Handy: a helpful cleaning checklist for a spotless home

A list for daily, weekly and monthly cleaning in and around your home!

It is important to keep your home clean. But we all know that you don’t have to clean everything every week. So, wouldn’t it be helpful to have a list of the things that you should clean every day, week, month or even less frequent? With this list, you’ll know exactly what to clean and when to clean it, without overdoing it!
Every day
Some things need to be cleaned every day. It might seem like a lot of work but if you want to keep your home clean, this list will help you achieve that goal! Things that you should do every day to make sure your home stays spotless:

Do the dishes
Take out the trash (especially if it has food waste in it)
Wipe down the kitchen counters and bathroom counters
Make the bed
Put all things back in place like toys, loose papers and other objects that were used during the day.
Weekly
With the daily cleaning tasks, you have already made your home look a lot more organized! There are some things that don’t have to be done daily but should be cleaned weekly. Those tasks are listed below:

Vacuum your floors and mop them too
Scrub the toilet, kitchen and bathroom
Wipe down mirrors, countertops and appliances in your home
Change your sheets and towels
Dust the hard surfaces in your home
Toss out food that is past it’s ‘best before date’
Monthly
Luckily, there are things in your home that don’t need as much cleaning. And that means less work for you to keep your home squeaky clean! These things should be cleaned monthly:

Clean your trashcans
Clean the stove and microwave
Clean your doorknobs and other things that are touched frequently
Dust hard-to-reach places in your home
Wipe down the cabinets in your kitchen
Clean less frequently
Some things don’t have to be cleaned daily, weekly or monthly. Some things don’t even have to be cleaned every season. Things that could be cleaned less frequently (but at least once or twice a year) are:

Curtains, blinds and shades
Mattress
Rugs
Windows
Freezer and fridge
Pillows, comforters and other decorative items on your bed
Hood filter
Gutters
Dryer duct
If you stick to this cleaning checklist, you’ll keep your home organized, clean and comfortable to live in without feeling like you’re cleaning 24/7!
