Garbage Can & Garbage Drawer Step-By-Step Chore Guides

$2.50

This Chore Guide purchase includes the following two files:
*Cleaning a garbage can using a cloth.
*Cleaning a garbage drawer using a disinfecting wipe.
*Cleaning a garbage drawer using a cloth.

This Guide can also be purchased as part of the Weekly Chore Guide Bundle: https://theshineguides.com/product/all-weekly-chore-guide-bundle/

Each step of cleaning a garbage can or drawer (getting cloth or wipe, cleaning face, sides, tops, and handles, wiping drawer and handles) are included in this guide. Microfiber cloths are pictured where appropriate, but any cloth with cleanser can be used.

Guides are vertically sized 8.5×11 and are ready for digital download.

I recommend you choose the chore guides that apply to your home, print them, and laminate them (if you wish). For all chores, I offer guides that use only microfiber cloths for completely clean or green cleaning. Many times I also offer options with conventional cleaning products, such a Clorox wipes. If you would like to use a cleanser or spray with your cloth, just add it to the cloth before your child starts cleaning.

I created the Chore Guides to help chore time run more smoothly for parents everywhere. I was tired of the weekly battle of pulling our kids in from playing to have them finish chores that were only half-done or done incorrectly. I found myself teaching them the same things week after week, only to have them forget steps the next time chore day rolled around.

With these visual guides, chore time is now quick, efficient, and best of all- done correctly! I am no longer micromanaging, double checking, or hovering over my kids during chore time.

On chore day you can sort them into piles for your children, hand them the corresponding supplies, and watch the magic happen! They can be used alone or to compliment a chore-chart system.

UPDATE: I have received overwhelming feedback that these guides work as a great visual aid for children who are visual learners, autistic, ADD/ADHD, have trouble staying on task, or who otherwise need the visual steps listed for them. If you are here looking at the guides for this purpose, you are in good company! <3

I love getting feedback on how the guides are used. Please always feel free to message me and let me know how your experience is going. Thanks!

5/5

"These are absolutely perfect! I love that the pictures are of children performing the task. They help my son relate to children having to do chores. I have printed them out and put them in a binder. My son decorated the front of his 'Cleaning Binder' with cleaning stickers I had for my personal planner."

5/5

"Easy to download. It has worked great, especially for my ADHD kiddo, who needs more visual cues so she doesn't get overwhelmed."

5/5

"These are awesome! They have helped my kids do a better job at their chores on their own, and feel that they did a good job instead of a half job. Now I get more opportunities to praise them for a job well done by following all the steps of the job."
