Have you ever spent a few hours or even an entire day cleaning the house, only to look around and feel like you didn’t get anything done? Try adding these to your house cleaning schedule. You’ll clean more in less time, and you’ll know nothing got overlooked.

The great thing about using a checklist is that you don’t forget any steps. If you get interrupted while cleaning — and, if you’re a parent, you know interruptions are almost guaranteed — you can easily pick up right where you were without skipping a thing.

How to Use House Cleaning Checklists

Make them reusable. Print the checklists you want to use in your house cleaning schedule, then slip them into plastic page covers. As you work, cross items off with a dry-erase pen or crayon, then wipe the page when you’re done.

Stash your pages where you can easily find them. Stash your cleaning checklists in a household binder if you use one or in the room where you’ll use them. I keep a copy of the nightly kitchen cleaning checklist taped inside a cabinet door to make it easy for family members to help tidy up at the end of the night.

Get your family involved! Using cleaning checklists makes it easy for everyone in the family to help. For example, with older kids, give them a specific room’s checklist, and they’ll know what and how to clean it. Or, to make cleaning day a family project, work together on a checklist. Each one contains multiple boxes, so you can go step by step or assign each family member a box.

Daily Cleaning Checklists

The daily cleaning routine is about tidying your home to keep it looking nice, even when you haven’t had time to clean. Then use the nightly kitchen routine to “close the kitchen” for the night and help avoid household pests. Your mornings will go more smoothly when you don’t start them looking at a mess.

Weekly House Cleaning Checklists

Use these as part of your house cleaning schedule, whether you prefer doing one room a day or doing them all on the weekend. You’ll work faster, clean more thoroughly, and know you didn’t overlook a thing.

Spring Cleaning Checklists

Spring Cleaning is an enormous task, so it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. The routines below break it down into manageable steps. You don’t have to wait until Spring to do them, though. Use these checklists to deep clean your home any time of year!
