Ladies does your S.O clean up or just tidy up? Does he know how to scrub down the floors, dust, thoroughly clean the bathroom, clean the stove etc etc??

My husband's idea of cleaning the bathroom is dumping some toilet bowl cleaner in and swishing it a few timesCry then flushing, pouring scouring powder in the tub and wiping it down. And thats itLOL

I ask him if he thinks that is clean and he looks so proud of his work like "Yep!" Stern Smile

I tried to show him how to thoroughly clean but he just doesn't seem to notice certain things that need to be cleaned. And when he tries (bless his lil heart) he just seems to make more mess so I end up going behind him.

I used to get frustrated because I thought he was just being funny but now I think he may really be domestically challenged.

The Virgo in me would never let anyone else clean my kitchen, husband included.
 
Makes no sense to me, I would just go over it anyway, and that's just a waste of cleaning products.  The sh*ts expensive.

The Mr. has lived on his own for years now and he loves his hardwood floors to be clean and smelling good, he scrubs his bathroom and kitchen. It feels good to know he is not helpless in case I am unable. We share duties and that works for us.

Three weeks ago we had a huge argument over the bathroom.
He now cleans the entire bathroom every wednesday.

The first wednesday, he cleaned t way too late in the day and I got impatient and cleaned it myself

The second wednesday, he cleaned it, i went to inspect and found that he didn't clean the bowl. An argument ensued.

Last wednesday, he cleaned it all very well. Scrubbed the walls too.

He washes dishes too, tries to anyways. And i literally rewash every item. What a waste of my bloodclaat soap!!

He's good as sweeping the floors, making the bed daily, and folding clothes.
He also cooks well and bring my breakfast in bed every morning so I guess that's the only reason i've not choked him out yet.

Oh...and i wish he'd wash down his body hair before he gets out the shower. Long ass man hairs gross me out!!!
Ewwwww i have a huge hair phobia. I hate hair unless it's soft, luscious, kinky, and attached to my head!

I'm not big on 'cleaning day'.
I prefer to maintain my cleanliness to avoid having big messes to clean in the first place.
This strange being does not understand this concept.

I told him he should move next door.
That way, we'll kind of live together...but not really.

He think i'm joking, but i'm not.

I think everyone should find what they are good at and stick to it. I'll be damned if I cleaned something or did a chore and Mr. Blaquefoxx or anyone else feels the need to inspect it and point out what they don't like. Its bad enough I have to deal with that with these Haoles on the plantation -____-

On the flip side, he's currently making us shrimp omlettes.

Just when you want to tell him to sweep up his pubic hair and hit the road, he goes and makes you reconsider

to some people cleaning means different things I guess. Your idea of clean might be washing your curtains and windows and waxing your floor everyday while another man might think its doing these things once a month.

Most of the time hubby does the cleaning but it's "man cleaning".  It just is.  After a few rotations I do a "kfoxx cleaning" and he maintains it to his satisfaction but he HATES when I do it because the comparison makes him feel some type of way.  When I'm done he's very happy to have a perfect maintenance point to work from.  I don't expect him to do it the way I do and I think I would feel some type of way if he did.

Yeah this is pretty much my point. I think in a lot of cases man cleaning is different than woman cleaning. I had one boyfriend who was absolutely neat. He was like anal about it.

Is it wrong that I want my own room. I just can't deal with clutter & the boo just can't seem to do without it. He tries hard but its still not up to my standards. IMO, there is a specific place for everything and thats not on the bedroom floor.

This sounds like my hubby...
I love a clean house... however, we have two different definitions of what is "clean".    ... He told be to call for service and help... I cant because I love to hoard money...

You know what helped me with my floordrobe? I have a hamper for "clothes that have been worn but aren't dirty". So now I just throw that stuff in the hamper and it's not all over the floor. Also, I don't fold clothes anymore. I've never liked it so I decided, I'm grown, I don't have to fold nothin'. Now I actually put the clothes away as soon as they come out of the dryer (I wash my clothes in the groups they would be put away in).

I also believe in hooks and baskets. Hooks for my purse/backpack, scarves, and anything that I use often but isn't clothing items. That way stuff isn't just strung across everything and it's in one nice area. Some people use those over the door shoe racks for stuff like that as well. I use baskets for mail, though I try to deal with all mail and paperwork before it comes in my room.

UGH. I'll just get a maid. Problem solved Smile

When my bf volunteers to clean, I let him clean...

Scratch that, I let him think he's cleaning...just as an ego booster and I will clean up behind him.

My bf doesn't understand why we don't use the floor rag to clean the dishes...so I don't let him do dishes unless he's putting them in the dishwasher.

He doesn't understand why we don't thaw chicken out with scalding hot water. So I take the food out and make sure I run the water.

On cleaning days, I'll let him think he's cleaning the bathroom and I'll go back behind him and really clean up.

I don't get on his case, disinfection is not his strength. He does a lot of other things really well, and when it's time for those things to be done, I let him take care of that.

I just know that if I want the house cleaned to my standards then I have to clean it. He's not a pig, at all. He makes an effort to clean, he just doesn't understand disinfection and cross-contamination like I do.

Don't talk about my baby...

He sees dishes in the sink, he washes them. He tries...he puts forth his best, I'm not gonna trip.

I'm very anal when it comes to cleaning...I change my hotel sheets. So it's seldom that someone else's cleaning exceeds my standards.

There are far worse things to argue about, I'm not gonna waste an argument on how the dishes were washed.

Yes nuckkka you need to wash them dishes till they squeak!!
I'm tired of putting all of the dishes he 'washed' right back into the sink because somehow, soap doesn't work well when he uses it.

He cleans what i don't want him to clean. I'll come home and find all of my notebooks, hand bags, sunglasses, lip balm, up high where his 6'3 ass can reach!!!! GRRRRRRR don't touch my sh*t nukkkkkkka

I think you might be on to something with that "not dirty" basket Geek

I've tried the hook thing &  I must not have enough of them...

I HATE folding, but he does that very well, so we are okay there. 

Any tips on how to get my SO on a routine if he hates schedules? anyone have any success with that?

^^^ ok cause i was just catching up and peeped that. ggg8, blessings to you. 

questions: how did you find out he was using the floor rag for the dishes? where did he learn that? how did you feel thinking about the times you may have eaten at his home before y'all lived together or at his parents' home? 

these are the things that would flood through my mind before i blanked out and hit my head on a counter on my way to the floor...

nothing wrong with either method tbh. he just needs to scrub the bowl after putting the solution in and get the spray on-rinse off shower cleaner.

Baking soda is great to scrub pots and pans especially those glass baking dishes.
 
I also pour a little bit of soapy water in my pans and bring it to a boil. Removes everything.. yes, I am a OCD cleaner. Can't help it

Yeah but you can't neglect the rest. He forgets to wipe the outside of the toilet and behind the lid. I don't mind that foaming shower stuff but you gotta wash the shower walls too and make sure you wipe down the shower handles and all that good stuff.LOL

lol.. that sounds like my hubby....He is a neat freak with a touch of OCD...When he cleans up he pulls out fridge, stove, washer and dryer to get the dust out. I rarely have to clean because he beats me to it and what looks dirty to him is spotless to anyone else that comes to my house. Don't get me started on the carsLOLLOL He has a stack of those paper mats (that you get when they service your car) that we keep down on the floors in the cars. He gets on my nerves sometimes but when my friends talk about their husbands not cleaning I can't relate.LOLLOL I remember when he use to go over his relatives houses and start cleaning up their kitchens and stuff when we go over for dinner.

I love spraying down with bleach too ...

we have different lanes and we don't always do our own cleaning

but huge messes, everything outdoors, garbage, shampooing carpets, vacuuming, washing floors, washing dishes .. he does without prodding, no need for me to re do or anything like that

what I call turning down the kitchen or bathroom, every surface cleaned and disinfected and everything put away and cooking/baking ... I want these things done a certain way so I handle them

^^^ ok cause i was just catching up and peeped that. ggg8, blessings to you. 

questions: how did you find out he was using the floor rag for the dishes? where did he learn that? how did you feel thinking about the times you may have eaten at his home before y'all lived together or at his parents' home? 

these are the things that would flood through my mind before i blanked out and hit my head on a counter on my way to the floor...  


I don't like mops because I think they hold too many germs so I use rags for everything...like everything.

So this particular morning, I swept the kitchen floor, then I filled up the bucket with hot, soapy, bleach water for my s/o to wash the floor down. I gave him a little scrubber brush and a green washcloth.

The kitchen floor is washed perfectly.


So yeah, the next day, my bf has the day off and washed the dishes while I was at work.

I get home, no dishes are in the sink...and I see the green rag hanging to dry near the sink.

I ask where we got the rag from, and he said it came from the bucket...

I began to feel my pressure rising and my lymph nodes swelling...


I took every damn dish outta the dishwasher/cabinet/cupboard. I think I even opened up some new dishes that were still in boxes and washed them too.

I was so aggravated.

Then there was the chicken incident...

I couldn't even be mad, I just had to make an executive decision...

I just said f*ck it, unless you're pouring something to drink or loading the dishwasher, kitchen is off limits.

whenever I hear horror stories about men and cleaning, I think of the Bill Cosby joke about men intentionally screwing up tasks so that they won't be asked to do it again.  lol

LOL@Goodgirl....I used the Swiffer disposable pads because I can't stand any other mop. I also use paper towels and Clorox clean up when I clean the toilets so I wont have to worry about spreading germs.
