How to Clean Your Home in 20 Minutes

A clean house is more than sparkling clean hardwood floors! My 20 minute cleaning session is designed to get the whole family involved in those times that family or friends call and are coming over last minute or when the mess has taken over and you have to get everyone up and working so you can have a piece of your sanity back.

The 20 minute cleaning session doesn’t involve scrubbing bath tubs or deep cleaning the freezer or anything else that takes a lot of elbow grease and time- it focuses in on those tasks that have the biggest impact on the overall appearance of cleanliness in your home. Throughout the week, I try and schedule a “big” cleaning task daily like bathing the dog and scrubbing his kennel, washing all the bedding in the house, cleaning all the windows or hand scrubbing the bath tubs. Completing one big cleaning task a day will ensure these 20 minute cleaning sessions are a breeze.

Let’s get this house cleaning party started! – Okay, so I may be exaggerating the “party”.

Begin with your checklist below- feel free to print the image and keep on the fridge to easily access. Delegate all the items on the list to everyone in the family. My 9 year old is capable of completing any tasks on the list while my 2 year old can really only pick up toys at this point so take into consideration age of your children when making your cleaning plan of action.


  • Use disinfectant wipes on everything possible from countertops, sinks and any visible mess such as smudges on vanity.
  • Wipe mirrors with a window cleaner.
  • Scrub the toilet bowl with a disinfectant cleaner. I prefer one with bleach.
  • Empty all trash cans.
  • Mop floors. Bona offers a cleaner formulated for tile, laminate and stone.


  • Use disinfectant wipes to clean countertops, smudges on cabinets and appliances (some stainless steel appliances need special cleaners).
  • Wash the sink. That sounds like an oxymoron but scrub the sink with disinfectant wipes or dish soap and a sponge.
  • Put clean dishes away and place any dirty ones into ones into dishwasher.
  • Empty trash can.
  • Mop floors using your Bona Mop with appropriate cleaner for the floors material.


  • Pick up toys and miscellaneous items.
  • Make the beds. This is a task that should be done in the morning in my household but let’s face it- it doesn’t always get done.
  • Clean the floors – depending on your floors this means vacuuming or mopping with your Bona Mop.
  • Use disinfectant wipes on anything possible – nightstands, dressers, and the jam that mysteriously found its way onto the doorknob.

Living/Family Rooms: 

  • Pick up toys and miscellaneous items.
  • Use disinfectant wipes on anything possible. We literally only have a sectional and a basket of blankets in our family room so not a lot of wiping done in there.
  • Clean the floors – depending on your floors this means vacuuming or mopping with your Bona Mop.


  • Clean the dining room table, chairs and highchairs if applicable.
  • Vacuum all carpets and rugs.
  • Mop floors using your Bona Mop with appropriate cleaner for the floors material. This includes the dining room, entryway and hallways.

  1. I love this! I struggle with keeping my house clean (which is hard to even admit). If I can clean it up in just 20 min, then that would be a huge game changer.

    1. That’s the real task! My daughter pretty much just picks up toys at this point and sometimes she thinks she is cute pushing the mop or vacuum around but not a lot of cleaning is going on there. lol

  2. 20 minutes sounds doable. My 4 year old and I did a 10 minute blitz the other day…unfortunately, I lost her attention around minute 2! We’ll get there with more practice! Thanks for the outline!
