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
Four weeks ago, I shared how I clean my bathrooms, three weeks ago, I shared how I dust my home, two weeks ago, I shared how I vacuum, last week, I shared how I wash my floors, and today I’m sharing what a “catch-all” day means and how I wash my sheets.
(Friday) Catch-All Day Tasks
Friday is catch-all day! It’s when I catch up on any tasks that I wasn’t able to complete during the week and straighten up our home for the weekend. Here’s a list of cleaning tasks that I may complete (depending on what’s needed) on Fridays:
- Complete any tasks I didn’t complete Monday-Thursday
- Wipe down kitchen
- Spot clean bathrooms
- Clean out refrigerator
- Fold and put away laundry
- Sort mail
- Straighten up house
I usually spend only 10 minutes or less on Friday cleaning tasks!
(Saturday) How I Wash My Sheets
- Strip bed immediately after waking up
- Put sheets in washer using the following settings: Bright Whites, Hot Water, Soak
- Dry sheets
- Put them back on bed
Note: I only have one pair of sheets for each bed. This wasn’t intentional but saves on storage space, and it also forces me to wash, dry, and re-make our bed in one day when I wash them. Plus, nothing beats climbing into bed with freshly washed sheets!
Another note: I only wash our guest room sheets after we have guests. If there’s a long span of time between one guest and another, I’ll often re-wash the pillowcases or the sheets so they’re fresh.
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. I’m not sharing a video this week because it would be so short that it’d be a waste of time for me to film it and a waste of time for you to watch it! 😉
