5 Cleaning Chores for the Reluctant Hubby


Cleaning the Bathroom

A little daily maintenance in each bathroom goes a long way. If you and your spouse can get in the habit of swishing some cleaner around the toilet bowl every morning and wiping down the sink, shower and toilet seat once a day, it's easier to avoid battles over whose turn it is to tackle two weeks' worth of mess -- especially if your definitions of "mess" seem to have come from two very different dictionaries.

To make things fair, share the initial cleanup task as evenly as you can, then switch off days (odds-and-evens works) until you find a cleanup groove that works for both of you. Once your husband has mastered this cleaning chore, the next one on the list will seem like a breeze.
