Cleaning is a pain in the arse. It drives me nuts. Frankly, I don't think you should live in a cesspool of spillages and mould, but I think that, sometimes, cleaning is just an ego thing.
My kitchen sink keeps smelling.
Every week or so, I bleech it so it doesn't smell anymore but it starts to smell again by the end of the week.
My sink sucks.
How does they get there? I always wash and rinse my dishes after I eat so that they don't go rancid but, every week, there is guaranteed to be some fetid, stinking pile in the sink waiting to be washed covered in the remnants of the previous week's meals.
HOW DOES IT HAPPEN? I live alone, for Christ's sake.
