With this cleaning checklist, it will minimise the amount of time needed for cleaning on your precious weekends. Read on for the 101 on daily cleaning.


Sink – 

Use a washcloth to wipe the sink bowl and faucet handles. Windex Glass and Surface wipes are a good choice – they won’t leave streaks on the mirror. 30 seconds

Toilet – 

Wipe the seat with the same cloth – as long as you wipe the toilet last. Give the bowl a quick scrub with the brush. 30 seconds

Shower – 

Water droplets can cause spotting on the glass doors – use a dry towel to wipe down the shower doors. Give the shower and curtain a quick spray with cleaner to avoid soap scum build-up. 1 minute



Sink – 

Clean the dishes or move them to the dishwasher. Make sure to wipe down the sink with a sponge and hang the dish towels. 10 minutes

Countertops & stove – 

Use an all-purpose cleaner to clean down the countertops, with a sponge. Sweep the kitchen floor with a dustpan and brush. 1 minute


Lounge & Living rooms

Floor & clutter – 

Clear away the majority of clutter from the floors or tables. Straighten the coffee table, remotes and books. Wipe surfaces with a damp cloth and give the floor a quick vacuum – look out for dust and crumbs. 5 minutes


Tidy the furniture, fluff the pillows and fold the blankets. 2 minutes



Bed & furniture – 

Make the bed, clear away any dishes or glasses. Straighten the items on the bedside table and wipe down the surface tops. 2 minutes

Belongings – 

Resist throwing your clothes somewhere at the end of the day! Fold, hang or put clothes in the washing basket. Put any other belongings back in their spots. 2 minutes
