Homemakers' Haven: Detailed Cleaning List for Week Three

This is our Detailed Cleaning List for Week Three.

Remember, if your home is still cluttered, you are not supposed to do detailed cleaning yet, just declutter
for 15 minutes a day in this area this week.

Do not get blown away by how big this detailed cleaning list is! We do not do all of it in one week. Each month we focus on a different room, and only do just a little in the other rooms.

After a few months it will be very easy! Baby steps! It did not get dirty overnight and it is not going to get clean in a day!

Here's a helpful hint for ALL of our Detailed Cleaning Lists:
Copy and paste each list into a word processing document.
Print each week on a separate sheet or sheets of paper. Sometimes the Detailed Lists will take several pieces of paper!  
You may need to add a few of your own details that apply to your home, and that's OK.  This is YOUR list for YOUR home.  What's written here are just guidelines.
