Weekly Cleaning Routines 

Of course there are some jobs you don't need to do every day. That doesn't mean you have to save them up all for a mammoth cleaning blitz at the end of the week. Oh please, get a system or you'll be in one heck of a mess. Do a couple of these things along with your daily routine and you'll never spend a whole day cleaning again.

  1. Change the bedlinen (twice weekly is best in hot weather)
  2. Change bath and shower towels two or three times weekly.
  3. Vacuum carpets and floors.
  4. Wash or mop all hard floors.
  5. Dust the surfaces (if you're pressed for time, dusting will always wait - dust doesn't smell but toilets always do).
  6. Wipe finger prints from door handles and light switches (do this as you go round, it only takes a second and keeps germs away).
  7. Thoroughly clean the bathroom: toilet, sink, shower, tiles, toothbrush holders, mirrors and floor.
  8. Attend to the areas of the kitchen not covered by daily routines: wipe cupboard doors, splashbacks, oven, microwave, fridge, windows, and rinse and disinfect rubbish bins.
  9. Iron the laundry.
