Dirty floors(needing swept/mopped) dirty toilets, dust everywhere, crap (dirty handprints and smudges) on the walls or cabinets, dishes everywhere.

Eh, I have a much different standard for others than I do myself. If I walk into someone's house and the floor obviously hasn't been vacuumed in a while, there are dishes and stuff everywhere, clothes thrown about, food left out...I'm going to assume someone has been sick and unable to clean up, lol.

For me, I get anxious if I leave clothes in the dryer, lol

Dirty dishes, nasty kitchen floor, invaccumed carpet, I have a five month old and 3 teenagers and I keep my house clean, my teenagers clean their bedrooms and vaccume their rooms daily, my 5 month old plays with toys but i pick up after him all the time, I don't like toys scattered all over the place!!!

toys everywhere, clothes not in drawers or hampers, beds unmade, floors that look or feel dirty ( i sweep and mop every day)

dishes in sink or on countertop, or anywhere other than on a table in front of you as you eat or put away nicely where they belong, in a cupboard.
dirty looking appliances, fingerprints on fridges, stove microwave, anything with dried on food on it, kitchen tables with anything other than a vase of flowers or centerpeice on them, unless being used for dining, cup of coffee at laptop whatever. bathrooms that have grungy toilets, there should NEVER be more than a days worth of dust on toilet or vanity, and it grosses me out when people do not clean the part near the floor.

oh i could go on and on ....

 Dust, too many dirty sinks, trash on the floor, trash overflowing, old food out, if the toilet looks dirty then yikes I can't be in your house, lol

I think it's smell more than looks. If you can smell dishes, greasy dog, bathroom smells, and trash cans then the house is dirty. I know if I come in to a house it can be organized with everything vacuumed and dusted but if there's a funky smell it feels dirty to me. On the flip side, a house that smells fresh and clean but has toys all over the floor doesn't really bother me.

Dirt filth stink. I hate walking into dust and funk when I walk into someones house. I feel like you should have pride in yourself and your belongings.
