I Would Pay Someone to........ - Page 2

I would pay someone to take out my trash. I hate loading it up and taking it to the dumpster at my apt. complex.

I'm surprised by how many people said they'd pay someone to clean the litter box. I find it sort of a 'zen' experience, like those little sand gardens that you smooth with tiny little rakes. Of course, those sand gardens don't usually come with cat cookies.

I would pay someone to vacum the floors. I can't seem to keep up with the cat litter they tend to hold in their little paws and then sprinkle on the carpets after they get done using the box. Especially if it's a fresh box, then they all suddenly have to go right after we clean them.

I enjoy cleaning, i like dusting, sweeping, mopping, organizing. But I HATE (With a passion) cleaning the litter boxes.

So I would pay someone to clean ALL my litter boxes lol!

Mine's a combo: cat hair/floors. Much of the cat hair gets on both the furniture and the floors (and stairs). When I had 9 (now, sadly only 7), I could have swept and mopped the floors 4 times a day to keep them nice (not that I did!). I can't stand the "tumbleweeds" of fur, esp. on the floor! I'm constantly picking them up. I do sweep and mop at least twice a week downstairs, and Dustbust in between that.

Tip: if you have this problem, buy a Dustbuster--the $35 model is fine. Saves dragging out the big vac, but not so great on upholstery, at least the faux-suede stuff I have. Also picks up dry cat food. And, buy one for each level of the house.

I beg you to come to my house! Please????

Actually, I enjoy cleaning most of the time, and find doing laundry kind of relaxing; I just hate putting it away.

I hate vaccing (see my other post). I hate the noise. One of my vacs just died; the other works, but the thingy that keeps it upright broke off. I have 2 level, and I have to drag that blasted thing up and down a few times a week, as I can't really afford a new one just yet.

OMG! I am in a very similar situation! I don't mind vacuuming, but my new Hoover Wind Tunnel is a piece of s**t! First the front panel wouldn't stay on, and now the on/off switch doesn't work!!!!!!!I have to plug it in and unplug it every time! Extremely frustrating! The biggest pain in the buttock is replacing the piece of c**p!

Cleaning the floors. DH used to vacuum regularly, and somehow he's gotten away from that chore over the years. I'd gladly clean bathrooms, dust, wash dishes and do laundry in exchange for doing floors.

We're going to shampoo the carpets today. Or should I say that DH will do it, because he thinks he does a better job than I do. I'll let him have that thought.

My plumbing just messed up! I'd certainly pay someone to clean up the mess that backed up into the tub last night....
Maybe I can trick DH into wiping it out since I have to go to work soon.

['m glad you mentioned the Hoover. I was thinking
of buying one today! I seem to remember that Consumer Reports gave it a very good rating a few years back.

The "dead" vac was a better model, though not top-of-the-line. I bought it in 1/08; it was broken by 12/08. Yeah, I use it couple of time per week, but that's only on 2 not-very-big area rugs, and two door mats. It should have lasted a LOT longer. (The semi-broken vac is about 2 years old, and I think it picks up better. It works, but the foot pedal latch thing broke. That I can understand, but not a newer vac's motor dying so soon.)

I keep 1 downstairs, and 1 upstairs. We have carpet in 2 bedrooms; I used to use a stick vac/sweeper, but Smudge's fur is weird, and those won't pick it up.

Apart from the dead vac, I've had luck with the Dirt Devils.
