Happy Monday – start your week off on the right foot by getting some cleaning out of the way. My printable cleaning schedule has me tacking my favorite (sarcasm) chore bright and early Monday.
Task: Clean counters, sinks and mirrors
Materials: Homemade cleaners
Task: Clean toilets
Materials: Toilet brush
Task: Wipe down tubs/showers
Task: Sweep and mop floors
Task: Wash bath rugs
Pro tip: If you haven’t replaced your bath mat since oh, I don’t know, college consider buying a new bath rug.
Task: Clean out drawers and cabinets
Pro tip: If there’s something you don’t need or that is expired get rid of it! If your drawers seem like a bottomless pit look for drawer organizers to neaten things up.
Room: Kitchen and Dining Room
Follow Tuesday’s printable cleaning schedule and your kitchen and dining room will be clean enough to eat off of… wait…
Task: Clean sink and counters
Task: Clean stove (cooktop)

Task: Clean small appliances (ex. coffee pot and toaster)
Pro Tip: Have a Keurig? Here’s how to descale a Keurig.
Task: Wipe out the microwave
Task: Wipe out the fridge
Task: Wipe down the cabinets
Pro tip: You can use an old t-shirt for this but sometimes a duster is nice as well
Task: Clean cycle the dishwasher
Task: Deep clean the fridge and freezer
Pro Tip: Get rid of spoiled food at this time. You can also make an inventory, if you will, of what there is to eat and keep it taped to the front of the fridge for the next time someone inevitably tells you there’s nothing to eat and to help with meal planning.
Task: Organize cupboards and pantry
Materials: Cabinet organizers
Task: Clean the oven
