1. How neat are the clothes you wear? Do you iron? Fold them promptly? Pull them out of the dirty laundry?

2. How do you make your bed? Hospital corners? All over the floor? Or somewhere in between?

3. Do you leave dirty dishes in your dishwasher? In the sink? On the counters? In other rooms?

4. Are your floors clean enough to eat off of or is there an old science experiment growing in the corner?

5. How clean is the outside of your car? How about the inside? Is there junk in your trunk?

1. How neat are the clothes you wear? Do you iron? Fold them promptly? Pull them out of the dirty laundry? They re semi neat. I personally love doing laundry. I know, I am crazy! I fold them promptly, but I don't always put them away right away. I DESPISE ironing. My hubby is a nurse so he needs his uniforms ironed and guess what? He does it himself!

2. How do you make your bed? Hospital corners? All over the floor? Or somewhere in between?
Somewhere in between. I have never been a fan of hospital corners. If I go to make the bed, I tuck the sheets and blankets in all around and let the bedspread out. If I make it! If not, then I have to make it before I go to bed because I have this weird thing where I can't sleep in a messy bed!

3. Do you leave dirty dishes in your dishwasher? In the sink? On the counters? In other rooms? I am so bad for this. Now that I have a dishwasher, I have been using it. But I leave dirty dishes in the house all over the place!

4. Are your floors clean enough to eat off of or is there an old science experiment growing in the corner? Somewhere in between. I usually sweep 10000 times a day because of Aiden's messes. If I don't sweep, he will eat food off the floor and who knows how long it has been there. So I try to sweep at least 2 times a day, even though it feels like I am ALWAYS doing it.

5. How clean is the outside of your car? How about the inside? Is there junk in your trunk?
I don't have a car, so this doesn't really apply!!

Luckily my dh is a neat freak, and I see ds picking up on that a little.
  • Clothes - hung up straight from the dryer
  • Bed - sheets have to be perfect or I'll toss and turn all night. Blanket has to be almost perfect.
  • Dishes - dh does them each night. we run the dw once a day
  • Floors - we've got 2 dogs who clean up after my toddler... they're clean enough for Ben to eat off of, but definitely not me! He eats dog toys, dog food, and plays in the water dish, so his immunity is higher than mine. They're generally "pretty" clean though.
  • Car - dog hair! Otherwise, it's pretty clean.

1. How neat are the clothes you wear? Do you iron? Fold them promptly? Pull them out of the dirty laundry? Depends if I'm working or home! Anything that will wrinkle I will fold promptly, but the rest no. And I never ever iron.

2. How do you make your bed? Hospital corners? All over the floor? Or somewhere in between? I only have the fitted sheet and a bedspread on there so when I do make the bed it's just straightening the pillows and blanket.

3. Do you leave dirty dishes in your dishwasher? In the sink? On the counters? In other rooms? I rinse my dishes and put them in the dishwasher or sink until that night when they will get washed. My SO will leave them whereever and never rinses.

4. Are your floors clean enough to eat off of or is there an old science experiment growing in the corner? Somewhere in the middle, lol. They don't look dirty at all, but I wouldn't eat off of them, heh.

5. How clean is the outside of your car? How about the inside? Is there junk in your trunk? Outside is pretty clean, the inside is very cluttered with stuff that shouldn't be in there. Not much in the trunk, maybe the stroller and my cloth grocery bags.

I dont iron much, unless i just have to. i fold my clothes and hang them cleaned.

2. How do you make your bed? Hospital corners? All over the floor? Or somewhere in between?
When i make my bed...lol...i make it neat. I used to have a habit of doing hospital corners since i worked in a hospital...but
now i just make it neat and straight as fast as i can.


3. Do you leave dirty dishes in your dishwasher? In the sink? On the counters? In other rooms?
Me and DH try to keep dirty dishes rinsed and put in the dishwasher.

4. Are your floors clean enough to eat off of or is there an old science experiment growing in the corner?
I dont think you should eat off my floors, no, but they arent neccessarily nasty.

5. How clean is the outside of your car? How about the inside? Is there junk in your trunk?
The outside is a little dirty right now, the inside is a little messy too. Only thing in the trunk is a stroller.

1. How neat are the clothes you wear? Do you iron? Fold them promptly? Pull them out of the dirty laundry? I rarely iron. Generally if my clothes are wrinkled, I'll just toss them in the dryer for a few minutes. I fold right away, but sometimes I never get around to putting them back in the closet or drawers.

2. How do you make your bed? Hospital corners? All over the floor? Or somewhere in between? Unless someone is coming over, I just straighten it up enough that it looks fairly presentable.

3. Do you leave dirty dishes in your dishwasher? In the sink? On the counters? In other rooms? Ugh. No, but Ryan does and it drives me mad. Sometimes I forget about a glass or two, but he leaves things around constantly. Sometimes it takes us two days to fill up the dishwasher enough to run it.

4. Are your floors clean enough to eat off of or is there an old science experiment growing in the corner? There's probably some dog hair in the corner, but hopefully no science experiments. I sweep often, but I probably don't mop as often as I should.

5. How clean is the outside of your car? How about the inside? Is there junk in your trunk? The inside part is clean. The trunk is an entirely different story... There is always junk in my trunk.

1. How neat are the clothes you wear? Do you iron? Fold them promptly? Pull them out of the dirty laundry? I iron just about every day (most people know I am a neat freak and that includes mine, Justin and Marshall's clothes too). I do fold them right out of the dryer and put them away.

2. How do you make your bed? Hospital corners? All over the floor? Or somewhere in between? Hospital corners

3. Do you leave dirty dishes in your dishwasher? In the sink? On the counters? In other rooms? Dishwasher

4. Are your floors clean enough to eat off of or is there an old science experiment growing in the corner? Clean enough to eat off of - my mom's are too!

5. How clean is the outside of your car? How about the inside? Is there junk in your trunk? Just cleaned it again on Saturday, inside and out and put leather cleaner on the seats... THANK YOU JUSTIN FOR DOING IT!
