Monday QOTD

What is your least favorite housekeeping chore?

This house we rent is so huge and cold (loads of draft) that every morning you wake up and it's created a load of water all over the windows and frame. So every morning I go around wiping them all up to avoid mold....
I refuse to put money into someone else's house. LOL

Let's see......it used to be dishes, before the dishwasher. I guess vacuuming. It just gets old after a while.

ETA- let me take that back- I say mopping. I hate, hate, hate it. We are in need of some new flooring, so hopefully we will get that soon.

Putting away laundry

I can wash all day long but I absolutely hate folding, ironing, and putting it away.

I am a floor-hater. We have all old hardwood (and linolium in bathroom) floors and they are impossible to keep clean! Some of the boards have growing cracks in between them which makes sweeping a nightmare... so we usually vaccum the floors and just sweep the corners. And then the mopping... UGH! And yes, my house needs to be swept/mopped pretty badly right now. Just can't muster up the energy to get it done right now!

I'd say floors (sweeping, vaccuming, mopping)!

I hate vacuuming with a passion. Lucky for me DH is nice and does it 99% of the time. For some reason I really like doing the dishes, to the point that I don't use my dishwasher. I'm weird but oh well.

I guess dishes. I hate scrubbing/mopping our kitchen floor (it is impossible to keep clean...it is off white, we have a dog who tracks in dirt), but since I don't do that as often as dishes...dishes annoy me more.

Just one?

I hate housecleaning in general, but if I had to pick just one, I'd go with the bathroom floor. Our bathroom is in desperate need of some maintenance (the walls are crumbling and the toilet leaks) so between purple spots on the floor that I'm never sure are clean or not and the crumbling walls, a potty training toddler, two teenage boys (who never think to aim) and a husband who seems to think the bathroom is womans work, it's disgusting.

Scrubbing. Partially the extra work to drag everything out and then back in again, partially because we never seem to have a decent mop and hubby harps whenever I want a new one, partially because I have byrrsitis in one knee and tendonitis in one wrist so getting down on all fours irritates both (and I'd rather save that hurt for being on the floor with the kids), and cleaning fluids irritate my asthma but if I'm going to scrub, I want it to be REALLY clean. So basically, I'm a perfectionistic asthmatic, ailed person and that's excuse enough not to scrub. LOL

Our house sounds a lot alike. We had old hardwood floors like that, and I finally laid carpet down. It was a pain. No matter how hard I scrubbed, it was never clean.

dishes! I told myself when we move I was only moving if there was a dishwasher but then I fell in love with this house so I still don't have one. I want to make the Charys card so bad right now but I have to do my dishes first Sad

I hated doing laundry, but DH has been doing that for about 4 years so I don't have to anymore.

I HATE HATE HATE dusting!! It stirs my asthma and makes me sneeze! I would rather clean toilets any day!

I'm not even sure I know how to dust:D

After that definetely comes the dishes, even with a dishwasher I don't like doing them. How sad is that? I would rather have the rest of my house clean and not worry about the kitchen at all, it just gets dirty again right away so what is the point. Good thing Dh always wants a clean kitchen so he generally takes care of that while I do everything else.

Dusting definitely ... I hate it so much that I don't do it. I have a cleaning lady that comes once a month and she dusts. (I haven't always had her, DH got a raise and that allowed me to have her once a month - but his salary just got cut about the amount of his raise, and I have to figure out if I can still keep her)

We generally only clean when people come over Wink We do the dishes and laundry but other than that the other stuff gets done as needed.

I HATE with a passion folding and putting away the laundry. DH does that part. I'll wash and dry stuff all day long but HATE folding it!

After that its putting away clean dishes.

I hate putting away clean dishes to. Don't mind loading it though. Infact I hate it when anyone else loads it.

Otherwise I hate cleaning in general, only doing the minimum required so we aren't living in a pig sty and walking around with dirty clothes.
