I’ve got cleaning on the brain and desperately need to pick yours.

  • How often do you clean?
  • How often do you wash your sheets?
  • What is the one thing you always forget it clean?
  • What is the most important thing to always clean?
  • How do you manage hardwood floors? How often should you mop them?
  • What natural cleaning supplies are the best?
  • Do you/ can you make your cleaning supplies? And how?

Help. Help. Help!

Please and thank you.

* I clean the kitchen about twice a day….the bathroom once a week (but sometimes twice a week if it needs it)…whole house once a week.

* Sheets are once a week, but pillowcases are sometimes a couple times a week, we have a couple droolers here!!! LOL

* Most forgotten thing to clean is ceiling fans, and light fixtures that are high up….(wouldn’t be so high up for someone a little taller….lol). Oh…..and the stove hood/vent.

* not so sure about “most important” but definitely “most often” in my house is the countertops, sink, stove, table, and fridge. Basically anywhere food would possibly be touching. And the toothbrush holder…..can’t stand to put my toothbrush back in a holder that looks yucky.

* Don’t have hardwood, but we have laminate (kinda similar)….I sweep once or twice a week, (aside from kitchen and entrance which needs it more) and dust mop a couple times a week (with pledge….but you’de have to see what would be safe for real wood). I seriously only mop about once a month….I spot mop way more often when it needs it.

* Not sure if you mean store-bought natural…but if you mean “natural”-natural….the best things to always have on hand are lemon juice, white vinegar, and baking soda.

*you can make your own cleaning supplies for seriously almost everything….(if not definitely everything). white vinegar and water mix for windex, baking soda instead of comet (for an abrasive scrub)…non-dilluted white vinegar (or lemon juice) for cleaning toilets, tubs and sinks…..and on and on. And of course….homemade laundry soap!

I second the ceiling fans as the most often forgotten, which shouldn’t be problem unless your dear brother comes over when you have a houseful of company and throws something up that hits the fan and laughs at all the dust falling down…
