It’s December and you still have time to start your new year off clean, with our downloadable Cleaning Calendar. By the end of January, you’ll be sitting pretty, pretty clean that is. Week by week, room by room, our Cleaning Calendar divides your chores so you can live your best dirt-conquering life.
Week 1 (Jan 1 - 4): Outdoor Chores
Week one is a short one and we’re betting you don’t plan to do any cleaning on January 1st. Ring in the new year with a rest and spend Thursday-Saturday on outdoor chores like raking the leaves or clearing snow from your sidewalks. Prune your trees and on Saturday clean up your garden and try your hand at planting some bulbs a little late in the season.
Week 2 (Jan 5 – 10): Kitchen Cleanup
Cabinets and counters and appliances, oh my! Our first full week of the new year! If that doesn’t get you excited about kitchen cleaning, we don’t know what will. On the list for week two are things like cleaning out your refrigerator. How many leftovers have you stocked up on over the holidays?
BETTER LIFE’s Kitchen-Cleaning Companions:
For appliance compliance use Kitchen and Bath Scrubber.
Wood cabinets need Wood Polish.
Granite and Stone Cleaner is countertop-catharsis.
Adore your kitchen floors with Floor Cleaner.
A Different Kind of Weekend Holiday (Jan 11 – 12)
You may have noticed we’ve left a Christmas-tree-sized elephant in your home. That’s right, this is our Holiday weekend, a.k.a. time to take the Christmas lights down before the neighbors start gossiping.
Week 3 (Jan 13 – 18): Living Clean in the Living Room
Now that holiday décor is out of the way, you can actually see your windowsills and tabletops…and they’re dirty. Who knows how many people have sat on your couch in the last month? From rug scrubbing, to TV screen clearing, to windowsill wiping, by the end of the week you’ll be ready to rest easy for the next movie night.

Stain and Odor Eliminator, your rug and couch cushion life-saver.

Window-washing Glass Cleaner.
From the tablet on the couch to the TV on the wall, Screen Cleaner cleans them all.
For anything else you might need to give an extra scrub, try All-Purpose Cleaner.
Week 4 (Jan 19 – 25): Scrub the Tub and More
We put it off as long as we could but you’ll have to clean the bathroom eventually. The tub, tiles, toilet, and other things that don’t start with ‘t’ won’t clean themselves. One bathroom-related task a day just might help keep the germs away.

Toilet Bowl Cleaner: it’s right there in the name.

Week 5 (Jan 26 – 30): Bedroom Basics
Nothing beats sleeping in clean sheets! We saved the best for last so you can have a nice rest on the last day of the month. Closet cleanout and dresser dusting. A good bedroom cleaning is just what you need for a good night’s sleep and once this week is over you can rest easy knowing you’ve completed your New Year’s Cleaning Calendar!
