  • So your MOM never taught you how to clean. Most cleaning is common sense.

  • If you answer yes to any of these questions--my mom can answer yes to all of them--you might be obsessed with cleaning.

    Do you clean all of the bathrooms in your house every single day, whether or not anybody has set foot in them?

    Do you vacuum the high traffic areas in your house twice a day, even if you have no pets and your kids are grown and out of the home?

    Do you have an ongoing open account with a carpet cleaning company, so that when a daughter once needed her apartment done in an emergency, all she had to do was call and give them your name and have the service billed to your credit card?

    Is the first place your carpet gets worn out the spot in front of the closet where you drag out the vacuum?

    Do you pitch an epic hissy fit at the top of your lungs if your kids leave fingerprints on the glass window near the knob when opening the door?

    You're probably not obsessed. My mother is the gold standard.

  • cleaning is NOT common sense. sometimes it's a matter of having the correct products and determining whether or not you want to go with natural products or harsh chemicals

  • LOL, sorry you just tend to ask a lot of cleaning questions. And, I've actually known people like that. One of my ex boyfriends in college was like that, every time he came over he cleaned my apt.

  •  Well darling you sure spend  A LOT of time doing it!  Seems like you're more "obsessed" with "doing something" or you possibly have the "can't sit still" ants in your pants syndrome! lol :p

  • You mostly only talk about your weight and cleaning so maybe that's why people think that

  • LOL I don't even know my weight! Wish it was less though. I don't have a lot going on over here. Just sit in my house all day with my kids wondering how to clean things!

    Ballad my answer is no to all of those! LOL
