How to keep your home clean year-round and still have a life.
Maybe you found yourself inspired to make a change when your annual Fall/Winter Wardrobe Switch did NOT go without a hitch. Or maybe it was when you were trying to prepare for guests before the holidays. That’s when most people formally proclaim a new year’s resolution related to house cleaning.
Whether your plan to approach house cleaning differently in 2017 has been in the making for a while or is brand new (maybe even inspired by these images!), taking a holistic view of the entire year’s worth of cleaning will help set the stage for an orderly and manageable transition for your home and for you.

For do-it-yourself (DIY) cleaners, getting your home clean and keeping it clean year-round does not require week-long cleaning binges – in fact we recommend against this practice. Because dirt keeps on coming, regardless of whether your home is clean or filthy, we believe cleaning should be more of a continuous motion. We don’t mean 24/7 – just that every day some task or tasks is completed that contributes to your home’s cleanliness.
The problem is that without a clearly defined plan to execute all the tasks necessary for overall cleanliness, only certain areas will be cleaned adequately. You won’t see (or enjoy) the fruits of your labor, get discouraged and quit trying. INSTEAD, use our complete, handy Cleaning Checklists to keep you on track. Follow these DIY Checklists and have confidence that you are not overlooking any tasks or doing them more often than necessary.
