Is this the worst household job?

Two years ago I asked for a new stove for Christmas. Yes I know women are supposed to hate getting appliances as gifts. Obviously I don't agree with that and I love to cook. SO the stove is like a new toy for me. The old stove had burners that were the old coil type and the oven was not self cleaning. I got a glass top stove and it has a self cleaning oven!!! I think the very worst household cleaning job is to have to clean the oven. Spray that horrendous oven cleaner, wait for a while and you have brown foamy smelly goo that you have to wipe out. Next wash the stove two or three times to get the nasty smell out! SO what do you think, is cleaning the oven the worst household job? If not then what is and why?

I love to cook and hate to clean. Nothing worse than the old ovens. I remember scrubbing my mother's floors. I told her she was crazy, and to buy a mop!!!

hubby cooks and i clean but i dont have a regular mop and just got a swiffer wet jet.. well the floors in my kitchen are patterned vinyl with like texture so you have to really scrub at it some times and i end up just getting frustrated with the little scrubby thing on the swiffer.. i need to buy a refil but i got the laminate wood floors through out the rest of the house and since you cant use the wet jet stuff on them im afraid i will be air headed and start mopping and go to the next room with out thinking.. where as if i scrub them obviously i will know where im at lol.. but like i said its like textured/grooved so its a pain

Anything to do with the floors! Vaccum or moping hate it!!! Other then that I don't mind the other stuff. I don't like to do any of it but its all a necessary evil!

My ove needs cleaning, I keep meaning to call the company in to come and clean it but it costs pounds. I don't mind cleaning the toilet, at least it stays clean for a while after. I not that keen on cleaning the kitchen because as soon as you clean it, you either have to use it to make a cuppa tea, cook tea or somone else goes in there nad makes a mess. At least every other room in the house stays clean and tidy for at least an hour when you have cleaned. The kitchen never ever

I think it would still be cleaning the toilet bowl. Specially when it's clogged and the dirt doesn't want to get out despite all scrubbing. LOL! But, yes, I do understand how you feel about cleaning the stove --- thank God! I don't have to do it.

Changing the cat litter is the worst household job.

I don't have cats anymore so I don't have to deal with that one. I still think the oven is the worst though!

I have 5 cats, so it's still the worst job in my house, and it has to be done daily.
