A little guide to a year of cleaning your space

We all wonder, either as new homeowners or old ones, what all we are supposed to be cleaning throughout the year. Well, we did a little research and made a helpful guide on what all we should be doing daily, weekly, monthly, and so on… check it out.


  • clean dishes that are in the sink and throw that sponge in the dishwasher every once in a while. Gnats and fruit flies love your unclean dishes
  • wipe down bathroom and kitchen/dining surfaces daily to keep that granite you took 2 months to pick out looking new
  • phone screens, remote controls & car keys ( bet you never cleaned those) should probably get a quick wet wipe or alcohol wipe down every day
  • some people do a load of laundry a day to keep those baskets low- worth a try to see if it works for you


  • dust all exposed surfaces that need it
  • vacuum main area floors and maybe take a mop to it all while you’re at it
  • sheets, pillowcases, duvets, and towels- all in the wash
  • throw away sponges from the week of dishes
  • floss your teeth


  • wipe down baseboards and pantry shelves
  • replace water filters, clean out tea kettle, coffee maker wipe down, microwave wipe out, and run something through that disposal
  • mop or vacuum the rest of the house
  • clean throw blankets and things that get used not as often, but do get used enough to need to clean them


  • clean mattress pads, shower curtains
  • clean out fridge, freezer and oven
  • replace toothbrushes, air filters for HVAC, cosmetic sponges, and loofahs
  • whiten your teeth


  • clean outside and inside of all windows
  • curtains and drapes cleaned to avoid dust accumulation
  • gutters need a blow out
  • replace refrigerator water filters and toilet brushes
  • go see your dentist (had to throw it in there)


  • wipe down walls and doors
  • clean all area rugs
  • clean out garage and shed
  • replace hair brushes (how long have you had that one you just used this morning?)
  • de-clutter and donate things you’re not using or cleaning on this list
