Face it, we all hate to clean our homes. There are some things that must be done daily, some weekly, some monthly, some every six months, and some only once a year.
I like the once-a-year tasks better. Here are a few of them....
Replace your smoke detector batteries. Boring, but necessary.
Wash your windows. Yucch.
Have your furnace cleaned and checked.
Wash your drapes.
Clean behind the fridge.
Wash all blankets and comforters.
Wash your blinds.
Clean out your medicine cabinets and throw out the expired medicine.
Clean out and wash your kitchen cabinets. Discard or give away any dishes or pans that you don't use.
What's important is establishing a routine that is right for you and your schedule and sticking to it. The cleaning will be done before you know it!
