This past weekend we did round 1 of spring cleaning. We amassed 7 garbage bags worth of “I didn’t even know I still had this” kind of stuff. It was a lot of work, and hard, and the music had to be turned up extra loud, but we did it.
What is your cleaning life like? Do you, you and your mate, or mates share house cleaning duties? Do you have additional outside help? A chore chart?
We’re sort of ad hoc when it comes to cleaning at our house. I’d like to say we do a thorough cleaning every Sunday, but that’s just not true. Sometimes it is more appealing to not go hands and knees with a spray bottle of bleach. That said, sometimes the urge to clean strikes at the oddest time, like 8:30 on Saturday morning. Mark is still nursing a cup of coffee and I am reorganizing cabinets. That might be my version of crazy.
That said, luckily we’re both clean and we’re usually fairly neat. We’re not big collectors of stuff and so we like to keep the piles to a minimum and the trash moving out the door. In fact, Wednesday is Mark’s favorite day of the week, it has it’s own song, “Trash day, trash day, best of the week…”
I think in an ideal scenario I’d be a homemade cleaning products type of gal, with a daily routine to help not only maintain but also extend the life and cleanliness of my house. But that’s the ideal.
How often and how diligently do you clean your humble abode?
