What’s Your Clean Cycle?

Did you know that I love to clean?  It’s one of the ways I like to de-stress and let go of all the stuff that bottles up inside of me. I like some chores more than others, like vacuuming. Dusting, not so much. And, there’s nothing like a pretty, shiny, clean sink. Who’s with me?

So, you’ve probably already guessed that I don’t have a cleaning crew or person who comes on a regular basis with a magic duster to make my home all spiffy. And, my hubby doesn’t relish that role, so guess who gets to manage the cleaning of Casa Deb Lee? Yeah, that would be me. I’m not complaining, but it is one more thing for me to add to my to do list.

When you’re busy, cleaning – even when you love to do it – can be one of the things that gets shoved aside until company comes over! To avoid the mad stash and dash, I do a few things.

Clean All The Time

It sounds crazy, right? …to clean all the time? It’s probably not what you think. I’m not constantly wearing yellow rubber gloves with broom in hand, but, when I see things I take care of them right away. So, if I notice a piece of paper on the floor, I pick it up. When I’m leaving my car, I take all the garbage out – even if I have to make a second trip to do it. If there’s a stain on the counter, I wipe it up straight away.  Frequency: Several times/day

Clean by Room

I tend to focus my primary cleaning activities on the rooms that I spend most of my time in, like the living room, kitchen, and master bedroom. That said, I’m also fanatic about having a clean bathroom. So, I mix my “clean all the time” method in each of those rooms often. That means that I’m not deep cleaning, but focusing on those areas first and regularly. Frequency: Daily or every other day

Clean by Day

I don’t have a special day for “real” cleaning, but I will choose a day that I’m working from home or not working at all. Then, I build specific cleaning tasks into my schedule.  Sometimes I add “clean by day” + “clean by room” to keep a particular area in check.  Frequency: Weekly | Day: Random

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any techniques to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
