What is your favorite/least favorite housekeeping task?

My least favorite is sponja. It is a unique israeli form of torture. About it it is written, he who has not done sponja in his life has not experienced work.

My favorite: I can't think of anything at the moment... Laughing

funny thread!!

I don't mind laundry (I am sure freilich remembers Wink ), I dislike almost everything else, and yes, sponga is torture!
least of all would be cleaning toilets and ironing!

Folding laundry is no problem. The clothing gets nicely folded and placed in laundry baskets and then nothing happens after that. I have such a hard time actually putting the clothing away in drawers. Don't ask me why, I have no idea. Yesterday I put away three weeks worth of clothing. It felt so good. I wish I could remember that feeling everytime I do laundry.

I also don't like ironing, it's a tough call between that and sponja for least favorite. when we first got married dh would do ironing and in exchange I would do sponja, then we changed over and now we've changed again. Can't decide which one I hate more!

Laundry and vacuming incl mopping I don't mind. But I hate to do windows and mirrors and dishes, or peeling tons of veg for pesach Mad (I do enjoy cooking and baking though). But I hate dirty dishes lying around even more!!! Oh well part of life has to get done !

My 3 least favorite things are: cleaning the bathroom(toilet majorly), dishes(make my hands dry and gross) and ironing(I iron usually the day I decide to wear s/t I can't do a whole pile at once- too frusterating.)

I dont like showers/tubs. It is hard to get the best angle to scrub, and as much as I do it doesn't look brand-new!!

most housework I find boring and tedious. but ironing and the bathrooms are the worst. ironing is just boring.
I enjoy organizing and decluttering. That is the best part of pesach cleaning.
I find listening to torah tapes helps me get into housework

sponja is a form of mopping your floors it is a shmate put on a squeje not sure how to spell it. if you ever watched people how they clean those windows in the stores well it is like that but much bigger. you dump water all over the room and scrub your room with a broom or if you want with your shmate connected and then you sponge it all out of the room a pain in the neck and back breaking job!!! after that you wipe off the extra water with the shmate so no one slips and breaks their arms or legs. I hate it it is the worst housekeeping job I have ever done.

sponja is rough- but I would have to go with toilets and ironing for the worst.
I do enjoy folding laundry though- its sort of relaxing in a weird way.

I had to laugh at the way u worded that. the real reason is, of course, u dry it so noone steps in it and makes it all dirty, when u realise u will have to do sponja again, their arms or legs might get broken... Laughing

actually if someone steps in it after I clean can't do anything about it but just give a humph. once I was walking on a wet floor after it has been sponged "clean" there were still puddles on the floor that with my eyes I couldn't see it. I almost could have killed myself. so swipping the water out for saftey yup is better then ruining my hard work floors that I cleaned.
