Keeping a Clean House – Frugal Novice

Keeping a Clean House

If you’re like us, you have a hard time finding time to do deep cleaning around the house. For us, decluttering is a necessity for being able to, y’know, have places to sit. :) Light cleaning is a regular part of our routine, too – dusting, vacuuming, cleaning the tub, etc. When it comes to heavy duty cleaning, though, we sometimes slack. For example – with carpet cleaning, we typically have that done once a year. I always notice a huge difference between the before and after!  Now that we have our new couch we have pretty strict no-drink and no-food rules, so it’s stayed clean. But with our old couch, we needed upholstery cleaning pretty often between Josie (our dog) and the boys!

It’s been a while since I’ve mentioned it, but we’re working on remodeling our teeny-tiny master bathroom. Instead of retiling the shower, we’re working on deep cleaning the tile and grout to give it a fresh look. I really think this will be one of the heaviest-duty cleaning jobs we’ll have tackled since becoming home owners!

How often do you do deep cleaning?
