Alright so let’s get it out, there are tons of things we all hate cleaning. I can name you a bunch of them off my personal list, but I don’t want to decide the general list for all, so I reached out to my social network to see what they had to say about this topic. Let’s have some fun!
1- The Crapper A.K.A The Toilet
Alright so personally the toilet is not one of my favourites, and according to my survey, others hate it too. So just the word toilet sucks and makes you think of shit, but it’s true. Not that it’s long to clean, but I believe that we seriously lack the motivation to get the job done. It’s awkward, and you feel gross cleaning it.
2- The Oven
Okay so this came up a few times as well, and I tend to agree, however, I am specifically speaking about the inside of the oven, which quite frankly I don’t clean much (oh shit..shhh). The top is pretty easy unless your oven is from the 90’s and you’ve got to take apart the stove top, that sucks. Does cleaning the inside mean changing the foil? Tips are appreciated here!
I cleaned it once and for all and put it in the cupboard lol, decided I didn’t want to deal with a microwave anymore. Although great tricks exist like the classic bowl of vinegar to get leftover sauces out and whatever else always explode in there. Who else would like to join me on this microwave boycotting? When I crave popcorn, I pull it out, use it, and put away again. Don’t judge me, join me. #FUMicrowaves
I nominate dusting because it’s so long, you have to remove all your picture frames and other such items, then dust, followed by putting everything back. Why do you exist dust, why? And with two dogs, it’s even worst. So in this case, don’t put any decorations or picture frames on any flat surfaces, hang all your picture frames, sell your dogs on Kijiji (I’m kidding, I would never) and live in a plastic bubble. Some things simply can’t happen.
5- Cleaning Cupboards
A friend of mine recently did his, and it made me realize how shitty this chore is. I looked at my cupboards a while back and knew that one day I would have to, but I’m just not ready yet. Although this is long too, and you need to book yourself a full day to do it all, I feel like it’s one of those things that you get so into it that you end up cleaning things in so much depth and BAM there goes your weekend…See you one-day cupboards. AHHH just thinking about it, the classic Tupperware cupboard.
This is just annoying. It’s awkward and is almost an acrobatic workout. Again, remove all the shampoos, soaps, razors, etc. Spray the heck out of it and then get on your knees to scrub everywhere. Sounds like fun but it’s not. It’s the thing we tell ourselves we should clean weekly but end up doing it once a month…No judgement here folks. Please feel free to share your bath/shower cleaning tips with us.
This was brought up and I wasn’t sure if I’d include it, but then I realized how much of a shit chore this is too. Especially with dogs in the house, they have turned me into an expert vacuum user. I don’t hate this that much except what I hate most about vacuuming is the actual vacuum. Suction is never as good as you think it to be. But then you’re going to tell me to buy a more expensive vacuum cleaner.
Windows is a full process as in making sure you aren’t doing anything else this weekend because you’re cleaning windows! Luckily this can get done like 1-2 times a year, thank god. So much Windex and paper towel and then the patio door are just always dirty because of the dogs. They don’t care that you just cleaned it…Don’t forget that you have to do the inside and the outside. Ladders & heights oh my! I don’t get freaked out by heights, but I would rather have died living a happy life rather than ”died cleaning her windows”. Be safe, practice safe window cleaning. Get a harness or something lol, don’t be stupid.
9- The Fridge
Fridge cleaning is unpleasant because who knows what you will find in there. There’s always something past date that somehow got left behind. There’s like blood stains from thawed meat, something sticky and fucking onion peels. Yea, I put my onions in the fridge, let me be. Broccoli crumbs, sauce residue, floppy celery stick, five different mustard containers, three ketchup containers, pickles, olives, more mustard, etc. It’s exhausting just thinking about it. It’s something you just got to do, no buts.
10- That Drawer Everyone Has
This is typical, and I have seen a lot, don’t lie about it we all have that drawer. Not sure what I’m talking about? drawer
Is it clearer now? Yeah, that’s what I thought. Don’t be ashamed. Just let this be. A drawer like this is part of life, don’t think of it as a mess, think about it as a time capsule. Every few years you’re like ”okay I’m going to clean it now”, and then you find all this memorabilia and useless items that make you question why you have continued to keep them. So keep your lives exciting, let the drawer stay I say!
