Why Do I Like Cleaning?

Is it just me that actually likes cleaning?

I can't help myself. I hate my house being messy and cannot leave things alone until everything is clean. Having children can make this hard work as it means that I am constantly running around after them tidying up but I don't mind. I love seeing my kids playing with their toys even if it does mean that I have more putting away to do once they've finished. 

It's not just me though as my husband loves cleaning too. Aside from the fact that he is a domestic supervisor in his day job, when he gets home, he will also be cleaning and making sure our house is tidy. The boys love to help out, especially where the washing and dusting is concerned.

During the daytime, it is just Charlie and myself and we take no time at all in getting the cleaning stuff out. Charlie knows where we keep the duster and that is usually the first thing to come out. That and the Vacuum of course. What child doesn't like paying with the vacuum, riding around the room on top of it is super fun when you're 2 year old. 

We have a huge range of cleaning products to keep our house in tip top shape. From sprays for the kitchen and bathrooms, creams, steamers, stain removers, squidgy's, and floor care just to name a few. 

Of course none of the boys touch these items though but they do love helping to do the washing. Loading and unloading the washing machine and then filling the tumble dryer afterwards. Even helping to fold after it's done, although their folding might not be what I'd call suitable at least they try and help. I like to get all of the washing done and then pile the ironing up so I have quite a fair amount before starting it as that is the only part I hate and prefer to get rid of it in one go. 

Is it just me though? Am I the only person who actually likes to get down and dirty with the scrubbing brush? Do you stock up on cleaning supplies to keep the house squeaky clean?
