Be honest! When you clean, do you get the deep dark corners, or do you only clean what's visible?

I've been meaning to give my bathroom a good scrub-down lately, but I keep getting sidetracked. Dammit.

  • Once a week I deep clean, the rest of the week I straighten up and vacuum , and dust daily... With 3 dogs, and 3 kids I have to.

  • I do basic cleaning. Holidays and kids parties are the only other times I might deep clean and it all boils down to time available to do it. I feel that if a guest in my home feels the desire to investigate every nook and cranny of my home, then they really don't need to be here in the first place.

    I live by this motto, my cousin has it hanging on a plaque on her kitchen wall:

    "If you are here to see me, come right in, if you are here to see my home, please make an appointment"

    i love it!

  • I do a thorough cleaning. Save me time later. Takes only a couple seconds more to do it right.

  • I don't know. I get to cleaning and just don't know when to stop. I always find something that leads me to something else. You know, if I clean this, then I need to clean that, and then this needs it and then....... It never stops.

  • I've got pets who shed like crazy, so I vacuum, dust, and sweep on pretty much a daily basis - - but I don't do all the nooks and crannies! Those get done every few months when DH takes the kids all day and I spend all day cleaning.
