Are you a working mom who hates cleaning all weekend? I know I am. Today I’m sharing some easy cleaning tips for during the work week.
Okay, real talk. I hate cleaning. Which probably puts my old-school Puerto Rican mother to shame because her home is immaculate. Seriously, walk in any day of the week and you can eat off the woman’s floors. My mother took pride in her home and keeping her home clean was a reflection of that. We didn’t have much, but what we had was kept clean and well cared for.
As a mom who works outside of the home 5 days a week, I hate having to spend the entire weekend cleaning, especially as the weather gets warmer. I’m starting my spring cleaning a bit early and lately I’ve been cleaning a little bit every day.
Being the only female in a 2-bedroom apartment has its challenges. Sharing a small bathroom with my husband and son is the biggest one.
And even though I hate cleaning, the bathroom is the one room that gets cleaned every single day. Because. Boys.
I remember when Norrin was first diagnosed with autism, he was provided with home-based therapy. When the therapist called to confirm her schedule and said she wanted to start the next day, I said, “Oh no, I have to clean first.” There was no way, I’d have a stranger over and my apartment look a mess. The therapist said she didn’t care, but I did.
That was years ago and we’ve had dozens of therapists in and out of our home. Too many to care if there’s dust on the shelves or things out of place.
But when it comes to the bathroom, I am my mother’s daughter. Our bathroom isn’t anything you’ll see on Pinterest but it’s the only one we have and I want it clean at all times.
So I have to clean every day.
It’s not as bad as it sounds. And by doing a little something every day, it makes the weekends easier and more enjoyable.
And like my mother, my goal for a clean bathroom is use products that clean, disinfect and aromatize. Some of my favorite cleaning products include Clorox and Pine Sol.
My absolute go to product is the Lavender scented Clorox Disinfecting Wipes – they make cleaning super easy. The wipes are a huge time saver. Wiping down the bathroom sink is one of the very last things I do before heading out the door for work every morning.
Easy Cleaning Bathroom Tips for Everyday
- Right before leaving for work, pour a little Pine-Sol into the toilet bowl. Wait a few minutes, then scrub.
- Wipe down sink with Clorox Disinfecting Wipes
- If needed, spot clean floors with Clorox Disinfecting Wipes
- Wipe door knobs with Clorox Disinfecting Wipes (especially during flu season)
- Last person who showers, spray tub tiles with Pine Sol/water mixture.
Easy Cleaning Tricks
- Use spray bottles for quick and easy cleaning
- Keep Clorox Disinfecting Wipes nearby for convenience
Easy Cleaning Hack
Clorox liquid bleach isn’t just for mildew shower stains and brightening whites. Every few weeks, swap out the Pine-Sol for Clorox liquid bleach to sanitize floors but save this for the weekend.
