On a 1-5 scale, how helpful is your DH/SO when it comes to housework?
I'll give mine a big 1.5 If I ask him to do something, he will, but on his own, he is pretty dang lousy at helping out with any kind of normal household chore.
THIS!!! My dh will generally do whatever I ask of him, but he has little to NO thought process about what needs to be done on his own.
Bill will do dishes once the sink if full without me asking. But it is after a few days not after each meal.
He lives alone (we just come to visit) and he lets stuff pill up all week and then dose a major house clean, dishes, laundry, floors the day before we come So it is always clean when I get here.
I'll give mine a 3. He really tries, and actually does some things without nagging... which counts for a lot. However, my standards are WAY higher than his. He will clean the kitchen without me asking, but won't wipe the counters. Apparently, he just doesn't see those little things!!
i'd say a 3, he hates a messy house as much as me but my standards are a bit higher, too.
3 - he cleans quite a bit but there are some things he never does like the bathrooms.
A 1! If I make a list for him he will do the stuff on the list... but it's never really an awesome job, I mean.. emptying the dishwasher can't really be messed up... but everything else is kind of a half job. I put the job of cleaning the shower on him in January because it was already uncomfortable to clean the small stand up shower. I told him that was his job. He has NEVER ONCE just done it without being asked... and when he does do it it is not a good job at all. Our shower needs a really good scrubbing... it looks gross to me even right after he "cleans" it. I asked him to do the toilets once... omg... he cleaned the part under the seat that gets splattered and that's it.... sigh.... at least he does the list when I write it.. but I don't feel like I should have to make a list .... I don't think he has EVER vacuumed our new house.... he has swept a few times... and mop/steamed once. I work and I am pregnant... he is currently unemployed from being layed off..... shouldn't I just come home to a spotless house?!
I am sure all of your husbands don't ever see the little things they don't think of that have to be cleaned either.... like... the hood over the oven or everything that has to be dusted or the stupid baseboards...
Uh oh.. this started a rant!
Nope, my DH notices if they AREN'T clean though but never would think of cleaning them himself. I swear he thinks the cleaning fairy pops in and out of our house and takes care of those random things.
Probably a 12. He's amazing...benefit to shackin' up with an appliance geek He actually gets excited to do dishes & clothes 'cause he can remind himself how awesome his product is, lol! After years of pitching Bosch dishwashers & how great they are with baby stuff, he got to try it out today. Heehee, I asked him if he got a chubby from it.
