Creating a Cleaning Routine

To help you establish your own cleaning routine, I have now published a new planner with checklist. You can now edit my routine to suit you and your commitments. My cleaning routine is based on the principle of little but often! I complete a room/area a day and add on monthly &/ quarterly tasks when I have the time do to so. The plan also includes two catch up days which gives you additional time to catch up on any days you may have missed. Follow the steps below to get your cleaning routine organised!

To get started you will need to print off your monthly cleaning routine AND checklist (you can download by clicking here).

Choose and write in your specified areas/rooms for each day, I do mine as follows:

Monday: Bathroom

Tuesday: Living Area(s)

Wednesday: Bedroom(s)

Thursday: Kitchen

Friday: Flooring

Saturday: Catch up day

Sunday: Catch up day

For my specified rooms I spend 15-20 mins cleaning, if done weekly you will be surprised at how quick it can be! Refer to your cleaning checklist for your weekly tasks. I like to use my days off as my catch up days where I can do anything I’ve missed, some monthly or quarterly tasks or have a day off the housework!

To try and prevent my cleaning time from exceeding 20 mins on my daily room/area, I complete more time consuming tasks such as cleaning the oven, on a catch up day. I have included an example of my routine so you can see how I plan to complete my weekly routine this month. It includes my first week of planned tasks:
