1. the floors - I have vacuuming, mopping, I hate it all
2. the washer machine thingie where you pour the detergent and the fabric softener - they get really gross and it''s hard to clean it good
3. anything that''s hard to get it into (too small so none of the brushes fit, etc.)

I''m sure there''s more I hate to clean but those are the 2 I can think of right now

So f** time-consuming!

The shower/sink/toilet.. YUCK!
The stove.. I feel like it''s impossible to keep clean.
Dusting, just because of the fact that my house has more built in shelves than I knew possible, so I have to do a LOT of it!

The crystal chandeliers. And the windows, too.

This is going to sound strange, but I don''t hate doing toilets or the sinks - our bathroom is pretty new so they shine nice when I''m done.

Don''t get me wrong now...I''d rather not do ANY of it - but on my list of things I hate those two aren''t on it...

Cleaning the shower is the worst for me! Followed closely by dusting, because that seems to be a never ending task in our house.
 

Definitely. Maybe

Clothes! I HATE doing laundry. I''ll clean the bathroom, wash the floors, do the dishes, anything else, just NOT laundry.

Bathrooms don''t bother me, but I hate raking leaves and I hate cleaning the fridge and the litter box...

1. The George Foreman grill (even though the plates are detachable). It''s just so hard to get into the little crevices.

2. The window blinds. They get so dusty, and we don''t have a special blind-cleaning brush so I improvise with either a dustcloth or feather duster, but nothing works very well. So frustrating!

Really anything, but I almost never clean the floors. I gave up my maid when the economy started to tank, and I am embarrassed to say that my husband does most of the vacuuming and mopping now because I hate it so, but I do the rest of the housework. Even though I am a SAHM, there are days that I seriously considered going back to work just so I could hire a maid again, guilt-free

I hate cleaning the shower ... it takes so much effort and I get all tired and sweaty by the end of it. I also hate dusting and doing the floors. That''s why these three things don''t get done as often as they should

Unfold a coat hanger and put a sock on it to get between the blinds. If the dust is really stuck on, take it out of the dohickies that hold it to the window casing and lay them in the bathtub. Spray with 409 or cleaner of your choice, let soak for a few minutes and rinse by turning on the shower. Put a towel over the window sill (I put the end in the window and close it) and hang them back up let them drip dry.

I hate cleaning the George Foreman too- we have the mini one and it''s a PITA!!!

I hate the liter- so my BF does it, and I do the laundry...

I hate cleaning the dishes too- it takes me forever to actually getting around to do it and by the time i do, they have stacked up SO high- we don''t have a dishwasher FYI

I HATE cleaning:
- my 12 qt stock pot
- our windows
- our shower--we have white subway tiles in the bathroom and they are IMPOSSIBLE to keep perfectly clean

(Ha! I just noticed that I called the stockpot "my" stockpot--can you tell who uses the kitchen in our house?)

I hate cleaning the bathroom. BF, bless his heart, did it the last time and I''m hoping that''ll become "his" job (like taking out the trash)

I hate that - why don''t they make things with cleaning in mind?

I don''t know what subway tiles are, but we have white tile on our shower floor and walls...they are very hard to keep clean...

And let''s not even talk about the grout...

Yeah, cleaning the showers is a real pain in the arse. The sinks, toilets and tub are not so bad.

ETA The stainless steel appliances can be quite a pain to clean too now that I think about it.
