    If you think that'll get me to vote for it, you're sadly mistaken. I will await the results of an FBI investigation into the question, albeit limited in time and scope.

    Where’s I actually sweep with a broom and a dust pan throw away debris then mop. And that is the truth.

    Why? Just telling the truth. That said, I vacuum the carpet.

    Neither have I, but I pretend the dog handle it :D

    But once in a while I do the really big cleaning in case the 'doggy' missed anything.
    Ah well, some vacuum cleaning in between.

    Don’t expect cat’s to participate in any cleaning of material things, they probably will be occupied with enhancing their beautifully fur instead.
    Or busy with giving any human around a makeover that they see fit, especially if they are sleeping.

    My cats would have helped eat some of the crumbs, but sans furry girls, I am a dust pan ma’am these days.

    I don't push anything under an appliance. What's missing in the poll is the option to sweep it up and remove it via a dust pan. I would think the majority of people do that when they clean their kitchen

    This is the sort of task that I outsource whenever and wherever possible.

    Will you come stay with me for a few days?

    I came up with a better solution. I don't sweep. I use the vacuum. Gets everything the first time. I hate dustpans.

    That's not real, that's disgusting. I'd rather not do anything that would promote any sort of invasion of cockroaches or other infestation. If I'm making an effort to clean the kitchen (which I do clean), then part of that is using a dust pan.

    Yeah....... When I clean, I do it right. No hiding of filth. It gets cleaned up properly and disposed of in the trash bin and then taken out to the dumpster.

    On the rare occasions these days when I carry out that task, I use a dustpan; however, I also tend to mutter, curse, and swear foul oaths while thus engaged. Suffice to say, I would never have made a casting call for those drippy 50s ads of the 'happy housewife'.

    Outsourcing in such matters works.

    Yeah hiding dirt/debris/filth is not cleaning, its just pushing the stuff to another location

    :p

    The happy housewives in those ads and shows probably cursed a plenty when being asked to present housework such as cleaning kitchens, floors and bathrooms as joyful. “The only reason why I am @&*%*# smiling, you’re paying me to.”

    I am with @maflynn on keeping the house bug free, unless you’re talking spiders and praying mantis. Those two are welcome in our home.

    If it were up to me, I’d get a Roomba or a cleaning service.

    I use a vacuum. Our kitchen like many is designed without dust and dirt traps underneath things. The units are sealed to the floor.

    Outsourcing is a fine option. I take advantage of it in both places.
