There’s no time like the new year to make it a priority to clean your home, but it can seem daunting if you don’t know where to start. The easiest way to keep your home tidy and clean is to do a little bit every day. Our ultimate weekly cleaning checklist will keep you on track throughout the week, so you don’t have to spend your entire Saturday scrubbing floors and cleaning bathrooms.

Everyday Cleaning Checklist

A small amount of light cleaning every day will make everything seem more manageable throughout the week. Whether you clean a little bit at a time throughout the day or do it all at the end of the day before you go to bed, here’s a list of cleaning items to complete every day:

  • Make the beds.
  • Empty all garbage bins.
  • Do a single load of laundry.
  • Wipe down the kitchen table and countertops.
  • Sweep the floors.
  • Wash the dishes and leave the sink empty.
  • Tidy up and clear the clutter.


Are you sick of opening your fridge to rotten produce and having a sink that’s constantly full of dishes? Here’s the solution. Make your kitchen the focus of your Monday. In addition to your everyday cleaning tasks, work on the following areas:

  • Wipe down the refrigerator and microwave.
  • Get rid of expired food.
  • Wipe the fronts of the kitchen cabinets.
  • Mop the floor.
  • Clean the sink.


Take a little time out of your Tuesday to clean your bathrooms. Even 10 minutes of working on these tasks can make a big difference.

  • Mop the floor.
  • Wash the mirror, vanity, and countertop.
  • Wipe down the shower, sink, and bathtub.
  • Scrub and wipe down the toilet.
  • Top off the toilet paper and hand soap.
  • Wash the towels.


By Wednesday, you’ve put in a lot of work to clean your home. So now you can spend your day lightly dusting around the house. Dust furniture, blinds, baseboards, and anywhere else that dust collects in your home.


It’s recommended to wash your sheets once a week, so make this the goal of your Thursday. Putting fresh, clean sheets on your bed weekly can help with allergies and asthma and will also help your bedroom feel fresh and clean.


You did it! If you completed all of your cleaning tasks for the week, then you can take it easy on Friday. If not, spend a few minutes tackling the items you missed earlier in the week.
