    The only one I care about that gets really bad is the garden. We haven't done much with our yard yet (which is one problem), but it's our fruit trees/pot plants... they just don't get the maintenance they should. This means plants aren't doing as well as they could, and I've killed many plants completely unnecessarily

    And vacuuming, I hate doing floors. I can't believe people do floors every day, ours are more like weekly if we're lucky.

    And unfortunately friendships have been let slide lately. New years resolution, see my friends. There are good friends I haven't seen all year

    Hand washing. It builds up and builds up until eventually I get angry with it, and do it all. Hate doing it. Unfortunately DD has lots of hand wash only dresses and dress-up outfits (and I have a few dresses).

    Ironing. DH does his shirts. I only do something if it's too awful to wear without ironing.

    Judging by a previous thread on here - changing towels! I thought once a week was fine...

    Spare rooms. Throw things in. Close door. Get scared of going back in there. Do massive clean out. Vow never to do it again. Repeat.

    Default Sorta spin-off from cleaning thread. What do you let slide...?

    All of these sound like me too!!

    I'm a dreadful "housewife" hubby cooks so I'm meant to clean, seems only the kitchen gets done!!!!

    And my laundry, I'm just shutting the door at the moment!!!!

    Floors, I make up a spray bottle of floor cleaner and spot clean with the mop, no buckets of water.

    Dishwasher on every night and kitchen cleaned before bed, hate getting up to messy kitchen.

    My renovating priority was storage for everything! Finally feel like we're getting there with that one.

    New goal is to put washing away once it's done instead of leaving it in the basket.

    Default Sorta spin-off from cleaning thread. What do you let slide...?

    Oh I'm the opposite with my washing! I literally HAVE to fold it and put it away as soon as its off the line or else I go crazy!!! This is probably due to the fact that I hate ironing with a passion so I figure if I fold as soon as its dry I can skip the ironing! Luckily DH is a diesel fitter and I don't have to deal with his overalls so no ironing work shirts for me. I may have to develop my passion for ironing once DS1 starts school next year!

    So my slack list includes ironing, windows, gardening and cooking.

    I'm pretty good with everything else honest

    Anything that I can let slide, does slide. I'm simply not interested in spending my life doing things that don't make that big of a difference.
    That being said, as far as I'm concerned scrubbing grout with a toothbrush is slidable, but other things like making sure that the sink is dry after I finish dishes can't.
    So I guess it's all a matter of perspective lol.

    You're not alone, every one of these applies to me. My spare room only has room to open the door at the moment :O an the laundry sink is full or cardis and ballet dresses but the rest of the house is okay

    I don't iron at all anymore, hubby has to wear welding grade clothes for work so they're too much of a pain!

    Decluttering. That's my main one. Also, bathrooms. Don't worry, I do clean the toilet and floor, but the sink/shower/mirrors/unused bath I do let slide a bit too often.

    I NEVER let ME slide. After my ex left me and I had to really look after myself to drag myself up from that trauma, I've learnt how vitally important it is to my whole family's wellbeing to look after me and make sure I am ok, confident and happy. And if anyone in my life doesn't like it, they can get stuffed, because after 10 years with my ex where I was slid back to way beyond last, I am ensuring it will never happen again!
