have the same definition of "clean"?

My husband and I do not. He's good with just picking up and things being halfway tidy. I want everything organized, deodorized,disinfected, sanitized, and any other "ize" that may apply...lol. His idea of clean drives me crazy.

I feel like sometimes we do, but others we don't. Sometimes I feel like he would be totally ok with living in piles of dirty clothes and toys while other times I feel like he is more on par with my idea of clean (closer to your idea of clean). 

It's really weird, actually lol.

Yes, but it takes me half the time. I can clean 3 rooms in the time it takes him to clean one. 

I hate it when he cleans because he gets such an attitude while he's doing it.

I do all the cleaning. I have OCD, actual diagnosis and it helps me to know I did it, it's done right, etc. My husband does his share with the yard and kids.

that was a huge issue, until we had guests, then he would run around and get compliments for being so helpful.

No. His shower has mold in it. I refuse to clean it one more time. It is disgusting. And his sink is full of whiskers.

I seriously won't even open his bathroom door.
