i am not a neat freak, quite the opposite! i'm starting to get more organised again but i'm still a while off regular cleaning.
BUT i judge houses that are too clean. it's a house, with people living in it! not a hotel room, not a show home, a lived-in home! i like a bit of lived-in clutter, a bit of mess. not filthy though. but i find if i go into a house that's too clean i don't feel comfortable sitting on the couch, or using a cup, or anything.
and then i find myself apologising for the mess in my house lol ironic much? admittedly i don't quite have places for anything though.

If someone's house is dirty (as opposed to messy), then I might think to myself that it's a bit gross, but would never say anything.
But there's a big difference between dirty and messy. Messy is lived in, dirty is unhygienic.
My house is usually pretty clean, but DD has just been playing tea parties and the loungeroom floor looks like a bomb has hit.

A lot of you are saying you don't judge messy, but judge dirty. If my house is messy (which it often is!), then it is also dirty. You can't clean the floor if there are toys and washing everywhere. You can't wipe down the kitchen benches if there's washing up everywhere. I just dont get how You can be messy and not be dirty too.
Although.. I live in a shed and we track a LOT of dirt and sand etc in so my house probably cops more dirt than others.

Well i dunno, I think i'm messy but not dirty ATM there is stuff everywhere. But I know the floors and bathrooms were cleaned the week before christmas and were spot cleaned/swept since then. I can see out my windows lol so i know they are not too bad
I clean some things daily (like working surfaces in the kitchen), and the rest (under the toaster, inside the microwave etc) gets wiped fairly regularly, maybe weekly. So though it might be messy I still know its clean underneath. Someone else might think it wasn't but meh, i"m happy.
