I use alot of vinigar. You can use it to clean out your coffee pot and it cleans walls with out messing up the paint.

I use to use vinegar alot because so many of the store cleaners bothered me and I didnt think they were very safer but recently I found this company call Melaleuca which provides safer non-toxic cleaners and personal products and now my house doesnt have to smell like vinegar! Its great I can use these products and not have an asthma attack or worry that my kids might hurt themselves with them plus now my kids can help clean! Amanda www.workathomeunited.com/anix80

most of the household chores makes me feel so lazy..lol but i really hate most is doing the dishes, like it has no never ending dishes inside the dishwasher, and also washing the clothes, that makes me so tired everytime i do the laundry and sometimes, when i do cooking, but dont have choice but to do the household chores..

Those are great tips Thanks for sharing them. I dont like house work either. To motivate myself I set the timer. I tell myself lets see if I can clean the bathroom before the timer rings I usually set it for 15 minutes per room. I hate losing so this really helps me.

Ironing - My least favourite job in the house
I really hate housework and try to avoid it as much as I can. However, if I have to do the ironing, I put a little fresh lemon juice into the water in the steam iron, it gives the clothes a lovely fresh smell.
