Are you looking for a way to keep track of what to clean and when to clean it? I’m an engineer by training and I like to plan and organize. One thing that I like to write out and keep track of is cleaning schedules. My daily cleaning schedule and weekly cleaning schedule keeps me accountable for some regular household cleaning and maintenance.
So if you also like to have things written out, take a look at my lists below on items that need to be cleaned on a daily basis and a weekly basis. Happy Cleaning!
