How do you keep your house clean? How often do YOU clean?

Ugh, my husband and I both have full time jobs. We don't even have kids, but it seems like our house is ALWAYS a landfill!!! I try to clean on weekends, and a little during the week. But heck, how much of your life do you have to spend cleaning?! How often do you clean? What do you do? How do you KEEP the house clean? Seriously, do I have to clean the entire house every day? If I do, I will be getting a maid here pretty soon. Eff.

I try to keep up on keeping things put away all the time, then on the weekends all I have to do is vacuum and sweep/mop, and dust. I also do laundry about every other day, even if it's just a load or 2, so it doesn't pile out of control and I have to spend all day doing it.

First declutter what you don't need. Then try to organise a programme for cleaning. If you do a bit each day you will keep on top of it. Every week try to find time to deep clean a certain room. This will ensure that it doesn't get messy. Try to deal with mail as soon as you get it.

I try to "clean as I go"- wipe counters while I'm cooking to keep them clean, toss mail into piles (or the garbage) while I'm on the phone, spray the shower with foaming gunk, if I'm the last one to shower in the pm. That kind of thing really adds up at the end of the week, and is really one minor thing at a time... More

The biggest dirt factor in your house is what you bring in from outside. Control that and keeping the house clean becomes much easier. We NEVER wear shoes in the house. Shoes are the single biggest source of dirt. We keep slippers inside the door and a shoe stand. Besides the cleanliness there's nothing more comforting... More
