How often do you clean your bathroom(s)?

With normal housework being done daily, I was just curious what other Moms out there do about the other cleaning -- do you have a routine that works -- or do you do it on the fly -- when you can??? Unfortunately, dusting and window cleaning is not tops on my list unless there's a party...I'm pretty good about the others. I try to do the sheets once a week (however, sometimes I surpass that) and the bathrooms about every week, if even just a touch up with scrubbing bubbles. How about you?

  • Changing Sheets - Twice a week, I personally hate the idea of sleeping on dirty sheets.

    Clean the Bathrooms - I do a FULL Cleaning top to bottom once a week, usually on the weekend. But I do touch ups/spot cleaning daily.

    Dusting - I dust every other day as needed.

    Cleaning Windows - I do this during the weekend. But I will do spot cleaning as needed daily if I see smudges or if the window looks dirty.

  • sheets- around every two weeks i try to wash them once a week but sometimes i just get lazy

    bathrooms- a good cleaning once a week and i pick up as i go

    Dusting- Once every week ( being 30 weeks pregnant it gets kind of hard but i used to do it like every other day)

    Windows- Like never. I dunno why i just never think to do it and plus you cant see my windows since i have blinds and cutrtains up.

    Bedrooms- pick up daily along with the rest of the house and i do atleast a load of laundry a day to keep up.

  • Sheets: Once per week, sometimes twice if needed.
    Bathrooms: I wipe them up every day, but I do a complete clean once per week.
    Dusting: Every other day.
    Windows: Usually once per week.

    I think a big one is the bathroom, that is an area that can get VERY dirty VERY quickly. One thing I try to do is that when I get out of the shower I use a sponge (that I keep in the 'medicine cabinet') to wipe up the walls and the tub basin while they're still wet. I also spray vinegar on the grout to keep it clean.

  • I wash the sheets on the bed at least once a week, if not more, or as needed. Bathrooms get done twice a week, and windows are done once a month. I hate dusting, so I dont do it unless there is company coming over. LOL

  • I try to do everything every week... the windows though are a different story.. I get to them about once every month or so... My motto is, if I can't see it.. It don't exist... (EX: Dust on top of the fridge)

  • I try to do things once a week (except the windows).
    I found that when I tried to "clean the house" or "do the laundry", it was too overwhelming. Now, I clean one thing a day and do one load of laundry a day - today it's bathrooms and the towels. Another day might be vacuuming, cleaning the kitchen, doing the baby's clothes, washing all the jeans, etc.

  • I change our sheets like every other week. I rarely dust or clean the windows... but I do clean the bathroom when it's dirty.
