I have always bought new shower curtain liners every couple of months when they start to get nasty. There’s nothing else to do about it right? Wrong! They are washable! In the washing machine! I new you could scrub them by hand but who really wants to do that?
I have 2.5 bathrooms in my house and I always dread cleaning them but I hate dirty bathrooms even more! So, I thoroughly clean all my bathrooms every Wednesday in under 20 minutes and then just pick up or wipe down surfaces as needed throughout the week. Since I am not a fan of cleaning the bathrooms, I kind of made it a game that I play with myself where I race to get it done as quickly as possible. My best time was 11 minutes but the bathrooms weren’t very dirty that week.
No one told me before I bought my front loading washer how bad they stink! I have tried several ways of cleaning my washer and this is the only way that keeps it smelling fresh for longer than a couple loads. I leave the door open like the owners manual says to (even though the door is always in the way when it’s open and drives me crazy!) and I occasionally wipe down the door and rubber piece. Okay, so those are supposed to be wiped down after every load so maybe that is part of my problem. Who really has time to clean the washer after every use? It’s suppose to clean itself while it cleans the laundry!
There are a lot of responsibilities and maintenance that needs done when you own your own home! This home maintenance checklist tells me what needs done and how often at my house to ensure everything is running properly and being maintained.
I don’t know about you but I hate cleaning! With family and work, its hard to find time to clean regularly and maintain my house on a daily basis. I started using this cleaning list so that I would only have to spend around 30 minutes cleaning each day, instead of spending several hours cleaning on the weekends.
Here are the things that I try to do daily to maintain my house:
