    I mop twice a week.

    However, I don't have kids yet so it may happen more often once bubs is born!

    Every DAY??? Who has the time or energy for that? I'd love my floors to be that clean though!

    I sweep, vacuum and mop usually once a week, but sometimes (like last week) I get slack and skip a week.

    I don't have kids, but I do have two cats that like bringing in bits of grass and mulch from their cat run. *sigh*

    I vacuum 1-2 times a day and mop once a week, I wipe the floor with spray and wipe if needed and I use a bucket and cloth to wipe under the dinner table almost every night.

    I am so showing DH this thread.

    He thinks any more than once a week is 'over the top' lol. In fact, he'd probably settle for once a fortnight. Maybe I should leave it that long so he can see what it would actually look like . Although I know in reality it would bug me too much and I would end up doing it sooner.

    Having said that, I do it about 2-3 times a week. I sweep under the table and any other spots that need it at least once a day.

    The people that do it all once a day amaze me too!
