I’m pretty surprised that I have 5 stars for cleanliness as my house is 100 years old, and far from sparkling! Sometimes it won’t matter how clean it is, some will see old as worn and therefore unclean.
But I do keep it pretty ship shape if I say so! My philosophy is “a little a lot”. I’m time poor with a job and a 1yo so I don’t have days where I can get in for a few hours for regular deep cleans all at once.
I do all the required things: dishes beds, bathroom etc, including a wipe over of every furniture surface inside and out, switches/handles, fridge, oven and microwave, and then after each guest I do one or two “extras”- things that aren’t so noticable to be a bother, but at the same time when noticed really promote a sense of cleanliness.
Eg - wipe all skirting boards, or clean windows, or wash out bins, dust fans, put oil traps through dishwasher, hose stairs and driveway etc etc.
In my own house when I used to work nightshift and was a complete zombie I used to put all the spring cleaning tasks in a jar and every day or so pluck one out to complete and transfer to another jar, and so on. It was motivating, satisfying and the tasks got done!
