Just being nosey really and wondering how often you do the usual cleaning jobs.

Kitchen counters
Kitchen floor
Change bedding
Pulling out furniture to dust/Hoover
Skirting boards

For me it's:

Hoovering: every other day (should be every day really thanks to a black Labrador moulting all over the cream carpets)
Dusting: once a week
Toilets: daily
Bathroom: once a week
Kitchen counters: after every use
Hob: daily
Oven: once every couple of months
Change bedding: once a week
Laundry: 6-7 loads a week for everything, usually done from Thursday - Sunday
Ironing: once a week (all clothes loads are washed on same day)
Pulling out furniture to dust/Hoover: erm, once every few months
Skirting boards: once a week

Feel free to add others!

Oops, missed kitchen floor (not very good at copy and pasting on iPad) - it's done 2 or 3 times a week (I'm sure you were all dying to know!!)

Hoover once every two weeks - mini hoover/sweep daily
Dust once a week/ as I see it
Toilets - daily
ensuite- every other day main bathroom hardly used
kitchen counters after use
bedding once a week/two (sheets every week)
laundry - twice a week
Iron - once a week
Pull out furniture - every month or two
mop kitchen daily

light switches once a month
Thorough clean of laminate floors - on hands and knees - once a month - It needs it

Rearrange cupboards far too often as I never put stuff back in the right place - also hotpress needs to be tidied far too often for same reason

Window cleaner every two months - do downstairs and inside all in between myself and do mirrors at the same time.

Car - weekly (hoover/spray)

Also oven clean once a week after Sunday dinner to keep it right and carpet shampoo (vanish) stairs and front mat when I do main hovering every fortnight.

Everything on your list twice weekly except change bedding which is weekly and kitchen worktops and hobs which is daily.

Hob 2 times daily, worktops about 5 times a day but my kitchen isnt the biggest in the world, most of the jobs I do daily except ironing , laundry at least one big load aday, laminated floors once or twice a week, dusting with pledge duster every few days, deep clean bathroom 2 times a week, rugs hoovered once a day, but 3 children, 2 cats 1 dog so it would be a nightmare if I didnt do it! Windows inside and out once a week along with mirrors and other glass ie doors , pictures etc

I don't think I should post on this thread just in case anyone knows me and decides never to come to my house ever again.

Come round to mine, Miranda - you'll feel at home!

I usually think the opposite... Why can someone not find 15 minutes in their entire week to Hoover? I think it's what you're used to, what you consider important, what you don't. For example I don't watch television much, so instead if sat in front of the tv for an hour of the evening, I'll mop all my floors, clean my bathroom, iron (although I bloody hate ironing), clean the kitchen etc...

For Miranda smile

Hoovering, dusting, toilets, hob - weekly ish
Kitchen counters - after use
Oven - never blush
Kitchen floor - once or twice a month for a full mop down, do sweep as it needs it though and wipe up spills
Change bedding - fortnightly
Laundry - nearly every day
Ironing - as and when
Pulling out furniture to dust/Hoover, Skirting boards... hmmm

Why can someone not find 15 minutes in their entire week to Hoover?

To hoover a whole house once a week would not take 15 minutes. I think my 3 bed terraced house takes about 2 hours but I never do it all at once. It's not just a task I do any time due to taking into account back problems, not wanting to hoover early in the day as I wear contact lenses and the dust bothers my eyes for the rest of the day, and not wanting to hoover after the neighbour's toddler goes to bed (noise).

Hoovering once a month
Dusting now and then when I notice somewhere is dusty
Bathroom once a month
Kitchen counters once or twice daily when washing up
Hob once or twice daily when washing up
Oven hmm...
Change bedding once a month
Laundry every other day or so
Ironing 1 or 2 times weekly
Pulling out furniture to dust/Hoover Varies. Some furniture every time I hoover, others never
Skirting boards with vacuum cleaner brush once a month when hoovering

I've got no pets or young children and the house looks clean and mostly doesn't look like it needs doing. I could find time to do more but hate doing it and don't feel it needs doing more.

Sorry but bedding changed once a month shock

I'm by no means fussy about my house work but I do love a clean bed.

Everything else is daily or every other due to work and small people.

Miranda and Optomist - you can come to mine, I'd rather have a sit and natter over coffee than do housework on any day of the week smile

Oh - just read Shoewhore and Jan's posts - you are invited to mine too smile

When they are dirty/when we have visitors/almost never/too much clutter in this house to find the skirting boards.

I can't believe the amount of house work people find time to do.

Why! it will be just as dusty again tomorrow.
