A family that cleans together gets a clean house faster! Today's challenge is to clean the house as a family.

The adults can take care of the tougher things and the kids can help out with things like the dishes, sorting laundry, and picking up their rooms.  Cleaning as a family is a great way to work together and it has the added benefit of splitting up the household duties so one person isn't doing most of the work!

Who does most of the cleaning and laundry in your home? Do your kids have chores?

My kids are grown but the did have chores.  They traded days on which certain things were done.  Frome the bathroom to the kitchen  to the yard.  When they were older they were responsible for their clothing as well.

I typically do the indoor cleaning and the hubby does the outdoor stuff-mowing the lawn, etc.  but he does his own  laundry, I do mine and our son's.  He also does the dishes (not well, but he does them). So I guess we split the chores pretty equally.  Our 24 mo. old will pick up his books and toys and plays with his kiddie vacuum.  When it comes to serious cleaning-that is all me! the hubby tends to rush through things and doesn't do as thorough a job as I'd like.

 I do most of it. The kids do help, well one does. Getting the other one to do anything is like pulling teeth!

I do most of the cleaning and my oldest helps me.  She has no specific chores because she helps me clean whatever room I'm currently cleaning.

I do all the laundry and most of the cleaning. My husband helps occasionally. The kids clean their rooms, pick up toys in the living room, and help sweep

I do most -- DH takes care of lawn, garden, cars (and used to shovel snow & care for the dog we had).  He pitches in with shower stall cleaning.  DD was my go-to person for filing and also folding clothes.  She's away at college now.

DH does a little laundry but I prefer that he doesn't.  LOL!
