INSTRUCTIONS

BEDROOM
6 MINUTES PER BEDROOM

Strip linens and remake beds.

Clear all clutter, and if you’re in a real hurry gather clutter in a spare basket or bin for later organization and tuck out of sight in a closet.

Wipe down furniture with a dusting spray and microfiber cloth, working top to bottom.

BATHROOMS
7 MINUTES PER BATHROOM

I like to clean all of my bathrooms at once-make a quick trip around all the bathrooms in the house to clear counters and spray counters and tubs with cleaner, allow to sit while you clean toilets and wipe down the outer toilet surface.

Go back and wipe down counters and rinse tub then clean mirrors.

Come back to clean the floors when cleaning the kitchen floor.

LIVING/DINING ROOM
7 MINUTES

Clear all clutter, (use the basket method if needed)

Starting in one corner of the room and working around dust all surfaces top to bottom. (If you have blinds and/or ceiling fans, dust those first.)

KITCHEN
12 MINUTES

Load all dirty dishes in the dishwasher and fill the sink with hot soapy water.
If your stove top has removable burner pieces that need to be cleaned, place in water as well.
Clear counters. (keep on using that basket!!)
Using the hot soapy water, wipe down cabinets, counters and other surfaces again working top to bottom.
Wipe down appliances.
Finish cleaning any stove pieces and replace.

FLOORS
15 MINUTES WHOLE HOUSE

Vacuum carpeted rooms work your way backwards out of the room, moving quickly and without too much overlap to save time. Or if you have time, because you are a cleaning ninja, make some cute vacuum lines to show some sophistication.

Vacuum, don’t sweep, hard floors-use an attachment to get corners where dust and pet hair can accumulate.

Steam mops or Hardwood Floor Cleaners also make cleaning hard surfaces much faster than traditional mops, so I highly recommend investing in one of those to keep your cleaning quick!

NOTES
Always clean from top to bottom so dirt and dust falls on uncleaned areas.

Clean floors as the last step after all other cleaning is finished.
