From the cleaning and homekeeping expert and creator of the wildly popular Clean Mama blog comes a simple and accessible cleaning guide with a proven step-by-step schedule for tidying a home in just ten minutes a day.
Becky Rapinchuk, the “Clean Mama,” understands that many people don’t have the time, organizational skills, or homemaking habits to maintain a constantly clean and decluttered living space.

No matter how big your home or busy your schedule, the Simply Clean method can be customized to fit your life. It really is possible—in just ten minutes a day, you can create a cleaner, happier home.
This book has daily, weekly, monthly, and rotating cleaning tasks. There are monthly focus areas so you make sure every area of the house gets the attention it needs. Included is a cleaning challenge where you do a different task each day to really whip your home into shape. She gives you tips for customizing the Simply Clean Method for all different schedules, shows you how to speed clean any space, and tells you how to properly clean just about anything!
My favorite part is the section on recipes for homemade cleaning supplies. I always love trying new cleaner recipes. You know exactly what’s in them and it’s a lot cheaper than buying them! Another thing I took from this book is the built in catch all day. That way if you miss something you don’t have to try to squeeze it in somewhere else or be overwhelmed by it. You just get it done on your catch all day. There are a ton of different checklists included that you can use or use as a reference to create your own
The system is easy to implement, follow, and customize. If you stick to it your house will almost always be guest ready. If you don’t have a cleaning routine and are overwhelmed I think this would be a great book to give you structure and do daily tasks so you don’t get overwhelmed. If you already do have a cleaning routine that works for you, take what bits and pieces you can from the book and leave the rest.
