My mother had a routine based on the days of the week.
Mondays were wash day, no matter what.
Tuesdays meant ironing. (Remember ironing? I barely use my iron anymore and I certainly don't devote a day of the week to it.)
Wednesdays she cleaned the upstairs. Thursdays she cleaned the downstairs.
Fridays she scrubbed the kitchen floor and took the stove apart to clean it thoroughly.
Saturdays, (if she couldn't find a daughter to do it,) she scrubbed the two porches.
