You do too much housework. HTH. hmm

SheSaidHeSaid Sun 23-Apr-17 13:39:14

You wash sofa covers once a day?

Of course it's too much.

WorraLiberty Sun 23-Apr-17 13:40:01

If you think it's ok then it's ok confused

It looks pretty normal to me, although when typed in a list it can look like it's more than it is.

But ultimately, I'm not sure why you're asking as you seem fine with it?

chickenjalfrezi Sun 23-Apr-17 13:40:41

Way too much. What impact does this have on you and those around you?

WorraLiberty Sun 23-Apr-17 13:41:44

Have you all spotted the 'every week' in the list?

There's no gap, so it does look as though the list is every day, but just the first part is.

MrsPringles Sun 23-Apr-17 13:42:04

You hoover twice a day??

God you must like housework when do spend time enjoying yourself or with the family?

Ceto Sun 23-Apr-17 13:46:01

Why on earth would you hoover twice a day? You also shouldn't need to do laundry twice a day. Unless you're all exceptionally grubby, sofa covers shouldn't need to be washed every week either.

QuiteLikely5 Sun 23-Apr-17 13:46:03

That's hardly anything! Or at least normal.

Didyoumeantobesorude1 Sun 23-Apr-17 13:46:13

You are doing too much. Does your husband mean that you need help with the housework, or counselling help to enable you to reassess your views? Is he offering to help himself?

BernieKosar Sun 23-Apr-17 13:47:00

Did he mean help as in getting a cleaner, or mental health type support?

Either way it's much more than I do.

Bluntness100 Sun 23-Apr-17 13:47:04

Wow you do clean a lot...😱

1234512345Meh Sun 23-Apr-17 13:47:50

Totally your choice but if you did want to cut down, I would downgrade handles to weekly, hoover once a day and wash the sofa covers a lot less. Maybe get a throw and wash that once a week. Your sofa will last a lot longer then.

Windows I think once a month would be a lot!!

WorraLiberty Sun 23-Apr-17 13:49:05

I'm genuinely baffled as to why some people think that's a lot? confused

The hoovering twice per day is excessive (although perhaps they have hairy pets)

But other than that, it just looks normal?

chickenjalfrezi Sun 23-Apr-17 13:49:08

Why do you clean door handles every night

Doyouthinktheysaurus Sun 23-Apr-17 13:49:23

That's a hell of a lot of cleaning!

Hoover once a week, ditto for bathrooms and other stuff.

And I don't think I've ever routinely cleaned door handles! Only when you can see the dirt.....

Crispsheets Sun 23-Apr-17 13:50:15

Why do you Hoover twice a day?
And clean doorhandles?

WorraLiberty Sun 23-Apr-17 13:50:38

Oh yes, I'd wash the sofa covers less too.

But things like rubbing over a few door handles takes minutes.

I do honestly think it looks more because it's typed in a list.

Even the laundry. I mean it's not like the OP is taking it down to the river and beating it against stones. I'm assuming she pops it in the machine? confused

Dawndonnaagain Sun 23-Apr-17 13:50:57

I'm not sure I've ever cleaned a door handle!

HolditFinger Sun 23-Apr-17 13:51:21

If you fancy a change of scenery, you can come and live here if you like OP!

I thought I was fairly fastidious about cleaning, but it seems I've been put to shame. How do you fit all that in?

Oysterbabe Sun 23-Apr-17 13:52:26

I've lived here 3 years and never cleaned a door handle. #slob

Beeziekn33ze Sun 23-Apr-17 13:52:33

OP - you sound lovely, when can you come round to mine?!

exLtEveDallas Sun 23-Apr-17 13:52:35

My home is hoovered twice a week and the kitchen sides, the loo and sink are wiped over (flash wipes) every day.

On a Saturday the house is hoovered, kitchen floor mopped, kitchen doors wiped, bathrooms cleaned, bedding changed and all sides dusted.

Sofa and cushion covered are washed once a month.

Windows, erm, yearly? Maybe? blush

Yeah, I think you do too much.
