How clean are you?



I've noticed that a lot of people either have very clean cars, or clean houses, seldom do I see both. Which are you?

By clean cars, I mean interior and exterior:

No sunglasses, no bottles, no extra keys, no change, no nothing lying around, only what the car came with, and it's always like this, not just when you decide to clean it.




By clean room, I mean, nothing visible, no extra junk visible from sight, everything tucked hidden away, bed always made, looks like this everyday:

I'm just lazy but I like order. I let things pile up until the OCD overwhelms the laziness and I clean it up. When I do though it looks spotless and perfect. So I'm kind of none of the above. But I guess things spend more time in disorder than the other way around.

I voted clean house/clean car. My home and car are generally 90% spotless at all times. When guests come into either, they are 100% clean. Sometimes life just doesn't allow you to be spotless 24/7. Life isn't black and white. There should be grey areas to your question.

My e30 I keep clean. The interior is spotless, and there is no extra junk anywhere inside. Only thing I have is a laptop on the floor behind the driver seat so I can access my ECU. The outside is generally cleaned before I drive it out somewhere. Otherwise it does tend to collect a little dust being parked beside a few trees.

My daily Civic is pretty much a mess. Not nearly as bad as I've seen, but messy nonetheless. I blame my girl, it's her car and mostly her mess.

My place is generally on the cluttered side, but I go through spurts of cleanliness. Sometimes the mess overwhelms me and I spend a few hours going OCD on the place making sure everything is put away and everything is clean. But it usually only lasts a few days before the clutter starts to show up again. It's never actually dirty, just very occupied... haha.

my car, always clean, like it's in a showroom with nothing showing (except a small cloth/rag) in the door storage thing.

my room, besides my bed not being made, i rather sleep with the sheets messed up than neat, my room is spotless.

I don't think I'm messy everything has a place but there is always stuff around...I guess lived in would be the correct term for both my place and my car.

Im pretty clean/orginized, but once in a while, I let things get messy and then go on a spree and tidy it all up.

Presently, my exterior is clean, the interior is filthy.

I've seen your 318, a pile of water bottles and cigarette boxes in the back, filty!

Mine has up and downs, but i'd stay clean most of the time.

Now that i live on my own, the house stays clean.
When i lived with my parents, it was always a mess because of my younger siblings.
