Silverware Drawer Step-By-Step Chore Guides


This Chore Guide purchase includes the following two files:
*Cleaning a silverware drawer with a removable tray.
*Cleaning a silverware drawer with a fixed (built in) tray.

This Guide can also be purchased as part of the Weekly Chore Guide Bundle:

Each step of cleaning a silverware drawer with a fixed or removable insert is included in this guide. Microfiber cloths are pictured and recommended but a cloth with cleanser can be substituted.

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.


The Chore Guides were created in an effort to stop micromanaging chore time every week. I was showing my kids repeatedly each step of every chore we needed completed in our home. No matter how many time I walked through the tasks with them, they would inevitably miss a step (or several steps) and leave these chores only half completed and me dragging them in from playtime to redo or finish their chores.

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 hearing feedback about how the guides are working for you!


"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."


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


"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."
