I have a 21 month old, so I need to clean every single day.

I tidy and pick up, sweep, do dishes every day.

Weekly (usually weekends) DH and I do more serious cleaning: laundry, scrubbing, etc.

  I think I would almost rather do it in one day. Then, I can enjoy our whole house being clean and not feel like I’m always playing catch-up.

I would spread it out some, pick a room a day to tidy up and then maybe once a month pick a day to do a super deep clean.

Usually it’s a bit at a time and I’ll ask him to do stuff too, but sometimes I crack and do a massive 3 hour clean… once I get into my groove I don’t stop until it’s all done.

i prefer to do the bulk of the cleaning on one day. thats the two bedrooms and the bathroom

light cleaning – the kitchen surfaces get wiped down daily after cooking when i do the dishes. and i also clean all the floors daily (its sooooooo dusty here and we have white tiles). and i try to keep things tidy-ish and put things away as i go along

@Evie19:  I do not like this approach because by the time you clean the entire house the first thing you cleaned is already dirty.  I am a bit OCD when it comes to cleaning, but i vacuum 5-7 times a week.  I dust, clean bathrooms, and vacuum and mop the entire house top to bottom either on Friday evenings or Sunday mornings.  When I do this, I also clean the laungdry room and our windows.

Both. 

I clean the kitchen counters and do dishes every day of the week.  As well as picking up clutter. 

I do floors, bathrooms, dusting, etc once a week (on the weekend).  The bathroom the cats litter box is in I do twice a week with the more thorough cleaning on the weekend when I do the other once-a-week stuff. 

Every so often I do other things like cleaning the stove, dusting cabinet tops, etc.

@Evie19:  Everything changes in terms of cleaning when you have kids. I cannot handle the clutter…my child can completly detroy a clean house in about 15 minutes. haha. She’s forever lugging her toys all over the house, dropping crumbs, dropping her sippy cup and dripping milk all over.

Thus, there is a need for me to clean ever evening once she’s in bed 🙂

I only clean once a week. I’d rather get it all over with at once since cleaning is one of my most hated tasks.
