Each Thursday is Floor Day–The Area of Focus this Week Is Your Bedroom, Closet, and Attached Bathroom

imageEach Thursday clean your floors. The basic idea is having a time each week to deal with tasks. This does not mean you cannot do these things at other times. You can and should clean out your car or your purse, regularly, but on Friday it becomes a focus. If your floors need attention, give them attention. Wipe up spills as they occur. If you are having a gathering at your home on a day other than Thursday and you feel your floors need attention, give them attention. BUT on Thursday take a few minutes to sweep and mop them. What works for you? What will help you keep your floors clean? Do you have doormats by each of your doors? If you keep much of the dirt out, you are ahead in the battle. Place a mat outside each door into your home and a mat inside each door into your home. Shake out those mats regularly.

Each Thursday is Floor Day. Our Area of Focus this week is our Bedroom, Bathroom, and Closet.
Each Thursday clean your hard floors. Don’t obsess. Get out whatever cleaning tools and products you use for the various types of flooring surfaces in your home and do it! For quick pickups I like to use the wet Swiffer pads. When the floor is in my Area of Focus, I take more time to clean the floor more thoroughly including the baseboards. Before you apply any water or wet products to your floor make sure you sweep to remove loose dirt and debris. Otherwise you will be gluing the dirt to the floor and making a greater mess for the next thorough cleaning.

Each Thursday clean your floors. The whole idea is having a time each week to deal with tasks. This does not mean you cannot do these things at other times. You can and should clean out your car or your purse, regularly, but on Friday it becomes a focus. If your floors need attention, give them attention. Wipe up spills as they occur. If you are having a gathering at your home and you feel your floors need attention, give them attention. BUT on Thursday take a few minutes to sweep and mop them. I have a Norwex floor system and the first time I used it I felt like I must be doing something wrong because I was finished so quickly. What works for you? What will help you keep your floors clean? Do you have doormats by each of your doors? If you keep much of the dirt out, you are ahead in the battle.

This week’s Area of Focus is the Kitchen. Give special attention to your kitchen floor today. Don’t forget the baseboards.
