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.

Oh my! Hands-down dusting! I LOVE cleaning and everything else doesn't bother me...not even bathrooms, but I hate dusting!!! (my house is living proof)

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 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
