So last year I posted my 30 day cleaning schedule here. Now we have moved out of a flat and into a house, I have found that it has become defunct and doesn’t really work for me anymore.
So I decided to ditch the 30 day routine, where I have to constantly check the list, and I have moved to a ‘zone’ approach that ties in with a day of the week.
And before anyone comments…I am well aware that tornadoes leave destruction in their wake and not cleanliness. I just feel like a tornado when I blitz clean for 15 minutes….and if you don’t…you are doing it wrong.
As today is Monday….it only seems fitting to share today’s zone with you!
Monday – The Living Room
Living rooms can become dumping grounds for all sorts of rubbish. Clear out anything that doesn’t belong, I use a basket to pop it all in so I can return things to their homes as I go upstairs etc.
What is the most urgent cleaning thing to do? Dusting? Go mad for 15 minutes. Need a good hoover? Go for it!
Stuck for ideas…..does it seem pretty tidy already? Always do something, else teeny jobs will mount up to being jobs you really don’t want to tackle.
Here are a list of jobs that you may not think to do!
Wipe down your windowsills
Bash dust and dirt out of cushions
Hoover the sofa
Organise your shelves
Fish out grot from under the sofa/coffee table
Polish all wood
Clean lightswitches and plug sockets
Clean skirting boards
Wipe down your doors (the raised fancy doors get ever so dusty!)
Antibacterial any workspaces (desk/tables etc)
Empty and wipe out waste paper bin
Clean all reflective surfaces and windows
Antibacterial all handles
Seeeeee? Plenty to do! Pop back tomorrow for Tuesday’s zone!
