What's Your Least Favorite Household Chore?

I have 2.
My new vacuum is in the shop.Apparently it needs to have the cover replaced.I don't like to vacuum this house.

My 2nd is mopping floors.
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.

Ok, add the shower to my list to.
We have 2 one is tiled. The other isn't.Cleaning the grout and then the soap scum off the doors is a lot of work.

Well let's add 1 more.The tubs.The master bath has one that's really deep.Odd shaped.It's hard to clean all around it.No wonder my back always hurts.I think that new mop system is going to make things a lot easier for me.

What's Your Least Favorite Household Chore?

Vacuuming the carpets and washing the floor. I usually have my cleaning lady do them, but she recently broke her ankle at her home, requiring pins, and then slipped in her bathtub, severely injuring her shoulder and requiring more surgery. Poor lady, she's down for the count for quite awhile, so I guess I'll be refamiliarizing myself with my cleaning equipment.

Cleaning up after I cook. I want minions to come in and do it all!

Soap scum? Try scrubbing the shower walls (we have fiberglass, but I don't know why this wouldn't work on tile too) with (wait for it)...shampoo. Seriously. Use it sparingly, and don't stand in the tub in your shorts or swimsuit to do it, but it's easy-peasy. I wet the walls, smear a wet, shampoo-laden sponge all over the walls, then wait a bit. A little water in the tub (or a low bucket, if you're cleaning the shower) and a scrub brush, and you make quick work of the scum. Walls are sparkling clean AND your lungs never gave you any complaints from the caustic stuff. As a bonus, you can use up any shampoo you bought on impulse and then found out that it and your hair were not compatible.

I have an uncharacteristic aversion to this whole topic...

That about sums it up for me too!

The toilet annoys me the most.

I think the people that design them never have to clean them!

I can't understand why a toilet has to have that small space behind it and so many odd places for dust and grime to accumulate, why can't they all be built to sit tight to the wall and go straight to the floor like this one!
