Wow! When you find out let me know.  I have three dogs and a cat and am trying to sell my house.   I clean 24/7.  Plus I have a pre-teen who can't seem to even put trash in the trash can.  The only way I can manage to keep things clean is to vacuum and mop every day and then do little projects every day and clean like crazy on the weekends.

I do the same thing as samrhett. I'm constantly cleaning. I've got my daily routine of beds-laundry-dishes-sweeping-mopping, and I also keep some of those generic dollar store Clorox-type wipes in the bathroom, and I'll give the sinks a once over with those every day. Then I have my weekly routine where each day, a different room gets the deep cleaning treatment:

Mondays - Office and laundry room
Tuesday - Kitchen and downstairs bath
Wednesday - Living room/dining room/foyer
Thursday - Bedrooms
Friday - Upstairs bath, hallway and staircase

It is so good to see people are organized in their household chores.  I have no list but I do what I can to keep up. Working online makes it hard, but I always have a clean house.

Well it is just me, my boyfriend, and the dog, oh and the fish I clean house everyday picking up after b/f and vacuuming after the dog he is a never ending chore I also spend many hours online trying to make money but it makes the day go better knowing if my friend shows up the house is clean I start my day by making coffee, making b/f lunch, cleaning the counter and table, feeding/taking the dog out, dusting, vacuuming, dusting, and then getting on computer some days I don't seem to find the time to eat properly lol

Wow, we are all alike in one way or another. I have OCD so I clean way too much, and way too much of the time.

Don't allow Toddlers and Teenagers in your house!
Don't have a gravel driveway.
Have no pets in the house.
Do have central vaccum.
Have a drain in the middle of the Concrete Floor for hosing off the floor.
Get a maid.

oh shut up, quit bragging, come over and do mine too.
I don't even bother until the weekend. I hate it but I hate recleaning what I just cleaned. Help me, I need help!! :BangHead:

I like to clean as I go. It helps if everything has a place so no clutter, use it put it back, cook and then clean up. The rotine stuff like vacuming, dusting, laundry, mopping ect. I have a loose schedule so something gets done every day and then the house nevere really looks dirty. But all that being said, it would be nice tobe able to wave a magic wand and everything be done ;D

Hi hlvhome, it's so funny what you said about waving a "magic wand," because as I sat at my computer I said "abra gadabra" clean my desk, lol!

I give up , when the wind blows here so does the dirt. It is so dry. Did not use to be this way. It could be worse. It could be  full of smoke. We got smoke here from the fires in western n.m. and we live about 450-500 miles east of it. Pray for rain there they need it to bring the fires under control.

It is a pain isn't it.  I love my dogs, but when they pass on, I will only have one dog from now on unless I have lots of properties and outbuildings where I can spend time with them.  Too much work!
