What is your most and least favorite house chore?

As you know, I love vacuuming. It brings me almost to the point of ecstasy. But Kitty hates it when I vacuum, so I only do it once every other week or so. I vacuumed the other day and scored about two cats worth of dust and cat hair. My least favorite house chore is probably doing laundry. I love the small of Bounce, and I enjoy folding warm t-shirts. But the machines where I live are wonky and often don't do what I want them to. Taking out the garbage is also a tad boring for me. What are your most and least favorite house chores?

Cleaning the oven? What's that? Oh, I forgot cleaning surfaces in general. Boring.

@JimBo452020 Did you say "bending down"? They could find me like that, frozen for all eternity.

The worst household chore for me is cleaning a man's bathroom—whiskers in the sink, nasty toilet, etc. Ugh! Best one is making beds.

Making a bed can be satisfying. Especially if the sheets have been laundered in the last six months.

I enjoy vacuuming. Seeing the lines in the carpet where it has been freshly vacuumed is appealing to me. However, I hate cleaning the toilet.

I don't have a favorite house chore. I no sooner clean something, wash something, do anything, and it feels like I've accomplished nothing. If I had to pick, I'd have to say dishes is the least evil, along with laundry because I have machines that do the work.

I love the sound of the dishwasher running. But I basically wash my dishes before I put them in there.

Vacuuming is alright. I guess its kind of fun seeing bad things disappear. I should say I hate doing the dishes, but they kind of nice in summer when so hot out or in winter and can warm your hands. Our dishwasher has been broke for 10 years. I have to do them all by hand. I would go with laundry. I hate folding clothes for one, but even before that such a pain in the butt to get all your clothes together carry the big heavy basket and dump soap in the thing and push a button. I can't stand it I tell you. Then I go that was not so bad, but the mental part of laundry to get it going is so draining.

My favorite chore is sweeping up the junk inside of my bedroom and the kitchen/ The worst part of working is picking up the fallen tree branches outside the house.

@TheHorse I like the idea of going outside, the problem is placing the broken branches in the trash can which is usually full with trash.

Most favorite chore would be defrosting the fridge. It just calms me,no idea why. Can't really think of a least one really.

@TheHorse of course not. Perhaps your fridge is auto-defrost. It takes care of itself.

Doing the dishes by hand and doing laundry are my favorite household chores. I only do the pots and pans and any large serving pieces by hand, otherwise all of my dishes go into the dishwater. I actually hate dusting as well as vacuum cleaning, probably vacuuming the worst.

@TheHorse Okay... We set dishes into the sink and run water into them so food doesn't stick. I wash dishes at least twice a day. I don't LIKE washing dishes but I dislike getting ants or roaches more.

My question is: Which ones do you enjoy doing the most and the least. I love vacuuming. It's like mowing the lawn. But I do not like scraping yesterday's food off of dishes as much.

Do you have a landing strip near your house? I could come by periodically in my Lear Jet and do your vacuuming for you. You can help pay for fuel with Scotch, assuming you're OK with Scotch.

Two house chores I hate with a passion--dusting. I hate to dust, truly. The other one is cleaning the oven. I am allergic to most cleaners, so it takes a long time to do the cleaning with mild cleaners. That Easy-Off type of stuff puts me in the throat swelling mode and I just get so sick. Want to come over and clean my oven? I'll do all your laundry. Hey, if we were closer it would be a great trade!!

I need to do a lot around my apartment but I have sort of let everything slide. It began like a game, I had a bunch of papers and other stuff on a table to sort through, Freddie dumped most of it on the floor, I picked up, he dumped and I got tired of this and let everything stay where it was and kept working on my PC. Now Freddie sees that everything is still all over the place and he has started knocking videos off a plastic shelving to add tot he mess I just keep looking at my PC
