I also pretty much do a wash load everyday. This means that it never gets too out of control. Having 2 dogs and 2 children, I need to hoover most days too but if we have been out all day, then I wont bother.
I'll share my cleaning routine but I'll also point out that Jackson is at preschool all day Monday and Wednesdays, so I try to make the most of Florence's naps, hence why I have more things to do on those days:
Hoover whole house
Mop whole house
Bedrooms - General tidy, dust and change beds
Ironing - I never do this each week (I do the bare minimum when it comes to ironing and only do it when there is quite a bit built up).
Kitchen - Clean sides, empty toaster, sink and wipe down the fridge
Entrance hall and stairs
Clean dog bed
Focus areas are what I do on a Monday, which is when go more thoroughly than I do on a weekly clean:
Wk 1- Garden- This would involve sweeping up the leaves, sorting the flower pots and having a general tidy up.
Wk 2- Cupboards/Airing cupboard - I declutter and sort out the 2 big cupboards upstairs.
Wk 3- Master Bedroom - I clean under the bed, sort through the wardrobe for stuff to donate to Charity and I also deep clean the windows.
Wk 4- Entrance hall and stairs - We keep our washing machine and tumble drier there so I will deep clean them and also clean the skirting boards up the stairs.
Wk 5- Kids Room- Very similar to the master bedroom, declutter and deep clean.
Wk 6- Bathroom - I would clean all the tiles and sort out the cupboards. A general deep clean.
Wk 7- Living Room- sorting through any of the cupboards. We also keep the children's toys here so I would do a quick sort through.
Wk 8- Kitchen- I would empty and deep clean the fridge and pick a couple of cupboards to go through.
When writing this, it seems like a lot but when you do it so often, it really doesn't take long and it's such a good feeling when you have a clean and minimal house (whatever minimal means to you)!
How do you fit it all in? I have had a cleaner in the past and am definitely thinking about it again when baby number 3 comes.
