Good Housekeeping

The Friday 5 for this week...

  1. What housekeeping chore(s) do you hate doing the most?
  2. Are there any that you like or don't mind doing?
  3. Do you have a routine throughout the week or just clean as it's needed?
  4. Do you have any odd cleaning/housekeeping quirks or rules?
  5. What was the last thing you cleaned?

  1. What housekeeping chore(s) do you hate doing the most?
    Vacuuming. Followed by straightening up and "putting away" (reducing clutter). I also never much liked doing dishes... so I don't, much. That's what dishwashers are for.

  2. Are there any that you like or don't mind doing?
    I honestly don't mind cleaning the cat box; it's necessary and important. I don't really mind wiping down the kitchen counters. I can't say I like any housekeeping chores, however.

  3. Do you have a routine throughout the week or just clean as it's needed?
    As needed. We've found that we do best if we try to maintain on a continuing basis. We try to wipe down the kitchen counters after using them, get the dishes into the dish washer almost immediately, wash up any pans that can't go in the dish washer asap...

  4. Do you have any odd cleaning/housekeeping quirks or rules?
    Such as...? No, I don't think so. I had a flatmate in grad school who thought vacuuming should be done every Saturday morning (and she was up by 8 am). I didn't mind that nearly so much as the fact that she also thought we should trade off weeks. This was a flat with 3 adult occupants and no pets. It didn't need vacuuming. My comment was that since I owned the vacuum cleaner, she was welcome to use it any Saturday she liked (When I moved out, I sold her the vacuum :)

  5. What was the last thing you cleaned?

    That would be either the kitchen counters or the cat box...
