My New Year’s Resolution

This New Year cleaning resolution tips post is brought to you by Mr. Clean as part of a Type-A Parent Community Sponsored Post.

One of my New Year’s resolutions this year is to stay on top of my house cleaning.  Sometimes, in the midst of everyday life, things tend to get away from me.  In my defense, I’d much rather be spending quality time with my family making memories, than scrubbing, polishing and dusting.

However, I think know that if I resolve to do a little bit each day, I can keep my house tidy without that frantic massive cleaning marathon that I’m so used to doing.

The first place I started is my kitchen cabinets!  After the Christmas bake and cook-a-thon that I had in my kitchen, my cabinets were in dire need of some TLC.

Thankfully, I had my handy bottle of Mr. Clean liquid gel.  This stuff is awesome!  I love that I can use one product to clean my entire house – bathrooms, kitchen, laundry room.  It’s even safe to use on my wooden cabinets and hardwood floors!

To clean my cabinets, I diluted the liquid gel in some warm water and used a super soft sponge to give everything a once-over.  It cleaned everything up beautifully!  I mean just look at those cabinets shine!  Gorgeous!

And, I love the fresh lemony scent!  It just smells so clean.

Here’s my plan for keeping my house ship-shape:

Monday:  Clean bathrooms — sinks, tubs, toilets, floors
Tuesday: Clean kitchen — counters, floors, fridge, stove, oven, microwave
Wednesday: Clean living rooms and dining room – vaccuum, dust
Thursday: Laundry
Friday: Clean bedrooms — launder bedding, dust, vaccuum
Saturday & Sunday: RELAX!
Daily:  Make beds, de-clutter, dishes

Seems manageable, right?!  If you’d like a more in-depth cleaning schedule and checklist, my good friend Megan at NEPAmom has a great one!  Check it out!
