A MUM has shared her intense cleaning schedule – which involves doing a pile of laundry nearly every single day.
While some people have had more time at home due to the lockdown, others have been rushed off their feet looking after the kids or working from home – but all seemed to agree the rota was beyond them.

A mum shared a snap of the weekly schedule with fellow parents, which she got from Etsy, which lists which chores to do each day.
She shared it to Facebook group Clean, Declutter,Organise Your Home UK, where it’s caused a stir among members.
Kicking off the week on Monday is ‘bedroom day’, which involves changing the sheets and washing them.
And you need to dust, polish and wipe down everything in the room – including mirrors – as well as decluttering ‘for 10 minutes’.

Next is ‘bathroom day’, which is fairly self-explanatory, but you’ll also need to restock toiletries, change towels and wash them.
Kitchen day is next, and as well as taking out the bins, mopping the floors and cleaning the counters, you need to empty your fridge and clean it.
And Wednesday is the day to do one of two white washes a week.
Thursday it’s time to tackle the living room – and most importantly clean the TV.
Febreeze everything, vacuum and de-clutter – and then it’s time to do a dark wash.

On Friday the schedule says to wash your whites again, and you’ll clean a specialist area, such as windows, appliances or your skirting boards.
Finally it’s the weekend, but that doesn’t mean you stop cleaning.
It’s time to head outside and clean your car, do some gardening and spruce up your garage – and catch up on any laundry you may have missed somehow.
Luckily Sunday is a day of rest, before the hectic cleaning schedule starts all over again.
Is this from the 50’s? No way is that going to happen in my house
Hundreds of people have commented on the very thorough schedule, asking if it’s from the 1950s.
One person said: “Good lord! That’s a tall order for me I am retired!! Ha.”
Another thought: “I’m shattered looking at that.”
A third posted: “Wow! I couldn’t fit that around my full time job.”

Someone else asked: “Is this from the 50’s? No way is that going to happen in my house. I am worn out just looking at it.”
This person said: “This is a great list but I could never achieve this.”
While another added: “Good to see you get Sunday off.”
