Make a List
Before you get started with a cleaning plan, you need to figure out what constitutes a “clean house” to you and your family. Do you need to vacuum every day, once a week, twice a week? How often do you need the bathrooms cleaned? And what are the bigger chores you want to do less frequently – wiping baseboards, steaming upholstered furniture, sweeping the garage? Make a list of what you want to do weekly, monthly, less-than-monthly, and daily, and then print out a calendar that you can all use as a reference.
