  2. Karianne says:

    Actually cleaning!

    • I hear that, sister! 😉 I think that my least favorite things have to be dishes after a big gathering or something – and always have HATED the floors!

  3. My biggest cleaning struggle is laundry…It’s just not my favorite thing to do so I tend to put it off :/

  4. My biggest challenge is dusting! I don’t have enough time to dust like it needs to be done. Plus, I hate it. Lol

  5. My biggest struggle is just doing it! I’m not a fan of cleaning LOL. Once I’m going I’m fine, but I procrastinate a lot 🙂

  6. The biggest cleaning challenge in my home is keeping up with the animal hair. It means constant swiffering, sweeping & vacuuming & with a 2-month-old that’s not always achievable!

  7. Kristy Z says:

    My biggest cleaning struggle is the bathroom, there’s four of us and a very small bathroom!

  8. Susan Lanthrip says:

    I just love your blog. We are slowly switching to homemade cleaners to make our home healthier. I would love to have your book!

  9. Natasha Bernard says:

    My biggest Cleaning struggle is keeping the carpets clean..I have 4 kids and a dog..I feel like I’m constantly cleaning them and they never loo clean enough to me.

  10. Susan Lanthrip says:

    My biggest struggle is dust!

    • I THOUGHT I WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO HATED DUSTING SO BADLY!!! This has been a watershed moment to realize that I am not totally weird for hating the chore that some women make look super easy, haha – I feel the love and support here, ladies!

  11. Dottie Burd says:

    My biggest challenge is just the everyday clutter. Everyone leaves things on every flat surface.

  12. stacy meade says:

    My biggest cleaning struggle is paper clutter – mail, school and work stuff. Also dusting!

  13. My biggest cleaning struggle is the kitchen. It is the most used place in the house and it just seems to need constant cleaning.

  14. Amber G. says:

    I’d say my biggest cleaning struggle is the bathrooms. I will clean them (counters, floors, sink) but when it comes to cleaning the shower and tub, ugh, i’d rather not. I need to remember to do it while i’m in the shower.

  15. My biggest struggle is cleaning bathrooms, and keep tidy my walk-in closet. I declutter and after a day it’s a mess again!

  16. Biggest cleaning struggle is my kitchen

  17. My biggest challenge is cleaning the bathrooms!!! I HATE cleaning bathrooms. Your schedule is making it easier….but I still hate them!! 😉

  18. My biggest cleaning struggle is maintenance. I can get the house clean but then within hours it’s a mess again. As soon as I move onto something else what I just did is ruined. Not sure why this keeps happening. Also the refrigerator. Can’t seem to keep it clean and organized.

  19. My biggest cleaning struggle is just trying to fit it all in. I feel like I am constantly behind schedule.

  20. Veronica says:

    My biggest struggle is keeping the bedrooms clean. I focus on the main house and just don’t get to the bedrooms.

  21. Cleaning itself… I feel like I never have enough time to get to it.

  22. Yvonne J. says:

    Clutter is my biggest cleaning struggle.

  23. My biggest struggle is the kitchen. It gets cluttered so quickly as its the most used and high traffic area in the house!

  24. Biggest struggle would be bathrooms for sure! I dread doing them, never feel like I get it them super clean, and then they just get dirty all over again. It seems very defeating. :/

  25. Kylie Kennedy says:

    My biggest cleaning struggle is our kids (1 & 3yr old) ..ha ha ha. No matter how much I clean they are constantly making more mess… got to love them 🙂

  26. The kitchen, it’s a tiny space with barely any counters and it never seems to stay clean for more than a day

  27. My biggest struggle is my bedroom. There are piles everywhere and it’s not the retreat I envision. It needs a complete overhaul and cleanout, and the biggest place I need help is my dresser, b/c I have jewelry I inherited from my mom I don’t know what to do with or how to store. It’s emotional clutter. Sitting in Ziploc bags.

  28. I love your blog! Our family has always tried to by green products and do our part to keep our planet clean. However, I love all your recipies for the homeade organic cleaners. I have tried many and loved them all.

    Thank you for all that you do!

  29. My biggest cleaning struggle is keeping up with 6 kids. They create so much mess and laundry! Getting them to help can be pretty hard, so I have to constantly do little cleaning bites every day or it gets overwhelming.

  30. My biggest cleaning struggles are my living room and kitchen. No matter how much time I spend de-cluttering, doing dishes, etc. as soon as I turn around there’s shoes and toys all over the living room and dishes in the sink with crumbs on the counter and floor. It never ends!

  31. My biggest cleaning struggle is my pantry.

  32. I would say consistency and keeping a house with a 2 year old boy clean and fingerprint free;)

  33. My biggest struggle is dusting. The dust is overwhelming. No matter how often I dust, it never looks like I even attempted it.

  34. My biggest cleaning struggle would have to be the FLOORS – kitchen floors and especially bathroom floors. Blech!

  35. How short it lasts. With two preschoolers and a baby. It feels like brushing teeth while eating oreos. But it makes such a difference when I do it regularly.

  36. Judee Albert says:

    My biggest cleaning challenge is clutter.

  37. My biggest struggle is the windows! I won’t be 1 minute after cleaning that there is already a hand print, or dog nose smudge back on it!

  38. My biggest cleaning struggle is myself. I am a major procrastinator.

  39. my biggest struggle is the bath tub, I just can get it white enough

  40. Everything!!! But, I guess if I have to choose it’s laundry, dishes, and clutter! With two 4-year olds, the mess and clutter can get out of control really quick!!

  41. Becky in Georgia says:

    I struggle with dusting and cleaning showers. I love your approach to a daily schedule. Thanks for sharing your successful ideas!

  42. The image post is not working. Pinterest keeps saying invalid image. 🙁

  43. My biggest struggle is finding the time to clean!

  44. I dont like to clean so it is hard to get motivated!

  45. My biggest cleaning struggle is the kids rooms. I hate cleaning them and it is a complete power struggle when it comes to getting them to do it.

  46. My biggest struggle is cleaning my mirrors! I can’t seem to get them clean without smears and smudges!

  47. My biggest cleaning issues is the bathroom. I have 2 girls and my husband to clean up after. They tend to leave everything a mess. Also I live in fl so the hard water makes the toilets a mess with mildew.

  48. Amy Dikeman says:

    My biggest cleaning struggle is bedrooms, they always seem to
    Be a mess and I just can’t keep them organized.

  49. Keeping at it. Doing something every single day. If I don’t the house spirals out of control.

  50. My biggest struggle is motivation and just starting the cleaning process. I need help!

  51. My biggest cleaning challenge is certainly the floors. We have laminate throughout our home. Before I had kids, I thought the floors were clean so long as I didn’t see the dirt. When my daughter started crawling I was appalled! She always had dirty knees and hands – how embarrassing!

  52. Maureen Newman says:

    My biggest cleaning struggle is getting rid of clutter. No matter how hard I try I don’t seem to be able to clear it.

  53. My biggest cleaning struggle is the master bathroom! I always push it to the bottom of the list and then it is a nightmare to clean.

  54. Jeanie K says:

    My BIGGEST cleaning struggle would be my curio cabinet. The backing is all mirror, the front, side doors, and shelves are all glass. The glass shelves are extremely heavy glass and they are hard to put into the narrow doors. The inside glass and mirrors are hard to reach in to clean b/c of the narrowness of the whole thing.

    I leave it til last to clean every time.

  55. the vacuum, lugging it up and down the stairs just isn’t fun. It’s heavy, loud and just a pain. So I always hate vacuum day.

  56. My biggest cleaning struggle is the bathroom!

  57. My biggest cleaning struggle is keeping up with a routine! I go along pretty well until our family’s schedule changes (which it does every couple of months) and messes up my routine. It is a constant struggle.

  58. My biggest challenge is getting the motivation to dust!

  59. Erin K. says:

    Any time I can clean and not cause further harm with the use of chemicals, I feel good on the inside AND outside. Thank you!

  60. With 2 boys and my husband, my biggest cleaning struggle is the bathroom! I dread the bathroom!!

  61. Jessica C. says:

    I have trouble cleaning the floor in my kitchen. It always looks dirty and I don’t want to use harsh chemicals because I have 2 lovely cats!

  62. April H says:

    I would love to get my hands on this. 2 kids, 2 cats and 1 husband make for lots of cleaning.

  63. Sonya B. says:

    DOG HAIR! It’s a good thing Ilike to vacuum!

  64. My biggest struggle is time. Too much to do. Too little time.

  65. It’s hard to clean while keeping up with 2 kids under 2.

  66. Jessica Aherin says:

    My struggle is getting anything done with my little ones around, especially floors!

  67. Jean Moran Leone says:


  68. My biggest struggle is the bathroom! Can’t see through those shower doors!

  69. Susan Wilson says:

    My biggest cleaning challenge is finding the time to clean. I work full time and have a 16 year old and an 11 year old. I am not a morning person, so I don’t get up early to clean. In the evenings most nights I have to choose between cleaning and exercising. On the weekends I get lazy!! There, I said it! So I guess it’s really a time management problem.

  70. My biggest cleaning struggle is just making myself do it. Once I get home from work I usually don’t want to do anything but relax!

  71. Rhawnieb says:

    Keeping on top of it

  72. My biggest cleaning struggle is keeping up with the daily little stuff. 2 toddlers at home feels like small tornados running around making messes faster than I can clean.

  73. Shauna'h says:

    My biggest cleaning struggle is sticking to a daily routine. I work full-time outside the home and have 18 month old twins, so by the time the kids are in bed I’m exhausted with dinner to clean up after, toys to pick up, exercise to try to fit in, etc. and have a hard time making myself exert the energy required to deal with those things!

  74. Finding a cleaning schedule that I can stick to!

  75. Love your blog! I’m sure your book has lots of great info! Thank you!

  76. Terri B says:

    We are re-habbing our house. My struggle is the dust, and things being moved around and cannot find them.

  77. heather says:

    My biggest struggle is simply having enough time and energy to clean after all the picking up, putting away, and tidying is done!

  78. My biggest cleaning struggle is finding time to do it! Between a busy work schedule, a husband, a one year old, and a big house, I hardly ever feel like I have even made a dent in all the cleaning that needs to be done.
    I recently found your site and I am OBSESSED! LOL I have tried your calendar (Monday and Tuesday), failed miserably, but am not discouraged. I know I will get the hang of it… thank you for having your site and your knowledge as a resource for us frazzled, new homemakers who are still trying to figure things out 🙂

  79. Stephanie says:

    I am newer to your site (a few weeks). My biggest struggle is that we accumulate too much junk…..and our family tends to just leave things laying around and accumulate clutter. It makes it hard to block time to clean up all the clutter!

  80. Molly J says:

    My biggest struggle is making and KEEPING a routine. I am so tired of cleaning that I just wait until the end of the week and do it all at once. If I spread out the work, I feel like I am CONSTANTLY cleaning, and not able to enjoy the fruits of my labors because someone comes behind me and just messes it right up.

  81. Just did Spring Cleaning in my kitchen and it looks great. Love how the fridge shines.

    Biggest challenge: Staying on top of clutter.


  82. Love being able to mix up my own cleaners at home. They are usually way better than the expensive store bought ones. Look forward to finding some new favorites in this book.

  83. elicia omann says:

    So interested in organic cleaning products. Just started some serious research to rid my home of Windex and Mr. Clean 🙂

  84. My biggest struggle lately is just getting it done. I love all your daily tips and suggestions they really help! I’m so excited to see your new book! Congratulations!

  85. Elaine Hankins says:

    Windows – we live on a farm and lots of dust keep our windows dirty! But, I wouldn’t change living here!

  86. Jackie McNutt says:

    Keeping up with my tile floors

  87. Kimberly says:

    Embarrassingly enough, my biggest cleaning struggle is just figuring out where to start. Sometimes, it’s all so overwhelming that I can’t focus on where to even begin. The kid clutter is out of control! I am the queen of “hiding” things in boxes & baskets & tucking things in temporary spots at the last minute to give the appearance of clean. I would really like to get organized & clean once & for all this year. Your checklists have helped me in the past. Excited about your new book!

  88. My biggest cleaning struggle is getting to the little nitty-gritty areas (baseboards, corners, underneath spots) that I forget about during routine cleaning but that become an issue over time.

    So excited for you!

  89. Can’t wait for the book to come out!

  90. Jeanna M says:

    My biggest challenge in cleaning is my health. I have times when I get so behind because of not being able to do it. I am concentrating on getting a routine down so that I can do what I can and if not try to get help with the others.

  91. clutter is a problem and saving things “in case” is another problem. I keep telling my family that when they clean they should pretend they are moving to a smaller house. Just not happening though. Help!

  92. My biggest struggle is the granite countertops and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, they both always have fingerprints and water spots no matter how much I clean them.

  93. Staying on top of it! I feel like I have to spend one whole day a week just cleaning.

  94. Floors. I never seem to be able to stay on top of keeping the floors clean.

  95. Thanks for the opportunity.

  96. Laura C says:

    Doing a little cleaning each day so that it doesn’t get overwhelming…and that happens fast!

  101. keeping my new home clean with two young kids running around. we are still settling into our new home figuring out where best to place our stuff and adjusting to life with a new baby.

  102. My biggest cleaning struggle is that I don’t like to clean when anyone else is around. It’s my de-stresser and I just like to have the time to do it at my own pace without anyone getting in the way or offering to do part of it and then doing a poor job of it (control freak here). But my boyfriend, whom I live with, doesn’t work the winter season and has been around ALL THE TIME and doesn’t really do any cleaning *SIGH*

    • P.S. I was the first person in the whole Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh system to order your book– that’s how excited I was. But now I definitely need to own a copy! Three weeks with this gem isn’t enough!

    I think it would be actually getting started. Once I do, I’m fine. The actual getting stuff out & getting on with it is the difficult bit.

  132. keeping my island clear

  133. Missa D says:

    My biggest cleaning struggle is motivating myself.
    I have this idea that using natural cleaners and products will make me feel like a better housekeeper, but I can’t always use homemade cleaners and I don’t always clean as thoroughly as I’d like, so I feel as though I’ve failed before I’ve even begun. Following your page has helped me turn my tasks into bite-sized bits that I can handle.
    I would LOVE to win a copy of your book. A paper copy, to me, is just so much more tangible and accessible.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  135. Shannon says:

    I’d have to say my biggest cleaning struggle would be that my house is somewhat old and was neglected previously, therefore there is dirty grout, broken tile, rotting wood, bad plumbing, etc. Some of the simplest cleaning jobs can take forever! Often I find myself avoiding starting a task for fear it’ll become an all day thing. Your site has given me practical tips to just START it. Even my husband has been impressed with motivation to clean!

  139. I am looking forward to reading this book!

  142. Margaret says:

    My biggest struggle is ”ORGANIZING AND KEEPING IT ORGANIZED”.

  149. My biggest cleaning struggle is actually finding the place to start and finish. I am easily discouraged by all that I actually need to get done that I don’t seem to get it all done. I will pick things up in one room and carry them to the next room to be put away and then start a project in that room.

  150. The shower… I HATE it!!

  151. Clutter! I’m constantly picking up after the family. getting deep cleaning done and budget planning for grocery shopping gets put on the back burner.

  179. As a disabled mom of a 4 year old and caretaker of the house of a family of 4 who cannot seem to keep anything clean, I am always looking for better ways to keep my house tidy. This would be the biggest help to me. I never seem to have enough help to stay ahead of the mess, and I hate it. And the rest of my family just doesn’t SEE the dirt, and constantly asks me to tell them what to do, yet yell at me for nagging. I swear I’m going crazy! I love your blog, as I am a holistic mama.

  180. My biggest struggle – the entire house! The non-stop battle between three kids 6 and under vs. the house vs. mommy’s time just seems to get me nowhere………

  181. Biggest struggle is getting it all done! The kids (and Dad truth be told) don’t know how to clean up after themselves so it’s a never ending battle! (P.S. your cleaning schedule has vacuuming floors one day then washing them the next … how do you keep them clean enough to the next day to not have to vacuum them again??? Haven’t figured this one out 🙂 )

    One of my biggest cleaning struggles is keeping up with sweeping and washing the floors. Here in Florida, we seem to have an unbelievable amount of dust (and even sand) constantly landing on the floor (among other things) and it kills my back to do all that needs to be done to my satisfaction. Wish there were an easier method.

  253. My cleaning struggle would be to balance it all! I homeschool my children and I’m also a blogger, so sometimes it feels like cleaning is the last thing on my list!

  261. Stephanie says:

    My biggest struggle is just finding the time to do it!

  262. My biggest cleaning struggle is time management. Just taking the time to remember to clean. Sometimes I look at something and think, “Why is this so dirty? I just cleaned it …” And then I realize that it’s been much longer than I originally thought.

  263. My biggest challenge is tri-fold:getting rid of/keeping up with all the dog hair, being consistent, and once I have everything clean it’s beginning to get dirty again.

  264. the bathroom

  265. Tracey Hall says:
