  • If they need help, I would ask. If they have bad eyesight and they are aware of needing help, for instance. I would not offer if they are ok.

  • For some reason I think you might be looking for a different word...offended just doesn't seem to fit.

  • I think to not offend, I'd offer as a gift on a special occasion....birthday, anniversary, Christmas.....that sort of thing. Then they won't see it as criticism, but rather a gift. They may love it so much, that you could then talk to them about helping out whenever.

    I don't mean me offended I mean my SIL or inlaws.

  • Nah..... I wouldn't think it offensive if my SIL came out of the bathroom and went straight back in.....with a mop.... more power to em. I'd probably follow her to see what she was doing.... and probably make some comment like "driving you nuts too eh?" But I'm like that.... I'll clean a counter at my friends house "cuz it's driving me nuts" and my friends are the same way with me..... but then we're a very accepting bunch... like literally the village raises the children type, ya know.

  • this would make more sense. someone that wants a clean house but probably isnt capable of doing it that well. they might like the help. as for the SIL it seems like a little dirt doesnt bother her much, if you say something it might not make a difference besides causing tension
