Obviously I clean as I go throughout the week. Then, on Fridays, I have a big clean up, and the entire house is cleaned at the same time, so it is all done. That way it is clean for the weekend, so it looks nice if people come over unexpectedly, or for when we have invited people over. I like to spend my weekends with my husband or family, not cleaning.
Definitely NOT!!! I just do bits( AND i do MEAN bits!!!) as I am able to manage them. I do always wash my dishes as I go, as this is just common sense. I have a super magnet on my fridge which says..'My idea of housework is sweeping the room with a glance!' I am NOT that bad ! Ha ha ha ha!!! But it is certainly not my priority!!! When I was a kid, Saturday afternoons always seemed to be cleaning time. But our lifestyles have changed so very much now.I have always found it far easier to do things as they need doing, rather than have a huge pile-up!!
I am a messy cook so need to clean every time I use flour or icing sugar. It seems to have a mind of its own... My best "trying to not make a mess" effort to date was making royal icing for the first time last year for the kids school gingerbread men. The hand mixer exploded and icing went all over the kitchen floor, cupboards, ceiling, my clothes and in my hair. It was spectacular.
