Wipe up food stains from floor.  Sweep floor with broom or power sweeper.  Take out garbage and recycling. Turn on all Lights.


Brush toilet quickly and flush.  Clean off counter and put all product inside vanity.  Lock away all medicines.  Clean mirror with window cleaner.  Quickly wipe down floor area, especially in corners.  Hang new towels. Turn on lights.


Make bed.  Hang/put away all clothes and shoes in back of closet. Run power sweeper over floors. Open window treatments.  Turn on lights. 


Clear clutter, dust all flat surfaces, including electronics.  Store small electronics in a secure place.  Fluff pillows, fold throws. Run power sweeper over floors. Open window treatments.  Turn on all lights.
