My Weekly Cleaning Routine

I thought some of you may be interested in hearing my cleaning routine.

I definitely like my house to be clean and tidy but with minimal effort.  I work full time so I am out of the house for at least 10 hours per day so it stays pretty clean with no-one around to dirty it up.  There are only 2 of us living here and we don't have any pets (although I would love a dog but that's a whole different blog post).


So here is how my cleaning regime tends to go:


Daily - Fill & empty dishwasher (my partner and I take it in turns).  
Wipe the kitchen surfaces with a Flash anti bacterial wipe. 
General tidying to keep clutter from building up.
I use a dustpan and brush for when crumbs end up on the kitchen floor, would love a little hand held hover though. 

Friday (evening)
Hoovering - The house is hoovered top to bottom.
Mop hard floors - The kitchen and bathroom get steam mopped (I have carpet everywhere else).
Bathroom - Sink, bath, shower cubicle and toilet throughly cleaned.

Ad-hoc
Dusting - Where required to be honest.
Washing up - As I have a dishwasher I really only have to wash up when there is something that is not dishwasher safe.
Mirrors - Sprayed with Mr Muscle window cleaner and wiped with kitchen roll when necessary.

Saturday
Laundry day - I do 2-3 loads of washing per week.  The bedding is stripped and washed every 2 weeks.  Dried on the line when weather permits or in the tumble drier.
Peg tin from Home Sense
Sunday
Ironing - It normally takes me around 30 minutes and is slipped in around whatever I am doing that day. 

I hope I haven't forget anything!  The Friday jobs sometimes slip to a Saturday morning depending on what I am up to, I don't get too anal about it all.  If I know visitors are coming I have a quick whizz around to make everything ship shape.

If you have done a blog post or YouTube video on your routine please leave a link in the comments below as I would love to take a look.

  1. Interesting to know other people's routines :)
    I work full time too so I know how annoying it can be to have to come home and find the time to clean!
    I recently picked up one of the Karcher steam mops and love it!!
