Basic Cleaning Schedule – Daily Cleaning


This is a guide to be used and tailored to work for you. This will be a small series with a printable on the last article.  Here is part 2 and part 3.

The goal of the Daily Cleaning is to eventually come to a place where your daily pick up is a 15-30 minute breeze (no more than 1 hour). This will help you to reduce and sort through the clutter and to help keep things in their place so that you can be organized to an extent that works for you.

Remember that organization looks different for various people due to various needs, tics, and preferences.

Being organized is not about being perfect. It’s about making things easier, more efficient, and less stressful for YOU  by establishing structure and boundaries for yourself. So let’s start with the basics

So let’s start with the basics. Here I am providing a template based on singles and partnerships with no children in a one bedroom. This is the base that you build on and it should be fairly easy to do. If you need assistance, drop us a message.

*There are  2 ways to do this. 1) Go around with a small basket for each room and place misplace items in the basket to sort into the proper place during the weekly deep clean. 2) Work on efficient and quick ways to put away your clutter. The second option will take more time and trial and error. Let these be your only two or part of your only a few options.

Quick clean note

In our house, we use lots of disinfectant wipes. That makes wipe downs easier, but it can be costly and not environmentally compassionate.

The solution:

DIY Reusable wipes

Supplies:

  • Minimum of 34 oz  airtight container or jar
  • Minimum of 15 clothes or wash clothes.
  • Minimum of 32 oz of preferred disinfectant cleaner. Suggested: Alcohol or white vinegar.
  • Optional: Scissors, scrap cloth, old t-shirts

Method:

  1. If you have not pre-purchased wash clothes, use scrap fabric and old t-shirts to cut wipe like stripes of cloth.-
  2. Stuff the cloth into the jar until full, not overflowing. Remember we will need to add liquid to it.
  3. Pour liquid over cloth until covered. Allow to sit to completely saturate the cloth.
  4.  After the cloth is saturated, add liquid until the container is full.
  5. Close the lid and you are done with your reusable wipes. As you use the wipes set them aside to dry and add to your weekly whites laundry cycle, then re-stuff the jar.
