When do you do your cleaning? Morning or afternoon?

I try to clean when the kids are both sleeping so usually around mid-day, but really I tidy all day long, lol.

I clean daily as needed which involves dusting, using the mini vac, dishes etc....I do a big clean on Wed and Sun usually starting around 2 and ending aound 7 and that involves my massive OCD wipe down everything, sweep, central vac, mop etc...

I try to have the house tidied by 10 on weekdays, on Sundays i'm a little slower. Wed is a more heavy duty cleaning typically starts around 11 when hubby is up to keep the toddler occupied. Saturday is the big cleaning day, but i usually start later, around 1ish when DD is napping. Saturday is the day i do my floors, clean the playroom, do laundry etc. All of which are much easier without a toddler in tow! :)

I always HAVE to have my house tidied early in the day, like i said before 10. Tidying just involves sweeping as needed, dishes in the dishwasher, counters and sink clean and vacuuming the area rug as needed. I do these things through the day, but tend to get a lil lazier at night, so first thing int he morning i'll clean up what i didn't do in the evening. I dont worry much about toys left out, since putting them away just means DD will take them back out. But the actual dirt I am always sure to clean that up early or it gets on my nerves and I can't relax.

My house has to be tidy before bed. I sweep after dinner everynight, and the foyer, lr, dr. Large cleaning is usually on the weekend. Laundry a few times a week.

I got into the habit of cleaning after my son was in bed. Slowly over the years as my son got older and was in school I would clean during the day but not laundry or vaccuuming because I don't like using that much power during the day. Laundry and vaccuumong are still saved for after dinner cleaning and major cleaning is still done on the weekends.
