  • I really hate cleaning with a passion. I dont know why probably because my mom was a clean freak and I never had to clean anything not even my room. However it must be done Im a middle of the road cleaner not completley spic and span but not filthy.

  • I dont wear gloves, but I do clean until things are spotless. I highly believe in preventing messes, as soon as the husband comes home I make him take off his boots, and then he has to change and put his dirty clothes straight in the hamper. If my son makes a mess, I clean it up immediately. Living in a dirty house causes stress to the people living there, and I dont need that.

  • Oh gee- I'm a pretty messy person.
    I have a lab puppy that likes to tear apart stuffed animals... and I often wait till I really really have to to pick up that mess. My husband and I are also notorious for leaving pop bottles around... and you will often find us scrambling around on garbage day to pick at least half of them.
    I also hate dishes... so I use paper plates for everything I can :) and I don't often do my dishes the night I use them... Usually its the next night :/

  • I am a "clean when it gets so bad that it makes me want to throw up/pull my hair out" kinda person. LOL. DH didn't marry me for my housekeeping skills, that's for sure!!

  • Im the bleach bi---! But I make sure the kids are out the house. It seems like the house smell better and everything is so sparkly when you use bleach.

  • When I do serious cleaning, I wear gloves and eye protection because I have chemical sensitivity issues, but I use bleach, make damn sure the job gets done and done well because I don't enjoy the activity and the better of a job you do, the easier it is to maintain.

  • I don't use gloves to check for dust. I do keep my home spotless. I was up at 6 am made my husband, son and myself a huge breakfast. They left for school and work and I cleaned up the kitchen. In the last 1 1/2 hours I have cleaned all my baseboards and crown moldings, cleaned all my windows inside and out, cleaned my kitchen and bathroom cabinets inside and out. I have also cleaned all my light fixtures. I put my IPod on with some fun music and in no time I have a ton of stuff done. I am taking a quick break and then will clean for 30 more minutes I need to clean all the doors in the house and throw the laundry in the washer into the dryer and then fold it later. I will then workout for 2 hours. After my shower I will have lunch and 3 hours to sit on my butt until my son gets home from school. I like a clean house so I spend two hours everyday detail cleaning everyday. My house stays spotless this way.

  • I'm a "lick and a promise" kind of cleaner...
    I make sure the bathrooms are disinfected, floors are clean, house is dusted once a week, otherwise we just keep things picked up...
    I do 1 load of laundry a day so its easy to keep up with... With 3 kids I have to...

  • I make it look nice but I dont do every nook and cranny.

    Like I freely admit to hating baseboards and ignoring them LOL.
