When i clean the house i have a rag for dusting, one for the floor. Sometimes one for the bikes outside. One for wiping down the toilet.
I try to keep track, by remembering the color and where i last put it so that i don't end up wiping the kitchen table with the cloth i used for the toilet a day ago.
The ones not used on the toilet or the floor go in the regular laundry, the others i wash in a bucket, with cleaning stuff and my gloves on.
To make the situation more complicated, we now have a cleaner. I fear she does not really have a system, when i come home i find a pile of wet rags somewhere.
Is there a system of just some tips and tricks to help us organize the storage and washing of cleaning rags effectively and efficiently? Requirements:
- it should be easy to share (so both i and the cleaner adhere to the same system)
- it should keep apart the very dirty (floor and toilet) from the just dirty rags
- (wet) rags should not be allowed go mouldy
