I am getting the house cleaned ...and finally found a system that seems to be working for me

- clean the thing the bothers me the most first.

Re: cleaning
I've gotten several tips from a magazine prompting REALly SIMPLE cleaning hacks

baseboards - use inexpensive baby wipes (or have your kids use them) to clean the baseboards (mine have not been cleaned in a very long time :o)

- this worked really well

a follow up is to "dust" the clean (& dry) baseboards with fabric softener sheets (to make it easier to clean in the future)

- I've not tried this yet

The mag also suggests using microfiber cloths

Re: cleaning
I've made progress - the living areas of the house are clean (for the most part); baseboards in 3 rooms are clean, closets in 2 rooms organized, and I've started on things in the yard that bother me. :D

Re: cleaning
The basement is mostly organized! :) (DM's stuff needs to be reorganized - her stuff is in one area but as of now it no longer takes half of the basement - some of her stuff is on shelves - but I need to organize her stuff -ex all boxes of family pics together, all her decorations together, and so on )

goal is to finish the basement and the garage during July

We will need more storage shelves before we start on the attic (Sept/Oct)

Re: cleaning
I have been looking for a cleaning system for me for a very long time, but I'm still choosing. I like the cleaning system of Marie Kondo, but I find it quite complicated for me, it takes a lot of time to put the whole house in order. Now I'm trying to choose from different cleaning systems what works for me. I also want to advise you on this portal about cleaning edit by moderator to remove link , there are a lot of useful articles about different materials and cleaning products for them, I also found how to use some of the modes of my vacuum cleaner and steam cleaner that I had not used before. It really helps me save time on cleaning.

I just read articles in a REALly SIMPLE magazine that give suggestions, etc.

Re: cleaning
do one room at a time, you should also stick to a schedule

Re: cleaning
I just can't get it the habit of a schedule.

Re: cleaning
I'm back to cleaning (again)

I've cleaned our utility room & a closet.

I'm going to need boxes for Goodwill -once they reopen.

Re: cleaning
I've deep cleaned the bathroom, cleaned out and reorganised my bedroom closet, plus mopped the kitchen floor (after I made pickles for DH).
