My Teenager House Cleaning Do’s and Don’ts

DIgital Vision

I’m trying to get my house all cleaned up for the weekend.  With young teenage boys as my helpers, I’ve been trying to think of ways to explain what CLEAN really means, so they understand what I need them to do, when they are helping Mom clean up the house.  They don’t really care if the house is clean or not, so it makes it a difficult task trying to teach them that clean is “A good thing.” So…Where do we start?




Do Not:

Use feather dusters.  They are cute, light and pretty, and they just stir up dust so it lands somewhere else. These items are totally useless if you really want to clean your home.


Swiff!  Swiffer’s trap dust, and they are a big plus in my book.  If you don’t have the budget to spend on Swiffers, then use a wet rag  to trap dust .

Do Not:

Forget to sweep behind appliances, under tables, corners, and other furniture.


Use a vacuum. Investing in a quality vacuum is also a good move. Nothing works better than a great vacuum that has lots of attachments to get into tough corners, under counters, and even in the hard to get to nooks and crannies.

Do Not:

Forget to clean out vents. They are disgustingly filled over time with crumbs, dirt and other things that you can’t describe.  The air that is being forced into your home, is blowing all the stuff around. Get rid of it!


Remember that cleaning can be fun!  Put on Mix949, and dance the day away with a mop, broom, vacuum hose or swiffer.  It’s great exercise!  (Remember, you can stream us at!
