TL;DR back ground, but is relevant to my questions.|
I'm so annoyed and fed up with having to detail clean my house almost daily. I'm about to start back to full time school on Jan 10th AND possibly a job next week. At this point, while having no school/work, I'm already burnt out on cleaning the house and making sure everything is done. Help??
1) We have a large open living room/dining room/kitchen/foyer with a L wall as support. The living room/dining room area has dark brown laminate wood flooring and the kitchen/foyer has light tile. We have a sliding glass door at the back of the house, in the dining room; the front door, as well as the door from the garage in the foyer. It's a one story house and we have 2 dogs and 3 adult humans living here. All of these factors are making it to where I'm having to dust, vacuum, sweep, and steam mop daily and it STILL manages to look dusty with in a few hours. Do you have any secrets to keeping your house clean from dust/dirt/hair/etc?
2) How do you split up chores in your household?
3) Do you have any cleaning tips/sites/blogs that you frequent? Can you link me?
ETA @ 5:26pm EST: I guess it would have been helpful to mention that I have allergies and so keeping the house as dust free as possible is fairly important as it helps me not scratch my eyes out. My house is FAR from perfectly clean all the time, but I guess it's sticking out so much more to me right now because we're throwing a NYE party and so I'm trying to get it all nice for that. AND stressing about starting the new semester + job. UGH.
