Would you rather clean the bathroom or the fridge?

I think I'm going to vote for the bathroom. How is it so easy for small containers from x time ago to hide behind the fresh stuff?

Fridge- any day of the week. Bathroom cleaning is a pain in the ass. I particularly hate
how difficult is is to clean crud off of the bathtub.

Bathroom. In the bathroom the worst is human waste, maybe strep and stuff. In the fridge there have been unknown life forms breeding.

The bathroom. I think I'm just more used to it. I don't like having to throw away food that's gone bad. It makes me feel wasteful.

I love cleaning both. If you keep it up on a regular basis (bathroom daily, fridge once a week) then it only takes a few minutes each time.

I'm a clean freak myself, I don't like cleaning but I hate a dirty bathroom more then anything in the world. When I was in college the dorm janitors did not clean the bathrooms very well at all, primarily because no one wanted the job. So I went to the head dean and said I'd clean them, so he gave me the job. My side of the dorm had the cleanest restrooms and showers, people would come from the other wings of dorm to use my restrooms.

As long as you want, and BTW, I think you are a bit low on potassium.

Bathroom. The fridge requires tedious removal and replacement of items, and the temperature differential between the components and the hot water is a *****. Especially the freezer -- as soon as the hot paper towel touches the frosty surface, the water chills and kills the solvency. Plus all your perishable items are sitting out in warm air for a period of time, which is an uncomfortable feeling.
