    @sweetchiquita12:  I chose other. Like you, I don’t want to spend my free time (especially weekends) cleaning. I hired a cleaning lady and never looked back.

    @sweetchiquita12:  I voted other. People clean their house weekly? If we’re all being honest here, my boyfriend is usually the one who cleans.

    I live in a small apartment with a roommate, so my situation is a bit different than most. We both tidy up as needed during the week, ie doing dishes, wiping crud off the stove and counters, taking the garbage and recycling out. Then we do a big deep clean on an alternating basis (so we each only do the big clean every four weeks) every other week. I also do a big clean of my bedroom once a month before the exterminator comes, but I’m messy so other than that it’s a disaster area.

    @sweetchiquita12:  Our general rule of thumb is “clean enough that friends could come over unannounced — and they wouldn’t feel uncomfortable and I wouldn’t be embarrassed”. So we tidy throughout the week, keep the kitchen and bathroom nice, and then deep clean Saturday morning. We live in a small apartment so it doesn’t take long.

    @Benni:  I love this. It’s our rule too, although some weeks are better than others!

    OP, we do a big clean once a week on the weekend. We live in a tiny 64sqm house with 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and open plan kitchen/living so it doesn’t take more than an hour. We do the bathroom, give the kitchen an extra good scrub (although clean it regularly during the week after use), mop the hardwood floors, vacuum, pledge the furniture that needs it and generally tidy up. I do the washing over the weekend too, but more slowly. We are homebodies so usually are around the house.

    We have a lady who comes in too. We just don’t have time.

    @sweetchiquita12:  haha, I actually got my name from his online name! but his online name comes from the fact that his dad used to run the Pinesol plant. 😛

    @sweetchiquita12:  I usually do things all through the week (SAHM and there’s always something to clean!). Bed sheets get done every Tuesday and vaccuuming every Sunday, but laundry, bathroom and kitchen cleaning get done throughout the week- no set schedule.
