How clean do you keep your place/car/whatever?
 
I don't mind a bit of mess and clutter, but not a big fan of it being actually dirty, sometimes I'll let it slide for a bit but every few days I have to at least do a full clean of the kitchen, which I used to be messy with when I lived alone. I wish I had a picture of this place when I moved in, dishes stacked on the stove, counters, sink, dishwasher empty hahaha.

In my room it's pretty messy, but not dirty. Just clothes, newspapers, and stuff laying around everywhere. Desk full of CD's, a couple beer bottles from last night, etc.

Do you ever clean up after roommates (if you have them)? I don't really mind since they let me move in before I even had the money to offer (friend and his wife, 4 year old kid too, so it's crazy). Seems every few days I have 2 dishwasher loads I do, along with some handwashing.

About to go clean the rest of the house, dog hair and tissues everywhere. I've finally met my match for being messy, I thought that I was bad.

I have maid service clean my place every two weeks. Around the house I try to do the little things to keep the place nice but you always have those days where you're like f'ck'it. I detail my car every summer season. I'll wash it now and then but there is no point around here.

I've done a 180 from the way I was when I was younger. I used to be a big slob, but now I'm more on the neat freak side of things. The bad thing is once I start I can't stop.

I'm really bad with my car. I even keep swiffers in the car so I can constantly wipe down the dash.

I can deal with clutter and disarray, but I really can't handle a dirty bathroom or a dirty kitchen. I can't let the toilet, bathroom floor, tub, or sink go more than 1 week without a serious scrub. And I can't let dishes pile up or messes sit on the counter.

I want my food to stay sanitary. And I want my bathroom to be a place where I go to get cleaner, not dirtier. It's hard to beat a shower in a freshly cleaned bathroom, too.

My wife's a neat freak, she jumps in and does most of the cleaning. But if she didn't I'd be all over the bathroom and the kitchen.

Exactly the same way, can't have a dirty kitchen or bathroom. I (or my wife) make sure the kitchen sink and counter is cleaned every night after dinner. Don't want dirty dishes piling up.

But do we leave papers lying around the living room? Sure

I can be messy, but not dirty

I heard Obama has the White House pretty trashed and leaves crap all over the place.

Oh man. Even thinking about cleaning makes me exhausted. My place shows the effects of that.

LOL, firstdown is multitalented. Not only can he change a political thread to a non-political one, but he can change a non-political one to a political one!

I hear wifes train their husbands in getting their shit together and keeping clean.

Thats what my wife did to me and after you get in the habit of just putting stuff back in its place it becomes second nature. Now my garage is a little messy and my car still could use some work but with 222,000 miles cleaning it does not make it run any better.

That's the common perception, and maybe it's true, I dunno. I definitely was messier when I wasn't married. Of course I was also a lot younger.

In my case at least, it wasn't like the wife cracked the whip and said "keep the kitchen clean or no vag for you." I think over time I've just come to appreciate the cleaner environment.

I don't know if that's a product of aging, or just a product of getting used to the cleaner environment that she kept. Either way, I am indeed more interested in helping with the cleaning than I was when I was single and 21.

One of the things that was a bit of an eye opener for me when my wife and I moved in together was just how messy she is. Clothes lying everywhere, toothpaste lying on the bathroom counter without the top on, empty glass on the nightstand...crazy

Me too. I guess it is a college thing. I'll be out in a bit and I expect to change. It's just not "cool" after college to be messy.

So has she started cleaning up after herself more or is it only guys that get cleaner? My wife cleans our home and I just try to not make a mess and I do the yard stuff. I do help clean the kitchen after dinner.

After I gave up more closet space and dresser drawers for her clothes she has gotten less messy. Seriously she has like three closets and two dressers for her clothes...and yet there still isn't enough room.
