Use this handy printable for a daily cleaning schedule of things you should be cleaning and disinfecting each day.
Being married to a police officer means I have a daily cleaning schedule to clean and disinfect not only his work clothes but the house and anything that he may come in contact with. He’s an essential worker in the middle of a pandemic and while I’ve been diligent about staying home with the kids, he has to leave the house each day. So that means my cleaning schedule needs become a daily cleaning schedule to keep everything clean and disinfected. This handy printable is your guide to cleaning and disinfecting the surfaces you or your family may touch on a daily basis.
Print out a copy of this daily cleaning schedule, laminate it and pin it somewhere where you’ll see it each day as a reminder to clean and disinfect these surfaces daily.
If your entire family is staying home and not leaving the house, you probably don’t have to follow this schedule daily.
If one or more of you are essential employees and are leaving the house, then this cleaning schedule should be done everyday.
Hopefully you have some cleaning and disinfecting products at home because they are nearly impossible to find right now.
HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN DISINFECTING SOLUTION
You can also make your own disinfecting solution if you need to. According to the CDC, you can make a disinfecting solution with:
- 5 tablespoons (1/3rd cup) bleach per gallon of water
- 4 teaspoons bleach per quart of water
If you don’t have any bleach at home, hopefully you can add some to your next Instacart order or Walmart or Target pickup order. These products do occasionally come in stock so don’t give up looking for them.
Also, don’t give up on Amazon. I was able to order some Lysol wipes just yesterday. So it does come in stock but usually sells out just as fast.
My tip, if you haven’t run out just yet but running low, start looking now. This way you’re not pressured to find stuff when you have absolutely nothing left.

Don’t forget your car! If you or your significant other is an essential employee or you’re leaving the house for groceries, you car needs to be cleaned and disinfected too.
Anything that you may touch, the steering wheel, door handle, trunk and even your keys should be wiped down every time you go out.
Stay safe, stay healthy!
