We Want to Know Wednesday #16


It is time for WWTKW!  Crazymama provided the questions this week, and they are all about household chores, just in time for spring cleaning!  Queso and Mamarazzi co-host this linky.

{1} Fantasy style, money is no object, if you could pick one type of help which would it be? Why?
A. maid 
B. nanny
C. personal chef
{2} What is your least favorite household chore?
{3} What is your least loathed (or favorite) household task/ daily chore?
{4} What is your favorite cleaning supply? Do you have any magic cleaning tips to share with your readers?
{5} What is your usual housework avoidance activity?

1.     I would have to say none of the above.  I would hire a chauffeur.  Definitely, I would do this because I hate driving in Hwy 280 traffic!

2.     My least favorite household chore is dusting blinds.  I truly hate it.

3.     I love to iron, and I iron everything.  Ironing burns tons of calories, and it engages your core while you are doing it, so it is good for you!



I love using linen spray while ironing!  This one is from the Sister Soap Company.

4.     My favorite cleaning supply is:


My favorite cleaning tip:

Use a dryer sheet (it can be a used one) on your blinds after you've cleaned them.  This helps to repel dust, and it truly works!


5.     I really cannot avoid housework since folks with asthma live here.  :(

Thanks, Crazymama, for a fun list of questions!

Until next time...

  1. I can't stand ironing--well that's not exactly true. I don't hate it, it's just so time consuming and boring.

  2. That makes 2 of us VandyJ...I cannot remember the last time I ironed anything. In fact, I prolly need to go dust my!

    Good tip about the Bounce, I never thought of that but I always put a couple in my vacuum bag when I replace it. Makes the whole house smell great as I vacuum!

  3. oh I would have to have the personal chef.
    I have always said that if I had come into money and only allowed one thing that would be it. Oh life would be grand to have a personal chef.
    I am with the others, no ironing in this house unless an emergency arises, lol

  4. Oh, man, I never dust the blinds. Now I'm scared to take a close look at them. :/

    And thanks for the tip about ironing!

  5. BRILLIANT tip about the dryer sheet. i am totally going to try that one!!

    i love to iron too. i forgot to add that to my list...thos since wrinkle release from Downy came into my life i iron less and less.

    a chauffeur...too funny!

    thanks for linking up!

  6. My mom used to make us dust the blinds, slat by slat! I hated it. I will not have them in my house.
    I'll take the maid, and I will drive you. It can't be worse than here in N Y!

  7. I will definitely try the dryer sheets on the blinds.

  8. Great idea about the dryer sheet, never heard of that!
    I'll come be your chauffer if you'll clean my house :)
