You didn’t know it was possible to make such a mess in under 3 seconds. 

Toothpaste splatters on the mirror. Dishes overflowing the sink. LEGO’s strategically placed like landmines waiting to be stepped on.

As a new mom, one of the biggest struggles was trying to figure out how to balance taking care of a newborn while keeping the house from looking like a tornado tore through it. 

I needed a practical cleaning solution that could be done quickly and easily with a baby harnessed to my chest. 

The daily cleaning checklist will help you find a balance between spending time with your kids and having a presentable house. It’s possible to do both!

Incorporate these quick steps into your daily routine and you won’t feel like you’re failing at the housekeeping portion of mom life.

Bedroom

Recommended supplies:

Each morning right after you get up the first thing you should do is make your bed. This simple task will make you feel like a boss that can handle anything thrown your way.

Pick up any clothes or shoes you have lying around on the floor. If your husband is anything like mine he can’t find the dirty clothes hamper to save his life.

If you have carpet, start your vacuum and move on with life.

Bathroom

After you’ve brushed your teeth and taken your shower you might as well straighten up while you’re in there.

Try cleaning while you get ready like wiping off the mirror and countertops after you’ve brushed your teeth. Or you can wait until you’re done getting ready and clean all at once.

If your little one is old enough to brush their teeth and do their own morning routine you can also do this for their bathroom (or have them do it depending on their age).

Kitchen

The kitchen is an area of constant use. But you can easily keep it clean by working in increments instead of doing everything at once.

In the morning I put away the clean dishes in the dishwasher and put the dirty breakfast dishes in there. All throughout the day we put dishes in the dishwasher and start it each evening.

Wipe down the countertops after each meal and spot clean the floor when things are spilled.

The easiest way to keep the kitchen tidy is to clean as you cook.

It feels like less of a chore if you’re cleaning while you’re already up and moving rather than waiting until night time when you need clothespins to hold your eyelids open.

Living room

This is another high traffic area that is hard to keep clean. A few quick tasks will help you keep your living room presentable.

Clean any crumbs and blankets off the couch and straighten up the pillows. Wipe down the tables and organize any magazines or decor.

I have hardwood floors so I use my Swiffer in the living room as well, but if you have carpet just turn on your robot vacuum.

Any other clutter can be thrown in a closet or somewhere where nobody looks. We’ll tackle that another day!

Famous last words…

You will still have to dodge Lego’s because this daily cleaning routine will make your house look presentable not like a magazine.

It’s okay to have toys lying around.

This is a low stress routine that’s meant to be sustainable.
