Bathrooms and windows.

Ironing? Huge waste of time imo. DH tried to get me to iron his Navy uniforms when we were first married. Um, no. You're in the service, not me. You know the requirements. You can do it.

Me too, except I'd leave out the uncharacteristic part. I just hate to clean house. Used to pay DD to do it before she moved away since "someone" doesn't like strangers in the house and would never let me have a cleaning lady. And by pay DD, I mean through the nose pay, highway robbery pay but at least I didn't have to do it. Now though I don't have too much house to clean since we've moved.

It is a very nice set up.I did both bathrooms which are pretty good sized in 15 minutes.They would normally take me an hour or more.The mop actually cleaned the baseboards.I didn't have to use another tool or get on my knees to scrub them.Glad I spent a little more and bought it.

I really like that the mop handles are very sturdy.Easily adjustable for taller people to use.The dispenser is just a small bottle. Eh on that.Not really necessary, but ok.Bought 2 extra pads thinking better safe then sorry.It will be a long time before I'll have to replace the first one.

The spinner was a surprise.It looked smaller in the picture.It's actually huge.One could do laundry in it.

The only problem I did have with it was being able to lift it to empty.
Easy fix.Caught one of my sons in the hallway.Made him lift and dump it.

I'm adding 1 more to the bad boy list.Cleaning the oven.
That's on my to do list today after I mop the kitchen and dining room floors.Once that's done.My sons and their stupid frozen pizza messes will be banned forever from my kitchen.

Handing you a rusted crusted baking sheet for your son's pizzas.

How old is this son? Maybe it's time for him to start learning how to make and clean up after his own favorites. You know, for when he's out on his own and has a craving for homemade pizza

I figure if they are old enough to cook, they are old enough to clean.

I went to 3 different places to buy replacement mop heads couldn't find them.So I came home got online and bought this one from Amazon.

Amazon.com - Spin Mop - Deluxe Stainless Steel Spin Mop and Bucket System with Wheels by MopRite - Dual Function System for Spin Washing and Drying - No Foot Pedal Needed - Includes 2 Microfiber Mop Heads and Scrub Brush - Satisfaction Guaranteed! -

It's a bit pricey.But I like that it has a 3 gallon capacity,stainless steel, and replacement mop heads can easily be found.No more lifting and carting around a heavy sloshy bucket.
Thanks Munky, Every Christmas my daughter asks me, "What do you want for Christmas?" Like you said, it is a bit pricey. In fact for me, it is way out of my league. So I will ask my daughter to get it for me. Right now I have a step on pedal bucket. It works fine, but the less strain on my hands and fingers, the better for me. And as for emptying it, Spike stops by every night. And if he doesn't, he will the next night. What grabbed my attention, was the cleaning of the blinds. Remember how tall the windows were in your classrooms? Well that is what we have here. Impossible for elderly to clean.
