Compared to other chores around the house, cleaning the bathroom is the job that seems to be the most unpleasant. Other household chores appear to be easy compared to the work involved in scrubbing the toilet, cleaning glass, removing build-up on counters, and mopping the floor in this area of the house. And then, there's the bathtub.

Otherwise, you may end up scrubbing and cleaning for way longer than necessary to complete the task.
