- Wedding: October 2018
I wanted to make this a poll but I wasn’t sure how to word the options, so just tell us, how clean do you keep your house? Is it clean all the time? When do you know it’s time to do a deep clean?
Fiance and I both work really long hours during the week, so sometimes cleaning gets a bit behind. I don’t think anything gross, sometimes well leave (rinsed) dishes in the sink, or an unfolded basket of laundry on the living room floor that well “get to” but usually don’t until the weekend.
On the weekends we always catch up on dishes, will usually go over hard floors with a swiffer, vaccuum the carpets (well run the Roomba 1-2x during the week), wipe down counters and clean our guest bathroom/powder room. Our master bathroom connected to our bedroom definitely doesn’t get as much attention as it should, I can’t stand a dirty toilet so that gets done on sight but there’s definitely clutter all over the sink (make up/razors/etc). Luckily only Fiance and I go in there.
Our bedroom is okay, we usually half make the bed and sometimes clothes will get picked up off the floor the day after to go into a basket.
Our guest room isn’t used much except for storage so it kind of looks ugly now due to all the wedding storage but not gross. The cat litter gets kept in there and scooped every other day and completely emptied 1x per week.
Our living room is probably our biggest problem area. We’ll often leave water cups on the end tables, cat toys on the floor, if we start a project or something it’s usually in the living room and the materials are generally left in there for several days. Not anything that would take more than 10 minutes of tidying, but still would be a bit embarrassing if someone came over unexpectedly.
When people come over, we usually clean the bathroom sink/toilet/sweep, clean the kitchen/wash the counters and the stove top, swiffer the floor and wipe the table etc, and obviously tidy up all the stuff in the living room. Sometimes we let the upstairs (master bed/bath/guest bed) go as there’s no reason for people to go upstairs.
So what about you bees? How clean is your house usually?
