House is always kept as tidy as possible. We have a 3 year old but will put the toys away at night, dishes are always done, kept hoovered. I'd say superficially clean. We try to do more in depth cleaning when time allows but it's never left messy.
I'm in the OCD side of the spectrum, cannot settle unless the place is tidy - hoover daily, keep a clean kitchen, bathroom etc. I cannot sit down and relax unless the place is tidy.
nopey nope nope. Messy git me. I will tidy when visited but that's mostly it. Unless I suddenly get a mad urge and go on a cleaning splurge.
Minimum wage should be higher. But because it isnt I can afford a cleaner.
The wife keeps asking about a cleaner. Are they actually any good? Prices vary and I'm not sure how much they'll contribute?
The missus does the cleaning. Eldest daughter the dishes and cuts the grass for pocket money. I work the long hours.
1 9 month old baby, 3 indoor cats, 2 lazy adults.
We live in relative squalor.
They vary, we have had some average ones over the years but most have been decent. Current lady is excellent. With two kids and both of us working full time we cant be bothered spending half Saturday cleaning. She comes on a Thursday or Friday morning and spends 3 hours cleaning the whole house(not tidying as we are generally tidy and also have a clear up the night before).
All depends if you have the time to do it yourself.
.... surely not!
I keep it very clean at all times, I say mum look my dinner is done and bang! The mess is gone.
no ones a week for an unemployed person who lives alone and never moves from his sofa is fine, for the rest of us 5 to 7 times a week is good
Just lol a cleaner what a lazy man.
How the world is going now unfortunately
You leave dirty dishes 2-3 days before cleaning them?
In the dishwasher, yes?
That is disgusting.
How so? They are in the dishwasher. What would you do, set it going with only a 3rd of a load?
I'd say that was pretty standard tbh?
It's not lazy, I'd just rather use those hours for something more productive. I'm doing 12 hour days finishing my Ph.D atm. I'd rather not spend the few hours downtime I have cleaning.
