Top 5 Ways to keep it clean

These are the tips I've gathered from you, dear readers -- in a roundabout way. I may have put my own little snippy spin on them because I am feeling at a loss of real, honest-to-goodness thoughts today.

To keep a clean house you must:

1. Sell the kids. Clearly this is the top priority because not only are they mostly the cause of the mess, but they are also not helping you clean it up.
2. Put the husband to work. Sure, mine already does the dishes and the laundry, but it wouldn't kill him to work in a few bathroom swishes here and there.
3. Clean while sleeping. To have a clean house at all times, we need to BE the cleaning, this means that while we sleep we should be cleaning.
4. Scrub floors at least weekly. More than two weeks is gross.
5. Pile the clutter on the stairs. Yup, just stick it all on the stairs, then when you go up, take something and shove it in the closet. Any closet.

So, there you go. LTMD's cleaning tips directly from the readers!

"...be the cleaning" LOL. Funny girl. You forgot one: unscrew all lightbulbs. After all, if dirt and clutter pile up but no one can see it..is it really there? :-)

I don't 'swish' - in the bathroom or anywhere else. i scrub. with lots of elbow grease. usually with some butt crack showing.

It's true: while you are asleep you are cleaning. The dirty house disappears altogether!

Well hell! Now I know what I've been missing...cleaning while sleeping. Duh...why didn't I think of that earlier...my house would have thanked me. =)

Sell the kids! Eureka! What about the husband too, as he comprises of 50% of the mess.
