What Kind Of A Cleaner Are You?

Recently in the WSJ, there was an article about "Speed Cleaners". They not only had a title for those that like to clean quickly, but also sub-categories!  It made me realize that we all have different ways of doing things - and that includes cleaning. My hubby calls me a Binge Cleaner - mainly because I'm so busy doing other things that when I get the time to clean- I go crazy.

What type of cleaner are you? I started asking and here are a few of the different types people called themselves:
The Faker - This person is really good at cleaning up before company. They get everything looking perfect and make it look like they live like this all the time. They are the ultimate fake cleaner.
Half-Baked - This person is really good at cleaning some things, yet doesn't do a great job on others. For example, the half-baked cleaner will be vigilant about doing the dishes every night, but won't bother with vacuuming for a week or two.
A Particular Day Cleaner - This person will only clean on a certain day of the week. Everything is left to cleaning day.
Clean It As You See It - This person is cleaning constantly - but in short little dabs and touch-ups. They are loving the new products designed especially for them.
It Can Wait - Do you like putting off your cleaning? You are an It-Can-Wait Cleaner. Just make sure you don't wait too long.

Here are some other types of cleaners that people shared with us today on Clean Green Talk Radio.
There was:
  • Squeeze It In
  • Type A
  • Organized
  • Fit It In
  • Clean To A Fault
  • Clutter Keeper 
What type of cleaner are you? There was one other type mentioned on my facebook conversation - DON'T. I'm not considering that answer as a type!


  1. I will admit I'm the fake cleaner. I only really clean before we have guests.

  2. Ha love this! Probably say I'm a half-baked cleaner. Love cleaning the kitchen but hate doing the bathroom.

  3. I'm definitely a It can wait cleaner. It will get cleaned, eventually.

  4. I am a kind of a person who likes the order. In order to have a clean home, you first of all need to remove the clutter. The more items you have, the more time it will take you to clean the house and they will all be always dusty. The best thing is to find a permanent place for all of the items and stick to their positions. Before you start cleaning, tidy up and the cleaning will be straight forward. I always clean the bathroom and the kitchen first, then the bedrooms after which I vacuum and mop the place.

  6. If you think that your cleaning procedure is not enough and still there are dust on left spaces better to hire for janitorial cleaning services because with that they will assure 100% cleanliness.

  8. Nicest information!!! I'll be enchanted to greatly help due to what I've learnt from here. Carpet Cleaning Norwich

  9. I am a fit it in cleaner

  10. I like Eco Friendly Cleaning. There is no need to bring harsh chemicals into the home. An other good way to keep your home "green" is to have your family and guests remove their shoes before entering the home. Shoes bring lots of toxins into the house and onto your floors. Leaving your shoes at the door will reduce this greatly. Having everyone take off their shoes will also keep a lot of dirt out of your home as well reducing the amount of house cleaning required. We use safe cleaners for your home and family at http://waterworksphoenix.com

  11. Cleaners are those people or domestic worker who cleans homes or commercial premises for payment. Their primary task is cleaning with various cleaning services and they are skilled and proficient in this work.

  16. Thanks for a fun and insightful post, Leslie. I'm definitely the "clean it as you see it" type. I subscribe to the philosophy of cleaning or picking up one thing before you leave every room (think I read it in Marilou Henner's Total Body Makeover book)... it helps keep things in good condition! Although it annoys people who want you to just settle down and relax. What can I say, we keep the world in shipshape condition :)

  17. Very useful post.. I am green cleaner and only use organic chemicals and techniques.. I am not able to clean oven well so I hire green cleaning service of Oven Cleaners brisbane and Oven Cleaning gold coast companies

  18. Depending on the situation, but I make sure daily I clean thoroughly to ensure quality cleaning.

  19. I myself, I consider a combination of one or more than two of the types you mentioned, it just depends on the situation and place.
