I Like to Clean My House Listening to Music

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,617 People

    I almost always clean my house to music,

    played loud with a good beat. In all honesty I probably spend at least a third of my cleaning time dancing around singing. Not opposed to using a broom handle as an impromptu microphone either. :)

    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.

    Sometimes you are just picking up

    and have some pleasant music to provide some company. But once in a while, your in the mood, feeling good like your really gonna get something done. You crank that $h! up and rock out. To really clean while head banging and playing air guitar, those are the awesome days.

    However I spend 90% of the time dancing

    and trying to sing along to the music then cleaning the house. It does get done. Just after a few cd changes.

    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...

    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!

    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.

    Let's Clarify

    I don't LIKE to clean my house, but at least my ipod makes it bearable.  Now if I could just get off EP and get to work....

    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.

    I would much rather my house clean it's self

    so I can lie in bed and listen to music. If i must clean though, better be music.

    I HATE to clean my house

    and find that I will do anything to avoid it. I keep it picked up every day, but go through a complete cleaning every Friday. To help my focus I play my iPod over the house speakers and blast my way through dusting, vacuuming, mopping floors, shiny kitchen and bathrooms. Music...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    Doing it right now - Spotify is solely to blame

    for the amount of cleaner fluid getting splashed about ;)

    It serves as my motivator.

    Because you know, it actually DOES make cleaning seem to be more enjoyable when you're blasting music while you're doing chores

    I have a small apartment in Paris,

    in the Vingtième, as I've mentioned already. It's just off a main thoroughfare but it's more compact than small, cosy. It doesn't take long to vacuum clean it! I listen to a mixture of music when doing my household chores, on a Sunday, and naked.
