House Cleaning is an important part of anyone's life, but it can be easier
talked about than done.  When faced with a whole house, keeping everything
spic and span can be pretty intimidating.  If you're having trouble figuring out
where to start, you're not alone.  Many of us have trouble dealing with our clutter.  
Don't let it win the battle - take charge with a
house cleaning checklist!

A house cleaning checklist can help you make sense out of the chaos and
start getting things in order.  What seemed impossible before becomes
something you can deal with, once you have a good housecleaning checklist.  
You can go through, room by room, and prioritize the most important tasks.  
After all, some things need done regularly, while others can wait.  
Here's a checklist to help you organize your cleaning efforts and take on any
cleaning task at all.  Remember - you don't have to do the whole list in a single day,
and each task might not be done every time you clean.  Feel free to use the list as
a guideline, or to modify it to suit your lifestyle.  Just start using it, and you'll be
amazed at the difference it makes.
Remember that you'll need to periodically clean the nooks and crannies.  While it's possible to get
everything done, and just about anyone can do it, you will need some time and determination.  Keep
on top of your house cleaning checklist to make sure you don't spend extra time cleaning.  It's
important to focus on what you're doing and work efficiently.

Clean things top to bottom - even rooms, and back to front.  This helps you avoid dirtying the
area you've already cleaned.  Work your way around a room a little at a time.  That allows you to do it
in stages if you need to.  You can place cleaning supplies in a bucket or basket to make them easier
to carry around the house if you're doing one big cleaning day.

Dust first, and vacuum later.  That keeps you from getting dirt and dust all over your newly vacuumed
area.  Dusting should be started at the top - on the highest shelves, the corners of the ceiling, and the
tops of cabinets.  The good news is that these are less dusty than lower shelves.  Keep working down,
moving the dust lower, then vacuum the remainder away when you get to the floor.

In addition to a
good house cleaning checklist, you'll also need a cleaning schedule.  Remember
that messes get worse the longer you put up dealing with them.  If your home is to big to do in one day,
do all rooms of one type at a time, or only one floor at once.  Identify trouble spots before you get to
them and have a plan for dealing with them.

Don't forget that you don't have to go it alone.  Others in the house can be assigned tasks, and if
you need to, you can even get friends and relatives to assist you with a big deep clean.  For regular
cleaning, you can assign tasks to each person in the house, and rotate weekly.  Use the right tools for
the right job, and stick to non toxic products if you can.  That'll be better for your family's health.
