Hi all,

Just wondering what everybody's top 3 household jobs are, ones you HAVE to keep on top of above anything else!?!

Mine would be:
1) Cleaning the dishes
2) Clothes washing
3) Sweeping the kitchen/dining room floor

So it wouldn't be something like cleaning the windows for me!

Mine are:

1) the dishes
2) kitchen surfaces
3) bleach the loo

Hi lucytails

Do you bleach the toilet daily? Also when, at night before bed?

lucytails Sun 23-Dec-12 22:53:41

I normally put it down before i jump in the shower in the morning and then flush it away when i'm finished. It only has about ten minutes or so but that keeps it looking clean with little effort, and being a microbiologist i know thats ample enough time to kill all the germs too.

Ah right less than ten minutes to kill germs. Why do they always say leave overnight then?

oh and mine are:

1 - dishes
2 - kitchen
3 - bathroom

Lucytails, Ooo so if you DO leave it over night does that have any reverse effects or doesn't make difference?

1. Laundry (I don't have dirty laundry basket - everyone brings down laundry at least daily and sorts it into laundry bags of whites, lights, brights and darks. I put a load on as soon as there is enough in a bag/then dry/iron)
2. Kitchen - Dishes (mainly dishwasher loading/unloading/odd bit of hand washing and wiping surfaces) and emptying bin (wich is done at least once a day and combined with de-pooing the lawn)
3. Whole house tidy (everything where is should be/beds made etc)

I find if I can keep on top of these three then the other daily/weekly/monthly jobs get done more often with less mental effort!

Clean kitchen worktops/sink

Empty bins

Clean litter tray

If those things are not done, the rest all goes to shit.

AppleAndBlackberry Sun 30-Dec-12 19:09:20

Keeping downstairs tidy
Kitchen surfaces

Do the above every day and also washing, hoovering a couple of times a week and I'm fairly lax about other things.
