My Weekly Cleaning Routine
via Clean Mama, with one change
- Monday: clean bathrooms + wash towels
- Tuesday: dust
- Wednesday: vacuum
- Thursday: wash floors
- Friday: catch-all day
- Saturday: wash sheets
I plan on sharing a post for the rest of the days of my cleaning routine over the next two Thursdays (I’ll combine Friday and Saturday into one post); two weeks ago, I shared how I clean my bathrooms, last week, I shared how I dust my home, and today, I’m sharing how I vacuum.
My So-Easy-It’s-Dumb Vacuuming Routine
Are you ready for this?
- Move all items off floor
- Vacuum (I use and love the Bissell OnePass–$75, affiliate link)
- Replace items
Pro tip: Become a no-shoes household. This is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, but didn’t implement until recently. Instead of making a big announcement or hanging a sign (though I’d love a sign like this one), I simply started taking my own shoes off and leaving them by the door on our tile landing. Human behavior is so funny–now everyone who enters our home automatically removes their shoes too! No shoes tracking in dirt, debris, and who-knows-what-else means less cleaning, and a happier, healthier home for us. If you’re on the fence, try it! Start leaving your shoes by your front door and watch in awe and wonder as your family members, roommates, or guests begin to do the same! 😉
I realize this isn’t thrilling or life-changing, but my hope is to inspire you to find a cleaning routine or rhythm that suits you so that your home can feel like a sanctuary to you, the way mine does for me. In the video below, instead of discussing how to vacuum (because, obviously), I largely discuss why this new cleaning routine works so well for us and how it’s changed the way we interact with our home.
For more details, and to watch my vacuuming routine in action, you can watch me dust my home below or on YouTube here.
