For Those Who Clean House

Gotta say, today I am feeling Mavelous Dahling....fantastic. Stomach feels fine, I feel rested and in good spirits.

So.....thought I would give our house a good cleaning, or at least as good a cleaning as I can. Starting with the living room....

It's now all vacuumed, dusted, sills wiped down, tables cleaned...even slowly rearranged the furniture with the Gman's help.

I vacuumed off all the furniture, took the cushions off and vacuumed underneath....then....I started thinking.

How often do I do this? Actually take the cushions off the couch and vacuum underneath there....hmmmm

How often do YOU do this? DO you do this? Now I'm curious....I gotta know...maybe a new poll? What do u think?

Answer honestly and then I'll know if I'm totally off the rails and beyond any possible help! I'm counting on ya!
Question for you.... Sphere: Related Content

Annie, I was talking to a friend once and she told me about cleaning off the tops of her doors. I just kind of stared at her. Then I nodded to pretend that this item was on my repertoire of cleaning as well. (The tops of the doors? It never even occurred to me; my GOD they must be FILTHY!).

Anyway, I do under my cushions whenever I stick my hand down there, searching for the dvd remote, and it comes back covered with crumbs and flecks of popcorn. That'd be about every six weeks. Maybe.

The couch gets done once a year if it is lucky. The tops of doors ... about the same.

About every 2 months? My couch is a used couch from good will. I have found socks, a lighter, 2 nail files, a big nail clipper and some money.

I have never ever cleaned the top of a door. I didn't know that they needed it! I can't see that high.

Only when i notice that there is stuff under them when I straighten the cushions! Sad, but true... top of doors usually when I am dusting, which I don't do often enough...

Under the cushions, every few months or when the grandchildren have lost a toy or I've lost a knitting needle. The tops of the doors on the other hand are cleaned in November when I put up garlands over them for the Christmas season, sad but true.

Under the cushions whenever it strikes me to do them. Not very often. Door tops, When I deceid to repaint a room or we move.

Well, we have a dog who has a 'spot' on the couch and we live on a farm so a fair amount of dirt makes it into our house. So, do the full clean - take the cushions off, etc. probably about once a month - sometimes it might be two months and sometimes, if I have company who will be sleeping on said couch, it might be a lot sooner... whenever I do it, there always seems to be alot of dirt in there!

Top of doors? Um... never.

Don't the tops of doors get dusted when you close the door?
