I agree -- mopping and windows are definitely high on my list! For those of you who have good old fashioned tile showers, try using Shower Clean. This is a spray that the last person out of the shower uses each day. Just spray the walls and door and you never have to scrub or deal with mold again. I haven't scrubbed a shower for years and yet they look great!

He failed to mention, he claims he ironed in the nude in those days of bachelorhood, although I never witnessed it. He doesn't iron now by the way. He's gonna kill me.

Watch him carefully Kayelle! (he wouldn't, he would have no one to wash his socks)

Well, I used to iron too. Now I set the Oven timer so I can hear about when the dryer cycle should finish and am right there and shake out and hang on clothes hangers right away. If something were to be wrinkly, I'd save it and when there's enogh of a load, into a rinse cycle and dry again. Don't buy rayon or silk shirts.

I dont mind washing dishes. I do mind square pans. The corners. Mostly if I can, I bake foods like brownies or enchiladas or just about anything in a glass pie pan or oval casserole when possible. Not that stuff should stick, it's I don't have the patience to stand there and scrub.

Most any cleaning chore is easier if you crank up the volume on your stereo.

What's Your Least Favorite Household Chore?

DH wanted me to iron his shirts. Once. Now he knows better.

You wear 'em, you iron 'em.

Despise washing windows, and even my now disabled cleaning lady hasn't figured it out either. DH did get a pic of a service that will do it here.

We watch our soaps, sang in harmony, and it made the chore go much faster for her. Me, I didn't mind ironing at all.

My husband always worked the 3-11 shift. So after the kids were in bed for the night, I would iron clothes for kids for the next day in school. The boys always had to wear white shirts, and the girls dresses. That was one chore I never minded doing.
