Ask your question
  • Vacuuming 2 to 3 times a week mop 2 times a week or as needed bathrooms wiped over daily and proper clean weekly windows when they look bad other bits as needed.


  • When the kids were home, I would spend one dsy a week cleaning the house. But it’s really a daily thing, there’s always something that needs doing. I’ve slacked off quite a bit now it’s just the 2 of us


  • I vaccum, mop and clean toilets once a week. I change all towels and sheets at the same time.
    However, usually vacuum and mop the kitchen floor every 2 days or so. My kids are messy


  • I try to do a little bit each day, so I have more time to relax on the weekend.


  • I do housework everyday as u have to…always good to have a clean house…


  • I do tidying up and washing each day and once upon a time I would do my bathrooms and floors all once a week, but now time gets away and it tends to role over a week.


  • I must be old school, I do general house work every day ex: dusting, moping floors, vacuuming etc. Once a week I change sheets on beds, scrub bathroom, shower screen, toilet and wash bathroom floor. Once a month window sills are cleaned and window runners, and windows cleaned. sometimes I cheat and the grandchildren dust daily for me and do some very very light house work.


  • I try to do a bit every day so it never gets to the point of looking like a tip. If my husband pitched in ever we’d have a very tidy house.


  • I try to thoroughly one room a day. I also sweep the kitchen/living area every morning. I do the washing when there is enough for a load. I have 4 laundry baskets that the dirty washing is sorted into – baby clothes, white and light colours, dark colours, and towels.


  • Somethings daily and a big clean once a week. Dishes are always rinsed and placed in the dish washer, washed after 8 at night. Clothes are washed and ironed every day. Beds made every morning and sheets changed once a week. I have a pet hate about using other peoples toilet and finding it grotty so I make sure when ever I use mine I give it a wipe with fresh toilet paper and some antibacterial hand sanitizer and give the bowl a squirt of toilet cleaner. I vacuum once a week unless it requires another clean. And by the way there are no littlies that live here any more though sometimes my biggies make just as much mess. lol.


  • Everyday I do house work. Washing and cleaning up never stops. Out doors the weeds grow so, so fast.


  • There are certain things I do daily and other things less frequent. I try to keep up with the dishes so they don’t pile up and dry up all crusty and dirty. Daily a quick wipe down of the kitchen cupboards, cooking plates, oven and fridge. I also do daily all the bathrooms, bathroom floors, toilets and sinks. We vacuum daily and I mop the floors early every morning before everybody wakes up. I keep the soap water from the floor for a quick mop from spills during the day. The rest of the housework I do less frequent.


  • I feel like I’m
    Constantly doing house hold chores! And just when you think your about finished you turn around and realise that your toddler has “helped” you out by undoing everything you thought you just achieved. Not to mention when your husband returns home and disturbs your beautiful just cleaned kitchen with some afternoon snack he prepared on the kitchen bench and then disappears to another room to get changed and leave his dirty work clothes on the floor beside the laundry basket…. that has a clear sign politely saying “dirty clothes”. I always here about these “fairies” coming to clean up the house but they must be scared of mine! :) gotta love that young family life. X


  • Either when I find time or more preferably when everyone is out of the house.


  • A little bit here and there everyday seems to keep things in order for daily use… eg washup straight away before it piles up and the plates dry out making it harder; wipe a spill on the floor before the whole floor needs a clean; bathroom basin before it goes grotty. etc. etc. and then 20 or 30 mins once a week for other chores keeps things going when minimal time is available… when there is more time I think you can loose yourself forever in getting everything perfect!
