Raes post about cleaning under appliances made me wonder.....

How often do you clean:

Cabinets? Inside? Outside?

Shower? Shower curtain?

Windows?

Inside of fridge? Microwave? Oven?

Silverware tray?

How often do you move furniture to clean under it? Couch, beds, dresses, etc.

What about the outside of the washer and dryer (like wiping them down), inside of the washer?


Light switches?

Door knobs?

Keyboards?

Remote controls?

Yeah......I'll stop now.

How often do you clean:

Cabinets? Inside? Outside? Twice a year. They're always organized.

Shower? Shower curtain? Our shower is sprayed daily, scrubbed weekly. No shower curtain.

Windows? Twice a year. Window sills are cleaned everytime the room it's in is cleaned, so probably several times a week.

Inside of fridge? Microwave? Oven? Fridge, monthly, microwave, a few times a week (something always spills) oven, every other month.

Silverware tray? Every 6-8 weeks on average.

How often do you move furniture to clean under it? Couch, beds, dresses, etc. Couch, daily. Our bed & dresser is almost impossible to move. I use the attachment the best I can. I move my kids' furniture probably every few months.

What about the outside of the washer and dryer (like wiping them down), inside of the washer? I wipe the outsides about once a month. I don't clean the inside.


Light switches?
When someone gets sick or I see dirt.
Door knobs? Same.

Keyboards?
Same.
Remote controls? Same.

Fans are cleaned if I see dust accumulating.

Cabinets? Inside? Outside? I always organize them, but don't clean the inside often because its never really dirty. I wipe down the outsides probably once a week.

Silverware tray? Not often because it doesn't really get dirty

How often do you move furniture to clean under it? Couch, beds, dresses, etc.
Familyroom furniture I clean under every few days. Bedrooms probably every few months I move everything...the rest of the time I use the vacuum attachments and get them the best I can.

What about the outside of the washer and dryer (like wiping them down), inside of the washer? Probably once a month


Light switches? Once a month

Cabinets? Inside? Outside?
Inside, almost never (maybe twice in 7 years, unless you're talking about getting rid of the old cans and food, then every season.
Outside - probably once every 2 months, unless it needs spot cleaning.

Shower? Shower curtain?
Shower - every week
Shower curtain - as needed

Windows?
I try for every spring and fall

Inside of fridge? Microwave? Oven?
Fridge - food is every week, shelves as needed or twice a year
Oven - not nearly often enough - it's almost been a year and i need to do it again
Microwave - as needed, spot clean and then once a month

Silverware tray?
? Never? It's in a drawer, doesn't get dirty.

How often do you move furniture to clean under it? Couch, beds, dresses, etc.
Wood floors, so I swiffer under the furniture. I wish I could say once a week, but it's a lot less often than that.



What about the outside of the washer and dryer (like wiping them down), inside of the washer?
Outside - probably once a month
Inside washer - maybe once every 2-3 months

Light switches?
When I clean the room - bathrooms and kitchen every week (or more), rest of house less often

Door knobs?
Same as light switches

Keyboards?
Never

Remote controls?
Depends on colds and stuff in our house - probably once a month

Ceiling Fans?
At least twice a year. If they look bad, more often.

Ok, now I feel like I need to take a personal day to clean my house. Thanks.

How often do you clean: um.....some of you won't like my answers!

Cabinets? Inside? Outside? I organize them every few months, but rarely clean them on the inside.

Shower? Shower curtain? We don't have a shower curtain. I clean the shower every time I deep clean the bathrooms so once a month.

Windows? Ugh don't get me started on this. I HATE our windows at our current house. When we moved in, they had 30 years of filth on them because our landlord is 80 years old. I try to scrub them, but it doesn't do much good. They need to be professional cleaned...oh and we can't open them and I hate that.

Inside of fridge? Microwave? Oven? I deep clean the fridge once a month. I clean it out, but I actually remove everything and clean all of the shelves once a month. Microwave, I clean it when it gets dirty. We don't use it that often. Oven, I've never cleaned inside of our oven. It's one of those old, built in ones that hardly even works anyway.

Silverware tray? Um...never.

How often do you move furniture to clean under it? Couch, beds, dresses, etc. Everytime I deep clean the living room, I move the couches and find toys and vacuum under it. I've never moved our bed or dressers, OOPS!

What about the outside of the washer and dryer (like wiping them down), inside of the washer? I wipe them down when DH gets lint everywhere. OTher than that, I don't clean them.


Light switches? Um....never

Door knobs? When one of us gets sick.

Keyboards? I have a laptop and it hardly needs to be cleaned.

Remote controls? When one of us gets sick.

Ceiling fans? We only have two ceiling fans (the one in Brynlee's room is broken and our landlord never replaced it so it doesn't get used). I clean them when I deep clean that room so once a month.

How do y'all clean the inside of the washer? When I read some of these answers, I looked in ours & it's squeaky clean as always. Nice, shiny, & white. Never even thought to clean inside of it because I've never seen dirt, & I wash whites with bleach once a week. Figured that was enough. I run the dishwasher with a little vinegar to sanitize it every once in awhile, and that's only because sometimes I can smell odors trapped in it or the disposal from time to time.

Cabinets? Inside? Outside? Inside- hardly ever. Outside once or twice per year.

Shower? Shower curtain? Weekly. No shower curtain.

Windows? Inside as needed- 2-4 times per year. Outside, 2x per year, fall and spring

Inside of fridge? Microwave? Oven? As needed. Every month or two?

Silverware tray? Again, as needed.

How often do you move furniture to clean under it? Couch, beds, dresses, etc. Never.

What about the outside of the washer and dryer (like wiping them down), inside of the washer? Our washer has a "clean washer" cycle that I run ever few months.


Light switches? As needed. When they are dirty.

Door knobs? Never.

Keyboards? Never.

Remote controls? Never.

Ceiling Fans? We dont have any ceiling fans. The vent fans in the bathrooms get done 2 or so times per year.

Cabinets? Inside? Outside? can't remember the last time.

Shower? Shower curtain? I clean the shower every time I clean the tub, but I haven't cleaned the curtain in a long time. I routinely throw away the inside curtain and get a new one.

Windows? uh, probably last year

Inside of fridge? Microwave? Oven? fridge, about once a month. microwave whenever I notice it needs it or when something explodes in it. Oven? I got this one new last year and haven't cleaned it yet.

Silverware tray? when it looks dirty

How often do you move furniture to clean under it? Couch, beds, dresses, etc. often since we have hardwood throughout. it's easy to do.

What about the outside of the washer and dryer (like wiping them down), inside of the washer? never


Light switches? rarely

Door knobs? rarely

Keyboards? often since my skin is so dry and flaky, they get dirty/dusty quick.

Remote controls? never
