Today I am going to be sharing with you a free printable weekly cleaning checklist I created for you! I’m so excited!
Free Printable Weekly Cleaning Checklist
I’m always asked the question, “How do you do it all?”
Let me start by saying that I do NOT do everything. There are many days when my house is a mess and you can’t even get into my laundry room because of the piles of clothes. But, with that being said, I try to stay as organized as possible to help me get through each day. I am very detailed and I love having a list of daily tasks.
With three young children, two dogs, and working from home as a blogger, I’ve definitely been struggling to keep my house clean. It’s hard to set aside time just for cleaning. So to help me stay on top of my home management, I’ve created this totally adorable weekly cleaning checklist. It’s like a chore chart for adults! 🙂
If you’re like me and have a hard time keeping your house clean, then you’ll love using a cleaning schedule. There are so many times that I go about cleaning a particular room and then get distracted. This new printable will help me focus on each cleaning task.
I have divided the weekly cleaning checklist into separate days, excluding weekends. I combined Saturday and Sunday because I personally try not to clean on the weekend unless I have to.
I’ve created a blank weekly cleaning checklist so you can complete each of the tasks you want to do. The purpose is to create a schedule that works for you. (Here are more cleaning checklists for you to choose from.) Even though I do a load of laundry a day, you may not, so I didn’t want to fill it up for you. Your cleaning schedule will be unique to your lifestyle.
Once you start using it, you will start to find a good cleaning routine. You can use this checklist on a monthly basis to complete the same cleaning tasks on the same days. For example, Mondays can be reserved for cleaning the toilets, windows, or even changing the bedding. This way you are cleaning each element at least once a week.

To help you get started, I’ve made a list of items you can add to each day of the week:
organize the pantry
Clean cabinets, window sills, door handles, light switches, and baseboards
clean the sink
Disinfect light switches and door handles.
Clean baseboards and cabinets
Make the beds
Clean and disinfect your fan, blinds, window sills, door handles, and baseboards
Clean window frames, door handles, light switches, baseboards, and remote controls
Some of my daily tasks include:
Make the beds
Clean kitchen counters
empty garbage can
Change of towels and cleaning cloths
remove the clutter
To get started, print out this blank weekly cleaning schedule and figure out the chores you want to clean each day. You may find it easier to break it down by each room in your house. For example, you can clean your bathrooms on Tuesday and your kitchen on Wednesday. This is one of the reasons I left this printable blank. It will be easier for you to write a schedule that works best for you and your family.
I can’t wait to get started on this cleaning checklist myself. Not only will my house be so much cleaner, but I love using printables. Win win!
If you are looking for a complete planner to organize your whole life, here is a great one.
