While filming Little House on the Prairie, two of the cast mates from the Ingalls family could never seem to get along. Behind the scenes,…
A MUM has shared her enormous cleaning schedule which involves mopping and scrubbing the fridge every day.
Taking to the Facebook group Hinch Army Cleaning Tips, Nikole Thompson posted her huge list of chores.
Captioning a photo of her schedule, she wrote: “I am an avid cleaner, and have been since I moved out of my parent's house 12 years ago.
“We are moving to a New Build and I want to keep the house like new, so I have done a schedule for daily / weekly / monthly / annually.”
Her daily routine begins with making the beds before giving the bathroom a wipe down and proceeding to work on the laundry and hoovering before moving on to the kitchen.
Despite working a 40 hour week, Nikole still finds time to empty the toaster and clean the coffee machine every morning as well as cleaning the fridge and mopping throughout.
Monthly tasks include washing the dog beds and giving the oven a good scrub.
She has also set aside certain chores for each month such as polishing the Christmas decorations in December and steam-cleaning the carpets in April.
Fellow group members were aghast at the amount the mum managed to pack in, praising her efforts in the comments.
One wrote: “I'm far too lazy to be this organised 😊 but well done you!!”
“I absolutely love this! What a great way to do it” agreed another, with a third adding, “I’m going to try and take a leaf out of your book!”
But while most were supportive, Nikole did encounter a few who accused her of not setting aside enough time for her family, but she was quick to quash those rumours.
Responding she wrote: “Can I just say that I love my children and husband very much.
“I work 40 hours a week and manage no problem to spend quality time with them.
“This cleaning I already do but I like a good visual, which also helps with delegation 😜.
“It takes around 90 minutes of my time each day INCLUDING cooking a home cooked breakfast, preparing packed lunches and home cooked evening meal for my family.
"Often a variety of which as my husband is vegan, I do plenty for them and get plenty of time for me too. . I relax plenty and have 'me time' and family time.
“Jeeeezzz some of you are making out that I neglect my family, we are all good thanks.”
