{Deep Cleaning}

Monday, January 10, 2011
Does anyone else have the problem I do? I leave the house and work for a few days, come home, and it looks like five tornadoes have ripped through my house. There is about 5 days of laundry to do piled in the laundry room, the floors haven't been swept since I left, toys are scattered, dishes are piled in the sink, not to mention bathrooms haven't been cleaned ... ugh. Sometimes, just leaving the house is stressful thinking about it.

Since today is a snow day for most, I thought I would share with you my "deep cleaning" process. It's a chart that I use. I keep it in my cleaning bucket, and it goes through every room until the house is clean. Yep, this is how I am spending my snow day, in hopes that I can get it down now, and enjoy all the snow tomorrow :)

So here it is in all it's glory. I have customized this list a number of times depending on the house I live in, what areas to clean, etc. But this is what I use my my current house now. Feel free to print it off and use it too. I happen to have mine laminated so that I can check items off as I go. BTW: I usually do this every other Monday, and the rest of the days I just "clean up." I found that if I keep this up, then it's easier each time and cuts down on the time!

Happy Deep Cleaning!

Well, it’s best if they have been sanded, stained and then a good coat of poly sealant. I clean my floors by using a mixture of hot water, murphey's oil & pinesol. It's always worked for me! Oh, and my mother in law swears by it!
