Hello everyone!

Not too long ago, I posted about how I was loving the FlyLady Cleaning System, not much has changed, I still really love the structure that it gives me and I have been using religiously since moving. In this post, I wanted to give you a deeper look into my zone cleaning. The FlyLady system breaks down monthly tasks into simple zones, one for each week of the month. This week I want to walk you through zone three.


This week we are in zone three, where I cover both of our bathrooms, one a half bath and the other a full bath. I take this week to deep clean both of our bathrooms. As we all know, bathrooms can get pretty gross, even with the weekly cleaning they get. Below I have listed the tasks that I came up with to keep our bathrooms sparkling clean:

  • Clean cabinet fronts
  • Deep clean toilets
  • Deep clean shower
  • Disinfect door knobs
  • Disinfect switch plates
  • Clean faucets
  • Empty out drains
  • Clean plungers
  • Clean toilet brush
  • Scrub floor

What I love about these zone tasks is that they don’t take an incredibly long time and they’re fairly simple. These are things that need to get done on a monthly basis, but we may not always have time to do them or we may not remember to do them. What is really hard is when these tasks pile up and that’s when we get overwhelmed with how big of a mess our house has become. Thankfully, the FlyLady system really makes you sit down and think about the things that need to be done and she spaces it out so well that you don’t get overwhelmed with tasks that need to be done. Tune in next week to check out our tasks for zone four!
