Do you need a cleaning routine that works? One of a homemaker’s greatest challenges is to come up with an efficient and effective cleaning schedule.
WHY IS A CLEAN HOME IMPORTANT?
I don’t know about you, but when my home feels organized, I feel settled, content, and happy. In contrast, when my home is disorganized, cluttered, or dirty, I feel unsettled and anxious.
A clean home has a number of benefits:
- research shows that a clean and organized home contributes to greater happiness
- you save time because everything is orderly and in its proper place
- there’s less illness because they are less germs and contagions
THE SECRET TO HAVING A CLEAN HOME
The secret to having a clean home is to have an effective cleaning routine and organizing schedule. I love a clean and organized home, so today I would share my cleaning routine and a free printable with you!
Over the years I’ve tried many different methods to organize my home. However, my most successful attempt to cleanliness involves a custom-made check list. You know me… I love my checklists (and I love any excuse to make one)!
This cleaning routine takes me less than 1/2 an hour a day to complete. The weekly organization tasks add about another hour to my overall weekly cleaning schedule.
As you may have noticed, weekly projects are included in this cleaning schedule. I find that donating, throwing out, or recycling at least five items a week keeps the clutter minimal.
Also, if you laminate the checklist and use a dry-erase marker, this form can be reused every week.Check out this efficient cleaning method and cleaning checklist! #cleaning #homemaking Click To Tweet

I love your list….thank you so much!
I am the same way! A disorganized home muddled my mind! I don’t have a checklist I just do what I see needs to be done. During the week I try to keep the home surface clean and organized. Saturday mornings the whole family deep cleans and does yard work. I am grateful my husband is so clean. I know I would be exhausted trying to do it alone. I love to see how others manage their homes. I’m going to have a closer look at your schedule. :)
I don’t make lists for cleaning anymore. I will say that since it is just hubby and I the house stays very clean. We also do most of the cleaning on the weekend.
I love checklists and a clean house too! Thanks for the printable!
Great checklist. Thanks so much!
I make lists of all kinds and then promptly forget all about them!! I definitely like the idea of getting rid of 5 items every week (recycle, donate etc)–that would definitely make my apartment less cluttered.
