Daily Cleaning Checklist All Moms {Working + Stay-at-Home} Can Follow

Daily Cleaning Checklist

Motherhood is overwhelming.  There, I said what we’ve all been thinking.  For me, one of the most overwhelming parts of being a mom is trying to keep my house cleaned.  When you’re a busy mama taking care of your kids, when are you supposed to find the time to clean???  The biggest piece of advice I can give you is to give up on everything be perfect.  It’s time to face the facts: your house will never be perfect with children living in it.  But it can be clean.  Really, it can!  Here is a simple daily cleaning checklist any mom can follow to keep a tidy home.


  • Make beds (if you have older kids, have them make their own)
  • Unload dishwasher
  • Wipe down bathroom sinks/toilets
  • Fluff living room pillows and fold blankets
  • Clean bathroom mirror


  • Load + run dishwasher
  • Sweep/vacuum
  • Wipe down counters
  • Pickup toys, organize into baskets for each room (have older kids put their own away)
  • Take out trash/recyclables 

Of course this won’t take care of your total cleaning workload, but it’s a start.  You can squeeze in mopping, dusting, polishing, etc. as needed and as your schedule allows.

Go ahead and print my Daily Cleaning Checklist and post it on your fridge.

    1. Nobody said it would be easy, but little tasks here and there help lighten our overall workloads!

  1. It is definitely overwhelming trying to keep a clean house with toddlers running around! This is a great list that I plan to use to help me out a little bit. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  2. Thank you! this is so great – I have been falling behind these days due to some huge work projects and my house is a wreck. I like the idea of splitting the list in morning and evening….will be trying for sure!

  3. I like this! I was raised to make the bed every morning so I keep that up but getting the dishes done? AH, sometimes I’m doing breakfast dishes while fixing dinner. The struggle!!

    1. I used to do this too. Once I started breaking up the housework load throughout the day, I’ve noticed I’m a lot less stressed!
