Do you want to clean your house, but don't know where to start? Our Cleaning Checklist gives you a guideline on what to clean in each room of the house. Use it to make a plan of what you still need to clean that week or give it to your kids to help them remind them of their chores.
    Rinsing dishes right after use makes it easy to remove food.
    Move appliances to remove dust or crumbs from behind them.
    Run garbage disposal to clean it out.
    Always wipe up spills as soon as they happen.
    This will reduce the need for a full mop job to once per week.
    Check your refrigerator daily and use up leftovers before they spoil.
    Take food out of the freezer that will need time to thaw.
    This will allow them to dry and keep them fresh longer.
    Rinse sink right away after brushing teeth.
    Hang an automatic shower sprayer or use a hand-held spray to keep soap scum from building up on shower walls.
    Avoid clutter on your counters. Put everything away after use.
    Replace empty rolls.
    Keep your bathroom waste basket lined with a small bag to make it convenient to empty.
    Pay attention to corners and edges.
    Vacuuming will be done once per week.
    A neat bed makes your entire room look better.
    Keep it near where you undress.
    A hook or hanger outside your closet will make it easy to assemble your outfit the night before.
    If you have finished a book, put it in a bag to return to library or place back on your bookshelf.
    Have baskets or boxes to store small items.
    Throw out junk, file or pay bills, and put magazines in rack.
    Wash out their bowls when they finish eating.
    This should be done twice per day if you have multiple cats.
    Removing loose hair will keep it off your furniture and carpets.
    Check with a finger to determine if plants need water.
    Checking laundry each day will keep you from being overwhelmed with a mountain of laundry on the weekend.
    Check backpacks of school-age children; take care of any paperwork that must return to school.
    Rotating through your rooms will keep dust from building up.
    Anything that will take less than 10 seconds to complete should be done right away.
    It will immediately make your living room look neater.
    When bringing home groceries or other merchandise, put everything away, then dispose of bags, or use to line trash containers.

Few people look forward to housework, but a clean, tidy home makes life much more pleasant. But you don’t have to work hours at a time to keep your house in order. Spending just 45 minutes a day to complete this entire list adds up to a big difference by the end of the week. Establish a daily routine of basic cleaning, make it a habit, and you will be amazed at how much easier it is to keep your house looking good.


  • Larger jobs, such as thorough bathroom cleaning, vacuuming and mopping, should be performed weekly.
  • Get your family involved. All adults and children should have daily assigned tasks.
  • Work your way through the daily cleaning checklist in the same order and at the same time each day. This will help make it a habit, and get it done more quickly.
  • Focus each day on clutter hot spots to prevent them from becoming overwhelming.
  • Keep a mat on the outside and inside of entries to your home. This will greatly reduce the dust and debris tracked inside.
  • Don't allow clutter to build up in your home, or maintain extensive collections of items that will require dusting.
