Don’t Look In My Oven – It’s Filthy [Poll]
If not for my wife, I’d live in a dump. And she’s probably right. Before I was married, I probably vacuumed once per month (sometimes less) and I don’t recall ever washing the outside of a window or even looking in my oven any longer than it took to take out a frozen pizza.
Apparently, I’m not alone. A recent survey says that 27 %of us don’t clean windows and 23% of us don’t ever get around to cleaning an oven. I’m okay with that. Of all the surfaces in the house, I have to think that the oven takes care of itself. Any bacteria that might get a chance to cultivate between uses has die off each time you fire it up, right? So why bother? (Disclaimer – I am NOT a scientist or a doctor. Consult a professional if you must know what lives in your oven, or whether or not it can kill you.)
No matter where you fall in “the numbers” I think it’s universal that married couples have different ideas of what clean is. My wife likes to vacuum every day. I think that once per week ought to do the trick. Then again, if not for my wife, I’d live in a dump.
