How Clean Are You?! What Should You Clean And How Often!

Growing up, early Saturday morning was major chore day before I could leave the house and go play.  I would clean my room then move to the restroom that my brother and I occupied.  From there I would cleaning the living room and kitchen.  The house was always immaculate.

When I got to college I noticed that everybody did not have the same cleaning habits that I had acquired growing up.  

Then I started to wonder how much do things actually need to be cleaned?  That's when I came across this article the other day.  Check the following out!
