Ants crawling along the fridge door.
I have an inside dog and cat but they will leave you alone or they go outside. I can't stand pets who lick and jump.
I can't stand going to someone's house and not having somewhere to sit because every surface is covered in clutter.
I'm pretty easy going at others houses but I can't stand filth- dirt caked around the bathroom basin, kitchen benches etc.
There's a distinct difference between surface mess and filth.
I hate tea towels with a passion, no matter how many times I wash them and what I wash them with or how I dry them, they always smell yukky. I let my dishes dry in the dishwasher or air dry in the rack if they have been hand washed.
Dirty kitchen sponges, tea towels and people who don't wash their dishes properly.
A friend of mine washes up in a few inches of water and doesn't rinse first so it ends up like soup and also will just rinse plates that have had raw chicken on them instead of washing them properly! Gross!
I have a dog and cat inside, the dog is a toy poodle so doesn't lose hair. The cat DEFINITELY doesn't jump on our kitchen benches or dinner table, but does get onto the formal glass dining table, I don't mind as we've used it about 3 times in over a year, and it gets cleaned by my cleaner every fortnight, plus when we do use it I put a table cloth down to protect the glass.
I have a newborn who is a vomiter which results in lots of clothes washing, so I dislike that my guest bathroom is accessed through the laundry as I find it the hardest room to keep up with! Also hate when guests come over and I can never seem to have all the dishes washed.
One day in a perfect world!
I hate when people don't wash their hands before preparing food, and also when there is no soap at their sink. Really shows that they don't care for hand hygiene *gross*

Dirty, wet towels laying on the bathroom floor.
Cats on benches or tables. Ew.
That "a big smelly dog lives here..." smell... you can tell that either the house or the dog more regular cleaning. lol.
Being served a drink in a "washed" but not "washed properly," cup or glass. If there's old food stuck to it, it's not clean and I don't want to use it thanks.
My dog has his own recliner which is covered in a blanket. Dog and blanket are washed regularly (blanket every week, dog every two weeks at least), I vacuum every day and the house is aired out every day.
Is that gross to you guys?
