AsSalamu' Alaykum, :wave:

I love watching this show with the hubster:

[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCpzP7nxsxs]YouTube - How Clean Is Your House - Worst Flat Ever 1[/ame]

:vomit: :p :vomit: :cry:

So how clean is YOUR house?

Mine is awesome MashaAllah. My mom raised me with attitude that your house should always be in the condition to accept company and have them spend the night. They should be able to eat off the floor if they wanted to. Then my dad raised us with this OCD way of cleaning EVERYTHING. A guest bathroom takes that man 3 hours to clean. I'm not that bad but I am thorough like him and I got my hubster to start cleaning like me too. :D I come home and he's like, 'I cleaned the baseboards for you. :D" :-/

:cry:

My parents are very messy. I learned to keep places clean from working in construction. The foreman used to badger me about messes and make me sweep and pile up any displaced lumber and what not :)

:smooch: at men (man? :D ) who clean without fuss. The p word really shouldn't be in there, though.

I love 'befores' and 'afters', but I have to say the 'afters' on this show are a bit disappointing because I want to see NEW things as well as clean things.

i didn't click on the link because i can't be bothered to watch morons live like animals. i'm almost a neat freak except i don't mind if my room is kinda messy. clothes in the corner or an unmade bed don't bother me but i can't stand if any other rooms in the house are dirty. i'll clean the house from top to bottom for 7 hours if i have to before i can relax, then i take a cold shower and nap.

i love the smell of clean :cry:

oh and i'd rather my husband not help me..i'd have to do it again, the right away, anyways :D

it's realistic. it showed how you can take used pieces of furniture and make a place look welcoming and nice. i like the "lived in" look, things can't always look as if they're straight from a JCPenney catalog.

That's a mental illness. I wouldn't go in there without a full hazmat suit.

*shrug* i'm not a neat freak either. We normally clean on the weekends and one good clean once a month but because we travel so much, sometimes we fall behind on that too. We usually clean together alh. Other than that, we like to do other stuff or go out rather than fixating on making everything spotless. to each their own. alh.
Never do I argue with a man with a desire to hear him say what is wrong, or to expose him and win victory over him. Whenever I face an opponent in debate I silently pray - O Lord, help him so that truth may flow from his heart and on his tongue, and so that if truth is on my side, he may follow me; and if truth be on his side, I may follow him.

im not an obsessive neat freak but i like things to be presentable even if it's just me (i.e. no mountains of dirty dishes, no half-eaten meals lying around, no wrappers or crumbs littering any surfaces, no hair and water around the bathroom sink). i also try to avoid eating anywhere besides the living room (my apartment doesnt have a dining room).

i like to preserve a "lived in" atmosphere so while i insist on having my place clean 95% of the time, i don't think it needs to look absolutely perfect. my husband on the other hand is a slob and seems to dislike helping out [unless explicitly requested--no, NAGGED to do so]. we have a lot of disagreements over housework.. i can't stand it when men take the attitude that housework is a woman's job when both partners are working, attending school full-time (that in itself is a full time job), or both.

I'm somewhere in the middle, I'm sure. I had wanted to keep my house substantially less messy (not dirty, but messy) than my parents did while I was growing up, and the best thing is to just minimize the amount of clutter and crap you have around the house. It's easy to keep the floors clear if you barely own anything.
