How do you keep your cleaning routine fresh?

I like to clean, but I admit - I'm bored with my routine. I usually do a different chore every day, and that's getting old. I'm tired of vacuuming every Tuesday, dusting before work on Wednesday and scrubbing the bathrooms Saturday. How do you divide chores so the work is fresh and exciting? Maybe exciting's not the word, but I do want to have fun while I clean instead of dreading it.

Throughout my experience, for those who I have cleaned houses with I focus on detailed task, very active in my workplace even when owners are not in the house.

I enjoy cleaning as well. Its great exercise for me and also knowing that you've helped someone's life a little bit easier. I change the routine up a bit and like listening to music. Plug in and go.. I worked for years in corporate world and I thought about going back, but I don't think I would now.

If you like enjoy listening to music, try tuning into some good music while cleaning. When I clean my home, I usually either put a favorite CD, play one of my favorite records from the past, or turn on one of the cable TV music channels. For me, it makes cleaning fun.

Get rid of the same old routine... Clean each day based on wat needs the attention most... you may find that by insisting people remove shoes b4 entering your home will cut down on some chores. Start timing urself to c if u can do it faster than u did b4. Don't set days to do certain chores set aside a time to walk thru ur home and observe...you will find that some days your home needs no attention or atleast very little
