Hello friends, Today i just hoover the house and mop the floor and windows. Normally, i clean my house at least twice a week. It's easily to get dusty as my house is just nearby the main road. Besides, i am facing postpartum hairloss at the moment, so you can imagine how often i have to clean my house. What about you?? Is your house getting dusty easily? Soes anyone help you to do these housechores sometimes? Happy mylotting and have a nice day!

Seems that I do some housework daily. I at least keep my bathroom clean and the dishes caught up. Then I randomly go thru and dust, clean the oven, floors and windows as needed. It is just me and my daughter here and she is pretty good about picking up things also.

I'm a fanatic about my bathroom floor. I think it is because I used to work as a nanny, and the lady's bathroom floor was always filthy! I cleaned it one day, but she got very angry. She said my job was to be a nanny, not a house cleaner. I just wanted to help. I didn't think it was healthy for the kids, because one of them had just started crawling.

hi lulu, I think i am one of those who doesnt like cleaning even at home, i let other do it for me. I am just lucky to have someone clean my house, and let them do it. but there are also times that i need to do it on my own when they are not around. i am glad that there are many appliances around to help me to clean the house quickly and with ease.

Hi, margarit. You are really lucky to have someone else to help you out in the house. I hope i am so lucky too, but seems not! Are they your family? However, sometimes my husband will help me to do some chores and i appreciate that because i do not need to be so tired afterwards and sweaty! Have a nice day and happy mylotting.

We clean our house everyday to maintain it's cleanliness because we have two dogs lying around. My grand mom and our housemaid does the chores most of time. My task is to clean my room.Ü

It's great to have a housemaid. I hope i would have one too, but it cost money. When i used to live alone in the dorm before, i only cleaned my room. It's easy job. Not much things to clean like now.

i sweep the floor everyday, but only in my room, and then clean the dust whenever I see the needs to. Luckily at my current place, there are not so many dust, but there are so many small insects around, it kind annoying at first, but now I get used to. I live enar with jungle, and in front of my room is a football field, so imagine how many insects around, especially during night

oh..i really cannot imagine that i have to live together with so many insects in a house. You are brave. I always get frightened if there are some insects like bugs in the house, especially the flying one. Will you kill them or you just let them be? Have a nice day!

First of all yes my house gets dusty very easily and that is because I live in New Mexico which is dry and alot of sand. I usually do a complete cleaning once a week and tidy up each day of the week. So that one day of cleaning is not overbearing. However I must say I do love to clean and I'm known as being OCD when it comes to keeping the house in order. LOL LOL LOL

Hi, candy. I am the same as you. When i am hardworking and energetic, yes, i do clean my house daily. But when i am lazy, ha.....i just skip a day or so. I know how it would look like when the house is just nearby the road. Lately i seldom open the windows because it's quite hazy here. I do not want my house to get more dusty! Happy mylotting and have a nice day!

I have just one little girl and a big boy of a hubby and both of them make plenty of messes! He agreed to do some laundry if I would do the dishes everyday. Ironic, since I already do the dishes daily along with a handful of other essential chores we can't live without. Now that I'm up to doing my part of the housework he has slacked off from his laundry duties. Guess it was a one time deal for him in exchange for a lifetime commitment of mine to solely do the dishes!

I have never cleaned my house, for I think it is tired and boring, fortunately, I have a laborious wife, She ofter twice clean in a week,so my house is very cleanly, besides, she enjoys planting some flowers, when spring coming, on the balcony of my house is full with all kinds of flowers.

Huh, I clean my house everyday. I have lots of house chores to do everyday. I need to do all these work by my own :(, no one can help me... My house too facing main road. It is very dusty all the time. Hence I have to sweep the floor and clean away the dust twice a day. I will make sure to mop the floor at least once each day.

I think you should work on a strategy so that you don´t have to clean it so often, because that must be terrible, i guess, to clean it everyday. My house gets dusty easily too, but still, i rarely clean it not even twice a week. Anyway, try to isolate your house or something, in a way to prevent most of the road´s dust to come into your house. I know its difficult, but maybe, if you have the windows less time opened and that sort of things, you may get better results, and don´t have to clean it so often. Happy myloting

I try to clean my house at least once a week but I don't do it all at once. I have a chronic back condition so I can't do too much at once. I try to do one room each day. My house doesn't get very dusty, thank goodness, and I live alone with just my two dogs so it doesn't get very dirty. I found that by using a natural shampoo with no chemicals I reduced my hair loss. Mine was stress related so it may not work for you but you could try it. Be sure it doesn't have Sodium Lauryl Sulphate in it, that's what makes your hair fall out--it is what they use to clean engines with!

Well, you are lucky then, because there are houses, like mine, that get dusty within a day after being cleaned. I think that way of cleaning (on room each day) isn´t the best option, because it gets dirty easily, if other rooms haven´t been cleaned yet. happy myloting

Hello Lulumartin, My house also located near the main road, but I seldom open the front door panel so it cause less dust in the house. And I am so lucky that my husband helps me a lot in doing house chores, so the mopping floor will be done by him. He will do that once a week for the family hall (upstairs) and living hall (downstairs). For me, I will sweep the floor daily. Happy MyLotting to you too.

I clean alittle every day. I usually concentrate on one room and clean it as thoroughly as possible. I mop twice a week, vaccum every other day. If I know I am going to have someone over i do more so it looks right to me. I do windows and such when I see that it needs it. The hard part is not pulling out my hair and getting my grandson to clean his room.

Hello lulumartin. Our house is a few meters away from the main road that's why it's not often times we clean our house. Most often than not I am always the one who would clean rather than my wife since I am stronger to use the mop. Though it is so annoying doing it but there's nothing I could do just for the sake of cleanliness just like doing the laundry which I am also the one doing it...huh!

I own 7 cats so you can understand that I have to clean my house everyday. That includes dusting, sweeping and brooming plus cleaning the cat litter daily..It sure is exhaustion but my hubby does help me time to time. I hate it when hair are lying around and I can relate to you when you say that you are suffering from hairloss. My hair are very long too and combing it sometimes is a misery!

Oh,I guess I'm really a lazy girl. I would not clean my room until I found that the room was too dirty to live in. I rent a single room and everyday,I go back home very late at night,as I need to take part in some classes. So it seems that I have no time to clean my hoom. But the main reason is I hate cleaning the room at all.

2-3 times a week it gets a good cleaning with help from my grandkids, then a thorough cleaning at least once a month where we pull out chairs, tables etc. Then deep cleaning of closets, cupboards etc at least twice a year.
