How to keep our home clean every day?

Have you ever thought about how often you should clean everything in your home? Use this chart to keep track of what you need to do to keep your home clean throughout the year.

A clean home doesn't just happen; it takes care and effort every day. That doesn't mean you have to keep cleaning all the time to be clean. It's more about knowing how often to clean everything in your home so that you can stay ahead of the dirt. It's easier to clean regularly than to wait until something looks dirty or is falling apart. So, keep reading to learn what you need to clean every day, week, or month and what you only need to clean once or twice a year.

Routine cleaning duties

  • Some things must be cleaned every day to avoid getting bugs in the house or getting sick. Keeping the kitchen and bathroom clean can help stop this from happening. But don't make things harder than they need to be. You don't have to get rid of everything on a surface before spraying it with cleaner and wiping it down. All you need is a cleaning wipe or some warm, soapy water.

• Make bed

• Clean the table in the kitchen.

• Wash the dirty dishes.

• Clean the counters in the kitchen.

• Wash your coffee machine.

• Disinfect kitchen sink

• Wipe fresh oven spills

• Clean the kitchen sponge in the microwave.

• Open the windows so air can come in (5 minutes is enough)

Change the dishcloths and towels.

Clean up the kitchen trash and change the hand towels in the bathroom.

• Clean the bathroom faucets.

• Clean the seat and handle of the toilet.

Weekly Cleaning Tasks

Every day, wipe down the counters and faucets to keep your home clean and keep pests away. However, this doesn't replace a deeper cleaning once a week. The kitchen and bathroom need to be cleaned once a week to get rid of bacteria. You should change your bedsheets every week to get rid of dust mites and wash your makeup brushes to get rid of dead skin cells, bacteria, and oils.

When you clean once a week, you should move things off surfaces before you spray, scrub, dust, and polish. If you know you can clean well, follow the list below.
