Hey everybody!

Today, I’m going to talk to you about my weekly cleaning of my house, monthly cleaning of my house, and some of the organizational things that I do. First off, as a kid my mom was kind of strict about cleaning and keeping things organized. As a child, I didn’t appreciate it at the time. Now as an adult, I’m thankful that both of my parents engraved that into me. I am super excited about sharing this with you guys, it’s something totally different from my normal fitness related posts.

First off, my weekly cleaning. I normally clean on Friday afternoons. I get off work, most of the time at 12:00 P.M. I really love cleaning, it’s really stress free. I feel a lot better after I clean. I kind of wind down when I clean. Just throw on some Frank Sinatra, Johnny Cash, or some type of music and just clean! Haha! I’ll list out my cleaning supplies as well cause I think everyone has an idea of what they like to use. Everyone has their favorite brands.

Weekly:

  1. Sweep (Every other day cause of my dog (she sheds way too much, it’s crazy how much she sheds.).)
  2. Mop (Twice a week.)
  3. Dust
  4. Bathrooms
  5. Laundry
  6. Towels
  7. Garage (Sweep or Blowout.)
  8. Back Porch (Sweep twice a week and mop once a month)
  9. Kitchen (Wipe down counter tops, table, etc etc)
  10. Office (I keep Willow in here while I’m at  work so it gets a lot of her hair in there.)
  11. Dishes
  12. Vacuum

Monthly:

  1. Closets
  2. Dresser (I pick through my clothes a lot so a lot of the time shirts get wrinkled and stuffed in there. I like to go through and straighten things up.)
  3. Drawers (In the living room, kitchen, and nightstand.)
  4. Movies (I have a bunch of video games and DVDs.)
  5. Air Filters
  6. Ceiling Fans (They are always on, so I got no clue how dust gets up there and stays up there.)
  7. Change sheets
  8. Wash Couch Covers and Blankets
  9. Clean Trashcans With Bleach

Cleaning Supplies:

  1. Bona  (For laminate and tile.)
  2. Pledge (My favorite to use to dust.)
  3. Think it’s by Method, I can’t find it at the moment. (To polish the wood. Gives it a really good natural wood smell as well.)
  4. Comet/Ajax (For my bathtubs and toilets.)
  5. Magic Leather Cleaner
  6. Method Daily Granite (Counter tops in the kitchen and bathrooms.)
  7. Perfect Sink (Cleans, shines, and protects!)
  8. Cerema Bryte (The only thing that can really clean my stove top. I figured out that if you use a microfiber cloth to wipe it off, it won’t leave streaks to it. It’ll give it a nice clean finish.)

It usually takes me a few hours to do all the stuff that I do. Just because I’ll sweep and mop, then sit on the couch while the floor dries. I’ll spray the cleaning stuff in my bathtubs and toilets and leave it alone for a few minutes to let it soak in really good. In between doing all that, I also have my laundry on in hopes that once I finish cleaning that all my clothes and towels will be dry and I can fold it all up. I used to hate cleaning, however, when you live with someone and they are really messy. It kind of inspires you to be a little bit neater.

Recently, I went through my kitchen cabinets (not all of them but a few) and reorganized the glasses, plates, cups, etc etc. I got a drawer in there that’s got a lot of random stuff in it that I need to go through. Think it’s got some screws, batteries, napkins, medicine, trash, etc etc. That same day, I went through all the drawers in the living room and got all my movies, books, and games reorganized. I don’t know why it is so tough to put a DVD back into the box. I get so mad when I see someone do it then sometimes I’ll do it and just not even realize it until a few days later when I see the DVD sitting on top of my Xbox One. It’s somewhat frustrating.

I need to go through some of my clothes, my office, fitness equipment, garage, and the shelves on my back porch. There’s a lot of thing that I don’t wear anymore, no longer able to wear, things that I don’t use anymore, as well as numerous other things. While I’m thinking about it, I need to go through my comic books as well. It’s been awhile since I’ve read in them. I know I have some scattered all over the place. Speaking of comics, I have a lot of them. I may end up changing my office around and use it as my nerd room. Just cause I collect comics, statues, pins, patches, and some of the PopFunko. I may end up building a few book shelves to hold some things. When you do construction work, you get pretty handy at a wide variety of skills.

I wasn’t feeling 100% yesterday so I’m doing all my cleaning this morning. In between doing that, I’ve been writing this blog! I hope everyone has enjoyed this one. It’s a lot shorter than my normal ones. Nonetheless, I hope you all enjoy it! I’m off to fold laundry and finish my cleaning! Everyone have a great weekend!
