  • My kids are adults, only me and the hubby here. I have wood floors, Im always dragging the Vac out to get up the dust and I clean usually 2 times a week or whenever needed, even if it's everyday. Im a clean freak to.

  • Not as often as I should. It's only my roommate & I living here and we don't have that much STUFF between us, so it doesn't often get that messy. I put off cleaning the little messes until they're bigger messes and then the job just seems intimidating.
    Thinking I should turn on some music, wash some dishes and get something cleaned up...

  • everyday. i do the dishes sweep the floors and pick up the dirty laundry maybe throw in a load or two and pick up shoes and toys. its an on going thing. but good news is my dd 4 asked for and allowance and agreed to starting chores. so we made up a chart and he looks forward to doing it all everyday. so it helps a bit. the only thing i dread is doing the dishes. blah.

  • I clean everyday sometimes all day. I have 4 children....3 live with me the other one is in and out. If I go one day without cleaning it looks like I haven't done anything in a month...I have my routine I still have time to get together with friends or play with the kids without feeling guilty when someone walks in.

  • When the kids were little, I cleaned constantly with one day dedicated to the top and bottom of the house being scrubbed. Now that they're older, I hire in for the bathrooms and they're scrubbed every other week, and I dust/vacuum the house completely once a week, with touch ups in between as needed (I have a dog). I touch up a little more if having guests.
