Ironing. Yup, even thought we live in a world where is is okay to wash and wear, I have to say - iron is the least of the jobs I like to do!
I don't like cleaning the toilet. Can handle most of the other stuff!
Yep! you got it.
Dusting the nick nacks.
I really don't like ANY cleaning jobs!
I have a cleaner as do not want to waste my precious time doing something I hate.
I will cook all day, but NO to cleaning.

I think probably cleaning out the fridge and pantry and finding the odd bit of old vegetable that's gone off. Though of course if you keep on top of it it never gets too bad.

I hate ironing too but I just stopped wearing clothes that need to ironed. The same with stuff that needs to be hand washed.
Hate cleaning the bathroom. Also hate cleaning the stove and range hood in the kitchen.
I try to avoid ironing by hanging up clothes as soon as they're washed and hope that any creases fall out once I'm wearing them.

The job I really hate is cleaning the oven. I know if I did it more regularly it would be easier but I tend to leave it too long and then have a battle on my hands.
Arranging and re-arranging and re-re-arranging my children's wardrobes. They make a mess! :)
Cleaning the oven, what a chore! And the chemicals you have to use give me a headache...
bathroom and shower
To those folk saying 'ironing'....

In August, 1974, I bought an ELNA Press.
It sits on top of my ironing board. It presses with 100lbs of pressure. It does the hard work, as I sit on my comfy, well back supported chair. It had a Guarantee of 25 years. It's been to be repaired twice, both were extremely minor repairs.

All types of clothes can be pressed. There is a quick way for shirts which one is taught. Both can be pressed under 90 seconds' each!
Jeans? They toddle off to wardrobe themselves after being starched & pressed! School & Army Uniforms, easy.

It's worth investigating. Some other Companies' also make 'ironing presses'. Don't know individuals' income, but there's no 'labour intensity' as with an iron.
Cleaning my cat's litter tray! Why is cat pee so horribly smelly! Practically need a gas mask, & this is daily!
He was raised from kitten hood as a house cat, so I can't just let him outside or I'll never see him again! My previous cats were day outdoors ones, & kept in at night. I didn't have to clean anything, the kids' did!
To those folk saying 'cleaning oven', you should get an 'Ovenu' person to come & clean it!
Got mine done last October, & it came up looking like a brand new one!
Worth giving them a call, & get a quote any way!
I get a 'cleaning lady' in, regularly!
Have HATED 'housework' all my life!

Give me cooking, any day!

cleanign up after someone else's cooking effort
I don't like having to cook all the time. Coming up with tasty healthy meal ideas each day becomes a chore. Sometimes I love cooking but having to do it every day takes the pleasure out of it.
I have recently started using a company that provides recipes and ingredients for three meals a week and that had made it much better.
This is one type of mould. We had the black stuff on walls, and this greyish white stuff on wooden furniture. I would clean it and it came back within a few weeks.
oops, sorry! that was supposed to go in a different thread. Finy was asking about mould and I wanted to show what it looked like. Please delete if you will Finy.
