathroom day” and Wednesday “kitchen day” for example, to create a routine that works for you.

As always, it’s important to pick up before you begin your work so you aren’t cleaning around things. You can do this either by making one large sweep of the whole house, putting things where they belong, or moving room by room.Have a peek at this siteĀ this article.
