Do you clean every day, or just when it's noticeably dirty?

My mom vacuums daily. I only dust when I see dust, vacuum when there's something to vacuum up, and only clean bathrooms once a week (just cause I know there have to be germs in there, even if I can't see a mess)...

  • I clean constantly and it is always visibly dirty anyway- I should just throw in the towel! I apparently have messy individuals in my house.

  • When I was younger, in my 20's I was a clean freak but now in my 40's I have realized that I am more content with the lived in look rather then the sterile look.

  • I have a cleaning schedule. So a little everyday, so everything stays clean and laundry done.

  • I find it hard to find time to clean. I have 4 kids and am constantly picking up after them, cooking and various other things with them that leaves little time for cleaning. If there is a mom out there who can tell me how I can still spend time with them and keep my house spotless PLEASE let me know.
    That being said I clean when it's absolutely necessary. Today is one of those days. The kids are up from naps now, except the baby and DH is going to take everyone outside and make sure they are so busy that I can get things done in the house. My floors need to be vacuumed every day and I do bathrooms as needed or every other weekish. They will get a spot cleaning as needed but when I clean them they are throughly cleaned.

  • When it's dirty I clean it. Usually when I clean, I clean everything because by the time I get time to clean everything is dirty.

  • A toy on the living room floor is "noticeably dirty" to me, so I clean everyday. Maybe not the whole house top to bottom, but at least maintenence cleaning sich as clearing the table and vacuuming.
