I hate cleaning

We all have to do it, especially now. Usually, I just make sure the bathroom's tidy and the trash is out. But when I know guests are coming, I freak and stay up late wiping up the littlest corners. Argh!

We have been having an intrusion of mice in my house. Caught 4 in 2 days. Does that constitute cleaning? If so......yeah.....I'm not a fan.

Hire a cleaner; it's worth every penny. The lady that does my place is fab.

@Dust and Rust, that sounds like an invasion. Have you thought about getting a cat? I wonder how they're getting into your home? My parents used to have a summer cottage near the forest and they often had trouble with mice. It turned out that the mice were getting in through a tiny hole that my dad hadn't found. Those buggers can fit through tiny spaces.

I'll look into hiring a cleaning service once it's physically too tough for me to do it myself. But I know what you mean, @whaleshark

I guess no one really likes cleaning haha. I always have my stuff here and there and just couldn’t figure out a way to get organised. So when it comes to cleaning, it’s a very annoying task but I often found something that I was searching for previously.

I hate watching dirty dishes pile up, but once I start washing them I kind of like the soap smell and feeling the warm water.

Ugh Mice. Mice have found their way into my house too. Not sure how many, I've only ever seen 1 at a time and only 3 separate occasions have I ever even actually seen a mouse. Pretty sporadically too. At least they're good at staying out of sight and out of mind. My ex wife and my girlfriend are both dealing with mice too. My ex wife's apartment occasionally gets 1 or 2 sometimes, my girlfriend had a full on family move in. Caught several mice via traps or her dog too.

I don't particularly enjoy cleaning, but I also keep myself in a few light housekeeping habits that make a good bit of difference. I make my bed every morning (Nothing fancy, I just mean pulling the blanket back up so it looks fairly decent), I wash dishes either immediately after using them or within a couple hours, I do laundry every week, and clean my bong every week. I should sweep more, I'm bad about that. I have all hardwood floors. But it also doesn't get bad enough to make me do it often.

Just light maintenance like that for a couple minutes at a time here and there does help make it real easy overall.

Automate as much as you can with those fancy robot cleaners. Then hide them away before your mates come over so you don't look like a lazy pillock.

That's my philosophy too. Just spending a few minutes a day tidying up during small breaks makes a world of difference. Then I'm not stuck cleaning a huge mess at the weekend. I share a tiny London flat and we donated a bunch of stuff that was good, but we hardly ever used. The flat looks much better and is easier to clean just from doing that.
