Come Clean Challenge

Happy New Year and 2016! I’d love to invite you to participate in the COME CLEAN Challenge this January – it’s the perfect way to channel that desire to clean and organize everything. I’ve coordinated the challenge with my cleaning routine to make it super easy to implement and of course it’s complete with room for catching up each week. Want to join me?

Come Clean Challenge - Clean Your Home and Get Into a Cleaning Routine - Clean Mama

The cleaning theme for 2016 is COME CLEAN.  Every month I have a FREE cleaning calendar (grab January’s here) – add that to the challenge for January and you’ll be well on your way to a clean house, a new routine, and habits that will follow you all year long.

Come Clean 2016 - Clean Mama


  • Print off your worksheet and calendar for the month – prepare yourself and get ready to get your home clean, tidy, and organized.
  • We’ll start off with 3 days to get rid of clutter – I’ll have a post on December 31st with some quick tips to get rid of clutter in a hurry.
  • Then, each Monday in January I’ll give you a focus space for the week – you can see them on the calendar.  On that same post on Monday, I’ll give you a handful of tips and posts to refer to during the week.  Work at your own pace, do what you can and worry about progress, not completion at this point.  Each daily task corresponds with my cleaning routine so you’ll be working smarter, not harder 🙂
  • Follow along (subscribe in the sidebar) for motivational posts and tips to keep up with the daily and weekly tasks. I also post daily reminders on Instagram and Facebook and have a new private Facebook group too called Homekeeping Society (just ask to join and I’ll add you) – it’s great for support and to meet others that are following along with my cleaning routine.

  1. I can’t get the links to print.

  2. Clicking on worksheet link tskes me same pagr. Worksheet does not load

  3. When I click on the Come Clean Link it just brings me back to this page… anyone else having issues?

  4. THIS is the best idea yet! Thanks!

  5. I’m really excited to participate! I think this will help get me motivated to jump on getting the house back together and organized! Thanks so much!!!

  6. Looks awesome! Hopefully I will be able to do at least some of the tasks, and if not now, it will be a good starting point for later.

  7. Thanks so much for putting all of this together! I can’t wait to get started!

  8. Is this COME CLEAN 2016 assuming we have Christmas decorations all down and put away?

    Thank you for your response and all you do to helps those of us who are Domestically Challenged.

    • The first 3 days are decluttering – I am guessing a lot of people will use that time to take down Christmas decorations 🙂

  9. I’m also joining. I will need some of your advice etc. Quite frankly, in December, I did my best but as my sister is sick with cancer, I neglected my house a little. Then, it was Xmas time and family gatherings… The house is not a mess but still, I want to keep it clean and tidy.

    Thanks again. And I’m looking forward for your e-mails and reminders.

    Happy New Year.

  10. Love the printable! It’s cheery and inviting on my clipboard! A great motivator to break steps down! Thank you so much for sharing!

  11. I CANNOT get to the place where I can print the kitchen-cleaning challenge! The site keeps going back to the page I’ve been at before.

  12. Catherine says:

    How do i get to a page that will let me print this? I click the links but it just asks me to put it in my cart? I am new to this site I’m loving it but I’m a little lost on the process. please help! 🙂

    • You need to put them in your cart and then when you check out you’ll see them on your download screen and they’ll be emailed to you 🙂

  13. I’m going to join to. I already am on Homekeeping society and trying my best to keep up. It is difficult because everyone is home daily,(as I homeschool and my husband works next store) and I get the bare minimum help from all who live here. so its like taking one step forward and 2 backward. Just needing some encouraging words to keep it up.

  14. ToTheMoonandBack says:

    Cannot print the January page, the links only take you to the same page or another page. I also tried the link you provided in the comments above and that did not work. Would love to join:)

  15. Hello there!

    I wanted to let you know that I added a link from my website to your free printables — I’m making a collection of the best charts as a resource list 🙂

    Here’s my site: We should definitely work together on something in the future!

    Hope you’re having a great day!

  16. Is there a way to print bottle labels needed or are they only sold in a pack?
