Free Shipping and 30% off Zone Cleaning for Kids!


One day last year, we decided to take a week off school and teach the kids how to properly clean. Not that our house is exactly a mess or anything... but as a homeschooling mom, cleaning does get pushed to the side more often than I'd like to admit. Around the same time, I noticed the Zone Cleaning Program on Educents. When I also noticed it's made by the same people who make Times Tales, I was definitely sold! Now a year later, the kids still love using Zone Cleaning and even ask to use it when doing their chores. I love it! 

After Zone Cleaning came in the mail, I chose a day for our Cleaning Extravaganza.  It could not have gone more perfectly!  My kids have had chores since they could talk, pretty much, but Zone Cleaning has taught them how to be more thorough, to actually clean in a way that doesn't need to be re-cleaned by me, and it is just a godsend! 

I cannot imagine a more well spent $14! I am not even kidding--my house looks stellar and my kids have that feeling of accomplishment, knowing they've worked hard and done an amazing job.  I've tried chore charts and reward systems but this is by far the easiest and the most all-encompassing.

 The booklet includes a simple visual representation of each step to a clean room. I like that they can check off what needs to be done as it is done - it keeps them from forgetting anything and gives them a sense of accomplishment each time they check something off.  (I'm not kidding--even my older kids count off those checks and brag about them!)

The rooms included are bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living room. There are spaces for you to write additional items which is helpful for me, as well. I like that it assigns a day each week to extra jobs like dusting or wiping chairs and cabinets. That way nothing gets out of control, one chore at a time.
As a busy mom, this is just what I needed!  Cleaning is less of a burden now, and it's a blessing to be able to look around at a clean home and to relax without feeling like something more needs to be done. 

 Who's it for?
Zone Cleaning is for any parents who want their kids to do their chores with a happy heart.... the right way!  My kiddos are 8-11, ages I think are ideal for this program, but it could definitely be used with kids as young as 6 through the teen years. 

How Much is it and What Do You Get?
 The cost is $14.50 with free shipping with the coupon codes below and you get:
  • A fully-laminated flip chart, allowing for all sections to be checked with a dry-erase marker and/or customized by Mom or Dad with a wet-erase marker.
  • Instructional DVD that walks children through the process, demonstrating the correct way to complete each task. The DVD also gives parents tips on how to best utilize the program.
  • Dry-erase marker.
  • Basket labels used for cleaning the bedroom.
  • Kid-friendly Cleaning Solutions E-Book filled with frugal, non-toxic cleansers you can make yourself.
Since the kit only comes with one chart and I didn't want to spend the money on one for each child, I cut them apart by room and reattached with key rings. Voila! Each child chooses a room to thoroughly clean (or Mama chooses for them if they're being indecisive or arguing) and it works perfectly!

      It automatically adds on 2 extra charts so make sure you uncheck them. You'll find them right over where it says "add to cart". That will bring the price down to $14. :)
