GTKY - Cleaning

Since the PP seems like a lot of variances of "cleaning" so this might be a new one to do.  Also, include favorite brands or recipes for cleaners if you do natural or make your own! 

How often do you:

dust

vacuum

do dishes

wipe kitchen counters

laundry

change sheets

mop

clean toilets

clean windows (inside)

clean windowsills (inside) 

Do you clean a little at a time (like do all of one bathroom one day and the next do the other? etc.) or clean all at once?

Re: GTKY - Cleaning

  • How often do you:

    dust

    weekly 

    vacuum

    at least every other day (thank you inside shedding dog!) 

    do dishes

    every night 

    wipe kitchen counters

    every night 

    laundry

    usually every other day I have a load 

    change sheets

    every weekend we wash all sheets  

    mop

    about every 10 days or so 

    clean toilets

    once a week 

    clean windows (inside)

    eek, never - I hate to do it and we have blinds installed so they really aren't' bad 

    clean windowsills (inside) 

    every week I dust them 

    Do you clean a little at a time (like do all of one bathroom one day and the next do the other? etc.) or clean all at once?

    I would prefer to clean all at once.  I'd rather have a clean house than one clean room at a time - it would feel like that's all I'm doing

  • dust - I try to do it weekly, but at worst case once per month.

    vacuum - We don't have any carpets/rugs.

    do dishes - Nightly or EO night.

    wipe kitchen counters - Nightly

    laundry - A couple loads per week for towels, and DH's uniforms.  I wash my clothes once a month maybe and Skyler's every 10 days or so.

    change sheets - Weekly

    mop - Once or twice a month

    clean toilets - Weekly or biweekly depending on how busy we are.

    clean windows (inside) - I just did this 2 weeks ago, but it was my second time doing it since we moved in November.

    clean windowsills (inside) - Same as above.

    Do you clean a little at a time (like do all of one bathroom one day and the next do the other? etc.) or clean all at once? -

    I usually dust, clean bathrooms, change sheets, sweep and put on a load of laundry all at once.  If I'm focused I can do this all in less than an hour.  Then I get DH to mop.  Sometimes I will just sweep and mop on a random evening if it hasn't gotten done and the floors are gross.

  • I say vacuum, but that is our sweeping I guess.  We have tile everywhere except the boys rooms but we want to pull the carpet up and put down tile for allergies and if DS #2 has asthma which he is on the path to being diagnosed as he gets older we think.  So we use our shark vacuum and vacuum the tile.

    How often do you:

    dust:  Once a week if it is a good week.  

    vacuum:  The main two levels a few times a week.  The upstairs usually gets done once a week.  

    do dishes:  Every day

    wipe kitchen counters:  After every meal

    laundry:  At least one load per day.  We CD so I also wash diapers every other day.

    change sheets:  Once a week

    mop:  The kitchen gets done multiple times a week because Nolan has a habit of throwing food.  Everything else gets done once a week.

    clean toilets:  Once a week

    clean windows (inside):  I don't think I have ever done this :)

    clean windowsills (inside):  Once a week

    Do you clean a little at a time (like do all of one bathroom one day and the next do the other? etc.) or clean all at once?

    I try to clean all on one day, with the exception of picking up toys, dishes, laundry, the kitchen (gets done every night after I cook), and vacuuming/mopping the kitchen.  Some weeks it gets done, some it doesn't.  I always pick up before company though.

  • dust - Once a week

    vacuum - All floors, carpet and hard, at the very least twice a week. 

    do dishes - Two to three times a day. We make a lot of dishes. A lot.

    laundry - A couple of loads a day

    change sheets - Once a week

    mop - Every other week

    clean toilets - Once a week

    clean windows (inside) - When they look dirty from the dog nose prints and drool. 

    clean windowsills (inside) - When they look dirty.

    Do you clean a little at a time (like do all of one bathroom one day and the next do the other? etc.) or clean all at once?

    A little at a time.

  • How often do you:

    dust twice a week

    vacuum. Twice a week

    do dishes. Every night. I don't run the dishwasher if its not full but there are usually no dishes on the counter when I go to bed.

    wipe kitchen counters every night after I do the dishes

    laundry one load every week day.

    change sheets every 2 to 3 weeks

    mop once a week

    clean toilets once a week

    clean windows inside whenever they look dirty, maybe once a month

    clean windowsills inside same as windows

    Do you clean a little at a time like do all of one bathroom one day and the next do the other? etc. or clean all at once? I do a little bit each week day. I actually made a schedule last summer when I was still working so DH would know what needed done every day :: we worked opposite schedules so I didn't always know what he cleaned :: I've stuck to it even though I quit my job in September! The goal is to not have to clean on weekends so we can spend time together.
