    New Year's Cleaning

    A couple of days ago, I gave my stove the most thorough cleaning I've ever given it, or any other stove. Glen, one of the people I interviewed for Cleaning: People Talk About Housework, confessed, "It's sort of mysterious to me how somebody can make the top of a stove clean. I...

    Bagless Vacuum Cleaners

    Ok, let me begin by saying I don't hate cleaning - I mean, I understand the value of having a clean home.  I don't live in a pigpen, in fact I hate clutter (not that I don't clutter a bit myself - clutter happens) - I am not anal about it, but I don't like messes...

    I Hate Cleaning But I Like A Clean House

    After Others

    I do not mind cleaning up the house & having it stay that way but when others dirty up the house, I hate having to be the one who cleans up. Especially since everyone is at a decent age to clean up after themselves.

    Cleaning As Punishment

    Growing up the amount of cleaning we had to do depended on the moods of my mom. If she was in a good mood, we just had normal cleaning. If she was fighting with my dad or on some sort of rampage the cleaning was insane. There was screaming and yelling, hitting and slapping. I...

    I do not like cleaning. Some things are much worse than others. I will do windows, clean up the kitchen, sweep, mop, vacuum, ect. But bathtubs are the absolute worst thing ever. You have to lean in at a weird angle and scrub really hard. What could be worse? I wonder if that...

    When I Lived At Home
