My last poll covered things that your SO may do that trouble you (or not):
This poll covers household chores… does your SO contribute to the household? Please only take this poll if you live together!
How does your SO stack up… is your SO a 0/10 or a 10/10?

i checked all of them except the tub/toilet one. And I’m sure he’d do that too, if I asked.

My SO is way, way more awesome about cleaning than I am. I do all the cooking (which I love; it’s more a hobby than a chore) and he cleans up after me. Admittedly, he puts it off for a day or two if we’re super busy, but always ends up doing it without me asking.
He usually does laundry, always vacuums. Mops because it makes me gag. Reminds me to dust when we clean the house together. He even folds his socks when putting away clothes! Often empties the dishwasher.
I clean the bathroom and am the only one that refills the ice cube trays, but I think that’s it. I’m so the man in this relationship. 😛

My SO makes me feel like a slob! He’s so good about doing laundry, the dishes etc. I’m so lucky!!

Mine is the more tidy one out of us, so he cleans the house way more than I do. The only responsibility I have that is only mine is the laundry. I just like it done a certain way and it takes longer, but if he did it he’s all about speed…so it became a me only job.

Mr. Sushi tries. We have a dish washer and while he doesn put dishes in the dishwasher, he usually only opens it far enough to stick plate in, which means I have to totally reorganize the dishwasher before turning it on. :oP He does put dishes away and will stick clothes in the washer (normally just his). He takes out the trash…when I remind him it’s full. LoL. He’s getting better though.

Call me old fashioned, but I spoil Mr. PG by doing the laundry and dishes regularly. I guess I’ve never minded doing them? We’ve been living together for 3 years.
I’ll admit that every now and then, he’ll start a load or do dishes to catch me off guard. =) So he does deserve some credit.

You didn’t have an option for not doing anything. I am not working right now, just taking one graduate class. He works full-time and goes to one graduate class. We mutually decided that I will take on the household chores. When I obtain gainful employment, we will go back to our regular cleaning schedule, where he does a ton.

When we first moved in together we had no set plan, I am a neat freak and he is not. After a couple of silly arguments we each picked what we would do, I LOVE doing laundry (LOL I know it’s weird) so I do laundry and general housekeeping chores, he does all trash duty, dishes(he also cooks I don’t), and cleans the litter box. If we are having company he will ask what he can do to help and if I need extra stuff done, he will jump to it knowing that I don’t badger him everyday about stuff.

My FI does his laundry and we both do the dishes (often as a team or one or the other will). He always does the trash. I pretty much do everything else, but he’ll help! Can’t complain too much!

I’m with Niki..I needed a none of the above box. I’m not working right now so I’m taking care of all household chores at the moment.

I asked him the other day–Um, when we’re married you’re not going to expect me to do all the laundry are you? He gave me THE most incredulous look and said, Are you crazy? We’d never have any clothes.
That pretty much sums up all of our cleaning differences. He’s tidy, I am…rather not. But he doesn’t nag, which I thoroughly appreciate, because he totally would be justified. ^_^

I checked off every one on the list except washing bras, which I insist on doing myself. Looks like we got us some great guys ladies!
