    Default Why won't you stay clean?!

    MY HOUSE WILL NOT STAY CLEAN D: I don't even have children yet to mess it up, it's all df!
    He 'cleans' by putting his dirty plates on the bookshelf instead of walking to the kitchen and he changes his towel every week.....

    How do you keep your house clean??

    If you find out let me know. I did a proper clean on thursday because people were coming over on friday. Went out most of the day and I still had to spend 45 minutes cleaning before everyone came over yesterday.
    I would be so embarrassed if someone just dropped in.

    I tried having a cleaning day but it never worked because the place would be clean that day so I wouldn't have much to do and then over the couple days after it would be like a bomb hit and I never had time to clean because of work and studying.
    Now I've cleaned twice this week and scrubbed the bathroom and I can bet in two days time I'll have something new to spend a couple hours scrubbing. >
    Thank God df's mates are the only people who unexpectedly drop in, as they don't care what the place looks like.

    I would love to know too. Tomorrow i have a massive day of washing and cleaning to only do the same on monday as we go away on tuesday and i want my house to be stunning haha.

    I used to keep it in good shape for a few months but then i got really sick and couldnt do a single thing except the bare minimal.

    Hopefully once i get back from holidays i can stay on top of it all.

    My cousin had a DP like this but she is one hard woman. He kept leaving dirty dishes lying around would come home from work, open tins of spaghetti and leave the tins along with sauce splatters everywhere.

    So when he didn't stop after she had asked for the 5th time, she just stopped buying tinned spaghetti. Then she warned that she would serve his dinner up on his unwashed dishes. So she did.

    He still wouldn't clean up after himself, so she threw all his dirty dishes in the bin one by one until she only had two plates left, one for her and one for their DS. Her DP was told to eat out the pan with his hands. He now cleans up after himself.
