What household chore do you DESPISE?

I can't stand cleaning out the fridge. I will do extra chores that day in order to skip out on it.

What about you?

None really bother me too much... I do always dread mopping, though, because mopping always seems to set a curse on the Florida's Natural carton. Sometimes it feels like mopping day wouldn't be complete without orange juice spilling all over, just after I empty the mop water. :/

I loathe washing dishes. I dislike wearing gloves to do them, so I always end up soaking my nails til they're soft, then breaking them afterwards.

I absolutely loathe dusting. I'd rather clean the bathroom than dust.

The only thing I just can't do is clean the cat litterbox...my wife really hates doing the dishes. I don't mind the dishes, she doesn't mind taking care of the cats, so we trade

Dusting, I'm very allergic so I have to hop in the shower right after to avoid a rash. I also hate using chemical cleaners because some give me a headache. Cleaning out the litterbox makes me gag sometimes, yuck.

I checked a lot of them. I hate taking out the garbage. Luckily, I have a husband and my youngest daughter doesn't mind doing it, either. The night before trash day, we all scatter in the house to get all the garbage cans, one in each bedroom, and one in each commonly used room. I hate taking the recyclables out to the curb, as we have a 150+ foot driveway, and it's LOOOOONG. I let My Man do it.

I don't mind dusting on it's own, but my allergies act up when I dust. I have to use disposable "Foofy Fluffies" so I can throw them away immediately.

I don't mind doing dishes right after a meal, we have a dishwasher, but pots and pans and knives have to be washed. I HATE when people put dishes in the sink and they sit in cold greasy water all night. I've actually thrown away the sink stopppers, so people can't do this. I also hate when My Man puts a pot in the sink and then uses it as a waiting dish pan. Then, when I go to fill the dishwasher I miss the silverware, because it got thrown into the cold greasy water in the pot.

And how is it SO hard to scrape the plates and throw away the napkin. My middle daughter and my husband put dishes IN the sink (when the dishwasher is waiting and there is room) into the sink with food all over them, and the freakin' napkin on the plate. What IS that?

I don't mind cleaning the bathroom at all. I like a clean bathroom.

I didn't used to mind doing laundry, but with fibromyalgia, and a very narrow stairway to the basement, it's really hard for me to bring the laundry downstairs and then bring the clean laundry upstairs. I'm terrible about doing laundry, as it.... hurts. Two flights of stairs carrying laundry, and trying to fit the damn laundry basket into tiny stairwells (we live in an old house) is difficult. It freaking causes me real pain!

The OP mentioned cleaning out the fridge. I hate doing it. I also hate throwing away food, but you can't save it forever. I just threw away more than week old minestrone last night, as it was using up two good storage thingies, and it was old. I hate the stuff in the back, when you aren't sure how old it is.... or what it might have once been, if it gets forgotten.

I've been known to actually dispose of inexpensive storage containers rather than open them, when I know it's been in there too long and I don't want a round of dry heaving. Bleh.

Dog messes. Gross. And the fur! We have a Malamute and he's just about to start his summer "blowing of his coat." He sheds all year anyway, but spring is the worst. Why does it collect under the dining room table? I pulled enough fur from under there yesterday to knit a sweater. Of course, the black lab doesn't help at all. But, her fur is short and sticks to things. UG. The rabbit is the worst. He belongs to our middle daughter and she needs to clean his cage every other day.... but she waits longer than that. ICK.

There are a few of those that I definitely don't look forward to. I actually like vacuuming though. I do that quite often when I'm putting off another chore, LOL.

AHHHHH!!! Napkin on dirty plate in the sink!!! I HATE that! It really strikes a nerve with me because I don't understand why on earth you would do that! LOL

Oh, and laundry is the devil, I know it too I have spinal stenosis and we live in an apartment on the top floor. Our laundry room is downstairs in the back of the building and it's hard on me carrying the loads up and down the stairs. We're moving next week to a downstairs apartment though, so I expect us to have much more clean clothes regularly then!

Dish washing! I can't stand even touching dishwater, regardless if it's clean or dirty. God bless the dishwasher.

It sucks, doesn't it.

It makes my day, when I go downstairs and someone has taken the clothes out of the washer and put them in the dryer and started it. It makes my day even more if someone carries the laundry upstairs for me, but this doesn't happen often.

Yard work or dusting, in the yard (no matter what I do) there's these huge bushes with thorns on them all over and I'm not allowed to get rid of them because it's some kind of wild rose that my mother's bf makes me leave alone because it 'attracts butterflies' =_=
And the house collects so much dust it's insane...I have no idea how but I'll dust stuff off and not even a week later it's covered again.
