View Full Version : Do you like to clean?

January 7th, 2008, 2:55 PM
Do you enjoy cleaning? (anything really, house, car, etc)

If so, where does your enjoyment come from? Does it come from the act of cleaning itself, or knowing everything is clean afterwards?

Perhaps you don't like cleaning but like to know things are clean? A necessary chore?

Or do you just let the dirt pile up?

Me: A necessary chore, I don't like cleaning but I do it anyway because otherwise nothing would get clean.

Depends on what I'm cleaning, really. Some things annoy me, others I don't mind at all. If I've been studying to hard, it's a good distraction for a break. It's nice when you can see a difference, like when I'm scrubbing buckets, I can see the dirt float right up and out, then it's filled with nice clean water afterwards.

Another thing is if there are just basic dishes to be done, I actually like getting them stacked away properly, but if I have to deal with stubborn stains or oddly shaped pieces, I don't like it as much.

I hate having to vacuum the entire house, but I'm fine if it's just small areas. I try to keep all the areas I spend a lot of time in tidy. I can be lazy or ignore some things, but I naturally try to keep things in order. Clutter isn't any fun and it's distracting. =/

I just realized I sound kind of dorky, but I don't mind cleaning in general. ._.

And I like washing my car, but the inside stays clean, so I don't have to worry much about it. I have a vacuum for it, though. =p

Well, I don't mind cleaning, I wash up my pots after I've ate and all that, but I do let my room get abit too messy, but I also clean it when it gets to that state.

I love to clean lol, I like to clean my room, the bathroom outside anywhere lmao

I like cleaning sometimes, depending on what I'm cleaning or how I'm feeling. I don't mind cleaning the downstairs 'appartment' cuz I spend a lot of time there and I like it neat. I'm also trying to keep up cleaning my room but after Christmas stuff started to pile up.
I like vamcuuming too... and cleaning my hamster's cage. It's probably the only time I get to see my hamster out for awhile... xD

I hate it no matter what I'm doing.

I don't even think I can expand on that to make this not spam. I mean, I guess I don't mind it once I actually start but I get so easily distracted when I'm tidying and such and it takes me forever to begin because I avoid it and procrastinate. :(

Depends on my mood, but mostly I'm fine with it, I like it cause it helps relieve stresses (maybe it's just me...)

January 7th, 2008, 6:08 PM
Yes, I really like cleaning I'm a neat freak. I hate it when things are dirty, dusty, and unorganized everything just looks nicer when it's clean.

I only clean when I have to. XD I hate cleaning though because I'm lazy...I know its bad but, who wants to waste time cleaning when you could FUN things? O.o;

January 7th, 2008, 6:14 PM
I love cleaning! ^o^ I wanna wear a maid outfit and clean all day long~!

I hate cleaning, and I'm terrible at it. My only talent is washing the dishes, though, and I love that. XD;;;

I only clean when I'm being forced into doing it. >[

Occasionally some sort of demon with severe OCD will possess me, and then and only then do I enjoy cleaning. Most of the time, I wouldn't mind having a clean room - I just don't want to get off my butt and make it that way.

January 7th, 2008, 7:11 PM
Gah, I hate cleaning. Unless it's my room, of course, 'cause I'm in there a lot.

Oh, gosh... yes. I love cleaning so much. More, I love organising things and putting things in their place ♥... *sigh* I don't like the kind of cleaning about like scrubbing and washing, or really anything where I have to get myself wet... But I do very much like a clean thing that was once dirty.

January 9th, 2008, 12:33 PM
I hate cleaning. I find that within an hour of me hoovering it is just as bad with dog hairs as before I had done it.

January 9th, 2008, 12:49 PM
Well, I'm usually the one who has to do most of the cleaning while my mom is at work, so I'm used to it. That doesn't mean I enjoy it, but... it's one of those things that has to be done, so I guess I'm better off just accepting it. XD;

I do have fun organizing things in my room, though, when I have the free time and can work at my own pace. ♥

I love it when the house is really clean and stuff, but I hate cleaning. Not to mention once something is clean, it becomes a mess again a day later. PHAIL.

January 9th, 2008, 2:18 PM
I love cleaning because I know everything will be nice and tidy afterwards. Like, there is no downfall to cleaning up :3 I like cleaning my room and bathroom, especially if I have music to listen to and if I'm bored. But if I'm forced to help clean the house when I have other things to do, then I don't like it as much.

Not really.

But it has to be done, and no one else in my family will do it. D:

January 9th, 2008, 5:29 PM
I hate to clean but I don't like messes either. =/

So I clean but I don't enjoy it ;_; ITS EVIL!!

January 10th, 2008, 2:47 AM
Well.. actually, sometimes yes. XD

Sometimes I'm just in the mood to blast some music and get the place sparkly clean. I generally hate it when it gets super messy, so I pick things up as I go to keep it clean.

Other times, heck no. ;x Couldn't pay me enough (figure of speech-- PM me to speak terms and payment ;D)

I'm not sure what you meant by that, but I like way it sounds. ;<

Me, nah, I'm not a big fan of cleaning. I tend to procrastinate a lot and only clean most things before they start getting out of hand. It's the laziness, it stalks me. There have been rare occasions where I found cleaning to actually be fun. But like I said, rare occasions. One thing I've never had problems cleaning is my body, do it every morning, other than that, I'm not so big on it. I mean, I do do it, but I hardly ever like it.

I like to keep my room tidy.

I am obsessive about having my Computer Table clean, if a piece of paper is sitting on it, I will toss it into the trash

I hate cleaning!
My room is always messy... :P everything on the floor.. clothes, paper, trash, empty bottles, money, lol...

But anyway, I also keep my computer room relatively clean.. and computer desktop.. I get nervous when there's too many icons and i clean them all :P

If you have an ounce of knowledge in you, that should've shown my answer.

January 11th, 2008, 1:49 PM
I always have to clean/tidy the kitchen >_>
But I only like to do it when I can put on my fav music. It makes it more fun to do.

January 11th, 2008, 1:53 PM
I only clean when the house is really dirty

Other than that, I do nothing


January 11th, 2008, 5:36 PM
I have the common sense to stop things getting too messy, but I won't go out of my way to clean something.

January 11th, 2008, 11:02 PM
I clean.. if its to much for me... or... my parents force me to x.x

January 12th, 2008, 7:19 AM

That sounds interesting. How did you figure that out?

January 12th, 2008, 5:02 PM
I love cleaning. I think the enjoyment comes from being active, I hate being still for to long.

Awesome, you can do all the cleaning, vacuuming etc. when we move out together XP

Anyways, I'm not fussed on cleaning to be honest. I just do it cos it has to be done :\

January 13th, 2008, 9:20 PM
Bah. Cleaning is for meurotics & people who mispronounce the word "tortilla".

I only keep my dorm straightend. I hardly go out of my way to clean.Whenever I try, I get so airheaded, & I have no idea where to start, or where to put things.

So I *hardly* ever do.

I only clean when I need to clean. Like if there was a lot of trash in my room and I'm to the point where I can't fully get out of my room, then I clean.

In fact, maybe I should clean my room and get those empty Pepsi cans I have all over the place.
