It doesn't "wash" the floor. Any wet messes I wipe up by hand, and the give the floor a go over every so often with the Dyson.

They do have fans now, though. I SO want one. Like, I'd-kill-someone-for-one want one.

Actually, I want one for every room of our brownstone. I might have to take a loan out to get that done, though.

1. mop the floors
About every two months...if I had it my way it would be never. I'd rather clean the toilet.

2. scrub bathroom fixtures
Faucet and such: weekly-ish. Lights and switches: pretty much never.

3. clean the windows
Just about never...only when they get smudged.

4. sweep the porch/patio/garage
About every two weeks in summer; approx monthly in winter.

5. clean out fridge and freezer
Like wash it out? Monthly

6. dust ceiling fans
Never have. Guess I should...we just don't ever use them.

7. wash the cars
Maaaaaaybe every two months, but def. directly after a major road trip.

You'd think I'd do these things more often with our dust mite allergy issues.

Oh OK that is disappointing, I was excited to check out the new technology.

I always vacuum before mopping, but I do prefer to mop once a month at least after vacuuming because the vacuum only really gets rid of loose particles, not stuck on dirt.

Guess I will be sticking with my enjo mop for now. It's a good one because you don't need to use a bucket.

1. Bathrooms, once a week; kitchen, as needed (usually every couple of days).
2. Once a week.
3. DP's job - once a month (I'm allergic to dust/dust mites).
4. Again, DP's job - whenever he gets around to it (It's not that big of a deal to us.)
5. The fridge, almost every day; the freezer, once a month.
6. DP's duty again (see my aforementioned dust allergy). Every couple of weeks.
7. Oh, God. When it rains? The dog gets a bath every week, though. Does that count?

1. mop the floors - Once to twice a week depending on need. I spot clean daily with the roomba and scooba.

2. scrub bathroom fixtures - Once a week.

3. clean the windows - We have a lot of windows in our house so this gets done seasonally.

4. sweep the porch/patio/garage - Once a month and/or when we have company coming.

5. clean out fridge and freezer - Fridge gets done once a month and the freezer gets done seasonally.

6. dust ceiling fans - Once a month

7. wash the cars - DH's chore... if it was up to me it would be done maybe twice a year lol... but DH is serious about his car so this gets done weekly without fail.

You guys make me feel better! I have terrible morning sickness right now and Ive felt really negative about myself since I can't do much without getting sick. My hubby doesn't mind and told me to not clean and just take care of myself but it gets to me. My two girls seems to be whirlwinds. When Im not sick I have a pretty set cleaning schedule heres what I do:
1. mop the floors- weekly, kitchen every few days. Im a nut about a clean kitchen, its something that drives me nuts when its dirty.
2. scrub bathroom fixtures- weekly. Even the light fixtures. Im allergic to dust and mold so I need to keep things clean otherwise Im miserable
3. clean the windows- inside, weekly. My girls love to help mommy clean the windows so they do a LOT of this. Outside, almost never. We live in a 9 story apartment building, I can't think of a safe way to clean the outside so it never gets done.
4. sweep the porch/patio/garage- every couple of months for the little balconies we have. We don't have a porch, patio or garage
5. clean out fridge and freezer- I go through and throw out old food weekly, wipe down about once a month. I never take it apart and really deep clean it. I think I did it once when I first moved in and once right before I had DD2 when I was nesting like crazy (I even took every drawer and shelve out of the kitchen and scrubed them.. I went crazy nesting, I hope I get some of that energy again)
6. dust ceiling fans- weekly, dust and mold grows like a fungus over here! Its horrible. Even weekly the mold gets bad.
7. wash the cars- Never, ever. We have owned the car we have for over 3 years and its been washed once. It rains buckets over here so I figure the rain washes it for us.

Since morning sickness hit I haven't done pretty much any cleaning except the bare minimum (dishes and laundry mostly) and even that is to much at times. Im about 11 weeks right now so Im praying it eases up soon so I can go back to feeling like myself again.
