Re: How clean do you keep your place/car/whatever?

My truck is almost spotless. I wash it around once every week, to two weeks max. I get it detailed and waxed every 6 months or so. I LOVE to take it offroad, and I figure if it's going to get dirty, get it REALLY dirty. I've had it to the point that the only part that wasn't muddy was the section left clean by the windshield wipers.
About the house, I am a little anal about cleanliness. Can't stand kid toys all over the place, or dog toys. They can get it as messy as they want, but when they are done, cleaning needs to take place. I can't stand a messy kitchen either, and I seem to have this really bad mentality about cleanliness of the coffee table. I hate clutter there. But oddly enough, could care less about clutter in the bedroom. Clothes are thrown on the floor (although only in 1 pile, 2 piles is too much lol), and clutter seems to be abundant. That's the only room that I not only don't care if it's cluttered, but seem to enjoy the clutter there.

Re: How clean do you keep your place/car/whatever?

I keep all of my stuff in a cluttered pile; no organization. Luckily, my wife is super-organized. I do like the kitchen and bathrooms to stay fairly clean. Food, dirt, grime, etc needs to be cleaned up as soon as they make themselves known.

Oh man, every chick I've lived with has been messy. The only difference being, I was messy in my room but they are big time in the bathrooms and common areas as well. I don't need anyone else to do my dishes or clean off where I sit on the sofa or whatever so I try to show the same respect in those areas. Not that I'm OCD about it or get mad if others don't, I think that it's just respectful and the right thing to do.

Empty glass on the nightstand isn't that crazy though, it's just for water right?

Maybe you can talk her into donating what she's not going to use/what doesn't fit anymore, etc. Hopefully all of the extra clothes means that she dresses well, I'd sacrifice space for that, as shallow as it may sound.

Re: How clean do you keep your place/car/whatever?

Funny thread to pull me away from lurching.

I keep the klitchen pretty well clean in my house sincei do the cooking. My wife half asses the rest of the house. Seriously the other day I noticed a shadow in the corner. Serious cobwebs. I cleaned it but its got to get pretty bad for me to do something about it. I hate cleaning.

As far as cars go, it seems like the nicer the car the less time I put into it. When I was younger I kept my crap cars immaculate. I'm talkin seat covers were shampooed monthly, waxed every few weeks, smelling like cocoa butter, steering wheel covers changed out every time they got dirty. My cousin made mention of it a few days ago when he noticed how clean I'm keeping my newest truck, which is 10 years old and paid for. The truck I just turned in on lease, a 2006 Tundra, I kept a wreck from the time I bought it brand new. I've even Rain-X'ed the windshield twice and bought new floormats and a steering wheel cover for the truck!

Maybe its age though. I cleaned my wife's minivan and started shopping for some big chrome wheels for it this week as well.

Oh yeah. I'm pretty anal about cleanliness, and my girlfriend, who I've lived with for a while, is the exact opposite. The world is her laundry basket I swear. I love her to death, but man it drives me nuts sometimes.

Yeah. Its also a financial decision lol. The tires are an ANNUAL expense of 1600 dollars. That's replacing all 4 every year @ 400/tire. And that's cheap. They're the stupid run flats. Now that it cracked 100k miles and out of warranty the Odessy will have some bling! I'm doing it for her birthday.

Hell you might as well drop it a few inches and throw some tints on the windows. Doesn't sound like you're one to half-ass things. Just deck that puppy out. Then when your wife shows her friends the minivan, she can say "You Od-essy this shit??" POW!

Sorry, it's a been a long day and I'm a little punchy.

On a side note, I had no idea run-flats were so expensive.

Re: How clean do you keep your place/car/whatever?

As anyone with kids ranging from 3 years old to 8 years old and 2 medium sized dogs, knows that you do what you can to keep the important area's clean, kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms. The other rooms you get when you can and hope that you don't wreck the car due to exhaustion from doing everyday house chores like cooking, laundry, dishes, and what not, then homework with your children, then running them to t-ball or whatever after school activity they are in. Yeah, so if I go 2 weeks with out cleaning my living room or whatever room in the house, well so be it...
