The Real Truth on How You Clean Your House, Even If You Won't Admit It

I am going to drop a huge confession on you right now — are you ready? I HATE CLEANING! I know there aren’t a whole lot of people who love it (I know you exist though), but for me it’s a full-on hate relationship.

My house is not a waste-zone, but it is far from perfect. I swear our laundry room is trying to kill me and keeping up with having the kids home all the time, my husband working 45+ hours a week, and me now doing 35 hours a week at home is quite the juggling act. Also, I will admit that I have/will come up with any excuse to not do it — I hate it so much.

I have had this hate for a long time though. I remember back to my chores as a child and there were some tricks we (my siblings and I) had up our sleeve that made cleaning go a bit faster. I would be lying if I said I never did some of these still now … because I totally do.

And you know what? I bet many of you do as well — though may not want to admit it.
