The Friday Five, about housecleaning

1. What housekeeping chore(s) do you hate doing the most?

Washing the bathtub, mostly because despite all the ads for magic cleaners and all the advice in the books "to make it easy", nothing really cuts soap scum other than elbow grease.

2. Are there any that you like or don't mind doing?

Vacuuming. I have a really cool vacuum cleaner, and it's mentally satisfying to pour the gallon of mud and cat fur into the garbage when I'm done.

3. Do you have a routine throughout the week or just clean as it's needed?

Mostly just clean as needed.

4. Do you have any odd cleaning/housekeeping quirks or rules?

They don't seem odd to me...

5. What was the last thing you cleaned?

The dishes in the sink.
