    Clean Before Vacation

    If I am leaving for a vacation or even just leaving for the day... I like to make sure that my house is spotless or at least mostly clean and tidy, so that when I come home, there isn't a huge mess to come home to. I hate a dirty house!

    Soomehow Have Become My Mother In This Regard

    I used to always wonder why my mother would always insist on having the house fully cleaned before we left, even to just run an errand in the shops.  Then you get your own place and realise that a lot of what your parents done does make sense (gasp!) I prefer to open my...

    UGH

    I hate coming home to a dirty house. I try and keep the place picked up so that it never gets that dirty. I don't go to bed with a nasty kitchen or things laying all over the place. I have this thing about everything being in its place. I think that makes me a little OCD.

    My Home

    I have worked hard to keep my home clean. It is not easy with 2 small boys. I try and clean the bathrooms 2 times a week and the kitchen is always clean, and I vaccum every other night. I HATE when I have a babysitter and I come home and my house looks like a tornado went...

    Keeping My House Up

    Rags to Riches to Regular

    When my wife and I were young and newly married, the house was so dirty that at times you could not see the floor. Her sister used to tease me that if I would have only asked before I married her she would have told me about her ''nasty" habits. It's a long-standing joke...

    Overwhelmed By Clutter

    My house has gotten into a pretty bad state of clutter. It's not particularly dirty, but it surely isn't clean.  I just don't have the gumption to do many chores any more.  The basics are done like the toilet being scrubbed and dishes washed, but that's about all I can muster...

    I Like My House Clean

    I regularly clean up at home, but I make the extra effort when I'm going on a trip and I'll be away for a few days or more.  I like coming home, opening the door and seeing a clean home.

    I don't expect "museum clean", but no cat poop would be great.

    When I lived on my own, my house was always clean.  I took pride in taking care of the home I lived in and the things I owned. Now that I live with my husband and his extended family, I am going insane from the dirt.  I can handle the mess (mess=items that cannot...
