I brought this up in another topic and thought I would start a post about it.

 

I am just wondering if anyone else on the board if a neat freak, how much of a neat freak they are, and the things that annoy them the most (e.g. dirty dishes, laundry, dust etc.)

 

 

Personally I hate dust. This might because I suffered from allergies as a kid and had to keep my house as dust-free as humanly possible.

Oh, I hate dust. Don't do much about it, though. "A clean house is a sign of misspent life", as a saying goes. I'd rather browse cat photos than clean stuff, and we all know how that is a highly stimulating, mind invigorating and valuable life experience.

I am not clean freak, but I like my stuff to be clean from dust. I hate dust too, so cleaning my stuff regularly is now a routine work for me.

Not usually, no.  Would consider myself average as far as that goes.. clean it when I get to it or the wife complains, whichever comes first.  The one exception that really grinds my gears is a monitor with fingerprints.  Holy hell that irks me like you wouldn't believe, probably borderline OCD about it.

I am a clutter freak. I can't stand it. I want things nice and organized. But I am constantly cleaning my phone because those fingerprints worry me no end.

Haha, I went on a cleaning spree yesterday but normally I'm not much of a clean freak. I tend to vacuum/clean 2-3 times a week and dust on my glass entertainment systems/devices drives me nuts so that gets cleaned often. I'm now to the point where I don't open certain windows because I figured out most of the dust comes in there. I guess I enjoy the look and smell after I've cleaned top to bottom and then can relax!

I like things organized but not to an extreme. I have a two year old and my wife is in school full time so i've had to get accustomed to some degree of clutter. But as soon as he's in bead I have a standard route through the house starting with toys and then on to the kitchen. Dust doesnt bother me until I notice it, so I try not to look.

My place is a constant mess, doesn't worry me too much as I have too little time to worry about it. I keep the kitchen and bathroom clean for health reasons but

No, but whenever I look at my home and work desks I really wish I was.

Depends.  I hate having a cluttered work space.  But other areas I tend to let go longer than I should.

My stuff is a bit messy at the moment, but generally, my things stay clean and organized simply because I'm not a messy person. The funny thing is, at my job, I insist on having things clean and organized and clean up my area immediately upon arriving.

I wish I was cleaner than I am. Dirty clothes on the floor rather than in the hamper, dust collecting in the corridor, glasses to wash from the other night...I need a girl to kick my ass in to gear. :laugh:
