RE: House cleaning
I'm medium messy. It's just me so not many dishes. I pop them in the dish washer and then run it twice a week. I'm not much on clutter so the kitchen and living room is reasonable if someone shows up unannounced. I never make my bed unless company is coming over. I don't care if it's made and actually it's more healthy not to make it. (Mites [every bed in the world has thousands of them, so does your body] die from dehydration when the bed is left open and unmade so it keeps the population down and less allergic issues.) I scrub the bathroom weekly as well as sweep and mop the rest of the house.

All in all it takes me about an hour to clean my house on Saturday. If I'm having a party and do a real scrub down maybe 2 hours. I do a "spring cleaning" 4 times a year and that takes a day but that also includes closet cleaning, reorganizing and getting rid of stuff I don't need.

My biggest issue is leaving the dried clothes in the dryer until later. I'm a tumble-it before you wear it person, a lot of times. Sad

I try to look at it as an on-going demonstration of the principle of increasing entropy.

RE: House cleaning
My problem is that I'm a thrower-away-of-things and my husband is a pack rat. We get along very well except for this. He has archery magazines from 15 years ago that he says he's going to read when he retires. Well, he THINKS he has those magazines. I threw them away several years ago and he's never noticed. Hardy-har-har-har. Laugh out load

So my house cleaning always runs into a wall of husband clutter. Sign.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

When I would announce that "spring cleaning" was happening, my family would scatter like roaches when the lights came on, to hide their stuff. lol

I always had a garage sale after spring cleaning and the rule was "unless it's a tool, a kitchen item or an heirloom" and you haven't used or played with it in a year it went to the sale. Let the moaning & bargaining begin! Big Grin

RE: House cleaning
I'm hardly the Stepford wife I used to be. Our house was overrun with dust and crap. It's humiliating.

Lately, I've been getting my Stepford wife groove back. My family completely appreciates it.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

RE: House cleaning
In my current state I find cleaning quite hard. I do clean every cup and plate I use the moment I am finished with it. I try to keep the place safe so I can move about. For example my headphone wires are gaffa taped to the floor.

I have a carer who comes for 1 hour per week who cleans the bathroom, mops the floor etc. This week I need a vacuum as well. (It all depends on the competency of the cleaner)

I have an afternoon appointment at the hospital today so will take advantage to wash my dirty clothes. This is scary because there is a dangerous old flight of stairs. Nevertheless it must be done.

However I am careful, things end up on the floor. I can see a postal satchel, a pair of socks and three drumming books on my floor at present. Smile Oh and a hat! Must move the hat.

RE: House cleaning
If I could afford someone to come in and clean I would be compelled to clean up before they got here. So, it seems kind of useless to me for regular cleaning.

However, with 24 foot ceilings, lights, windows, and ceiling fans that I can't even reach with our ladder- I wouldn't mind having someone come in to do that about once a year. My husband rigged up the world's longest extension tool for the vacuum cleaner but it's a two person job and a chore that takes a couple days.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF
