Ever wonder if you’re really cleaning your home as thoroughly as you think? A cleaning checklist can fix that.
Or maybe you’re confident in your cleaning skills but you need to work a little at a time. Yep, a cleaning checklist can fix that, too!
I still use my cleaning checklists to this day. They keep me on track and take the guesswork out of what I need to do. Since I have ADHD, I prefer not relying on my brain to remember all the details since I tend to get distracted by — SQUIRREL! This way, I know where I left off.

Tips to Get the Most out of Checklists
- Make them reusable: I keep my cleaning checklists in plastic page protectors and cross off items with a dry-erase marker. A quick wipe after I’m done and they’re ready for next time.
- Adapt them to your needs: Each checklist is divided into sections, so you can doit all at once or divide it over time.
- Get your family involved: With a cleaning checklist, everyone knows what needs to be done and how to do it well.
