Is your MIL's house dirty?

Mine's house is full of crap. Cant stand going there. Food piled up on the table and on top of fridge etc. Thank God my husband is the complete opposite of her.

  • Love my MIL, but she works like 4 jobs, so cleaning is not in her schedule. her house is similar to OP's MIL, but without the food piled up. It isn't so much dirty, as cluttered. I don't fear for my son's health or anything when he goes over.

  • She is 50 and does not work! Far from disabled

  • Yep...They have so much stuff and most of it they cant get rid of it because its all stuff from all around the world and worth a lot of money. But they have never dusted their home. Its so gross. My husband hates it when we have to stay at their house when we visit. Every time we leave there me and him both feel like we are going to get sick. Although i love my in-laws to death. and they have a bunch of dogs like 5 in a double wide trailor and a cat.

  • My MIL is also a horrible housekeeper. It makes me crazy, but then again - she makes me crazy so I am probably just being petty!

  • No. My MIL was a neat clean house cleaning fanatic. LOL. My Mom too. None of us have messy homes. My kids are married and they all have clean houses too.
    Maybe your MIL is a hoarder? That is a person who never wants to throw things out.

  • clean like she dusts and vacuums and picks up the rooms, yes.....very very cluttered though!! she likes to collect stuff i think! still, i can't get over the feeling of wanting to clean up big time if i know she's coming here lol. it shouldn't bug me but it does.
