For me i extremely hate to clean the floor. Our house is easy to get dirt from the window so i have to clean the floor every day so that it's good for my kid to crawl. I feel very tiring indeed . What do you think ? Please share.

I think the chore that I most dislike is cleaning the toilets. I am a stay at home mom, so I usually have time to get the cleaning done, and I enjoy doing the cleaning, because I really like to have a clean house. But, when it comes down to cleaning the bathroom, I don't mind cleaning the counter, the sink or the tub, but the toilet absolutely grosses me out! If it were as simple as scrubbing the inside with the brush and flushing, that would be fine, but there is the whole outside to clean around the base, the seat, and the inside rim. It's just overall a horrible job! Give me dishes any time!

We don't clean the toilets every day but i should admit that it's really horrible work . The smell of the scour is so strong that i almost vomit every time.

I don't clean the toilets every day, thats for sure. They don't need it every day, but I should do it probably once a week, and that is never the case. It usually happens every two to three weeks since I put it off as long as I can. There really isn't any daily housework that I dislike, but the toilets are for sure the one chore that I can't stand.

Unfortunately toilet is important for us and we have to keep it clean to make us happy inside.

I think that the housework I do not like the most would be doing the dishes. Though we live with my fiance's parents and they have a dishwasher, bowls get lined up from various things, and it seems we take several arm loads out just to put several arm loads back in. I could stride myself, but rather, I do this chore when I am a bit busy... So I suppose this is why I do not like to do this chore. Other chores are not as bad. Our chores include : Our bedroom, Bathroom, and trash on Wednesday's this includes : The kitchen floor, and utility room floor (where the washer, dryer and kitty litter box are, Our bathroom trash and cleanup, occasionally bathroom trash only from the master bath... So yea... But those aren't so bad, because I am not so busy on Wednesday's. I guess it's more that I am expecting to do these chores on Wednesday, where dishes are an everyday thing. WOOPS SORRY FOR A MOUTHFUL!

It really isn't all that much, it's not something that takes all day to do. Chores seem to be everyone's worst enemy, and it's great when you get help doing the chores. With everyone having a different schedule, those who are home the most are stuck doing a lot of the chores! lol!

I hate to wash dishes too. But in our family people have their own dishes and when they finish eating they would wash their own bowls . Therefore it becomes an easy job.

That is a good way to do things, but it is just me and my husband now and i do all the house work. He helps out every now and then but not very often. He works and does all the yard work though.

the source of word battle among my children is always about who washes the dishes. that is also what i dislike the most. even if i had devised a schedule for the three children to do the dishes, still they had to argue when someone is out of the house on his scheduled day to wash dishes. i think that is the only housework they carefully take care keeping track of the schedule, lol.

For me the housework I don't like most is cleaning the BATHROOM. I absolutely hate cleaning the bathroom. In the shower, the soap scum buildup on the wall & floor tiles drive me nuts whether or not I'm trying to clean them. The face-basin isn't that bad but becomes horrible when water won't go down the sink! At this time I'll mix boiling water & baking soda to pour down the drain while using an old toothbrush or some pointy thing to remove blockage(so not a pretty sight). The upside is that the face-basin smells decent afterward. Moving onto the bathroom mats, I don't understand where so much mud comes from, it'd just beyond me. The not-so-bad part of this whole bathroom cleaning thing is cleaning the mirror. I usually alternate my hands to give my arms a nice workout (think wax-on, wax-off). Cleaning the floor is just pure drama & in an effort to maintain my sanity I am not even going to mention cleaning the toilet!

Yes it's really a big job to cleaning the bathroom . I'm very lazy and i don't clean it every day . When i cann't stand it i will clean it. Good day.

My most hated housework would be cleaning the toilet or bathroom. Because i just don't like the hair trapped on the top of the sink. The sight makes me vomit. I can not also stand the dirt that is clogged in between the wall and floor tiles. It's dark and very dirty. So that's my least favorite work around the house. Cleaning the floor would be much better than this one.

Yes you're right that when we clean the toilet we always want to vomit . By far i've noticed that there still are many chores i don't like ! Good luck.

Hi Grace, I really detest ironing - to me, it's worse than scrubbing the toilets or mopping the floors. It is terrible having to iron clothes on a hot day - the heat and sweat. Not even the air-conditioner helps. And then, if any clothes get creased during ironing, it's so hard to get that crease out!

I don't have this feeling yet since i haven't done any ironing . It seems that what we wear now is quite simple and we don't need any ironing at all. Good luck.

Vacuuming! Ooooh I hate it....lol.... That is definitely the one that I want to avoid most. We live in a rented apartment which has a nasty sort of sludge colored carpet, and whatever I do to it it just looks like some sort of murky swamp. I am afraid something nasty will come up out of it and swallow me... I suppose that is why I hate vacuuming, because I feel I do all that work and it still looks bad..lol We also have a black cat and with the fur she sheds, I swear we could make a whole new kitty! My other evil is dishes, but I was greatly blessed that this apartment has a dishwasher!! We are moving when our lease is up in February, so when we look around for apartments, I will be looking at the floors, and hoping for a dishwasher! :0))) Now, everyone take a break, put yer feet up!

Thanks for sharing here. I've never rented an apartment so i don't know how most of the apartments look like . Yes vacuuming is really a tough chore especially after you finish cleaning the carpet and also find no difference at all.

I think im going to go with the majority and say that ihate doing thise dishes too, so much infact that i will not do them unless i really really have to, my partner does them instead. I have this weird thing about putting my hands into the water with all of those bits of food floating around, it makes me feel kinda sick.

What a fun discussion, I actually find housework relaxing, especially if I am also listening to my ipod! I HATE vaccuming though. I usually ask that my husband does that! I love making sure I have a clean kitchen, although I have to admit it is the most work. If you think about it, the kitchen is the most used room of a house. I also really enjoy washing clothes. I love the smell of clean clothes. Where I live we don't have dryers, so you hang ALL your clothes to dry. Therefore you have more opportunity to smell the freshly cleaned clothes as you hang them up. Like I said before fun topic. Have a Blessed Day!

Thanks for sharing your opinions here. We don't do any vaccuming instead here. Yes cleaning kitchen would be a hugh tiring work and now my mother-in-law is cleaning the kitchen every day because she cooks mostly. As you i like the smell of cleaned clothes too.

I absolutely hate washing the dishes. It wasn't bad when I had a dishwasher. But when I moved, the dishwasher stayed behind. I have even gone so far as to buy plastic utensils and plates so that I don't have as much to wash! Is that lazy, or what? LOL

We don't use dishwasher at all . I used to export some knives to some countries and the client said to me that knives get rusty soon . I did't know why until i found that he put the knives into dishwasher !
