    The Only Way

    This is actually the only way I can clean my house.  I'm so happy Steve Jobs came up with the iPod, because now, I can bop around while cleaning and listen to whatever I like, and that's a kind of freedom I don't wish to lose... If I don't listen to music, I don't clean...

    I Really Enjoy Cleaning My House To Music!

    I always start by putting a comfortable sundress and low heels on and putting my make-up on- feeling pretty just puts me in a better mood! We have speakers all over the house so my IPod can work every place I need to clean. I have a diverse taste in music so it might be anything...

    Totally Ocd

    I have to clean my house whenever it gets messy or even if it is not. I have a pet peeve if it is not done my way. I have to organize things. I mostly think its OCD.

    Without music, I don't move.

    Put some music on and things get cleaned and polished. My brother is the same way.

    No easier way to past the time cleaning the

    jamming out while vacuuming or rocking out an imaginary arena while doing the dishes! Spoons make great microphones!

    I do this every time I start cleaning!

    If I'm asked to quickly out away the dishes I then quickly grab my iPod and turn up da music. Then once I'm done I go back to doing what ever I was before.

    Hate Speech Radio

    This isn't 100% accurate for me. I like to clean while listening to my ipod. I prefer to listen to podcasts that aren't music focused. Hate Speech Radio is one of my favorites to listen to while cleaning. It's about 4 hours of interesting and funny stuff but isn't usually for...

    Whenever I clean my room (which is a lot) I

    always have my music playing, same with upstairs if I have to sweep, then I bring up a portable Bluetooth speaker and listen upstairs.

    It Helps

    I think it works best for me when I put on fasterpaced music, so I'll clean to the beat and get things done quicker. Music also makes drull tasks seem less boring, sure you're cleaning, but you're listening to music.

    I find it pretty necessary to listen to music

    while I clean up after people I don't respect, free of charge and free of thanks.

    Blasting Loud.

    I can only clean the house when my mom isn't home so I can turn my music all the way up. I can't clean without music, I feel unmotivated and often do a terrible job without it.

    Don't Do It Without It

    I can not and will not clean without music playing.  Just can't get motivated to do clean without it.  It is much better and I am more productive with a beat to move too.  Besides, it is hard enough getting into the mood to clean so I gotta make it fun when I do...

    I Cleaned All Day

    I cleaned all day today and did laundry I had for over 3 weeks. YIKES!! I hate laundry but I clean all the time.   There is nothing like the feeling of everything clean, fresh and put away!

    It's kind of the only way I can wash the dishes.

    I have to put on some Dan Croll or Alt-J and just let my body take over while I get these monotonous tasks done.

    Music And Motivation

    Fast beat music? Check!Headphones so I don't drive out the neighbors? Check!Clean house? Let me hit 'play'...Anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes later, dishes are done, vacuuming and dusting is done, trash taken out, and I'm wondering where the next project is. Gotta love it!

    Yep...

    Yes, I can also do houseworks. As my wife has a fragile back, I do all strong houseworks. No problem for me. A nice way to help her in a real way.... You can laugh, good people. My wife is pretty satisfied and her back is preserved ! Nah, nah, nah !
