Daily Quick Clean

What makes each of these quick?  Have in each area wipes, or paper towels with cleaning spray readily available.  Remember this is a quick clean not a deep clean.  The deep clean will happen later.  Add each one to your routine for a whole month before adding the next one.  This will keep you from feeling overwhelmed.


Cleaning Sink and Countertops 

  • After meals and before bedtime, take just a few minutes to wipe down the kitchen sink and countertops.

  • Unload dishwasher before breakfast (or before each meal if you run if multiple times a day), then the family can load dirty dishes in the dishwasher instead of stacking them in the sink until it's full again.

Freshen Bathroom

  • After showering, use bath towel to wipe down shower, this keeps the soap scum and water spots from building up.

  • After brushing teeth and putting on make-up, wipe bathroom sink, faucets and countertops.

  • After dressing, swish the inside (keep a squirt of cleaner in the brush holder) and wipe down the outside of the toilet.

Quick Pick-up

  • Before your husband gets home and before bedtime, take a few minutes to pick things up and put them back in their place.

Get up, make-it

  • When you first get out of bed in the morning, make it.

Quick Sweep

  • After mealtimes, it's a good idea to quickly sweep the eating area. 

  • Vacuum the high traffic areas before your husband comes home for the evening.
