  • I don't have a schedule but I do tidy up my house on daily basis.

  • I clean every day, but still follow a routine each morning. What I actually do varies based on need, but I clean each room in a specific order for some reason - not quite sure why. I start with the kitchen, then the bathrooms, living room, dining room, and upstairs hall closet. Laundry is done on an as-needed basis, and my boys clean their own bedroom. My bedroom is almost always fairly tidy because I just don't spend much time in there. It gets vacuumed once a week or so.

  • Hall closet? Not sure what I was thinking - that should read upstairs hallway.

  • I clean everyday, with 3 boys and 3 dogs, I have to.... I do deep cleaning once a week, on Sundays so the house is good for the rest of the week...

  • I get up, get the kiddo on the bus (M-Th) then sit down with a cup of coffee. Then i do the dishes, eat breakfast and pick up the kitchen floor. sweep/swiffer and hit any spots on the floor. Then I hit a particularly messy spot somewhere in the house (an example is the top of the fridge I did yesterday). Figure out dinner and pull out/prep what needs to be done at that point to make it easier to make. Then I pick up the toys in the living room and if I have time I walk the dog. Then I chill online till DS gets home from school (at noon). We eat lunch then play till nap time. If I am not satisfied with the spot I cleaner earlier, then I go back to it, if I am I may or may not tackle another spot depending on where/when DS fell asleep. Then its time to start dinner and DH gets home. We hang out for a while then have dinner. Then its my chance to chill while he manages DS for a couple hours, then bath time and bed.

  • I tidy everyday but, "clean" on Friday and Saturday.

    Answer by Kathryn620 at 6:00 PM on Oct. 18, 2009

  • When I was a SAHM I vacuumed all of the carpets and cleaned the bathrooms and kitchen floor every day. I cleaned thoroughly on Friday in case we had company. Now that I am working, I clean the bathrooms when I do laundry- about 3 times a week, and the kitchen floor on Saturday. My husband vacuums on Saturday.

  • I get up at 5am and clean until 9. I clean 5 hours (ocd)

    THEN, I clean before bed if things need straightened up.
    My husband calls me DRILL Sergeant when It comes to my cleaning.
    I'm also a germaphobe.
