Your favorite/least fav. house chore?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I've been meaning to post this for about two weeks now, lol
I was folding laundry and thinking about how so many people complain about having to do laundry and I actually quite like it so I thought it might be fun to see what people liked to do most in the house chore department.

I'd say washing/folding laundry is my favorite, as long as I have a clean flat surface to fold on.
And washing dishes would be my least favorite, without a doubt!!

I love to vacuum and I hate washing dishes (we have no dishwasher in our rental house--God help us when we start doing foster/adopt)

Least Favorite - Dusting

I can't say I have a favorite chore because I hate them all. Laundry is the worst one, folding it in particular. DH is always compaining that I leave clean clothes just laying there to get wrinkled.

What do you call the chore where you take old papers and other junk that's been piling up for years and get rid of it? I must hate it, because I almost never do it.

Dishes! Dirty dishes make me gag! They are so gross and I hate touching or looking at them.

I also am very bad at actually putting away clean laundry and usually a clean load will sit in the dryer until we need to use the dryer again!

I don't have a favorite chore, but don't mind the dusting, laundry, dishes. What I hate is the bathroom cleaning.

I HATE cleaning the bathroom too

My DH hates grocery shopping, so we do a deal sometimes - I'll go grocery shopping and he cleans the bathroom.

My girls favourite chore is changing the bed - they have to chase all the bed mice away as you put the fresh sheets on!

Guess I would have to say laundry is my favorite, my least favorite is a toss up between doing dishes and cleaning the bathroom....

I really do hate doing laundry---washing the same clothes week after week after week---DH's work clothes, DD's softball clothes. It's just so monotonous!

I guess my favorite chore would be changing the bed linens, not the actual changing part but the lying down on cool, crisp sheets part.

Putting laundry in the washer is my favorite

My least favorite is cleaning the bathroom or vacuuming.

My favourite would have to be washing dishes. I also really like to dust.

My least favourite is doing laundry. Probably because I have a small portable washer that you pull up to and connect to the sink, so when I do laundry I also have to spend time doing dishes before hand. And my dryer is not vented to the outside and it's small, so a load of 4 large bath sheets will take about 3 hours to dry! If it weren't for that, I wouldn't mind doing laundry.

My least favorite is cleaning up all the cat hair that Persi leaves everywhere, especially on the stairs. I brush and comb out handfuls of his hair every morning and have a full garbage bag of his hair that I have been saving now for two years to make a sweater out of. Wait, I am against fur coats too but this is different, it is just the hair that I comb from him. But no matter, by the end of the day the stairs are covered with his hair and they are hand chipped stairs which means there are all kinds of crevices in the wood that the hairs stick to, and unlike smooth wood, it is very hard to vacuum up. And it must be done each day in addition to his vigorous grooming. But he is my buddy and I love him to death!

I don't mind doing most household chores, but I hate doing dishes! I was so happy to see we had a dishwasher, when we moved into the place we're in now!

I don't really like doing the dishes. I dont know why, I just hate it. That's usually why I have my boyfriend do them before he goes to work or on his days off, hehe.

I really don't mind vacuuming. I guess since because it's a Dyson and I like seeing how much cat hair I pick up off the apartment. That and I like seeing how my floors are clean after I do it.

How 'bout making some soft, fluffy pillows with all that hair? You rarely need a sweater in Texas, and you're probably sleeping in a ton of cat fuzz already, anyway!

I hate EVERYTHING besides laundry. I don't mind laundry. I don't have to fold most of our clothes because we have a large walk-in closet, so I only fold things like jeans and pajamas. It's pretty basic.

But, I hate everything else. I don't know why... but I do!

My favorite is probably laundry. My least favorite is definitely vacuuming. It's not that I hate vacuuming, it's more that I hate vacuuming when the cats are laying on the floor. They absolutely will not move (except Eric who runs away at the sight of it)

Least favorite ~ mopping!

Favorite? You're kidding, right?
post #21 of 26
i don't have a favorite - i hate them all! that said, i think vacuuming is my least favorite... or perhaps emptying/scooping the litterbox
post #22 of 26
My least would have to be making up the bed ugh lifting the mattress tucking in the ends I'm sweating just thinking about it . I also don't get a kick out of doing the bathroom moving everything so you can wipe down the counters and tub getting the water ring outta the toilet.
The chore I can tolerate is actually doing the dishes. We have a dishwasher but it calms me down doing them by hand. It must be the way I was brought up my mom and grandmother both do them by hand.

I don't mind cleaning the bathroom but I HATE dishes and vaccuming :|

I would say favourite is dusting, least favourite is taking out the garbage...or cleaning the toilet!
post #25 of 26
I hate vacuuming, just because you have to pick up everything too in order to do it right.

Usually I dont mind doing laundry, but right now I have to use the lausdry mat down the street an dit is a pain.

Litter box, watering plants, and grocery shopping are just fine with me.

Cleaning the inside of the oven And, changing the bedding. It's a king size bed and i'm only 5'1" so it seems to take forever
