I Love a Clean House

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,602 People

    I'm very OCD especially about my home.

    When my children were growing up they would purposely put a piece of lint on the floor or move something out of place to see how long it would take me to pick it up. It's a sickness I tell you.

    It Calms Me

    Having a clean house is like therapy for me. I love to clean and there's nothing like finishing and enjoying the look and smell of my clean home. I don't have OCD although my kids and bf have said I do because there have been times where I wouldn't go to sleep until everything...

    I Can't Stand It!

    When I walk into someones house and it's completely dirty. I work a full time job and I make sure my house is clutter and clean free. I wipe down my baseboards at least twice weekly, make sure my girls' rooms are clean, make sure everything is in place and organized. I don't...

    Yes I Do.

    Of course, I love a clean house.  Now for the part I don't love.... cleaning it.  If I'm in a cleaning mood, then that's great, but for the most part when I get home from work, I'm so wiped out that I dont' care to clean.  Sometimes I pay someone to clean for me...

    I'm a total clean freak,

    my room always looks pristine and shiny, I spend time on it too, my parents tend to hire people to clean the house, but my room is mine to clean, things need to be in place, exactly in place, the right angle and exact place. All my statues, paintings, even books get extremely...

    Full disclosure. I need to take down the

    drapes in the computer room and wash them. Every time I open them up to let the light in, the light catches the mist of dust they throw off. Yuck.

    Sunday Is Coming!

    Sunday, from the moment my feet hit the floor until I put them up for the night, I'm cleaning my house.   I wish I had time to do more, but I've got myself limited to only Sundays anymore.  When I was a kid growing up, my mom used to keep the house so clean...

    Not Insanely Clean

    I like a clean house but not sterile clean.Not the kind of clean where you feel like you can't breath or touch anything without dirtying up.I've been in houses like that before.Those of the kind of houses where it's against the "rules" to curl up on the couch,where the...

    But Its Not Enough Anymore

    We had the four common rooms in the house painted lovely new colors recently.  So that meant all the furniture was moved around and I could dust where I seldom reach, underneath and behind.  The windows and drapes were all cleaned.  The...

    It really makes me feel better to have a clean

    house. Too often, when I'm really upset, I just start picking things up. This leads to cleaning things up, organizing, dusting, etc. Washing things that didn't bother me the hour before suddenly become horribly disgusting and I cannot do anything until it's all clean. The house...

    Spick And Span

    I'm never happier than when my house is clean and tidy. I feel chaotic and disorganised when things are messy. Some people see housework as a chore, but I find cleaning therapeutic and get a big sense of satisfaction from it. There is nothing I love more than getting everywhere...

    I like to have a clean house.

    When it's clean you have things organized and know where to find it. If some clothing isn't where it should be it is dirty. Clean dishes are put away. You don't have a sink full of dirty dishes. A table is clean. Leftovers are not left out. Garbage is thrown away. Carpet is...

    Ahhh It Feels So Nice

    It feels so nice to clean the house today. I love when our home feels cozy and warm. It's a lovely rainy day with the scent of candles and a bit of John Mayer. Little miss is taking a late nap, totally tired out from a morning of preschool and a hot coco tea party. Let's see how...

    People Ask Me Why Would I Waste A Satuday Morning On Chore

    And the short answer for this post is that I clean better than anybody else I know. I'm a painter by trade, and well, painters know how to clean. Also, (and this goes back to my days as a theater techie) I'm good at organizing and keeping that way. Stages have scenery, props, set...

    of course. Clean, neat, tidy, straight, and in order is how it has to be. I cant function otherwise. I walk around the house cleaning for fun.
