I try to clean the whole house once a week, when company is coming, or as needed.
I start with the kitchen and work my way out. Bathrooms are always pretty much last. I HATE cleaning the shower so I try to put it off for as long as possible.
Kitchen: I clean all the dishes in the sink, and then scrub out the sink with Comet and a scrubbie. Next I clean the counter tops, normally with Lysol kitchen cleaner and a sponge. Floors are last so if some crumbs get on the floor–no biggie. I water all the plants in the kitchen and clean them up and pull off dead leaves, etc. Next I clean the ceramic/glass/whatever it is stove top. I take a razor blade and scrape off any crusty gunk, then use a sponge that is damp with hot/warm water, use some ceramic stove top cleaner, rub that in, and wipe off. Lastly I’ll wipe off a few other things with my Lysol like the fridge and fronts of the dishwasher and stove.
Living Room: I pick up any thing off the floor like dog toys, etc. Wipe down the leather couches with a damp sponge. Then I grab a rag and some furniture cleaner and wipe down the fish tank stand, window sills, side table, coffee table, and then move to the dining room and wipe down those window sills, dining room table, and china hutch. Again, I haven’t done anything with the floors so I don’t worry if some dust bunnies make their way to the carpet/pergo floor.
Floors: Next I vaccuum. I use the shop vac to go down the hallway and get any dog toy remnants, etc, then I use it around the kitchen, dining room, and bedroom pergo flooring and then the bathroom and laundry room tiles. Next I use the regular vaccuum to go over the living room, and guest bedroom carpeting. Mopping is last.
Bathrooms: I hate cleaning these. I start with the guest bath that never gets used. Comet out the sink with a sponge, windex the mirror, and Lysol the counter tops and toilet. I comet the inside toilet bowl and scrub it with a toilet brush. I clean the shower as needed but since it never gets used I normally just rinse out the dust from it.
Master bath: I do the same as above only I start by using Scrubbing Bubbles shower gel cleaner and spray the whole stand up shower and let that sit while I clean the toilet, mirror, counter tops, etc. When I’m done with that I normally undress, and grab my scrubbie sponge and scrub the crap out of the shower. Shower germs kind of freak me out so I need to get fully involved in my scrubbing. My FI works at a shop so the shower walls always get greasy grimey finger prints in various places and I dunno… it gets ugly in there. I finish cleaning it and shower myself.
Lastly: Mopping. I fill the kitchen sink with hot water and some pergo floor cleaner. I sunk my mop in and start with the farthest part of the flooring (master bedroom) and work my way back to the kitchen, going back to the sink several times in between to rinse out my mop.
That’s pretty much it!
