    Using My Broom As a Guitar....

    Nah not really but it sure sounded funny...I can't seem to get much done around the house unless I got some tunes in the background or my headphones in.  If I don't have a radio then you'll probably hear me at least singing while I'm scrubbing and sweeping.  I don't see...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    Quick ,quick, Gone!!!

    It usually keeps me off the fact that I'm cleaning up, what it also does for me is drown out the noise of a vacuum cleaner. I hate the way vacuum cleaners sound, it's sooo annoying! I also feel that it actually helps me finish cleaning a lot quicker.

    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 How I Learned to Clean House

    my Momma would always put some music on and crank it up where we would be more inclined to actually get the job done and when she noticed that we had started slacking a little she'd tell us to stop what we were doing and take a break...she'd put on Ike and Tina's "Proud Mary...

    It Makes Work Easier

    I don't feel tired or lazy when doing chores while listening to music especially dance music where I sometimes dance to it lol. It makes me enjoy the chores even though it's not an enjoyable thing to do hehe. People should do it too lol.

    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 !

    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...

    Motivation

    I normally wouldn't like to clean house but with music I love to clean. I have a bit of OCD so I hate clutter and hate it when things are out of it's place. I'm a great organizer and won't leave dirty dishes anywhere but the sink and they'll get done that night before I go to bed...

    Hubby & I Both Do

    Hubby cleans house a ton more than I do, but when I do clean, I love having the iTunes going a top volume!  I love listening to music for so many things, but it really gets me through the cleaning better than anything!

    As A Kid And Teen I Used To Clean The House While Listening To Video Music Shows

    When I have to clean the house, I must put music on! It helps to make the job more fun and the time to pass by quicker. My thing to do is to pull up my music playlist on my mother's computer downstairs, of my favorite Frank Sinatra hits, and clean to the lyrics of Frankie. I...

    Hate Speech Radio

    Yep, Or It Won't Get Done!

    Music is the only thing that will get me started cleaning when i need to. If i don't have any music to blast, the work probably won't get done! I guess it sorta takes your mind off the work you do when you're singing and dancing at the same time!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
