    My OH doesn't seem to understand how to clean properly and it's driving me mad! It's so pathetic that it makes me so angry but it really does piss me off, to the point where I feel enraged.

    He just doesn't ever do any cleaning properly, like it's always half arsed. He doesn't seem to understand how to wash dishes properly. I was tucking into my dinner earlier and halfway through I noticed I had 2 day old food stuck to my fork where he hadn't washed it properly everytime I get a cup out to have a drink if he's done the dishes it's normally still dirty where he hasn't washed it properly, so I have to wash it again. He also doesn't wipe the counters down and leaves cloths soaking in the dirty water.

    Ask him to peg out the washing, he doesn't peg it he just hangs it over the line. Found my clean clothes thrown around the back garden where the dog had got them and decided to use them as her new toy.

    Ask him to hoover, he doesn't.... I find him doing weird **** like hoovering the dog or the curtains or himself.

    Should I just give up and do all the cleaning myself? I have confronted him on numerous occasions about it and then he makes me feel like a massive cow because I think well atleast he's trying but is there any need to be such a retard about it?

    Am I alone in my struggle? help me!

    Sounds like you need relationship therapy.

    Maybe he's just a messier person then you? It probably bugs him less then it does you. It's not like he doesn't try either, but if you don't really care about something, you're not going to put any heart into it.

    Maybe feed him chocolates whenever he does it correctly, like positive reinforcement? :lol:

    Positive reinforcement is a good idea. Maybe I could make a chart with gold star stickers like they do with kids when they're potty training......

    Cleaning is a skill that needs to be learned. I used to be terrible at cleaning then I worked as a cleaner and got good. It takes practice to get the attention to detail of it. Before I did my cleaning job, I wouldn't even notice if something was dirty.

    He is perfectly capable of learning to clean, the question is, whether he wants to. I don't really have any advice but don't feel bad about nagging him. He can clean, he is just lazy.

    Not every man is as bad as me. Some are really good. A lot of men can actually cook some good food and can actually clean properly.
