It's not too late to get started on the 30-day cleaning challenge and get your home in tip-top shape — just start today, and follow the schedule for the next 30 days! We have been carefully crafting a 30-day schedule for you, assigning tasks that will take up about about 20 minutes to an hour each day. In fact, we made it easier for you by creating a wonderful PDF — download it here — for you to print out and stick on your fridge to keep you accountable. After you've finished each task, just mark it off with an "X" to feel that rush of completing a task.
