How do you keep your house clean?
August 16, 2017 11:41pm CST
What kind of routine do you follow? Do you clean up as you mess up? Do you clean once a week or something like that? Do you clean once a month? Do you have a maid? What do find the hardest to keep clean? Any tips on how to keep a clean house? Is cleanliness really next to godliness and what does that mean?

I normally try to clean one thing a day and it makes it stay a lot cleaner. When I am alone the house stays a lot cleaner than when my BF is here. He is leaving again for work on another island so my house will stay really clean.
My house is dirty...and I make little effort to clean it...when I do, I get so worked up nowadays...dad does not sell anything does not throw out anything does not give away anything..he is a hoarder. This is causing me some concerns. I do believe cleanliness is godliness because irritability is lower when house is clean and when irritability is lower...people are peaceful.
Thanks for commenting on that expression that I often heard as a child. My mother was a hoarder and so I know what you mean. I am the opposite. I hate to have anything that I do not use and so I am always giving things away that I don't need or use. I like to live a simple life!
I have a good friend who vacuums and sweeps the floors, not every week, but when she has time - she has two children and a home to take a care of.. her husband is retired now, so maybe he helps a bit too.. A couple of friends have helped me to de-clutter my home, but I really have to work on that too, myself.. I love to get rid of things that I don't need.. Have to work more on getting rid of things, as they can cause a lot of stress.. I could contact an auction company who buys whole or parts of homes here, if people don't buy things from me, and we have a couple of places we can leave functioning, but things we don't need.. Every spring we can leave things we don't want, on a certain place, and some company collects them..

I pick up after myself daily but I used to use one day a week to mop, dust and all that. But this year with Tony being sick and me taking on that responsibilty I just cleaned whenever. I do not know what it means but I was raised to keep a clean house and a clean body, I try to keep a clean mind also.
I have a maid as I don't have time to clean my house at all. On weekdays I leave home early and come home late and when I do I still have online classes. Then on weekends I'm not home since I have to go to my hometown and work all weekend as well.
@1hopefulman We were taught by my parents to be entrepreneurs since we were kids. We were never trained to do any household chores. Both were entrepreneurs too. We were used to having maids and nannies around. When they passed away, we were left with businesses to take care of. I became an entrepreneur at a young age. But was never content with that. I started my own company as well.

Unfortunately I've been procrastinating lately until it gets to dangerous proportions and I can't take it anymore. Now it's a terrible sick mess and I can't stand to clean it up. But, I'm a clean person, I really am.
