During my childhood days, my mother trained us to do household chores. She gives us instructions on how to do this and how to do that. She teaches us different task so if we already grown up we will be able to clean our own home. During those times, I really like rearranging some household items. After doing some cleaning, I see to it that, something will turn to be different after. I will rearrange some furniture in different angles so it will look new. Another ambiance to look on. How about you, is there any household chores do you like to do? Are there any tips would you like to share?

Good day to you Hazelrose. You are such a super mom! For me not all mom can do that. Maybe some but generally, helpers comes within to do the cleaning if the mom does the cooking.

I enjoy organizing things and keeping things organized...if that makes any sense. I like keeping things in order, basically. I don't move around furniture a lot but mostly I check the cabinets and rearrange things accordingly. I check if things need to be discarded and do that, too. If there's anything that I can share, well, it's that containers and baskets can do wonders to help organize your cabinets.

Hello Bart78, Just like you, I am also doing the cleaning together with the beat of the music. You are absolutely right, music will keep you going without sometimes noticing that you are a little bit exhausted. Thank you for the response.

I like washing dishes.. heheh..I really have no idea why I like doing it. maybe because it does not require a lot of energy, and I can still watch tv while doing it ( or atleast listen to it. hehhe. )

I hate doing chores EXCEPT washing the dishes. I don't know why... I guess I just love the feel of bubbles in my hands. Haha!

I have been born and brought up in a respected middle class family.My mom is very strict about cleanliness and stuff and she has ensured that I can do all the household chores starting from cooking to washing utensils so that I can sustain myself alone.I do a lot of work.Starting from tidying and cleaning my room in the morning,then washing my clothes myself.I also cook sometimes so that I am in the habit of it.I can prepare my meal without any help.I have done a lot of electrical works at home also.That was just because of my inquisitive mind.Then buying vegetables,mowing the garden,cleaning the cooking utensils almost house hold chore I have done.Infact I have even washed my bathroom.

Hi Aira, I love cleaning the bathroom and the kitchen. it makes me feel so fulfilled for making it extra clean and smelling good. It's also a stress management technique for me... an exercise. I enjoy brushing the toilet bowl making it shiny white and the bathroom wall too. same with our kitchen. everything under the stove/range, the sink will be extremely clean.

I generally hate all kinds of chores, but one chore that I enjoy is doing the dishes. Right now, my dishwasher is hopelessly broken so I have to wash dishes by hand. For some weird reason, I like washing dishes this way. :P But that's the only chore that I enjoy. I hate everything else, I'm a very lazy person.

I would like to iron my clothes and cook. Except that vacuuming the house or folding the washed clothes. I wish to have a maid at home who can do all those work. I am really lazy to do work I would say to do all these alone expect when I have some company I would do somework.

I'm getting to the point where I do not like to do household chores anymore. But, I have to because this is basically my job. I am a full-time, stay-at-home mom. I would say I hate ironing and I like cleaning the most (dusting, vacuuming). When my kids were small, I often got crazy with all their little toys (with small parts) scattered everywhere. For quick clean-ups, I take my broom and sweep them all in one corner where I can quietly sort them out - not bending each time to pick up a piece here and a piece there.

Well, I don't like very many household chores, but I love cleaning the bathroom. Especially the sink in the bathroom. It is not because I'm weird and just like touching things that have probably touched private areas of others, it is just that it makes the house feel cleaner immediately. If the bathroom is clean, the house feels cleaner. The sink in the bathroom is usually covered in toothpaste residue, soap residue, stained from this and that. Once you clean it, the place looks brighter. As a matter of fact, I think I'll go clean it now...

When it comes to household chore I like cooking. I like to try out different recipes which can make my family happy. I used to like washing dishes but due to a sore in my hand i do not do it nowadays. I too like to rearrange the furnitures in the room to give a better look but my husband does not like and does not allow me to do it. Welcome to mylot and happy mylotting.

Since I was a little child the only household chores I enjoy doing is "sweeping the floor". Hahaha.. But I also do the laundry every weekend and I think I like doing it better than cleaning the entire house. But my favorite is rearranging some furnitures and decorating the house...it is like a therapy for me.

I like sweeping the floor. But my most favorite is washing the dishes and cleaning the bathroom - anything that involves water, except for laundry. It feels therapeutic, in way. And when I do that, I don't like being talked to, I don't know why. But it's like a break, even though you're doing chores.

During my childhood days I remember that I do some cleaning in the house, such as sweeping, husking and putting floor wax, I water the plant especially the orchids of my Mom. Now, I was the one preparing for food and cooking. I also do the washing of the dishes.

I like to clean and I like to have a house clean at all times. My favorite household chore would have to be vacuuming and changing the bed sheets. I don't mind so much the laundry. I clean each room at a time. I will clean both bathrooms and then start with the bedrooms. I love to clean when everyone is out of the house and I love to rearrange the furniture in the house from time to time. Like you said it makes the room look new.
