This week’s Flylady Zone 3 work (bathroom plus one other room)

Good morning from rather dull Copenhagen where I got my Morning Routine done early and have been for my breakfast swim/bike ride with one of my Besties, woo hoo! I enjoyed scrambled eggs with sweet chili sauce and fresh coriander, Vibeke had hot porridge. Plus hot tea in our china cups…


In Monday’s post you saw what I did for this week’s upkeep clean (the Flylady “Weekly Home Blessing Hour”. And in Tuesday’s post I told you what we have planned for dinner this week. For detailed cleaning we’re in Flylady Zone 3 this week (bathroom plus one other room). If you are new to Flylady, or need help understanding how the system works, I have a Flylady Refresher Course on YouTube!

This week I’m focusing on our main bathroom – I’ve looked at my detailed cleaning list from last time we were in this zone and have been checking off a few tasks, most of them only take a few minutes but give a nice clean feeling to the room…washing out the rubbish bin, dusting off the plants/watering them, changing over the bath mat, scrubbing the drain cover.

I also like to “shop”, “garden” and “pamper” by Flylady zone (ideas for zone 3 are here) to keep things interesting. So I’ve added some bathroom necessities to this week’s Errand List (toilet roll, shampoo, etc) and last night I repainted my toenails and did a facemask. Please don’t save these things for a “special occasion”. Every day is the special occasion!

Remember that the aim is not to get everything checked off the list, but to keep moving slowly forward. You can find detailed cleaning lists for all the zones on the Flylady website. You can also “copy and paste” my list into your own document and add your own ideas.
