I like housework, I REALLY and truly do! I know it’s strange but I LOVE a super clean and organized home and I would rather do it MYSELF than hire a maid. That is one reason why in Brazil and China where maids are so cheap I didn’t have one. And I mean, what else am I gonna do all day if I’m not going out every day to work. I do enjoy cleaning.
BUT there is ONE job I detest, REALLY detest.
and that is OVEN CLEANING! You can’t get more ordinary and boring and horrible than this…
I have been procrastinating about cleaning my oven since I got home. Normally I don’t like this job and you can imagine after probably 4 years of it not being cleaned just how much I was dreading it. It was not a job I did on our short visits home and the kids didn’t clean it so I am sure it has been 4 years. And by the looks of the grease…yeah at least that long!
Today, after a quick walk with my friend I tackled it!! Tackled it with Easy OFF, scouring pads, baking soda, oven cleaner, razor blades and anything else I could find. I scrubbed and dug and let it soak and scrubbed it some more. I even took the oven door apart and cleaned it and FINALLY… hours later… it looks like new again.
And while I was at it I cleaned the stove and microwave and fridge and dish washer. ahhh…they look good.
AND Now this…
PLEASE nobody cook today and mess it up. I’m going out for supper AND I need a manicure! lol
Is there a horrible job that you just dread doing and that you keep putting off til another day?
