My cleaner does a really good full clean of the house on a Wednesday whilst I'm at work and then I tend to vacuum the downstairs a couple of times a week besides. The bathrooms tend to get a wipe over daily as I have a thing a bout shiny bathrooms :oops: . I've just finished a spring clean of the house and tend to do that with the change of the seasons but I do sometimes get the urge to do one out of the blue :giggle: :giggle:

The beds are made every day and the bedding is changed approx twice weekly. I cannot get into an unmade bed, it just feels wrong :oops:

Im fairly clean tbh, i used to be a mostly daily kinda girl on the hoovering etc but i switched to 3-4 times a week. The deep clean is prob the only area i hesitated on - i dont make a conscious decision to do it, its only really a case of washing down the skirtings, light fittings etc - things like my kitchen cupboards and what not get done as i go all the time, that way its not a big chore.

Windows as i have learnt dont need doing as often as you think they need to, i used to have a windowcleaner come every 2wks but when tightening our belts i let him go and do it myself, they dont need doing more than once a month and i live on a busy road and tbh, downstairs windows is usually more than inside than the out due to the dog nose marks on them lol.

Beds - make them every day, i cant stand messy beds, but i do have a passion for bedding so that helps i guess as i like to see them all nicely presented :)

The bathroom, i would like to clean it twice a week but, as anyone who has seen my bathroom - its pretty big, with a lot of stuff to clean inc a massive walk in shower etc - it just takes too long. When i had a cleaner she did it on her day and i would do it again at the weekend for example and sometimes if im working late in the week DH will do it so it does get 2x a week cleaning but as a rule i put once a week because *i* wont clean it twice a week (other than a loo scrub which i do every day/other day)

Ok... So reading other posts i think i'm a slob!! I keep ontop of bathrooms and kitchen floor. Hubby is supposedly in charge of hoovering and dusting... So it often gets forgotten!
I'm a naturally messy and cluttered person, so is hubby, so we'll never have a show home-but i love the 'lived in' look...! I am particular about changing bedding ,and like louise said, in summer/warmer weeks i will happily change more than once a week.

For the bed people - throw your bed back when you get up, but make the bed later :thumbsup:

When i get up i throw the covers back, open the window to air the bedroom out, then when we come to get dressed i make the beds.

That's not long enough to fully air and dry out in my mind. I'd rather the duvet stayed back all day!

Ok, i am a slob :oops:

Floors downstairs get swept daily (more than once usually) and mopped twice but i'm not so good with the rest. Dusting and cobweb-removing never happens

Hehe, i dont mind the idea of a few mites, theyre normal and we dont have allergies so they dont really matter - i flip, hover, rotate the mattress etc... couldnt be doing with the bed not being made :giggle:

:oops: I'm bit of a clean freak. We spring clean every two weeks to. I literally couldn't go to bed if I haven't hoovered at least once that day :loopy:

All our toilets get cleaned every day and when I mop the floors I do the skirting boards as well , I hang our duvet over our bedroom balcony to air when it is nice, think I needs to change beds mire iften though, couldn't do twice a week though x
