How much time do you spend cleaning a day?

I honestly only spend around 1 hour a day cleaning. My kids are all in school so the house pretty much stays clean. I do all my cleaning in the morning usually. On weekends I scrub sinks and do the bathroom, but that doesnt add much to my cleaning schedule.

How about you?

  • about the same as you, usually I end up cleaning one thing at a time, clean one toilet (5min), later dust the living room (10 min), etc... I don't really have the chance to clean the whole house at one time

  • pretty much the same as you..although, some days probably not even 30mins..because i keep it up continually. i pick things up and put-away as needed, it doesn't take much time to sort clean laundry and put it the machines do all the work!

  • I probably spend about an hour a day cleaning and usually not in one shot. I spend about 5-10 min cleaning at a time.

  • Not enough and too much. I work outside the home and I have a hard time keeping up.

  • I usually spend about 2 -3 hours a day cleaning. I'll pick a little while the kids are at school (unless I'm doing heavy cleaning (dusting, washing floors, etc....) but I do all the regular cleaning after dinner because that's when the house is at it's worst

  • My car is broken down so I am totally bored now. I have been rearranging junk drawers even.

  • Hours and hours of cleaning. I keep it straightened all the time. But I wash floors daily, clean sinks, toilets, sweep and vacuum. I don't every feel like there is a clean enough. I am sure I drive my little ones nuts.

  • Too much...I clean nights for a commercial cleaning company.
