Cinderella and Her Odious
Household Chores

1 Everyone knows how the story of Cinderella ends, but did you ever really think
about how she spent her days before she met the prince? Her daily routine was not
glamorous. She did everything from sweeping the floor to cooking the meals. If
someone had asked Cinderella, Are there any household chores that you
particularly hate? she probably would have answered, Why, none, of course.
Housework is my duty! In the real world, however, most people have definite
dislikes for certain household chores. The top three of these tasks include ironing
clothes, washing dishes, and cleaning the bathroom.

2 One of the most hated chores for many people is ironing clothes because it is
not a task that can be completed quickly or thoughtlessly. Each piece of clothing
must be handled individually, so ironing a basket of laundry can take hours! After
ironing a piece of clothing meticulously, which entails smoothing out the fabric,
following the seams, and getting the creases just right, it needs to be put on a
hanger as soon as possible. If not, this item might become wrinkled and need to be
ironed again. Perhaps that is why ironing is not a favorite chore. It requires extreme
attention to detail from beginning to end.
3 Another household chore that many people dislike is washing dishes. Of course,
some people claim that this chore is no longer a problem because dishwashers are
available now! However, no one would argue that dishes, silverware, and specially
pots and pans washed in a dishwasher come out as clean as they do when
washed by hand. For this reason, many people continue to wash their dishes by
hand, but they are not necessarily happy doing it. Washing dishes is a dirty job that
requires not only the elbow grease to scrape food off the dishes but also the
patience to rinse and dry them. In addition, unlike ironing clothes, washing dishes
is a chore that usually must be done every day. Regardless of how Cinderella felt
about this particular chore, it is obvious that most people do not enjoy doing it.
4 Though ironing clothes and washing dishes are not the most pleasant
household chores, perhaps the most dreaded is cleaning the bathroom. This
involved tackling three main areas: the bath tub, sink, and toilet. Because the
bathroom is full of germens, a quick wiping of the surfaces is not enough. As a
result, strong bathroom cleansers are necessary to clean and disinfect this room.
The task of cleaning the bathroom is so unpleasant that some people wear rubber
gloves when they attempt it. The only positive point about cleaning the bathroom is
that it does not have to be done on a daily basis.
