What is/are your least favorite task(s) to do for spring cleaning?
:hmmm: Are there certain tasks that you really don't look forward to doing?

Maybe this is the task you put off until the last minute every year? Which one is it? :mop::iron:

:snoopy:Maybe it's the other way around and you really like spring cleaning?!? :multi:

I totally dislike doing windows, walls, & carpets.
Cleaning stove tub etc does not bother me. THO' I can not do the tub anymore nor get down on floor or ground anymore. So scrubbing floor is a no no

The refrigerator is the worst thing for me to do. My oven is self cleaning so it is no big deal. I hate to paint rooms so my hubby does all that. I can't get down on my knees any more either Pag, if I do there better be someone close by to help get me up. I use a clorox mop now but they sure don't get the floor clean like the old fashion way. I am a procrastinater with everything so not all spring cleaning gets done. I find myself cleaning year round. I hate procrastination but I have been that way for a long time.

My very least favorite "cleaning" job is the windows, then the outside of the house (minus yard), and then the "pack rat" items that we collected since last year that is either no longer useful and/or not needed for the person/thing it was collected for... also referred to as "stuff" tossing (donating). ;-)

Windows are the worst thing for me - My husband enjoys doing them though - he gets a bunch of newspapers & the cleaning solution & goes right to town - I'm glad he does them which reminds me, he needs to do them this weekend!!! LOL.

I am with Theresa. I don't mind spring cleaning. The only thing that upsets me is how did it get so dirty in the first place? Are we pigs? lol

Well, I guess I don't like to clean up puke and poop but that wasn't on the list! lol

In the spring we have to clean our wood burning stove. That is always a mess and very time consuming. But a very nessary job. Once we clean that for the season then I can take my curtains down and clean them and do windows, etc. No sense in doing spring clean to the wood burner is done for the season.

I really dislike cleaning the windows, they are so fidly and these ones don't turn round like our others did at the house before we moved. Cleaning these are such an effort

I don't mind most spring cleaning chores. I'm not fond of washing walls or cleaning the oven.

I don't like spring cleaning at all but if I had to say my least favorite it would be the refrigerator Ugh! One tip a girlfriend gave me that helps alot is to line the produce bins with paper towels, it catches all those icky drips that you don't discover till you pull the drawer out. I also keep 2 sweater box plastic containers in the frig. and keep odds and ends things in there, much easier to pull out the clear boxes instead of leaning down and looking in the back of the frig. for something. And of course, clean up is much easier too... just pull the plastic boxes out, fill with water and soap and clean and put back in.

Actually, I don't mind cleaning, I'm a wee bit of a perfectionist, but I have to admit I hate cleaning the stove and refrigerator. Before we moved here, I had a self cleaning oven, but this one came with the place and it is a me cleaning oven. Nothing nice about it at all, between the fumes whether it be a cleaner or some ammonia, the mess or anything, it's a horror job. Frig gets cleaned each week, but sometimes you just have to get down and scrub it. BTW "Happy Mother's Day" everyone.

I dislike cleaning wndows, but do love being able to see out of nice, clean ones! Love doing outside work and keeping the yard nice. My son helps me a lot when it comes to that as he likes a well groomed yard also...

Minny 05-11-2009 08:24 PM

The worst thing for me is the fridge.. I despise that job!
I don't like scrubbing walls.. I guess I'm getting too old to do it anymore. Our walls are all white wallpaper, but that's going to change soon. I hate this all white. It was like this when we got it. I like a little color. I'm thinking of doing my living room in a light beige color. Not sure about the bedrooms yet.

seleach 05-12-2009 08:13 AM

All our walls are painted white. I am very tired of white walls.

Pag36 05-12-2009 08:58 AM

I dislike white walls too

Minny, I just painted mine a toffee cream and I love it!
My most dreaded spring cleanup job are the screens. They are so hard to do and they never come clean!

Pag36 05-12-2009 07:04 PM

You are right on the screens ugh yucky job

Minny 05-12-2009 07:11 PM

I usually take my screens out to the driveway, take a broom & soapy water & scrub them on both sides with the broom, then rinse them off with the hose.

Behind my stove was getting so crummy so I pulled the white wallpaper off & painted it a pretty yellow. I'm thinking of taking the rest of the wallpaper off on the other side & painting that yellow too. It's only papered below the cabinets so won't be much to paint. Why they put white wallpaper all over this place is beyond me.

Cooked 05-12-2009 07:14 PM

I can't get some of the screens off my older windows! The kitchen window is another that is truly hard to get off, and then you have to put it back! LOL If I get them off, I will certainly try what you do. Thanks.

shirl43 05-12-2009 08:03 PM

Thank God my husband does the screens or they may never get done. He takes them out side and uses the water pressure hose on them. I used to do them the way Minny does and it works well.

seleach 05-13-2009 05:31 AM

I take my screens out to the driveway. I take a bucket of soapy water and a scrub brush to clean my screens and then hose them off.

I cast a "I like spring cleaning" vote, because once I get motivated, it always feels so good to pull it all together and see it done, however, my drive isn't what it used to be, so more careful planning and scheduling is needed to see it through.
