If you’re looking for a way to keep your home clean and organized, a daily cleaning schedule is a great place to start. By taking care of small tasks each day, you can avoid having to spend hours cleaning every week.

If you’re like most moms, you probably feel like you’re always cleaning something. It seems like there’s never enough time to get everything done. But did you know that by creating a daily cleaning schedule, you can make sure that all the important tasks are taken care of without having to spend hours on end scrubbing and dusting? In this blog post, we’ll outline what chores need to be done each day in order to keep your home clean and organized.

So let’s get started!

Daily Cleaning Schedule What to do each day!

Daily Cleaning Schedule

Each day, there are specific household chores and cleaning that I have found to be important to do both to keep the house clean and the family healthy. You may choose to do these chores less often than once a day based on you life and family size, which is perfectly fine.

Also, depending on what type of furniture, floors, etc. you have in your home, some of these tasks may not apply to you, so in those cases, just ignore!

Here are the daily cleaning tasks you’ll need to do:

Daily Bathroom Cleaning

  • Wipe down the sink and faucet
  • Wipe the toilet seat and rim with a disinfecting wipe.
  • If the toilet bowl seems dirty, you can clean it but I prefer to use Toilet Cleaning Stamps that is placed on the inside of the bowl that cleans the bowl with every flush.
  • Spray the shower, tub, and shower door/curtain with a daily shower spray.
  • Replace any dirty towels or washcloths with clean ones.
  • Check to see if anything needs replenished – toilet paper, soap dispensers, etc.

Daily Living Areas Cleaning

  • Make beds in the morning
  • Straighten all pillows and blankets on the chairs and couches
  • Wipe any crumbs and spills from tabletops
  • Put toys away into the toy box or designated areas

Daily Kitchen Cleaning

  • Empty the dishwasher and put away clean dishes.
  • Empty the sink of any dirty dishes and put into the dishwasher and run it before going to bed.
  • Spray and wipe counters and appliances with an all purpose cleaner.
  • Sweep the floor.

It may seem like a long list of items but some of them may only take a few minutes, such as emptying the dishwasher or replacing tissue paper rolls.

Daily cleaning may seem daunting, but by breaking it into smaller tasks and chunks of time, you’ll be surprised at how quickly it can get done! It only takes maybe 5 minutes per room to follow this list of tasks. You can even do some of these tasks in the morning and some in the evening before bed. Plus, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that your home is clean and organized.

There are plenty of cleaning tools and accessories that can also help you complete these tasks and do so faster. The below list includes my favorite cleaning supplies that help me get more done and spend less time cleaning.

Cleaning Supplies That You Need To Have

  1. Cleaning Caddy – I always use a cleaning caddy to hold all of my cleaners, dusters and rags. This way I can move easily from one room to the next and always have the items I need.
  2. Handheld vacuum – having a small handheld vacuum makes sweeping up messes or cleaning off the couches easier than hauling the large sweeper around the house.
  3. Swiffer Wet Jet – mopping is so much faster with this. The liquid is ready to use and clean up is super easy by just ripping off the one time use pad and throwing it away.
  4. Toilet Cleaning Stamps are a great way to keep your toilets cleaner for longer, saving you time everyday. Just stick one on the side of the bowl and it cleans every time it flushes.
  5. Swiffer dusters (and with an extending handle) are great for dusting electronics, fans, bookshelves, light fixtures and more. Each duster holds a lot of dust and allergens so they don’t need to be replaced very often.

How to Plan Out Your Cleaning Schedule

Depending on whether you choose to do all of your cleaning at one time during the day or separate it around other chores or activities is totally up to you. Regardless of how you want to clean, it is helpful to have a plan of what tasks you want to complete.

The first step to do this is to create a list of all the chores that need to be done around the house for that day. You can even include any weekly cleaning tasks that you might assign to a specific day in addition to your everyday items.

If you are a planner or calendar person, it would be helpful to add those tasks on your calendar or to-do list as a reminder. If you prefer not to use a planner or calendar, that’s totally fine too. You can just write a Daily Cleaning Schedule list and post it on your Home Command Center, on the fridge or inside a cupboard door as a reminder of what tasks need to be completed each day or week.
