    I thought about starting this thread after completing my least favourite household chore.

    I hate defrosting and cleaning the refrigerator. I live in an apartment that has an ancient refrigerator. This thing has to be older than I am, since its freezer is not self-defrosting. My parents bought a fridge in the early 70s (in the favourite 70s colour harvest gold ). Even that fridge had a self-defrosting freezer. I'm stuck with this ancient thing that pretty much requires getting rid of everything, unplugging it, and waiting for the ice to melt, then finally cleaning it. Any other household chore is quick and easy, compared to defrosting and cleaning this ancient refrigerator.

    How about you? What's your least favourite household chore and why?

    Fridge\freezer defrosting would definitely be in the top 5!

    Cleaning or scrubbing hardwood floors is my bane of housework...it's a big hassle even with a machine :(

    My parents hated doing the hardwood floor scrubbing and waxing. I remember they got carpeting in the bedrooms around the same time they bought the harvest gold appliances, since they couldn't stand the floor care either.

    My wife is a SAHM, so she does most of housework. (Go easy on me guys; I bring home 100% of the bacon!) I do help with housework, but I don't do half of it. My least favorite chore is vacuuming the floors.

    If outside or gardening stuff counts...
    Raking and gathering up leaves just depresses me to no end (big 'ole frown)

    Our yard is overplanted and the clean-up around here is fulltime torture!
    I swear I'm going to buy a commercial gas engine powered vacuum to keep on top of it.

    Emptying the dishwasher.
    I'd rather clean the bathroom and tub or stab myself in the face with forks over that job. Lol

    I'm single and don't have roommates, so I have to do all of it myself.

    One of the reasons I never wanted a house is because I hate yard work. If I was going to own a residence, it would be a condo where somebody else did the yard work.

    i've recently come to the conclusion that we already have a guy for the yard and now we are getting someone to clean the inside. i hate household chores, all of them. the one that tops the list for me would be cleaning the hardwood floors. they never stay clean for very long.

    Probably cleaning the fridge is the pits for me. The other stuff I don't mind as much these days.

    My least favorite chore is cleaning up cat hair. It's because you can never get it all and it goes everywhere! Laundry is a very close second. Lol

    I forgot about the mess they make dropping dust bunnies everywhere when you stop them and try to dust them off.

    Believe it or not, they are still manufactured in Ohio by a company that was founded in 1895.

    Isn't it true that cleaning or repairs are always easier at someone elses house?

    For me? Weeding. Killing the stinking weeds. I can't grow grass, I can't do a garden, I can't keep a plant alive even if it is a cactus. I kill everything I try to grow.

    But weeds?? The one thing I NEED to kill just comes back, and back, and back.....

    I'm with you, snowmutt. I just finished mowing and weed eating the yard....after I walked around for an hour pulling the weeds up! My thumbs are definitely not green.
