  • Personally, I can't stand everything being perfect and spotless. I feel like I live in a motel or a hospital if everything is perfect. I'm good with some clutter and not vacuuming every day.

  • Ummm...well....the whole thing? **grin** I work two jobs. Very little cleaning time. I plan a massive garage cleanout on May 28, which will be my first day off in months. THen I'm doing the rest of the house when I'm on vacation the second week of June.

  • It depends on if people come over unannounced or if they give me warning. If I know some one is coming over I clean up. But if the just drop by unannounced, my kitchen would be dirty and the bathroom might not be really clean.

    3. Sweep
    4. Dishes
    5. 1-2 loads of laundry
    6. General Tidy up

    Friday-Laundry Room

    Weekly Laundry

  • my house sounds like yours..... it appears to be very clean but i would not suggest licking the floors or doing a white glove test under the entertainment center lol. i am really bad about scrubbing the floors and cleaning the bathrooms..... it's torture lol

  • I'm a hotel housekeeper, so cleaning is what I do best, next to being a mom! My house is clean, but I prefer to do my deep cleaning on my days off. Those days I detail vacuum, scrub the bathtub and floors, clear out the cobwebs in the corners of my ceilings,etc. The rest of the time I like to think my house is clean enough to be healthy but dirty enough to be happy! :D
