  • HUH?

    I'm not sure I understand the question.

    The people you live with want the house as clean as a hospital?

    Then have them move down to County General!

  • buy pupppy pads for your puppy first of all it will help train him. now to get rid of the puppy odor so he or she will stop marking there spot use baking soda vacume it up and then pour a tad bit of rubbing alcohole on it let dry it gets rid of the pee smell.As far as cleaning your house to hospital standards forget it no one has a house like that lol and if they do they have far to much time on there hands. just vacume every other day or so keep up on the dishes and mop your floors and clean the bathroom. who said you have to be perfect.

  • um, well, hospital's aren't really as clean as you think then...which is why i refuse to let my kids play on the floor in the ER room...the only place that's really clean is in an operating room, and sometimes those aren't even as clean as they're supposed to be.

  • Id tell them if they like the way the hospital keeps their rooms they should go get hit by a car and check in.

  • First off, hospitals are filthy. You'd be wise to spend as little time as possible there. Second, if other people who live in your home are complaining, then start "training" them to pick up after themselves. If they absolutely refuse to do so, then every time someone gets on your about the state of the house, smile and point out all the messes that person made. If the people hassling you don't live with you, tell them to stick it in their ear.

  • So long as your house isn't disgusting, you are doing just fine. I think you should clean up after yourself and your children if they are not old enough to do it themselves. Teach your children to clean up after themselves and enforce it. The other adults in the house can take care of their own messes. And hospitals are not clean at all. The look clean to the naked eye.

  • First thought....Wow...I'd say think about changing your people.
    Second thought....Is this your home with your family? I'm not quite sure I understand your living situation. That may help me answer the question better.

  • I'm glad your friends and family aren't mine. I'd have to hit them. lol.... or stop letting them in my house.
