  1. Do you enjoy long Clean With Me videos like this one?

    1. Yes yes i do

    2. I live with my kid and husband in a small space so we really have to be on top of the cleaning game every day. Luckily, it only takes me an hour or two to do a deep clean.

    3. Yes!! I’m a bit late, I just found your channel but I got a lot of inspiration from this video!! I learned that I was never really cleaning in any certain order!! I would be doing whatever came to mind and was doing circles and having to go back over things again a second time and was making my job harder for myself!! Besides the floors! I always did the floors last before too:) but now I am feeling more efficient and I thank you!!

    4. Yes, this video motivates me to clean

    5. Sad reality. I do both :p I do my spot cleans during the week, a room here and there and then I do a full one on Saturdays. Not that it really needs it by that point lol

  2. I take a bowl with water mixed with clorox bleach and soap and rub everything down in my house with a cloth.

  3. Girl I know cleaning products are good and you a great cleaner but I feel like you don’t use enough bleach😂 Like I saw about 20 things I would have used bleach on🙈🤷🏻‍♂️ Love this channel so much!!

  4. Hi. do u have maid or helper? or you do by yourself everyday?

  5. wow look at that one toothbrush on the counter you guys are animals

  6. I’m following your vedios from 2014.i came from India and I don’t know how to clean the tubs and bathroom. So there you are my cleaning guru. I learnt so much from your vedios. Keep going on 🥰🥰

  7. I like to clean along the way I’m alot OCD and cannot rest of our house is a mess..I dislike that so much and wish i was able to leave it alone sometimes! Being this way drives me crazy, I just found your Channel and love your videos:) I’m wondering if you have a video or advice on how to just simply get motivated each day for instance every single morning I just simply have no get up and go, like I’m OCD about my home being clean yet ADHD and bounce all over the place and cannot get things done besides the cleaning that are needed alot of times if that makes sense I run late etc all at the same time 😣🙈..
    Thanks in advance! Amy

  8. What kind of bath mat is that?

  9. You used to say Less is more. Then why are you having too much stuff?

  10. I prefer marathon cleans because I hate cleaning so I don’t like to do it every day and once I get momentum going, it’s hard to stop until it’s done.

  11. You don’t put stuff away, that’s why there is clutter. Recently cleaned toilet? LOL. The biggest source of household germs. Love the pink shades? Farrow? Which one’s? Middleton pink and mauve? Glad you cleaned up! Husband cleaning with child was funny, where did you get the big yellow cup?

  12. I watch on line at work with no volume. Way better.

  13. I just want to know where she got that huge yellow mug from. That was the best part of the video lol. I live for cool stuff like that.

  14. Where did your leather couches come from? They are gorgeous.

  15. That is a beautiful cat!

  16. She looks so tired

  17. Idk the video is fun to watch but watching her touch dirty areas esp like a toilet or the floor w her hands make me cringe she’s not wearing gloves

  18. With this much square footage of floors, would you pretty much only use a stick vac / vacuum system? Like, would it not make sense to sweep using a broom if there’s that much space?

  19. I love your videos 😍😄😘❤️😘❤️😘😘

  20. Thank you and God Bless! Hahahahahaha the cat watching you cleaning, love cats thx.

  21. Weak lol my house gets worse then this!

  22. 8:40 lol the left over green LEGO 😂

  23. If you have trouble with extra strong stickers, lemon essential oil can help get stubborn stickers or labels off of things its a natural glue gone. Just soak the sticker with water and lemon essential oil let sit for a few minutes, and wipe away

  24. Thank you for being real. This is my usual daily life.

  25. I like how she uses different towels everytime she cleans somewhere else. Because not everyone does that.

  26. if that’s a 2 my place is -1000 lol I know my place is messy but tbh your place looks pretty good to me lol

  27. If that’s a 2 then mine is a -6. It’s a house with two men (one disabled) and 2 cats. Cleaning is only a thing that happens when rent inspections come up 🤣

  28. Good job i like watching motivation cleaning videos before i start my day,, i do more frequent cleaning but for sure i do also marthon cleaning when it gets out of control or if im doing that deep cleaning .

  29. @Clean My Space I really enjoy these cleaning videos. They are relatable and give me ideas and courage when cleaning my own space. Thank you very much. I look forward to more of your videos. 🙂👍

  30. I would get overwhelmed if I leave it for a long period of time, I do everyday 20-30 min and the Saturday I’d the main cleaning day where k do deep cleaning

  31. i love how the cat is just watching while you wash dishes LOL

  32. 8:41 you missed a LEGO!

  33. love your video.  Beautiful home!

  34. What are the color names your walls. Love them.

  35. I do the same thing when I’m cleaning the bathroom, I clean the floor with a towel. I hate hair lol 😝

  36. Video

  37. I love watching this

  38. please make another one without talking. You don’t have to narrate we can see what you’re doing.

  39. u should do the bestment if u have one

  40. We use a Dyson stick vac too but the battery will only do the living room, kitchen and hall before running out. Is your doing your whole house on one battery charge?

  41. im going to stay up and clean the house, my grandma will be happy!

  42. I love your house 😍😍

  43. You a go- getter!

  44. this is amazing!

  45. Smells good

  46. *looks around my 2 story house *
    Also me: I should clean
    1 min later
    : I GIVE UP

  47. Wow my family is a bunch of wild animals if that’s your dirty house. Lol 😂

  48. I absolutely cracked up during the kitchen cleaning portion, because we clearly see Melissa leave the recycling by the door, lol. My husband recently moved a tall Snap-On tool cabinet into our garage, and as a result, our garbage/recycle/compost bins have moved… so now I leave the recycling on top of the tool cabinet, and I can tell that it irks him to no end lol.

  49. I like how you clean your house🧡❤️🏁😂

  50. Hmmmmm if that was your version of a two out of 10 I wonder what mine is prob in the negatives

  51. I like house clean every day no matter what.Thats me.I like cleaner life and cleaner house.I dont like messy house.

  52. thats really not as bad as my room gets. maybe if you combined every single rooms mess then multiplied it by 20

  53. that plant behind her what kind of plant is that?

  54. I wish my house was as beautiful as this one! 😭😭

  55. Girl. This couch

  56. Marathon cleaner here, so I don’t have to worry about it too much the rest of the week… of course I do eventually, yet the sensation after I’m done is incredible and I just love it. Of course, when I’m done I start thinking of possible nooks and crannies that I’ve missed but I take note and I promise to start from them next week. Still, 10 mins a day, as you advise, could prove rather useful as an extra step to perfection and it could take some load off the next cleaning marathon!

  57. I just can’t fathom how someone could leave their house so messy. I leave a pair of shorts on the floor and I get anxiety…. I just can’t live in mess and filth…

  58. I’m definitely not a marathon cleaner. Daily chores and clean ups works for me! I’ve got a life to live girl!

  59. How much the cost of this house

  60. Just out of curiosity, would you consider yourself a minimalist?

  61. Do people really need this type of thing spelled out for them?? No hate ofc but i guess to me it just seems obvious lol

  62. This house looks so… bare?

  63. If you’re reading this and you’re alive and breathing then this message is for you: God loves you so, so much, you can not fathom His love for you! It doesn’t matter what’s you’re gender, your luck so far in life, or what you have done in your past (trust me, I’m the worst of them all) God came in the flesh in a man named Jesus Christ and gave His life to take the punishment that should have been yours. If you don’t believe me, then ask Him. I dare you. Find a quiet space where you’re alone, and HONESTLY ask the Creator if He is real. Don’t be afraid to reply and tell me what happened, please. God’s love for you is the strongest force in existence. Stronger than gravity, stronger than whatever you’re going through right now. If you’re already a believer, then never forget what you just read! And make sure your relationship with the heavenly Father is active, real, honest, alive and well. Not lazy like most of us Christians are with God. If you’re a nonbeliever, please be humble and go and see for yourself if what I’m saying is true or not. I didn’t come to argue, I was sent to change. Make a change, Christians! You aren’t meant to hang around and live for yourself like everyone else! God bless you all!!

  64. All about the marathon clean! Such a motivating video. Thanks!

  65. I think you’re amazing 😉

  66. While raising our three kidlets, we had a two story, 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 house. On Friday (cleaning day) I would start after the kids were off to school and clean from stem to stern. When done, my house was spotless. I didn’t miss ANYTHING. What a wonderful feeling to have it all clean. Now, at 80 years old, I clean our small 2 bedroom, two bath home as I can. Energy went South along with my boobs etc. lol I enjoyed watching you clean as I used to. Your house is beautifully decorated! Did you do it or have it professionally done?

  67. I’m a clean freak and seldom feel anyone has the equivalent standards of cleanliness. You are pretty awesome. Thanks for all you do!!

  68. Who is watching this in 2020 cuz of coronavirus

  69. my question is why does she have so much towels 🙂

  70. you missed a lego under the couch lol

  71. Where did you get your night stands?

  72. 8:40 AHHHH!!!! Lost loney solo toy block forgotten under the couch!!! HA HA HA HA!!!!! (Lil’ Easter Egg there for ya)

  73. You forgot sth under the sofa at 8:40 😀

  74. I will never EVER understand why don’t you guys wash your bathrooms… I only clean my bathroom throwing water w/ products in everything hahah

  75. Your cleaning methods are amazing. Please make a video on your home tour. We would really like to watch your home. Make a small video on it. We are waiting.

  76. Love your black/white top! where did you get it?

  77. you’re 2 is an 8 to me

  78. I do marathon cleaning for my own house once a week but I always end up doing small cleaning every 2 days too, cant help it, I love a clean space.

  79. How many cloths do you use when cleaning your whole house and how often do you clean or change these cloths?

  80. I love clean

  81. Wow thanks for sharing! ❤

  82. Excellent video 🤞

  83. I agree when it comes to the toilet I use paper towel

  84. should do a cleaning with me livestream that does the full five hours. Have a drink every time there a “missed a bit!” comment

  85. 😁👍🏻 I have a question…. my wooden cutting boards smell like onions. 😝 I tried lemon but no luck. Please help with the best suggestion. Thank you so much. 💐

  86. How Do I Clean Terrazzo??? Please help me clean this damn beautiful terrazzo floors!!! Is there a video for this?

  87. I’m quarantined right now so when I wake up tomorrow I want to organize and rearrange my room lol

  88. Am I the only one who thinks the woman in this video looks like Janet from the good place show

  89. Hello, what LG models are your washing machine and dryer?! I love them but I don’t think we would have those in the UK 😂

  90. Welp, now I’m inspired to clean! Thank you

  91. I use paper towels to clean toilets too! I hate the idea of using that towel later on the counters or something even after being cleaned and sanitized 🙈 I also don’t wear gloves to clean my own toilets. I just scrub my hands extra and wash them after I’ve done the toilet. It’s more laundry to add to to use the gloves just for the toilets. The amount of times I’ve had bodily fluids get on me from my boys I’m not disturbed by not wearing gloves for this. 😂

  92. i love all the advice and quick tips in these video, i always watch them before cleaning just for a bit of motivation xoxo

  93. Riley’s room is stunning!

  94. I see you cleaning everything with the same solution. What solution did you use in this video? Just wondering.:)

  95. How do you keep you house clean with a cat our litter box is in the bathroom and it sooo messy

  96. Alguém sabe o que tem dentro desse spray que ela usa nos móveis do quarto dela?

  97. Meu Deus que máquina de lavar roupas é essa?!?! Linda e gigante.

  98. I’m super late to the party here, but I really love the top you’re wearing (the black with wobbly white stripes) – it looks really comfortable, and I’d love to know where you got it, if you’re comfortable sharing that information? 🙂

    Also, my tip for cleaning… get good music going. I find that I end up singing along and dancing while I clean, which makes somewhat fun. I take 30-second-dance-party brakes now and then. lol it all gets done anyway, and my husband gets an hour long concert featuring me, so we both win! lol

  99. You clean the whole house and then have to make an excuse to have your
    husband make the bed? Wtf

  100. What is in the spray bottle

  101. If you see this and respond I would appreciate it very much! Thank you for any help you have in advance!

    How to deal with a family member, friend, or in times of self isolation: anyone in your immediate contact (like I said “in times of self isolation!” anyone in your self isolation camp! I think you get the drift. You give these people the information they need to keep others and thereselves safe. You give them the information they need to be safe and they just aren’t buying it and don’t want to do it! Like wash there hands in alcohol and wash there hands in soap and water whenever possible! They act like you have three heads and basically tell you to go float a boat!

    As crazy as this sounds: why would anyone have the information that will atleast increase there chances by 50% that they will not get sick (those odds are better than 0%) and they don’t care! They get all sick headed and tell you that they are clean enuff and you can go bugger off!

    Now listen this can be very hard to take when you have their lives (I mean in my case the person is 76 years old, has heard that it takes out the elderly and all the information and stilll is not really serious about cutting down the spread off viruses and germs?)

    Anyone, who reads this and has any kind of solution to peacefully try to make this person wisen up and how to do it in a nice way without burning them alive pleace help! I am kidding of course! But, no jokes. When you go out and come home wash your hands and atleast use hand sanitizer when you think necessary (even at home use) and they don’t wanna do it and they ight / argue with you? I’m not obsessed! I’m am like this: If you come home and wash your hands as soon as possible for atleast 30 seconds with a nice soapy lather! Then use hand sanitizer throughout the day your good and after that try not to worry! But, this seems to be too much to ask? If I am trying to do my best not to spread germs or bacteria to them and I wouldn’t ask anything of another that I am not already doing for them and I, I find it offensive that they are not willingly and happy to do themselves! Like I said if anyone can help or even relate to let me know!

  102. How do you clean all towels and cloth?

  103. Oh girl! This still isn’t messy. But hey you should be proud of yourself for that! I’m a little on the bitter side that you feel like this is incredibly messy but that’s just cuz I’m jealous. We have 1 walk-in closet in our house that was built on to the house that we store holiday decorations in, but outside of that, we have tiny little closets in our bedroom, so there’s nowhere to hide our mess. It’s so overwhelming!

  104. With a newborn and toddler sometimes picking up and cleaning gets ignored for a few days. The I turn to these videos to inspire me to go into power mode and feel fresh again

  105. I love cleaning as I go each day. But that was before I moved in with my SO and he’s a pile things up and do mass cleans person. I constantly found myself feeling like I was treading water doing my daily clean method that I just caved and gave into his weekly cleaning mentality. Still drives me up a wall a year later.

  106. Wow this is so enjoyable to watch 😀👍

  107. Wait a second, why is there two sinks in the same bathroom? and 2 washing machines?!

  108. If I could afford a house this big, I hope I can also afford a maid.

    1. you should try this :

  109. Jesus is this a mansion?

  110. Always tie your hair while cleaning 🙂 you are getting all the bacteria in your hair and clothes.

  111. Whats in the spray bottle for cleaning the bathroom

  112. Unfortunately I’m a marathon cleaner. New to your channel and just bought your book. Thank you! These videos will motivate me to be less marathon and more of a frequent cleaner.

  113. Kitty is watching! Meow!

  114. Your 2 is my 8 lol

  115. I like the marathon clean personally because I feel so accomplished afterwards. Not the same feeling doing a little at a time every day

  116. I go either way

  117. Very nice home.

  118. What cleaning product did you use in your bathroom ( it was in a spray bottle)?

  119. Loved this! I’ve been needing to spring clean and since we are all at home now… this has been a life saver for me! I prefer to keep things tidy and then clean as needed but then I neglect stuff. So a marathon clean with a little help from the family on a weekend always makes our house look AMAZING. Plus we’ve been decluttering big time this last year and our home is easier to keep up with and looks nicer when we do clean.

  120. I should not have watched this because it’s one a m……

  121. I prefer small frequent cleans because I get stressed out by too much clutter or grime, and I would put off any large/mass cleanings. I usually just do tasks on certain days. I’ll wash the bed sheets and dust or something on one day, sweep and mop on another day, clean windows and mirrors another, overall clean/disinfect surfaces on another, etc. The only thing that gets done daily/twice a day/whenever they appear are the dishes. I make my bed to some degree every day, and laundry gets done 1-2 times per week for my things/towels

  122. Is she cleaning her mirrors with her homemade dish soap mixture? Thank you to whoever can answer my question ✌️❤

  123. What to you used in the spraybottle?

  124. Small frequent cleans. For me, keeping up with it on a daily basis is easier.😃😃

  125. I have the same sweatshirt. Target


  127. Great video! very inspiring!

  128. Thanks I have weeks like this that I hold out for the weekend to tackle.

  129. I eat popcorn and shes cleaning toilet …

  130. Please remind us again and again what’s the spray you make in the bottle.
    We need to know that.

  131. An easy way to remove stickers, baking soda. I only know this accidentally lol. Just like how I came across your videos and channel just now. I was looking for a way to clean up this iron my husband trash picked for me (waste not want not). After I was done with my baking soda, toothpaste, vinegar solution and I was wiping up the little breakfast tray I was working on (also trash picked 🤫). I noticed the solution wipe away the remnants of a long forgotten sticker. 😊 No elbow grease necessary. Came right off.

  132. you forgot the green block under the sofa

  133. Ah I have some similar strategies to you. I’ve always done the ‘full hands’ and encourage my family to do the same. I’ll leave things at foot of the stairs to be taken in the right direction. I also go one room at a time and have a holding area in the hall dragging things in the right direction as I go.

  134. Hey, cleaning the house is a great Quarantine Activity!

  135. I really needed this video for inspiration xxx thank you x hugs xxxx

  136. Thanks for showing your kitchen! I honestly thought I was the only one that had a kitchen that ever looked like this.

  137. Small frequent cleans preferred.

  138. 1. Why would anyone not like a cleaning video? Like if you don’t like it don’t watch it that is so weird to me. Two. I can’t fathom what it would be like to be able to clean for 5 hours straight in one day. I am lucky some days if I can clean for an hour straight. And it wipes me out the rest of the day. stinking autoimmune diseases man.

    I’m really enjoying your Channel! My mother had one of those homes that never looked lived in but never made me lift a finger so I’m 41 and still have a house that looks like it’s run by a twelve-year-old. I find your videos very inspiring! Keep up the good work!

  139. Small frequent cleans preference

  140. I do both marathon and small frequent cleaning very often. I can’t keep up with all these people in the house.

  141. Un-du adhesive remover will get those stickers up. 🙂

  142. I prefer the marathon cleaning

  143. 👏👏👏👏👏

  144. I am a homemaker and have 5 sons ages 7 down to 11 months and homeschool. I am forever marathon cleaning because it is a lot of work to keep up with, especially in our large home. I prefer my whole house to always be clean and don’t like when I know there are large areas that require work.
    It would be a whole lot easier and achievable if I had hours on end to work, but when you factor in all the distractions and kids playing and undoing the work I’ve done, it just doesn’t last long.

  145. ….That’s a 2?

  146. I love your house! And this video 😍

  147. You have such beautiful hair 😍

  148. Thanks at least i have learnt some thing.

  149. You are amazingly brave for showing us your real lived in home and it is very appreciated to know that it is quite normal to live your life and sometimes slack in the deep cleaning a bit longer than intended.. life gets busy and I really enjoy learning to clean my home more efficiently so thank you so much for doing these videos!!

    1. And your home is gorgeous

  150. Ok but have you seen my home, haha that is totally a disaster

  151. What kind of wash machine do you have ?

  152. That’s not even messy 😢

  153. I do enjoy your videos. However, I was shocked to see that you are throwing your pillows and duvet on a floor which has not been cleaned yet. The stuff which was on a bathroom countertop was placed on the non cleaned floor too. Could you please explain your thought process behind this?

  154. The only thing I would say about not wearing gloves is that you could end up damaging your hands from the cleaning solution.
    It’s more about protecting your skin.
    Thanks for the tips and motivation though ❤️

  155. Subscribed because of the cat! 0:54

  156. Did anybody notice the toy under the couch?

  157. What is the name of the pinkish paint color on the wall in your bedroom?

  158. I love the colours in your home! great video my uncle is inspiring me to have a neater home your helping me out lots for my 2020 goal! 😁

  159. Your home is so beautiful. Great video!

  160. I will admit I feel motivated to clean now.
    Ok, Google – vacuum my house!

  161. Oh my gosh, the cleaning of the stickers has become my life!

  162. Cat on the table…((((((

  163. BIG ass house, holy

  164. I do an intense clean every Monday (laundry, floors that the rumba didn’t do, replace filters and yard work) and try to keep it clean by doing a tidy up during naps and that pre “omg hubby is home in 30 minutes” speed clean! keeping it clean throughout the week (and a good tidy up on Saturdays) means my Mondays are a deeper clean. This becomes especially important when its warm and the grass is growing really fast or I have weeding to do outside 🙂 and nothing beats spraying off the entire patio with my power hose! SO satisfying!

  165. a

  166. I wanna know What’s this liquid

  167. Im not motivated either way i just think its entertaining

  168. Hey what is that one thing you’re using to clean everything? The kind of spray that you’re doing on sinks and counter tops and mirrors and floor. Is that the mixture of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide?

  169. Bathroom lovely very I endowed

  170. الحمام رررروعه 🌹 جميل

  171. You need to use a delicate laundry bag to hold Riley’s toys in the bath tub. P. S great show. Lots of everyday useful ideas.

  172. Wow… Your daughter has a better room than me… 😂

  173. I clean things every day.

  174. I did the eye level test for the first time this morning….OMG…this is gonna take a while…

  175. Your dirty house is so clean. 😂😂😂😂😂😂

  176. i prefer the small cleaning than the marathon

  177. can u tell where did u bought shoes mate on ur doorway having shoes , also i liked ur indoor plants can u do some video on it about those indoor plants taking care of them ,etc. i also hate cleaning but when i do i cleaning same like a marathon.also havent seen recently any videos of chad for cleaning ,or any house related

  178. Lolol. Her 2 is like my 5 or 6.

  179. What is solution you clean with Thank you so much for sharing

  180. Just shut up and clean.

  181. I’m mostly grossed out about drying dishes with a towel.

  182. My room is as dirty as your whole house combined. You ain’t seen 2 yet girl 😬.

    This helped me clean the house and I’m grateful thanks for the vid😊

  183. Loved the video thanks. I also love your dining room chairs where did you get them?

  184. Thank you for this video that has given me a lot of useful knowledge and tips. I really like your Siamese, is it really loud and chatty? I’m thinking of getting one.

  185. That’s not even close to being BAD

  186. Definitely motivating! Thanks ☺

  187. Micro clean and timing it.
    I place every tool where it needs to be and do what you do. Move things around and spot what needs work.
    The oven I preheat the whole thing and let it get to a warm feel so when I wipe, it should come up. Then I use whatever cleaners afterwards with hot as I can take water. Sweep in my place should take ten minutes but if I had a bug home, what you did makes a bit more sense to consolidate some things. Spray and leave for a bit so its least on the hands and more in the power of your arms to keep from getting too burned out. Mop and Swifter but I make sure the cleaner mixed properly. I usually boil some water to throw in the bucket to get it to a point. I’m wearing gloves anyways but I am careful. Sometimes I wipe the walls because it collects dust there too sometimes. Once, I wiped my wall, I got gray dust I never thought was there.
    Sometimes it’s not too bad to be around certain places where germs can lie because you build an immunity to it over time or at least some form of it.
    Dust is something I don’t tolerate because that holds all kinds of shit in it.

  188. Hmmm looks like the light mess was staged lol. Omg this is nothing compared to what I have to deal with 😖 had a couple guests that left a disaster and my bf won’t clean a thing, never after himself either. Things get cleaned and immediately after it’s a crap show. So I guess I have a 50 year old child? Lol

  189. What are you adding in this spray to be for all the purposes? Thanks

    1. Clean My Space ??

  190. This video made me so happy 😍 the mess was giving me anxiety

  191. I was never taught how to do cleaning, cooking, etc growing up so I’m really grateful for youtube and channels like this because I get to learn how to do these things as an adult. This is one of the reason that I aim to have just studio apartments. I don’t like spending so much time on doing house chores at all.

  192. I like to do cleaning when nobody is at home

  193. I do a good thing and clean my chest freezer and refrigerator with a 50/50 mix of vinegar and oil free acne wash – like Neutrogena this makes it clean as a saints freezer can be and you can do this to the exterior surfaces first. This helps the food stay fresher because it is put into the spirit and is a spiritual cleanse for anything you like to clean. Use any kind of vinegar white, distilled, and apple cider.

  194. I love cleanliness

  195. 12:41 Your cat attentively watching you the whole time is the cutest thing ever XD

  196. I love your house.

  197. I was brought up learning the art of clean as you go, make time to do a little each day, and then the overall cleaning/tidying tasks are not so big to tackle, takes less time and effort leaving you feeling less exhausted and more pleased with the result of the task done, its what my mother calls “daily maintenance cleaning” it works for me and especially with my limited abilities I have to make sure im not overwhelming myself with too much at once, and then leaves me time to rest and relax and enjoy the day.

  198. Jesus. Whenever I do a deep cleaning I wear golves, a face mask, use load of chemicals (the least dangerous ones I can find ofc, or even natural substitutes). But still. I look like s**** when I clean. You look so casual and chill xD

  199. Silly comment, but would love a video on how you regularly care with your hands. My hands get really dry and wrinkly after a long clean. Resort to wearing disposable gloves, but not environmentally friendly.

  200. marathon cleans

  201. you missed one ball under the couch

  202. I do a little bit of cleaning every day to keep my home clean! It occasionally gets really messy. But I like keeping things in order.

  203. Well. I am not the only one who cleans the way I do it seems. You & I, have the same waves and thinking.

  204. I clean in small portions. Like I just pick a corner of the room and start looking through what is there. Then I can sort it into piles for where it needs to be, for example the screwdriver goes into the hardware drawer, and laundry gets washed + put away. Stuff that doesn’t have a designated spot gets put aside until I can either get rid of it or find an actual place for it. Then once I’ve cleaned the area I move onto another small area. It just makes it so much less overwhelming for me.

  205. Why would I get motivated to clean my messy house by watching this woman clean her clean house

  206. how do you clean with long sleeves

  207. you…you call that *messy* ?

  208. I really don’t have energy to do what u did

  209. Oooof! So many adverts today. What is YouTube doing?!?

  210. Nice wig😅😅😅😅

  211. No tuck on the flat sheet? 😆

  212. I reallyyy hope you used a different rag to wipe the light switch and doorknob after you wiped down your baby’s change station 😅 haha

  213. When my house needs the big clean, I often feel overwhelmed and can’t workout a way to get the job done. The smaller cleaning sessions a few times a day help me, especially with how busy my schedule can be (with 4 kids).

  214. I need to know where you got your bedroom dresser (around the tv). Is it a built in?

  215. 13:00 the cat is just looking and not doing anything . If it was my stupid cat , he would irritate me to the core 😀

  216. Teenagers need to watch this hahahha

  217. Did you ever a phase in which you doubted your cleaning abilities and thought you would never be good enough to get your home cleaned or keep it clean?

  218. If that is a two for you every once in a while, then my house is a two all the time!😝

  219. I love your home! It’s gorgeous

  220. Great Job Chad but my OCD would have lost it when he didn’t tuck in the flat sheet but I totally understand when my hubby makes the bed as bad as I want to go behind him and do it right 😂 I will never as long as he does it I’m learning to be ok with good Enough!! that’s super hard for a reformed slob such as myself love your channel

  221. That’s how I clean my bathroom floors too 😂

  222. Hey Melissa.
    I do short regular cleans now. I don’t prefer them as such, but I have an autoimmune illness and these days my stamina is 👎🏻
    I used to love doing a major clean and probably enjoyed this video much more than would be considered normal 😄

  223. Oh definitely the marathon cleaning! LOVE YOUR CHANNEL. You got a new subscriber

  224. Sometimes, I notice somethings always end up out of their designated places, on the same spot. This is when I realize a have designated a “bad place” for them; a place that doesn’t work for them! I believe that if it isn’t easier to keep something in its right designated place, than to leave it elsewhere; it means I have designated a wrong spot, for it! By the way, I find your videos inspiring!!

  225. I m 60years old & evn though I love to clean, I dont hv as much energy now as before to clean my 6 bedrooms, 6 toilets & 1 powder room daily.
    So I do mini cleans in my bedroom, once a week clean in my 2 adult children rooms. My husband maintain & cleans 1 room which he converted into his study & I clean the guest room & designated maid room (I dont have a maid) once a mth.
    I clean the attached bathrooms when I clean the bedrooms.
    And the powder room once a mth.
    These are my maintenance clean.
    I clean my living room & dining room every alternate day.
    And the kitchen daily as we Asians cook a lot of food by frying & saute or simmer. So I hv the wipe down counters, stove tops, clean my double basin sink & mop kitchen floors daily every night.

  226. Hi, can you tell me models of LG washing and drying machin?! Thanks

  227. Love when my husband makes the bed too… does such a great job.

  228. Love your cat in the kitchen!

  229. Melissa, got a question: wouldn’t it be less work if each item got put back in it’s place after using it to avoid clutter?

  230. LOVE from Egypt !
    Shall I know what do you do with the cat hair everywhere ?

  231. A good laundry basket in every room will help. Nothing in the floor. Good rule for the family to follow ! And if they use something put it back when finish . 🙏❤️👌

  232. S” pattern oh stop! SMH

  233. Your house is so big 😦

  234. Says 5hrs of cleaning, but proceeds to clean it in 17 mins. Lol wth

  235. Small more often. Yes, I love 💘 these cleaning videos.

  236. Where did you get your couches from?

  237. Thanks for being ‘real’ by not feeling like you have to wear gloves the whole time your cleaning.

  238. She reminds me of Jennifer Aniston in her looks and also her way of talking. Love the tips she shares too, makes me motivated to get to cleaning 💪🏼

  239. Small and frequent cleans are necessary for me. My home always has to be clean and tidy.

  240. This video makes me feel so grateful for tiny 1 and 2 bedroom condos and minimalism lol. I can’t imagine cleaning a gigantic house filled with stuff and kids toys.

  241. What do you use for your all-purpose cleaner? Do you use this for mirrors/windows as well?

  242. I really hate everytime i clean my floor,my hair strands are everywhere..😂 hairfall problem.😂

  243. Wd40 pulls up stickers without scratching

  244. My house is always clean, just really really messy hehehe.

  245. #CleanMySpace I noticed it looked like the same spray bottle for both the mirrors and countertops. I have 2 different bottles I use for wiping down. Am I missing something?

  246. I love how she points out its not a disaster cleaning. Some YouTubers call it a disaster when it’s just a major mess.

  247. 1:53

  248. Good job. I do marathon cleaning in winter months

  249. cool

  250. My house is a -21

  251. “I prefer to clean daily so I don’t have to marathon clean” WELL LIFE HAPPENS Y’ALL. Too bad we can’t all be perfect like your judgy selves.

  252. I use paper towels to clean my toilet too!! 😂

  253. cat’s getting ready to knock things over 😂 0:51

  254. My main motivation in one word is…. ASTHMA. I now have it, which is what led me to recently finding Clean My Space. I needed to find out the correct and most efficient, along with natural ways, to clean my own space to reduce allergens. Dust, and even the act of dusting, is a major factor and hurdle in my life now. Naturally all our clutter really must go, so minimalism, here we come. I would prefer to do a marathon clean, but because of my asthma, I have to learn to do things in smaller chunks. Thank you for all the information, guidance and motivation in your videos!!

  255. With 5 kids, 4 pets and odd kids in and out of our house everyday seems like a marathon clean!!

  256. I’m sorry I’m a newbie , number 1 LOVEEEEEEEEE your content thank you so much for sharing your secrets ! Okay I maybe missed it but what is in your purple bottle for the mirrors ?

  257. LOVE this video! Great tips and motivation. I saw that you have the same nonstick pan liners I do )white with red edges), any tips for cleaning the tacky-sticky residue off them and other nonstick pans? I’ve used baking soda and vinegar, every kind of soap and oil remover, lots of elbow grease and even tried a paint scraper… no luck. Sticky, tacky brown spots.

  258. I can relate to that “plummet “ when it comes to keeping up the home.

  259. yes

    1. yall re preyy

    2. hi

  260. Where do you guys think it’s the best place in the house to start cleaning ?

  261. What are you using in the purple bottle sprayer? I see that you use it on mostly everything.

  262. Melissa never points right to the subscribe button 😂

  263. So you did go to California Closets?? Looks awesome!

  264. How tf is this a 2 out of 10. My house is a minus 50 or some shit Jesus

  265. Anyone else find that videos like these are so relaxing!? 🤣😅

  266. Such a good video! For me, if I’m able to, of course, I tend to do bedrooms first, then the rest of the house follows suit the next day. Mainly because I like to use the little portable hoover that we have for the bedrooms but it only has like…an hour of charge every time it gets used. So I do the bedrooms with that hoover then do the rest of the house with our big wired hoover (so I don’t have to worry about the charge). And I usually go bathroom first, then the living room and then the kitchen. I live in a bungalow as well so it doesn’t really take that long. Does anyone else listen to music as well whilst cleaning? For some reason, I tend to clean quicker when I have music playing. Or at least, it feels quicker.

  267. Thanks for the voiceover

  268. Your kitchen I would give a 5 lol it looks like mine most days when I clean… Except I’ve been sick for almost a full month so I’ve got some mold in my sink yuck 😣. I’m a 1 right now. … As for your question I do a marathon clean. Once a week on my day off from work. But my bf likes to clean as he goes sooo I might have to change.
    Edit(I live in a bsmt apt so very damp mold grows really quickly if I don’t stay on top of it) just thought I’d add that in

  269. I would call that a 7 looks ‘lived in” I can’t believe that’s all there is for a week, I have 2 kids though… Sooo …. I took all the books away. My daughter was pulling ever single one off every day. Rips the sheet and bedding off most days and create a pile to jump in ….. Emptys the toy box most days too … I’ve taken most things away now though. Till she stops hiding food under her bed and starts staying in the kitchen when eatinh she’s losing all her stuff. Nail polish all over my bathroom but I’ve gotten a huge amount off but it’s still there even after so much acetone.

  270. do you have a baby? you should have this baby when you were younger girl. you are practically a nana to you own child

  271. I prefer small cleanups but always seems like things get out of control so that the big cleanup is inevitable every couple of months.

  272. This was posted on my b day

  273. How do you clean the microfiber cloths that you use for the bathroom?

  274. I’m in love with your home design ♥️😭

  275. I wash my dishes as soon as I’m done eating

  276. I love your house and cleaning flow strategy. Do you employ Feng Shui with your home?

  277. Now that I’m “older” I no longer clean marathon style. Thankfully the routines I’ve developed these last few years and Melissa”s videos have, kept my home in pretty good shape. Thanks for the motivation today Melissa!

  278. anyone else notice the left-over brick under the sofa at around 08:30? 🙂

  279. Thank you for keeping it real!

  280. Oh my Lord! That’s a big house to clean😁😁

  281. How do you handle houses that are really old and always look dirty no matter how much you clean?

  282. Hi Melissa! I am not sure if you made a video of one, but do you have a DIY cleaner recipe for doing fiberglass bathtubs? I know you made one for marble/stone, but I’ve been searching your Channel for fiiberglass tubs as I am having trouble efficiently cleaning ours. Thanks and looking forward to hearing from you!

  283. Got 2 sets of your towels for Christmas. I might just take off a day this week to clean my house. I work from home but have no motivation for cleaning — ever! I need to get your book out again and get motivated. I clean bathrooms and that’s about it. I love ALL of your videos and this really showed me a lot. I think my whole house would take 2 full days, and our house is tiny! Thank you for motivating me.

  284. But ur house was not that messy

  285. I’ve never left my brush in the loo like that cool!!

  286. I don’t prefer marathon cleaning… but my health means I leave it for that long, then suffer through the marathon cleaning once a week.

  287. I love this video! I‘be been subscribed for ages but completely underestimated the ability of these videos to assist my husband develop a cleaning routine as well, I love that your home is a normal lived in home. Thanks so much for this video ❤️☺️

  288. Is your bed two singles together?

  289. Thank you for this video came a great time. Can you please make a video on what type of pest control you use? I’m torn on what to use but the insects are invading! But with pet and kid I don’t know what’s safe.

  290. Thank you! No, I do not like to clean, so I make sure not to make a lot of mess and I make sure there is a home for everything. I clean a little each day 🙂

  291. How do you wash the microfiber towels used to clean the floors in the bathroom? I mean if you put them in the washer what about the hairs an all? Do you desinfect them?

  292. I have three small kids. I hardly ever have more than maybe 1,5 hours in one go during the week to clean. Sometimes in the weekend I do a longer stretch. But I try (TRY) to stay on top. Which sometimes happens ☺️

  293. Melisa you rock, very inspiring.👍🏽

  294. Your home desperately needs art work.

  295. My house looks the same! Welcome to parent-life! 😁🙌🏻 Thanks for this, I love your cleaning videos!!

  296. I hate marathon cleans but I always let it go until I have to marathon clean 😫

  297. I’m most definitely a marathon cleaner, but I feel like I’m marathon cleaning every night with a 16m old! 🙄🤣

  298. Tips to make things look clean:
    • make your bed (making beds changes how the whole room looks, also makes it more spacious)
    • do the dishes
    • vacuum
    With these three simple things, it already makes a difference. But you do need to do a deep clean at least once every two to four weeks. I clean my house once a week and the huge super cleans happen once a month.
    Edit: Oof I just realised she said all of tbis 😂

  299. Honestly I could never clean in a sweater or have my hair down no matter how cold it was 😂. OCD runs in my family. Everyone freaks out over mess. You may think, neat freaks, that’s good. But hell no. People move your stuff and then you can’t find it, it’s so irritating. The benefits are that my house is always really clean and tidy 😂

  300. Thank you for inspiration! I also doesn’t like cleaning but the result. It feels good to have cleared outside for the inside. I prefer to major clean on the right moon time. The results are amazing and it’s getting easier.

  301. Your house is beautiful

  302. I will do a room a day and general tidying around the rest of my home. Lots of will power here😉

  303. I swear I can be on a roll for weeks then BOOM. I’m thrown off my routine

  304. Love ur room

  305. What a beautiful home ❤️ the dining room is amazing so different 🙀!! Loved it xx

  306. What were you using when you sprayed the floors in the bathroom?

  307. i do a marathon clean every other week, and smaller chunks in between. also i do the zone cleaning system.

  308. A cleaning video on how u would clean old or disabled would b nice as my mum is old now loves2clean but has arthritis! I know this is off topic but u would make a lotta difference2a lotta lives if u had any tips from your yrs of experience. I know it’s more occupational health but lots young people injured need2clean and would u have some lo strength ways a person can still clean. I am in a different part of Ireland so can’t help her. She won’t get a cleaner. My sister’s husband does try2help4heavy hoovering etc but she can’t do basics and she does it then is in pain. She has arthritis in her hands shoulders and neck. Poor mum!! Thank u. I know it’s a big request but any tips from you would b much appreciated!

  309. I volunteered cleaning an old church in Ireland and learnt by almost knocking a st anthony statue off it’s perch up hi on wall that yes u hold what u dust on walls as it wasn’t glued. It was just perched! Crazy! And a polish priest brought it all the way from Poland 2Ireland. U would think he’d have glued it but no!!!

  310. I like the tip2do swish tidy1st! I also do this!!

  311. I like to both small cleans and marathon cleans. I dont have kids, but I have cats and they are just as bad. So I do spot cleans throughout the week then do a few hours on the weekend (laundry, vacuuming, dusting, etc.) That way I dont get worn out cleaning during the week and I dont use up all of my freetime on the weekends cleaning.

  312. I only use paper towels on toilets also. And paper towels around the toilet as well.

  313. This is what I love watching 😍and inspiring which is what I’m doing as well just started my channel so excited this is 👍🏽 great!

  314. I have been cleaning in “waves” my whole life without realising it. It just makes sense doesn’t it?

  315. LOVED this video and I appreciate soo much because it made everything more doable the way you do it and hearing the mentality you have when you feel like stopping. I just finished cleaning my place. I’m so proud. I feel Great about it!! Thank you!! 💕

  316. Que produto eh esse que passa com paninho e seca rapido e fica esse brilho todo?

  317. Yes, I also use the “cinderella methood” in my bathroom also because of the hair! Although one thing you haven’t discussed is the slippers you’re wearing…doesn’t the dirt stick to it during the two waves? I always clean it ca. third wave so that I don’t spread dirt around in the apartment.

  318. I actually respect you for showing your kitchen being used. Like yeah it happens, shock, horror, people cook in and use the kitchen and its not always pristine! Crazy that.

  319. Thats messy! your house is a 10 compared to mine.

  320. And I would much like to clean once a week than everyday.

  321. Haven’t watched your videos in a while. But this is a good reminder to watch more and motivation to clean! I love showers to get clean. But a bath is comforting. I love essential oils. After moving to Arizona 4 years ago, and working 60 hours a week, I realize I need to do a thorough cleaning of my house. But I also have to find another job. My 97-yr-old private-pay client passed away in December. Life seems overwhelming, how do I clean instead of getting depressed? It’s difficult to find the clients I serve.

  322. What solution are you using??

  323. ❤️❤️❤️

  324. What is your multi purpose cleaner you use.

  325. Great video! I like how your cat sat in that one spot for a very long tme just watching you….whzat a cutie!

  326. Its funny that at school i will do anything to help my teacher organise and clean but at home im just a lazy mess!😂

  327. Wow! Your house is so big! You must walk miles each day xxx

  328. The Cat in the Kitchen Background is so cute👍.

  329. Hi lady, just found you. I find when I get sick… I forget how to clean and that’s when everything piles up. I can get sick for up to 2wks. At that point, ya just dont care, ya just want to attend to yourself and health. Then ya turn around and BOOM… everything is a mess, and you then realize what happened. LOL its then that I need a refresher course on how to get back on track. So, THANK YOU ♡♡
    (I’m hoping you have a video on sanitation, I’m going to look, I dont want to re-infect myself)

  330. everything you do ~ I spread into 2 or 3 days. one for the kitchen and fridge and countertops and lights and cabinets and everything organized. two for the bathroomssss and showerssss which DO NEED a scrub at my house and three for laundry and floors. I fit in a trip to the store afternoon of day two because the trash has gone for the week and there’s room in my fridge for the fresh. I move these days around depending on my work. I work long days at work, so 3 on and 4 off. Lately, I start clean days with a walk with the dog around the block. I have a more clear head and it’s my ‘warm-up’. Funny enough, it really helps energize me.

  331. Классная квартирка. Beautiful house, like, у американцов у всех почти красивый дом со вкусом.

  332. I’ve used Bar Keeper Friend on my sink in the past. Is this harsh on the Makers micro fiber cloths?

  333. Do you clean with a dry microfiber cloth?

  334. I’m a very bad and lazy cleaner! I don’t have any idea where to start, but starting to implement some of the guides, a little bit of the 3-Wave-technic. I really want to clean on a marathon, but I always end up sitting on the couch and resign, because all is so overwhelming, and I do apologize to my friends when they come over spontaneously and I don’t have any time to clean up in the first place! Thank you so much for your videos and advices, hopefully in this new decade I can motivate myself to have a cleaner space for me and my boyfriend. I’ll try to do both, especially when we didn’t have a good clean for a longer time.

  335. haha, but even your messes all look incredibly organized.

  336. I try to do a routine and listen to music. By listening to music, it helps me keep going. Sometimes I will do a deep down marathon cleaning, it takes longer yet it is worth it!

  337. Love the clean me videos .. it’s like a summation to all the hacks and tips video

  338. Mix of both

  339. I love to be able to watch cleaning videos so at the end, it feels like “I” accomplished something.

  340. My full house is the size your living room. So its full cleaning everyday cause there’s so much stacked on shelves. No matter how much I push things in, they still land up on tables and shelves

  341. I clean everyday….My kitchen and bathrooms is the most important things to me..Way ti get others motivated and excited to get their homeclean

  342. I loved this video, but I tend to hate long marathon cleaning sessions. Also, I very rarely have a large enough chunk of time to do that, so I tend to tackle a few things each day. It doesn’t give you that amazing feeling at the end, but I do feel I have accomplished something for the day at least.

  343. I take the waitress tip one step further and use a tray. I’ll carry over condiments and flatware over to the table and when the meal is done for the take away.

  344. House cleaning can be a chore. Thanks for the tips on using micro fiber cloths – Franis from

  345. Repeatative …. how much cleaning one can do with same boring place …. just making fool people 😡

  346. I am the only one that finds cleaning the bathroom with the hair down disgusting ? Like i can’t i need to have my hair tied up or in a bun and i also wear gloves especially for the toilet 🤢 ! And what’s up with the long sleeves while cleaning ? YUCK !

  347. I 💙 that blue color in the bathroom.

  348. Can u share your washer and dryer model number

  349. By the way, where do u shop for your outfit? They are all soooo awesome! Thanks!

  350. Hi. I would like to know, how long did it take you to finish cleaning the kitchen? Cause my kitchen is always a mess and I feel like it takes me forever to clean it. Thanks!

    1. Oh. You mentioned at the end how long you cleaned the kitchen. Thanks. Greetings from Germany. 🙂

  351. You’re the best. Thank you for great content

  352. You’re amazing 👏😢🥰 you’re a legend and Chad too. Beautiful home xx

  353. If this is a “2”, I, afraid what my house is right now 😂😂

    1. Mine will be a -50 😂 Looks like a tornado just swept through

    2. All your confessions make me feel better! 😍

    3. @Heart Break Hotel Inc same! 😂

    4. Mine is outside. I would tell someone I got robbed if they visited eight now lol

    5. Just had the same exact thought 😂😭

  354. I have same ugg slippers

  355. I feel like your hair would look so great with a long messy (shoulder length) bob!!

  356. In our home we so small frequent cleans. We are a family of 10 and there is no way we are doing huge cleans on the regular. Everyone has their job and they do it 3 times a day. We do big cleans about 4 times a year with our most in depth clean being in Dec. before family comes (we usually host about 40 people). Then we enjoy a wonderful rest (with small frequent cleans) into the New Year. 🙂 Great video and I’m glad you commented at the end how long it actually took you. It really looked like it took you no effort. Your home is beautiful.

  357. I noticed in the video that your used one cleaner to clean all your surfaces in your bathroom: mirrors, counters, toilet and floor. This is great! What do you use?

  358. I love the Cinderella method at the bathroom floor👌. I even do a mid week paper towel floor cleaning, Cinderella style to keep them ready.

  359. Clean My Space do you use only your diy all purpose cleaner?. I can see only one bottle in all the video! Wow!

  360. Love your channel and inspiration

  361. No way leaving food all over n not scraped off, not in my house

  362. I love the kitty watching you clean the kitchen. Haha!

  363. I’m tired after watching this video.

  364. Please never use kitchen towels to dry ur dishes, 🙈no matter how many times u clean them they are not 100% clean, unless u put them in the microwave 1 min, and still let ur dishes air dry.

  365. I have a 2 part question regarding baking soda use and also one of your DIY recipies…
    1-I have been using the tub/tile cleaner recipe and I’m not sure if I’m doing anything wrong but it’s so thick i seem to be rinsing forever, any thoughts?
    2-I use baking soda boxes once a month in my fridge/freezer. Could I re purpose that baking soda for cleaning after the month is up or would it have bacteria or anything else that would mean I just need to throw it out?
    I hope it’s ok to ask a question here!!

  366. I have 30 mins to do some serious clean! Thanks for the motivation!! I love these 🙂 i feel like my life is out of control, but one thing i can do to feel calmer is to tidy declutter and clean!

  367. I struggle with fatigue, really cannot do a marathon clean, it would kill me, so it helps me to know how much time each task takes, and plan when I have 5 minutes, what I can accomplish in that time, what I can do sitting down, and use my energy part of my day for the harder things. I also have arthritis so it is hard for me to get down and scrub, so I end up leaving those things way too long before I have to just do them and then recover later. It would be great to see more tips for saving energy, keeping things clean with physical challenges, etc.

  368. But to clean the changing pad then continue cleaning the dresser?

  369. I have maaaaajor couch envy lol

  370. How many days a week do you clean

  371. Wow I love it. Was looking for kitchen and vacuum lines but this was amazing. Thank you for sharing so my home looks professionally done

  372. Love your videos. How do you make your DIY all purpose cleaner? It is safe for granite volunteer tops right?

  373. Pray for me. I just put my bed linens in the washer lol!! Here we go!

  374. Love a good weekly marathon clean, but I also ‘clean as I go’ daily

  375. I rather clean in small intervals

    I hate cleaning that’s why my room is a mess most of the time.

    Also its cleaner now than it was on December 25 2019 but still a mess it’s my laziness kicking in.

  376. What brand of toilet and toilet lid do you have in the blue bathroom? I wanna get a new one and I love yours

  377. Oh dear,if your home ever gets to a 2, mine is absolutely in the negative 30’s.😬😬😬

    1. Megan EASTIN same. No shame

  378. Girl….. your house is LITERALLY still NOT messy😂

    1. @Strawberry Mooches everyone has a different view on “messy”. I just thought it was funny that she said it was worse than other videos shes done 😅 my messy is toys EVERYWHERE, laundry piled up, kitchen a mess bc people use stuff and leave it lying around, etc.

    2. Morgan Horton lol!! All of these channels are so bizarre. I mean… they are great motivation. I’ll give them that. But it’s completely not realistic that the normal persons home looks like this. My messy is my kids spilling juice on the floor and it not getting properly cleaned up for a week or two lol. I just wish these people would stop claiming they have messy houses. It’s a little irritating.

    3. Right?! The only really messy room was the kitchen 😂 If she thinks that’s a 2, she should see my house 👀 it’s a -2. 2 toddlers and 2 grown ass men who cant pick up after themselves smh

  379. Disaster. Overwhelm. Massive frustrating cleaning.

    1. I felt the same way today :_( hope u feel calmer and more peaceful soon friend

  380. Where can I get a large dish towel like that?

  381. Thank you for the realness! Our main goal as a family with 2 under 2 in 2020 is to be more organized when it comes to the chores. You are a huge inspiration in this adventure!

  382. I tend to meticulously clean if I do a marathon cleaning. If I’m going to do it, I need to get it all! umm…I too don’t like to clean but yah it feels better afterwards.

  383. damn baby u fine! can i go clean ur house with u?

  384. I prefer small because I work and am only home long enough to make a mess lol

  385. Love the Cleaning Marathons, but where to find the time? But I prefer them! Happy New Year Everyone!

  386. I feel like small frequent cleans would be more efficient but I’ve always been, and probably always will be, a long marathon cleaner.

  387. How many rags do you end up with after a full house clean?

  388. Wow that is really Crazy… how do you make your house messy like that? is that real or just for making video?

  389. The house is huge, the master bedroom looks like I can fit my house inside, LoL!

  390. I prefer small cleans 🧼

  391. You make cleaning look really fun it’s like having your old stuff look new

  392. I like to clean all at once. In a 3 to 5 hour period. But I do a daily clean which is a quick pick up before bed like toys, clothes, garbage. I do big declutter deep clean once a week and a separate laundry day. I hate feeling like im always cleaning… I have 2 big dogs, toddler and a partner that make a lot little messes

  393. I just love that she is a cleaning guru but she shows that she is also down to earth really I thought that only my kitchen looks like this some times

  394. Found you through a dyson review and I clean just like you do! Lol love how you call it the waves!

  395. When I was younger I used to do ridiculous marathons. I would clean from the time I got up until I fell into bed at 1am or some ungodly hour. The house looked great but then my body was broken the next day and I couldn’t keep it up. Over the years I’ve changed the way I clean (watching youtube for ideas) and I do my own version of fly lady, I use lots of your great ideas too! Routines and rotation work best for me and the more I do it the better I’m getting at it. However every now and then when “life” happens and I just can’t follow my own routines I have to do a marathon but (because I’m older) I’ve only got about 3hrs in me before I know I need to quit so I try and plan it very strategically how I can put it all to rights…kind of a lick and a promise, then restart the routines again from there.

  396. Thank you for being real and letting us see the real mess! It makes you more authentic and makes me feel so much better. I’m a bit of a hoarder and cleaning is just daunting. I love watching your videos. You always make me smile. Thank you❤️

  397. I like frequent but usually end up marathon. 😭

  398. Her dirty is my clean lol.

  399. I do marathon cleans bc I like everything to be clean at once…

  400. Okay so now how long does this cleanliness last for you guys ?

  401. The only thing is , when I marathon clean , which is like every friggin weekend it’s so disheartening when I have to cook and clean up all over again that night and my little family seems to make a huge mess lol .. so if you can , order food out or make something super easy so it’s less cleanup after you already did your marathon cleaning for the day lol

  402. I bet your house would never be this dirty..
    You did it on purpose.. because you are one of the cleanest person I know on earth

  403. You know, I don’t even believe this kitchen. I’ll bet you left this on purpose so you’d have something to clean. Everything else is believable. Now my kitchen, it does occasionally get this way. Most nights, I’m on top of it but every now and then it gets a little cray cray. Now that I’m home and have the time, I enjoy small daily sessions rather than a cleaning marathon. When I was a young wife with children and worked outside the home, I did the weekend marathon.

  404. Wow your hubby does a great job at making the bed!

  405. I wouldn’t really trust your cleaning company .

  406. What is in the Pink and purpel Bottle you Art cleaning your bathroom/ Kirchen ?

  407. Small cleaning sessions for me

  408. I like the major whole house cleanings. Also, I’d like for you to go over all the cleaners you use and how you use them. I see there are some listed but no glass or all purpose cleaners listed. Thanks Melissa – love your show.

  409. No marathon cleaning anymore after turning 60!

  410. Any comment from you on Norwex Microfiber! I love them!

  411. maybe giving Riley a notebook to put the stickers in will cut down on the sticker cleaning❤

  412. Are you using all purpose cleaner on mirrors?

  413. No matter where I live my house needs to take 3 hours max to clean otherwise it feels too big!

  414. I like cleaning a little everyday that way my house always seems clean. There are certain things that I do everyday like clean the kitchen and do laundry and make my bed. But everything else I do as needed.

  415. I love your videos. Will you please list your paint colors? I love them all!!!

  416. I wish you said what cleaners you are using during the video. Like on the mirror?

  417. Kind of silly question to all: what do you do with the dirty microfiber/cleaning clothes? Do you put them in the wash immediately or have a bin for them to launder them later? What about the ones that get wet, like when cleaning the kitchen counters? Please comment. Thank you.

    1. Same question

  418. I prefer small more frequent cleans, but end up doing marathon cleans 😬 procrastination at its finest. Your channel has helped me be more efficient with whichever method I am doing though! And the Maker’s line is a game changer!

  419. Any suggestions on tools to clean the baseboards easy?

  420. It’s hard for me because I’m a hoarder and always exhausted with cancer

  421. I like the FlyLady system. I tweekt it to suit me so no more marathon cleaning any more.

  422. Watching your cat watch you clean the kitchen is quite entertaining 😂

  423. I hate marathons! I’m all about doing it in jobs (JOB – just one bite). It takes some planning though, so you don’t forget hidden areas….

  424. Hey! I purchased $150AUD 🇦🇺 of the clean maker microfiber cloths. They are lovely quality. The dish drying towels are massive. You can easily dry a large dinner plate with plenty of fabric. All absorbent and made well. Those little purple cloths are cute. I use one in the shower, one under my tea mug while i make it. They are just hand size with nice rounded corners. ( a lot of the cheap microfiber cloths don’t and their overlocked corners unravel in the washing machine). I purchased when on sale. Love this video. Thanks Melissa. Here’s to us all and our own clean sparkling environments for 2020

  425. I bought 2x books of your Clean My Space on Amazon for my mother and sister for Christmas and they can’t stop thanking me! I “cheated” by just watching your videos and learning but holy moly your book is a must-have for *anyone*! Btw, I’m known as the cleanest and most organized person in my entire fam. Many thanks for all your hard work and help.

  426. Could I use a fragrance oil instead of essential oil for cleaning?

  427. I love my waffle weave dish towels so much!!!

  428. Thank you

  429. Hi can you please make a how to clean stove burner grate video . We moved in a new house this things are disgusting tried with pretreatment , soaking and scrubbing. It is still not clean🤦‍♀️

  430. I have to do the shorter cleanings rather than all at once because if I do too much at one time I will exhaust myself and go into a mental low because of exhaustion. When I come out of the low everything is a mess and I have to start all over. So shorter cleanings to tidy, deep cleaning one area or room a day. Since my way isn’t working well for me I am learning from you so I can do better.

  431. Wow,this wad soo motovating!! I clean a lil everyday and put things back in their places before bed. It mskes mornings a lot easier! 🙂

  432. I feel like this isn’t even a deep clean, every time I cook I wash all the kitchen top to bottom, I clean all the cabinets, cooker, tiles, surfaces, oven and microwave. It sounds like a lot of work but it truly isn’t takes me 15min, and I never let dirty dishes I like to tackle them straightaway otherwise I’ll get overwhelmed in the morning. I keep my house clutter free and I like only my ornaments and decorations around, so even if I don’t deep clean my house for a long time it always looks tidy. I fix my sofa pillow and throws before I leave the living room so it stays tidy, then once a week I’ll vacuum and mop the floors but before I do that I always dust beforehand, I dust the wall corners, the windows, picture frames, mirrors, tv’s sideboards etc.I have a real leather sofa and I wash it regularly with antibacterial products and then I use leather polish that make it look brand new. I have my own rituals and I’m a bit OCD but I like my house to be tidy and clutter free, if I see things laying around they give me a headache, I can’t even sit down in my living room and watch tv if there is something on the table

  433. i clean my bathroom with the “cinderella method” too LOL it’s super efficient

  434. Love the kitty supervising in the kitchen.

  435. the cat on the table …. Noooooooooooo

  436. hher 2 is like my 6 not lying haahh

  437. I don’t mean to hate, because I quite enjoyed this video. But surely I can’t be the only one bothered by the fact that she mentioned “accidents” happening on the baby’s changing table, wiped that area first and then spread it all over the dresser, the handles and doorknob.. lol whaa?

  438. Share the cleaning with your partner and you’ll save time!

    1. Fayth Osborn he’s wrong. Cleaning is not just a woman’s job

    2. Yeah well if you have a bf like mine i love him so yeah but he says that i am the women and i sould be the one cleaning not him so it dosn’t wirk like that

    3. Vivian Arregui they don’t clean the same lol

  439. Could you do a video on cleaning a leather couch/chair, I’m going to try one i found on pinterest for my white leather couches. I thought you would have a video on that but I haven’t found it.

  440. there are toys under your brown couches

  441. Hi! I clean professionally and I wanted to know how many fiber cloths do you use?

  442. I love the pink walls in your bedroom!

  443. I have started my own cleaning business at the age of 60. Good to see that I use very similar methods as you do, specific to details I have taught/learned myself over my lifetime. I also spray down pots and pans in kitchen when I first start in there. Pre-treating is key as you mention. I also have decorating history so I just wish I could come decorate your house for you. I am sure you spend all your time and energy into your business and family. Keep up the good work teaching others.

    1. Due to short battery life, I recommend using the Shark Rocket. It has so much power I am amazed at what it removes even from a clean house. I use vinegar, Dawn and Hydrogen Peroxide for cleaning entire house. Started this due to asthma, but have found all of my clients want to get chemical free, too. I prefer using Walmart’s cheap wash cloths; 18 in pkg for just $4. Very absorbent. I buy them in packs of different colors and use colors for bathroom, whites for kitchen and cleaning. I encourage others to do one area/zone a day. I also do a lot of organizing so would love to see more videos on that, too.

  444. Okay, that looks more like my house when it’s a mess.

  445. I do both 😉 marathon once a week, and a little bit every other day. Good job involving hubby in the cleaning!

  446. hand washing waste water

  447. I loved this so much! More please?!! 💜👍

  448. With a toddler and being in college fulltime it has to be frequent small cleans to stay on top of stuff because I just don’t have time for marathon cleans

  449. Cute🤩

  450. That hair though 💁🏻‍♀️

  451. I have been watching you for the past few years. You have made cleaning look so easy that cleaning my big home seems like a breeze.
    Last year I bought a really expensive plastic top to protect my table cloths from getting stained but it has now few permanent stains thanks to my kids on which I have tried from magic eraser to bleach etc but the stains won’t go.
    I hope you have a cleaning solution to remove
    Stains from a plastic cover. Thanks.

  452. Can you do a cleaning routine or tips for a family who had been sick? For example, disinfecting areas etc? Thanks!!

  453. The best bathroom tub, sinks and shower cleaner is 50/50 mix of vinegar and Dawn or other dish washing liquid. Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil.

  454. I really love that grey carpet in the nursery! Anyone know where she got it?

  455. I do both. Marathon clean usually rarely do so unless I having guest. A room a time if no one cleaning. So true once put the random stuff and trash doesn’t belong in that room away cleaning part is so much easier. I usually just declutter any flat surfaces (vanity, tables book book shelves) stuff not even suppose be there. Second round usually dusting and third vaccuming and mopping. People forget start from top work way down that why take so long.

  456. Hi my name is Kara Eldridge and I live in Wichita, KS and I just personally wanted to let you know I always love watching you vlogs 🙂 your last one was so amazing 🙂 I was curious if you have ever heard of norwex products! I am a full time nanny and I do norwex on the side and I personally love the products because they are not only great for the environment but also a great safe product for us to use 🙂 all you need is water and the microfiber 🙂 I always see you cleaning and picking up around the house 🙂 I use to use alternative, safer products but I am glad I found norwex 🙂 I don’t have anymore cleaners and just have norwex products 🙂 I just thought I would share because I love Norwex’s mission and I know you seem like you really are conscious about what products you use 🙂 my personal Facebook page is @karasnorwexgroup and my website link is
    If you have any questions, I would love to help 🙂 hope you had a great Christmas and a new year! Keep up the great work!
    Kara 🙂

  457. So much value and motivation in your voice over! Love it!

  458. you clean a lot why don’t you carry a cleaning cart to put all your cleaners and wiping clothes dirty and clean, hope it helps.

  459. You have such a beautiful home! Love the video, really procrastinating my cleaning today.

  460. My first video of yours that I have ever seen. Well done! I always make my bed inb the morning and declutter regularly but only do a deep clean whole house all on one day about once a month.

  461. No marathon cleaning here! I’m older and have a very bad back. I tackle a room or a couple small spaces at a time for serious cleaning. Everyday tidying and wiping helps a lot!

  462. Get all the crap done in one go! Hate it but love the end 😊👍🏻, thankyou Mellisa x

  463. This whole video is amazing, but where is the dining room table from pleaaaase

  464. Your dining room has that Cat in the hat feel… 🙌🏼

  465. 1 am and I’m house (disaster) cleaning and took a break to watch Melissa clean…🤦🏼‍♀️

  466. The cinderella method for cleaning the floor is great. You get a close up view of everything and can really get into corners. It’s also great because you can clean skirting boards at the same time.

  467. Why did you not use your central vacuum cleaner it dose a better job and is easier

  468. Your amazing 😉 thank you now am going to clean 🧼 up 😀love your washing machine wow for the stickers try orange oil come straight off

  469. Small Frequent Cleanings

  470. Hi!! Thank you so much for this video!What is your ethnicity? Your hair is so beautiful!!!

  471. Where did you get your comforter from?! It’s so nice!!

  472. Hey Melissa, HNY!! In your kitchen, I love the print on wall by dining table … looks like a take on Slim Aaron’s pool scene … where can I find!? Love love love

  473. I clean twice a day during the week (before and after work) I deep clean and declutter on weekends. I know that sounds like a lot, I enjoy having a clean house.

  474. What formula do you use for your all purpose cleaner?

  475. Where did those bath towels come from?! 😍

  476. Genuine Q – does your Dyson stick handle that entire house? It’s a very large house and just wondering how the battery handles it? Thanks

  477. I never wear gloves when cleaning the toilet! I clean it right before I go for a shower.

  478. My tip is – small home = less to clean! Sure, I love the look of large homes but boy, I don’t envy you with all this cleaning to do.

    1. So true! In our small appartment, it take 2 hours at two to range and clean objects ans dishes, wash cloths, clean and desincfect floors, walls, tissu things, ventillations and windows. It’s so sastifiing and fast to do.

    2. And less stuff, less clutter. It really makes a difference.

  479. @clean my space: I watched your video with my youngest son (6years old) and he cleaned the dining table with my orange oil cleaner & leather chairs with leather wipes! YAY!!! 🎉Thank you ♥️

  480. Does that bath tub mat have mildew stains or does it have a decorative pattern that’s hard to see on camera?

  481. Having a big, beautiful house probably helps. And unfortunately is not relatable for a lot of us. I wouldn’t mind cleaning it if I had it 😄

  482. Love seeing your eminence collection! Would love to see a video on storing skin care! Happy new year 🎆

  483. Did she have a hydro flask?


  484. I watched this video on Christmas eve before we had a party and I got the same amount of stuff done in like 2 and half hours! It was great! I LOVE these videos!

  485. What do you do about pet hair? I am constantly walking around with a pet hair roller in the living room and on bed covers

  486. I tend to try and declutter daily, and deep clean one area at a time, but more often than not, the marathon happens lol

  487. Thx for showing your kitchen its what i needed to tackel mine💖

  488. Small cleans are easier 😀

  489. I’d love to know what brand towels, hand towels, teatowels you use

  490. Anyone know what kind of cleaner in that spray bottle that she’s using on EVERYTHING? Instead of having to use different cleaners?

    1. @Saiful I. that’s what I kind of thought. However, I’ve heard that vinegar shouldn’t be used on unsealed grout or on marble or granite and it doesn’t kill the germs that give you colds, etc. Thought maybe there’s something out there that does!

    2. I use one part vinegar and two parts water.

  491. Hi Melissa, thanks for this video! I personally like to do small but frequent and consistent cleans instead of one big marathon only because I feel very tired afterwards and I don’t have 4-5 hours to do it. I watch your videos for tips and inspiration…. thanks ☺️

  492. *🎉🎉Happy New Year❗️*
    *”2020!” 🍾🥂💙Love, Lisa🥳🥰*

  493. Would love any tips on cleaning a dark granite composite sink. Constant white dry ‘spots’. Nothing I’ve tried really works.

  494. Her: I’m SUPER lazy

    Me: yet you clean for 5 hours???

  495. What was the spray you used. It looked so nice to just use one product instead of like 10 different one’s lol

  496. I prefer to do quick cleanings, but every so often I just fall behind and it becomes a mess and requires a major clean. Sometimes I just can’t get it all done so I’ll focus on the most important, the kitchen and bathroom one day and the next work on the living room, dining room and bedrooms the next and then do all the floors the third day.

  497. How come no one picks up after themselves?? (Age accepting of course)

  498. Why not use a push room to move those clothes down the hall??

  499. Wearing gloves are not for you…it’s for others. It’s germs unseen by you.

  500. I always end up doing a marathon! I find that when I do ‘small’ cleaning I overthink and start to reorganize…then I just get overwhelmed.

  501. Cat be like “Eeeyy! Why aint nobody worshipping me?” Ps: Some brown blankets would look good to cover up the wear and tear on the couches though. 🙂

  502. I like to do a combination of both, Monday’s are designated for deep cleans but during the week, quick capsule task (30 min max) helps us maintain the house in order, thus spending less time deep cleaning.

  503. My favorite video to date! 😊. I definitely prefer more frequent cleans, cleaning as I go especially with two young kids.

  504. My hubby and I make the bed together. We have our most memorable times making the bed. Sometimes we laugh so hard.

  505. I would prefer to do small more frequent cleanings … but always end up doing marathons lol

  506. wht a great motivational video
    actually i am a working women so idont have enough time to organize my home but these kind of stuff make me motivated😍

  507. Melissa, you inspire me and motivated me again! Happy New Year!! 🍾 🎆 🎊

  508. Yes, I’m a weekend warrior. I keep up on the dishes throughout the week. But other than that, I get up before my hubby on Saturday mornings. Declutter, organize, and then clean top to bottom. I love your channel! Thanks for being so encouraging!

  509. What is the all purpose cleaner spray you recommend?

  510. Thank you, I needed this today x

  511. Thank you for posting this video. Happy New Year and Blessings to you and your family.

  512. What does you use to clean? Are you spraying the same on everything?

  513. l appreciate this video!! This is the motivation that l needed. Thank you so much. Great channel!

  514. I always love your cleaning videos and book, I mostly do a full house clean because it gets so out of control 🙈 Wishing you all a Happy New year from Ireland 🎉💞

  515. Hands down my fav video! Thank you for sharing. I would like to be the first type of cleaner but I’m definitely the 2nd but because I’m that type I feel like it never get anything done. 👎

  516. Your home is absolutely gorgeous! I’ve watched a few of your videos and have enjoyed each one. I prefer to do the short cleaning missions as opposed to the long ones. Have a great new year!

  517. That was more tidying than cleaning.

  518. One room at a time definitely. My bedroom is my biggest challenge . Help ! Lol

  519. It’s amazing what you consider a 2 when it comes to how dirty a house can be. I guess you haven’t seen messy yet.

  520. Inspirational

  521. 👏👏👏👏👏A wonderful way to end 2019. Have a wonderful new year!

  522. The enormous size of American houses is ridiculous 😳🤯

    Edit: America is not ‘USA only’, guys. For European standards, the size of this house is unbelievable enormous. You barely see such big houses here. So please let me just be amazed/irritated/confused/impressed/whatever.

    1. Tabi Mimja has

    2. Why is a big house ridiculous? Answer: It’s not. And this woman lives in Canada but you probably knew that before you formed your question. There’s always someone trying to down America and there are always people who try to appease the critical by saying, “Well I live in America and my house isn’t big, blah, blah, blah.” Rhetorical question: Why are people so quick to criticize America and why are some Americans so quick to appease them? Rhetorical because I already know the answer.

    3. Read your comment first then saw video and wow her house is huge- to me too much work and space.

    4. My house is the size of her living room and kitchen. Family of 3 and 2 large dogs.

    5. We recently moved from 800sq ft single bed to 1200sq ft double bed.. I think I will not upgrade from this.. this is enough for me.

  523. Where are your bath towels from? They look really nice!

  524. While it would behoove me to do small, frequent cleanings because I have Lupus (and therefore a ton of pain and fatigue), I usually end up going the marathon route. Then I’m in bed for a week. It’s a vicious cycle. And by the way, your home is beautiful.

  525. I follow the clean mama schedule and do a little everyday! I love it!

  526. Seriously?! You were talking about cross contamination while cleaning the guest toilet (@6:20) WITH YOUR HAIR DOWN…it was touching the freakin toilet….that made me cringe….now that means whatever your hair touches while you are cleaning the rest of the house will be contaminated with toilet germs…being a “professional cleaner” you should know better than that….and I hope for your clients sake you teach your staff better hygiene practices than what you showcased in this video….the takeaway: people please keep in mind that you should ALWAYS TIE UP YOUR HAIR while cleaning

  527. my kids took a crayon or something to the tv and used an essential oil spray on the tv so now we have lots of issues with the screen i dont know how to clean it! any suggestions?

  528. MashaAllah you have a very beautiful house you are so lucky. thx for the video

  529. Thanks so much for sharing, so inspirational and practical. Still have a hard time to dedicate half day for cleaning as working mom, during weekend I only have her sleep time to do it all (2×2 hours total) including my rest time. No idea how you and many others can make the time. I can do little bits of course, in whichever room we are I can tidy etc. But it never feels as clean as one major cleaning, since my child was born. 🤷‍♀️

  530. Which DIY cleaner recipe did you use that worked for both the tub and mirror so nicely?? Also, how long did this whole process take (approx) from start to finish? Thank you! I needed this motivation today!

    1. Nevermind, you said it was 5 hours. I believe it, you were hustling tho!

  531. Glad to know I’m not the only one that cleans the floor like that

  532. I could do marathon cleaning when i was quite a bit younger…but not any more. I clean in small segments of time. I’ll spend an hour cleaning a bathroom or kitchen…but that’s about my limit. Once my back starts aching, I throw in the towel.

  533. Melissa-you should hire a”cleaning” person! 🥰

  534. I like to declutter throughout the week, but on Friday afternoons or Saturday mornings I’ll do a full house cleaning.

  535. TLDR: More short, frequent cleans.
    I’ve spent a really long time dealing with chronic fatigue and veritgo, and the state of my home really shows that, but in 2020 I’m going to try harder to keep my home a place that isn’t a stressor. My goal is to get everything all clean by the end of Jan 1st (I go back to work on the 2nd) and then implement a schedule which breaks everything down into smaller tasks everyday instead of letting it get crazy. I’m so jealous that you get to do laundry whenever! My apartment is on-site laundry and I swear someone is ALWAYS using it. I’ll be so happy when I have my own house with my own washer/dryer!

  536. whts on the side of ur bed is it air purifier if so what cmpony and does it make too much noise

  537. It’s a very good idea to NEVER clean toilet before kitchen. In fact, toilet should be the last to be cleaned in the whole house.
    Toilet is considered as “dirty” germ prone. So its best practice to start from clean (kitchen) to dirty (toilet)
    Tying hair up/back is also advised to avoid getting your hair caught in things. Its actually a hazard. also so you dont rub your hair all over dirty surfaces and then rob on the clean surfaces. Your hair was rubbing onto your toilet seat and bath tub and you then went around the house rubbing the same hair all over your house.

    Folding your sleeves or wearing short sleeves is also an important practice. We can pickup germs/dirt with our sleeves.

    Wearing of gloves is also a good idea for washing bathrooms/toilets. Some people think washing of hands after is enough… but garms can hide in nails and wont easily come off when washed or else you wash your nails with brush and in some cases disaffected. You seem to think it’s ok to use bare hands just because you “know who’s used the toilets”. Because you know who’s used the toilets does not mean you know what’s sitting in their guts. So gloves are the easier option and wash hands after taking them off.

    The same bed sheets/covers that were dumped on the floor you have been walking on were picked up and straight away used on the bed.

    The same hands used to bring up the dirty clothes that were on the floors were used to touch the clean clothes that were in the washing machine.

    Your video is a good motivational video for cleaning up. I just thought I should point out these things to you.
    Thanks for sharing

  538. The cat!😂

  539. I like the Siamese cat

  540. Love watching cleaning videos like this! Lots of great tips included, too. Thank you!

  541. I like it when my whole home is clean! I definitely can work on being more efficient with my cleaning! Love your videos!

  542. Love your video 😊
    I guess I’m the kind of person who cleans a little every day. Just to stop it from piling up.
    I’m subscribing

  543. I have a question, how to I remove a stubborn cooked on stain from my self cleaning oven?

  544. Besides the everyday items such as trash and dishes, I like to do a 15 minute clean once a day or a 30 minute clean every other day.

  545. This is soo motivational! Thank you!! Ps your house is stunning I love love love the Dining room!!

  546. Enjoyed your video, thanks for the expert tips

  547. These honestly are my favorite videos. And I love watching these when I wake up because then I will get me and the little man a quick bite to eat and then i start!! I definitely try to do a room or a fee things every day. But of course a full marathon clean happens when your busy!

  548. Totally not related to the video, but I wondered for some time now… What happened to your 2nd cat, Paisley? 👋🏻

  549. I would love to see a how to clean your sofa. ♥️

  550. Clean My Space this video is amazing because it gives you the gestalt overview of your methods, but I love the short focused ones too. Thank you so much! What do you use to pretreat dishes? Also, do you leave an all purpose spray in each room or carry it from room to room? Do you have any videos that focus on hand washing dishes exclusively? Lastly, do you recommend scrubbing, soap dispenser wands for the shower, like the ones made by scotch or oxo? Happy New Year, Melissa. Love you, Girl, you are my cleaning guru and I needed one really badly. Still doz! I hate cleaning because of wrist injury and your guidance has helped me see cleaning as a fun challenge instead of torture. Having a clean and tidy home goes a long way to support feeling peaceful in life because your home is your sanctuary from it.

  551. Your home is so beautiful ❤️❤️

  552. I like to do long cleaning (with music) and like you say the results is worth it.

  553. Yes I like long cleaning 👍👏💕

  554. I love a good marathon clean but cleaning as I go keeps my mind at ease. ☺️

  555. first time here what cleaning product are you using?

  556. Definitely small more frequent cleans!!

  557. frequent

  558. I always clean my whole house flooring with hand and knee method.i only use stick mop for quick mopping or if I am tired or don’t want to do.

  559. Marathon cleans for me are more organized and enjoyable.

  560. Love your dinning room decor

  561. Before having kids I did a marathon clean every Sunday. Now speed cleans when ever I have time and energy

  562. Where do you live

  563. Marathon clean if we’re going to clean most areas at home if we became too busy at work or too lazy haha. But I prefer small cleans like 30 to 1hr per area 🙂

  564. I have to do A little at a time because of health problems. Do you happen to know a good vacuum that is really light weight on heavy shag carpet.

  565. STILL nowhere as close to as bad my place is

  566. What sad people watch this crap . If you dont know how to clean your own house then your a filthy pig. Or many you havent got as much time as the maid in this video who gets payed to do it

  567. Wow there’s really content for everything 😂

  568. But placing everything on the floor ….the floor is dirty and then those items are brought back up to a clean counter 🤷‍♀️

  569. I m following you from so many days and really you helps me lot lot lot thank you 🙏🏻 you have such a big house 🏠 I liked it

  570. I love this video. It was so satisfying to watch.
    I’m not sure if I prefer marathon or small frequent cleaning. Sometimes when I start cleaning parts of my house, I get bitten by the “cleaning bug” and I just keep cleaning for another hour or two until I am happy with the house or exhausted. Thanks for this video.

  571. What did you have in the purple spray bottle to clean your rooms with?

  572. Hello! I do Clean with me videos too, and this was very helpful/motivational ☺️ Thank you!

  573. I know when things Messi I walk into a house and it’s messy I can see the end results a nice clean perfect everything in his place I can see that that’s . I am look around and see for I can start first and I do my thing

  574. I need some advic,what is the way to remove old pee smell from tile?!HELP!!!

  575. I prefer marathon cleaning personally, I love to have my house perfect for guests and just for my husband and cats and I lol

  576. Is this a 2? If this is a 2, then my house is about a -5.

  577. I used to love the marathon clean, but have been trying out the Fly lady system….and it is working for me because I am not spending all this time cleanin!

  578. thats not even messy its just clutter messy is takeaway containers everywhere kids toys everywhere like every toy they own, food scraps, mouldy sandwiches kids have hidden half eaten apples, clothes scattered from one end of the house to the other dishes piled up floors dirty from constant foot traffic and much much more

  579. In the search for a new washer and dryer was wondering, Melissa, what brand is yours?

  580. ohmygah, your hair’s gorgeous!

  581. Sorry if this is already in the comment section but what is your disinfecting all purpose cleaner? Would love to know! Trust your knowledge 😊👍

  582. I do a deep clean once a month… takes about 7 hours. Then I do a weekly “pick up” . The bathrooms and kitchen get a little extra during these pickup sessions.. but the whole process takes about 3 hours. I do one load of laundry a day. I do the BIG stuff quarterly… ceiling fans, light fixtures, wipe down walls. Been doing this for about 3 years and it works great for me!👍😊 oh yeah…. the months with 5 weeks… I get that week off!😉

  583. 💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕

  584. *** VIDEO REQUEST *** or i can just ask you, how can i clean greasy dust caked ceiling pot lights, there above our stove top and our fans not the best, let me know, thank you! big new fan of your channel! thanks!

  585. I do small cleans because I get sick of cleaning after an hour. That said I am fanatic about keeping the kitchen clean and all countertops clear of stuff which mysteriously seems to lands there.

  586. Ou ka palé trop!!!!

  587. I prefer small and frequent cleans (30 minutes at a time). Each day, I can do a task and have the house done by week’s end. I don’t like spending most of my weekend cleaning.

  588. Small frequent cleaning

  589. What was in the spray bottle?

  590. What were the books you mentioned? Looking to get a library started for my lil girl thank you.


  592. Frequent, brief cleaning is my preference. I love a house that is consistently clean and I detest spending a whole weekend cleaning.

  593. I clean both ways!! Great video 👍 Love your new house 😉

  594. Also, what do you do with Riley when you are cleaning?? I find my little bug will undo most cleaning so I can only do it durning nap or evening sleep!!!

  595. I like marathon cleaning if I have the energy / inspiration. But I like marathon “deep” cleaning not going from absolute mayhem to clean. I try to clean a bit daily and weekly marathon “deep” clean

  596. Weird but where’s are your leather couches from?💕

  597. she has a cat- how can she use microfiber cloths? Mine collect and hold the cat hair like nobody’s business..have to use the expensive and environmentally unfriendly evil paper towels

  598. I don’t understand. My house has to be cleaned DAILY (im talking mopping sweeping dusting the whole bit) to be even HALF as clean as that house STARTED OUT. I have no kids, but Ive got a big dog and two cats…is that why? Its soooo frustrating and unfair! boohoo first world problems lol

  599. Your washing machine setup looks amazing!

  600. Hi Melissa! I like to do specific things during the week like dust one day, vacuum one day, mop the floors, one day etc., so that my house pretty much stays clean. However, I went crazy this weekend and spend about six hours taking down my christmas trees and decorations. I know what you mean–such a relief and sense of accomplishment!!

  601. I need to get my butt into the small cleaning bits. I always end up doing marathon ones then I yell at myself like this could be so much easier lol

  602. Tell me plz ur dining room paint colour name

  603. If that’s a 2, then my place is at least -5.

  604. even your mess looks put together, almost like staged hahaha I love clean with me videos!!!! ♥

  605. Super video. BTW may i know how many m2/sq.ft your house is 🤔

  606. هل فيه عرب😂لي عربي يحط لايك

  607. I see you use Eminence!?! My salon sells this brand and I LOVE it

  608. I “general clean” one room a day, and then on Sunday I do large cleaning projects. I vacuum on days that my spouse is away for work, he works from home most of the time. I am handicapped, so my spouse does the items I can not. It works for us. I have learned a lot from you about cleaning, and I enjoy your videos.

  609. I’m a marathon cleaner

  610. I definitely prefer small frequent cleans – spend 10-15 minutes daily and everything looks nice plus I am not exhausted afterwards. Also, this way I am not demotivated or dreading to start cleaning.

  611. Can you share some tips to clean our space with baby around? Thx before 🙂

  612. I’d rather clean a little everyday so that i don’t spend half a day or all day cleaning, great motivation watching you!

  613. Your messy home is what my clean home looks like.😂

    1. Yes, she’s so adorable! My house is saying “Hold my beer…”

    2. for bois we dont know the meaning of a clean house

    3. 😭😭😭😭😂😂😂😂😂

    4. Same lol

    5. Same!! I’m so mad rn LOL!! But good for her that she thinks this is messy. She’s doing so well!!

  614. Melissa… What brand and model are your washer and dryer…??? I really like them. =(^-^)=

  615. does she ever mention what’s in the “purple” bottle that she keeps spraying all over surfaces? did i miss it? i know she talks about an “s” pattern over and over .. are there essential oils in there? curious.

    1. She said all-purpose cleaner (:

    2. I am wondering the same thing about the cleaner. I use a mixture of 1/2 water; 1/2 cleaning vinegar, and a few drops of Dawn in an old Method All Purpose Cleaning bottle. It works well with me and cleans all surfaces.

    3. @molly mcguire oh, that’s easy enough, thx 4 noticing. i will try that. i know it works on cleaning your jewelry w/ a toothbrush. never used it 4 cleaning other items. ( ;

    4. Beth Edwards I just looked on her website. If she’s using her all-purpose cleaner, it’s a drop of Dawn dish soap with water.

    5. Beth Edwards I’m wondering the same thing Beth. I don’t think she ever said.

  616. Great motivational vid. Ty😍😘

  617. Why Americans houses are sooo big?😱 I always wonder What’s the point?
    Hi from Europe 🤘🏽

  618. I love the large dish towels!

  619. 2020 will be my Year of Being Cleaner, so I was happy to find your channel! Subscribed, ordered my cloths, but you have SO many videos and I can’t find exactly what cleaning solution you’re using? Thanks!

  620. Woahhh… that washing machine and tumble dryer look like two space ships! Is this normal across the pond??

    1. I wouldn’t say, “normal”. Those units are popular, but expensive. Most of us have standard appliances. Not pretty, but functional. It is pretty normal to have both a washer and dryer in the US vs just a washer and hang drying.

  621. I’m laughing at your cat in the kitchen just watching you! Lmao 😂 ours does the same! Thank you for the inspiration, I’ve watched you from my first apartment (watching your videos when I was too embarrassed to call and ask my mom) to now owning my own home! Thank you and your family for making me laugh at myself and cleaning my space!

  622. Wow. Even though I don’t have anywhere near that big a living space, (a 1062 sq ft apartment vs a sprawling multi-story house), I never let my space get that messy. But then, we just don’t throw things like towels and clothes on the floor and leave them for days – that’s simply not where they belong.

  623. I’ve been trying to do small cleaning sessions, but I realized it makes me feel like I’m never finished. Carving out a chunk of time for a marathon clean is harder, but then I’m done!

  624. Not sure where to comment, but how do you clean a yoga matt? I don’t have a traditional yoga matt, but it is similar. I did store it in the garage at one time and no matter how many times I clean it or spray it with essential oil, I still smell some stinky! LOL! Any suggestions?

  625. I worked with a (British) Army cook once, and he told me the secret of their cleaning routines: Everything had to be absolutely spotless down to the last detail before they went home for the day. No doubt this was developed to prevent sickness spreading among the troops, so it had a rational basis. But at the same time, he pointed out: once you’ve got everything properly clean, it’s going to stay much easier to keep them tip-top afterwards. I tried out his system, using Melissa’s videos for inspiration, got my flat totally clean, and then developed a rota of routine jobs that would help me stay on top of things afterwards. It worked, whenever I kept things flowing. When they didn’t, I ended up using the Marathon method again. But at least I now know where to go afterwards… heigh ho, – now for a new Marathon… 😉

  626. First time viewer! I marathon clean every Sunday. I pick up and do small things throughout the week. Some weeks, I miss my Sunday clean and I feel like my whole work week is so disorganized!

  627. You’re messy kitchen totally speaks to me. With toddler twins and the holiday season….the amount of times that leftover meals are left out or dishes are everywhere is REAL. Thanks for showing it!!

  628. Tiresome just to skip on this video.

  629. In regards to your theory that if it don’t look dirty don’t clean it. Take this into consideration. I clean regardless whether it looks as if it needs it or not. A friends husband always comments that my house shines and even tho there’s is clean it don’t shine. That is the difference. Just something to think about.

  630. Any reason for the S pattern while cleaning the mirrors? Btw,loved your interview with the minimalists!! :):)

  631. Thank you for clarifying that disasters includes floods, fires, etc. I unsubscribe when I click on a cleaning video described as disaster clean up, and the camera pan shows pillows and toys on the floor. I live in the southern US and have picked up the pieces from hurricane, tornado, flood, and lightning-induced fire disasters. I love you for keeping it real and enjoy your cleaning videos!

  632. Please what’s the name and model of you washing machine

  633. Beautiful hair

  634. Your videos inspire me to clean ( no easy feat, I assure you!)
    I have a question: we have a well and the water leaves an orange stain on the tub 😢 we just renovated the bathroom and I need a way to keep my new tub “orange” free! Any suggestions?!❤️

  635. What was that took use were using on the baseboards near end of video?

  636. Loved this video! I like to do shorter cleans. However I “reset” the whole house every night before bed so everything has to be tidy for a fresh morning.

  637. I like a bit of both, marathon cleans are great, but I also love your smaller more detailed ones with tips :O) (All your videos are great)

  638. I prefer cleaning as I go along.
    Greetings from South Africa

  639. Would you have any ideas tips for people with mobility disabilities , I’ve a 3 level house and struggle with the stairs have children with disabilities also which means I have the whole house work to myself which is sometimes over whelming I do the one room or one level at a time , thank you for all your videos all the best for 2020 x

  640. Agree i need bigger kitchen towels going to Target as soon as they open

  641. I watch an episode of “Hoarders”, then your full house video. BAM. 🙂

    1. Kyansk I watch Hoarders too for cleaning inspiration. Especially when I’m exhausted lol

  642. Nothing like having a nice clean house..I have to clean my whole house every 2 to 3 days if not it feels like I go to smothering …I can’t stand clutter or dirt. ..Oh no lol

  643. Hi, What is the model of your washing machine please? The capacity looks huge and I love the little drawer for the products!

  644. I’m with the bad back brigade! I try to follow the FlyLady system so a one ish hour clean of high traffic areas on a Sunday and then a couple of shorter 10-15 min sessions in the week. Plus anything my semi feral cat has put his muddy paws on!

  645. I would love to do the smaller cleans but I usually do a marathon clean. I almost prefer to do a day (or two!) cleaning the house from top to bottom than spend 20 mins a day. I do general daily pickups but that’s it normally, motivation goes out the window for me pretty quickly with depression and anxiety, so when I’m feeling motivated I run with it.

  646. I think I might be a marathon cleaner by nature. Can’t really get my head around doing just a little bit, and I know that if I start in a room I keep going until it’s either done or exhausted

  647. Oh man, when the dishes pile up its such a THING.

  648. I have been watching your channel for years and as it turns out, there are still things that I can learn or at least try out. For example – it’s interesting you didn’t start in the kitchen. I always start there, but the truth is – it can easily take over an hour to clean it up and then Im like – I don’t have the power in me to keep going :-/ Our flat is in a need of a clean up right now – Im gonna start with the other rooms and see how it goes. Also leaving the floors for the third wave… I thought it had to be done right after second wave… but this way it makes sense… 🧼 🧽 thanks Melissa 🙏 😊

  649. Yes i love these videos no matter how repetitive they are and always wait for one until i can start my cleaning process to get motivated.

  650. I usually do bigger cleans but break it up into smaller segments with scheduled breaks.

  651. Hi ya. Are you using microfibre hand towels and bath towels? Would you rate the better than towelling towels? I ask this question as I’ve started using the tea towel ones in the pub we run and wondered about getting them for the home. I do enjoy your videos as it spurs me on to clean up. With running the business our home plummets to a ‘2’ quite often and then we play catch up. Have a wonderful New Year x

  652. Wow watching this video gave me anxiety but there is no greater feeling than a clean and neat house

  653. I finally got to watch this video (2:50am), and it did not disappoint 🙂 This is one of my favorite videos you have ever done! I really find my dh and I have different cleaning “styles.” He does most of the cooking (yeah!), but when he does, he does not clean up after himself as he goes. Therefore, when we sit for a meal, our kitchen is a disaster, drives me nuts. Also, I will not do laundry without wiping down the washer/dryer etc. which never crosses his mind… After 42yrs of marriage we “meld” well and find ways to accommodate each other 🙂 Love your channel, simply could not live without it! Your hair btw is especially pretty today 🙂

  654. Any homemade remedy tips to clean wood kitchen cabinets

  655. I love your big tea towels. I ordered some and love them. all towels here in UK are small 👍🏻

  656. I have a stylish paper towel holder in each of my bathrooms. My guests have a choice to dry hands with hand towel or paper towel. They mostly choose paper towel to dry their hands.

  657. My house is clean I just like seeing the size of these rooms, watching from UK 🤨

  658. What is the general purpose cleaner you used? And did you use it for the entire house (bathroom, floors, kitchen, tables, etc)? Thanks. This video was great! ❤️❤️

  659. I believe in your previous home at some point you had housekeepers. Will you have housekeepers in this home too?

  660. What brand washer/dryer do you have?

  661. I wish I could speed clean. I slow clean because my back hurts so bad. I clean and sit.😥

  662. What products do you use to clean surfaces?

  663. Clean as u go can’t say no! 🆗🚮✅⚠️‼️

  664. I love the color of the green wall. Can u tell me the name of the color?

  665. with children it’s impossible to do a marathon clean with out 1000 interruptions. I do more short and touch ups all the time.

  666. More frequent cleans because it makes everything easier to clean with the “marathon” cleaning. The biggest hotspot for me is dishes, really bad memories/associations with dishes and the kitchen sink

  667. Where did you get that bath mat?

  668. 🥰more of everything❣️

  669. Maybe I’m a masochist but, I would rather do the big cleanup, on a quarterly basis. Once I’m finished the results and energy in the space are so transformative. Plus I just work too many damned hours to devote to little parcels of cleaning.

  670. Hi Melissa actually share ur experience with Riley.

  671. Some items can put away after use to eliminate longer minutes of cleaning

  672. Because of my kids, I have 3, special and hyperactive boys, I want to say my house is usually a 7, there may be some crude in corners or clutter on bookcases/dressers/counter tops. but as to what I prefer cleaning schedule wise: I like to personally tackle 1 (or 2, if they’re small rooms) room a day. The kids are old enough to start helping with housework which I am always reiterating that its all of our responsibility to care for our home and space. That it’s no set persons responsibility. So they often cover “wave 1 and 3” tasks, whereas my husband and I tackle the most of “wave 2”. It has brought some clarity and understanding throughout the whole family on role-expectation.

  673. While I love the results of a marathon clean, I hate cleaning, so I split it up. Weekly I do the bedding, bathrooms and kitchen. Bi-weekly I dust. (My husband does the vacuuming, so I’m lucky there.) Periodically I do the baseboards, blinds, windows, etc. I can whip through my weekly routine in about 2 hours (not counting laundry time). The heavier tasks extend that time to be 3-4 hours. I loved cleaning until I did it as a job. Since then, I HATE it!
