Cleaning is not what weekend dreams are made of. Especially if your weekdays are full of work and other obligational activities, your weekend should be spent enjoying your time, relaxing in your home, not fussing over it. Cleaning-free weekends are do-able by splitting your cleaning routine into 15-minute chunks each day. So here is a day-by-day routine that leaves your house ready to embrace by the time Friday evening rolls around...
Living room & hallway: Pick up items from the floor, dust shelves and surfaces, and hoover the floors and rugs.
Bathrooms: Put things away in drawers, dust and polish the mirrors, clean the toilets and scrub the sink and bathtub.
Bedrooms: Sort out that chair that is pile high with clothes, put other necessities away, dust your bedside tables, make the bed and hoover the floor.
Kitchen: Wipe down appliances, clean the backsplash and counters, wipe down any cabinet fronts, clear the fridge of any out-of-date foods, and mop and hoover the floor.
Attention: This could involve cleaning something you saw during the week that needs a little bit more attention. Or maybe you'd like to rearrange your wardrobe, restyle your bookshelf or replenish your bathroom goodies! Finally, treat yourself to a nice glass of wine and enjoy your weekend.
