how do you keep your house clean?

Mine I can clean top to bottom and the next day it is like I haven't cleaned in weeks. How do you clean your house and keep it clean? Do you clean the whole house everyday? Do you clean one room a day? Do you the whole house once a week? My cleaning day is every Sunday and then the rest of the week I just straighten up the house, but it isn't working to well. I have gotten rid of stuff we don't need or don't use and it doesn't work

  • Love the first answer, sorry you got a vote down, that person really doesn't know how to take a joke.

    & to answer the question, I clean about two hours daily.. But I have OCPD. So thats my own little issue. All my really heavy cleaning is down on Monday or Sunday..

    & I make my child clean up his own messes & help out around the house.

  • Give everyone jobs, don't take it all on yourself if you have able bodied people in your home that can help out!!

  • If you take it out, put it back, if you dirty it, clean it, if there is dust, wipe it down. Not always easy but this helps me to keep it in order pretty much.

  • I have a CLEANING day too, once a week where I do the deep cleaning, dusting, etc. and by the time that day gets here, you can tell it. I try to stay on top of most things, keep the kids stuff tidied and make them help by picking their things up as that seems to be most of the mess, do that daily so it doesn't pile up. I do laundry daily, sweep daily, dishes about every day, every other day(we have a dishwasher so when it's full, we run it). I deep cleaned Wednesday and right now things are still looking o.k other than toys. I did a load of laundry today and got it put away and ran the dishwasher and got those put away. I guess just tidy up as you go throughout your day. Good Luck!!
