30 Day Cleaning Challenge

If you’re looking for ways to keep your house clean, I’m here to help. I created a simple 30 Day Cleaning Challenge for families to use while trying to keep up with the routine house cleaning tasks. It’s not always easy to fit in massive cleanings, so I felt creating a challenge would be easier.

30 Day Cleaning Challenge

I’m all about creating a 30 day cleaning challenge that is doable and practical. I don’t need a laundry list of things that are going overwhelm me. I just need a cleaning challenge that is doable for your family to help out with and also practical enough to actually do.

One of the big holds up for me when it comes to cleaning is that it’s a never ending process. We have 7 people in our family so I’m VERY aware of how crazy and chaotic the house can get. I prefer to keep my house clean, but with 4 teen sons it’s not always possible.

Things to clean in your kitchen

The reason a 30 Day Cleaning Challenge was needed was because I was sick and tired of trying to do it all on my own. I needed help and I needed my family members to chip in and each take on a duty. By creating this cleaning challenge, each day (1) of us takes on a duty. At the end of the month it turns out to only be 4 challenges for our family.

Simple, right? Yes. And it makes my life easier, which is very helpful! The last thing my kids want is mommy feeling stressed and overwhelmed.

Cleaning Routine

I’ve created this 30 day cleaning challenge to start at ANY time you need it to start. If it’s mid-month, that’s fine. If it’s at the beginning or end of the month, that’s fine. Just know that you can start this whenever you need to with your family.

I created (2) different layouts for you, so go with the one that jumps out at you first. I wanted the colors to be happy, bright colors because cleaning isn’t exactly a HAPPY thing (right?). So whatever one speaks to you, jump at it and print it out.

I just know I needed something beyond just the spring, too. It’s not just all about the spring cleaning, it’s about the year round cleaning, too.

It’s important to stop and think about these kinds of questions – what cleaning chore do you dread? What cleaning task do you usually assign to your kids? How long does it usually take you to clean a room in your house? Do you usually have help while you’re cleaning? All of these things come in to play when you’re cleaning.

I just wanted to help YOU out! A 30 day cleaning challenge is always a good way to drum up cleaning excitement and try to get everyone on board. You can even add some prizes to the mix if you think it would help, too.

Listen – as parents we’re all in this together! We need to share what works and what doesn’t work. I think it’s important to be honest and real and up front with what kinds of things work for YOU and your family. You never know when you’ll get a burst of inspiration from something that someone says!
