This printable monthly cleaning routine can help you keep up with weekly chores along with all of the other little tasks that go into keeping a home clean and organized.
Using a Monthly Cleaning Routine
Nothing says you have to clean seven days a week — that’s just how I organized the printable. If I’d made it a 5-day schedule, someone would’ve pointed out that 20 (or 25) days is not a full month.
Don’t want to clean on the weekends? I don’t blame you! Move the tasks in the final two boxes to earlier in the week. Or check off boxes as you go and start back at square one after you’ve completed the rest.
It’s up to you!
Try it With Cleaning Checklists
I love following cleaning checklists because they make sure I don’t overlook any steps. The ones I’ve created aren’t just thorough — they’re also easy to follow. So easy, in fact, that I can hand one to my kids and let them help around the house, too!
If you want to use cleaning checklists in conjunction with this 30-day plan, you’ll find them here:
• Daily Cleaning Routine
• Weekly Kitchen Cleaning Checklist
• Weekly Bathroom Cleaning Checklist
• Weekly Living Room Cleaning Checklist
• Weekly Bedroom Cleaning Checklist
• Weekly Kids’ Bedroom Cleaning Checklist
You can find checklists for other cleaning tasks on my big page of printable cleaning checklists, too.
Need a More Detailed Guide?
If you need even more motivation, along with specific and detailed cleaning advice, check out my book 30 Days to a Clean and Organized House (paperback or Kindle). I’ll walk you through deep-cleaning every surface of every room in your home, giving you checklists and tips along the way.
By the time you’ve finished the book, your entire house will be cleaner and more organized than ever before — then this schedule will help you keep it that way!
Printable Monthly Cleaning Routine
To use printable cleaning checklists, I recommend slipping them into plastic page protectors, so you can cross off items with a dry-erase pen as you complete them. Whether you keep those in a household binder or not is a matter of personal preference.
Personally, I find maintaining those binders turns into another chore. I just tape my cleaning routines inside a cupboard or on the back of a door in the relevant room, then keep the daily and monthly schedule on my fridge where they nag me into completing them.
