Mine is either dishes or laundry. i don't mind sweeping & mopping but those 2 chores i'd rather not do. i'm the only one who will do them in my house tho so if i didn't do it then they wouldn't get done. what about you?

Not so much doing laundry, but folding the clothes. I never do it quite right. I also don't like cleaning the bathroom. It seems to get messed up again very quickly.

Hello halynn! I keep on thinking what is my favorite house chore because if only I have a choice, I hate doing house chores. But well maybe I will choose cleaning my room. I want to clean my room than let others clean it because my things have usual places where I can easily find it.

By the way, I forgot to tell you that my least favorite housechore is washing the dishes. I just think it's too complicated and very hard and I hate getting wet.

My least favorite chore is to fold and put cloth away. I live in a house with four girls including me and at tiems it gets confusing to whom the cloth belongs to. So i have to go around the house asking "is this yours". But my favorite chore is washing dishes. I don't know why but when I'm washing dishes I get relaxed.

Housework is generally speaking ok for me, except cleaning the windows. We have several rooms, and the windows have double glasses. On the 21st floor, it is always a challenge for me. I used to stand on the chair to clean the glasses, but now I am using some sort of tool with a long handle to reach the upper parts. I find one tool quite efficient. It consists of two magnetic parts with soft plastic cloth attached. The two parts are placed on both sides of the glass, so that I need only to move the one inside to drive that outside. Of course, care must be taken, not to drop it down, though a string is linking the two parts.

My least favorite chore to do is dishes, I hate washing dishes, if I don't have to do it I won't...lol. I don't mind sweeping or mopping either, I don't even mind the laundry, but those dishes, sometimes I wished I had a dishwasher, but even then, I'd probably still hate having to load it and unload it..haha.

My least favorite chore would have to be folding clothes and putting them away. That and hand washing dishes. I dont mind putting clothes into the washer or dryer, but taking them out and folding them and all that isnt my kinda thing. I dont mind dishes when the dish washer isnt full. I just dont like having to handwash any.

Scrubbing oily pots, pans and plates or ironing! If I have to choose between the two, ironing! I hate ironing with a passion - it's hot, tedious and simply detestable. I would postpone ironing as much as possible.

I don't mind washing the dishes, but I hate putting them away. I don't mind washing and folding the laundry but I hate putting it away. Maybe it has to do with the fact that I like starting things but hate having to finish them?

Cleaning the toilet is the worst for me but unfortunitly it has to be done. Since we've moved into our new place I structured my time with cleaning better. I made a chore list of things that have to be done everyday. Mondays I clean the kitchen, sweep the floor and wipe down all surfaces then wash the floor Tuesdays I do all the dusting in my house Wednesdays I vacuum downstairs and clean the downstairs bathroom Thurdays I vacuum the stairs and upstairs, clean the upstairs bathroom Fridays I clean the laundry room sweep and wash the floor in there plus do the laundry as well. Sorry since I was on this topic I thought I would mention this as it has helped me forget about not liking the chores around the house Have a great night and happy mylotting

cooking - a photo of A steaming pot on a stove top
Hi my friend I hate all household chores but if I had to choose, I would say cooking, if you can consider that a household chore. I absolutely, positively hate to cook! I don't mind heating up something or microwaving a frozen dinner, but as far as cooking a meatloaf or anything in the oven or on top of the stove, I hate it! Happy MyLotting! Char

hi halynn, my dear friend, i love to do the work of my house on my own but i feel pretty bore doing dish washing and that too big ones or too greasy ones. i feel they are very difficult to do and i am very uncomfortable in doing them . i donno about the others. i dont have a dish washer but u have a maid but then too i cant give the whole lot of utensils to her. i have to clean some , otherwise they are so many that on the very other day she will say bye bye to me. i dont even like dusting much. i really hate that thing. it is such a bore and i am very allergic to dust . so i am very uncomfortable with it. when ever i do, i civer my face thoroughly but then too, i face nose infection and throat infection. i cant cope up with dust and dusty things. if i pick something that is too dusty then too i will face problem. so these two things are the worst things in my daily chores that i have to do but i dont wanna. dusting is a thing that i skip a;lso some day. i dont even do it every day, it is such a bore and i am not even having such a big friend or relative circle who keep on visiting me.

i hate to fold clothes which i have washed . this was the least favourite for me. i will wash clothes within 2 days in washing machine and i will hang to stand and leave it for next time. i hate cleaning dishes also. but i have to clean daily once ,it is compulsory for me to clean daily ,if any day i will not clean, next day my kitchen will be messy and i hate to enter in kitchen also.so i clean daily in morning after i cook food. and in evening before i sleep.

I can not say there is an entire chore I dont care for Im use to them all but what i HATE doing with a passion is matching socks and washing silverware. I would rather scrub pots and pans then wash silverware. I do it but I cant stand it.
