Cleaning

Zen Cleaning Routine

In every aspect of our lives we have to do what works for ourselves in our own situation. Here’s the cleaning routine that works for me.

I get up at 5am and clean in the silence of the early morning. It’s more like moving mediation.

Monday:
Wipe down kitchen cabinets
Clean main floor half bath
Sweep kitchen floor
Dust dining table and chairs

Tuesday:
Clean upstairs bathrooms
Mop bathroom floors

Wednesday:
(Afternoon)
Change bed sheets
Dust bedroom furniture
Vacuum bedrooms

Thursday:
Dust living room
Vacuum living room
Mop front entry
Clean doors

Friday:
Clean out refrigerator and wipe down
Sweep and mop kitchen floor

Weekends:
House maintenance
Yard work
Odds and ends

We use:
Baking soda = scrub sinks and pans
Vinegar/Castile soap = all-purpose cleaner
Olive oil = polish
Vinegar= clean windows and mirrors
Castile soap/Water= Most things
