Cleaning the kitchen is definitely my least favorite chore, but NOTHING compares to the feeling of having a clean kitchen.

The kitchen is the heart of the home, and i hate a messy kitchen! I also hate harsh products:( Now cleaning isnt so bad at all! Especially now that I am learning more and more about more natural solutions!

Both! I love the smell while cleaning. I love the end result. But it's a dirty job that I don't look forward to doing.

I don't really care for cleaning the kitchen...cooking yes, dishes no. The worse thing to clean is the fridge...how do they get so yukky???

I feel like it's front line in defense against illness so it has great importance. When my kitchen is in order I just feel better and it's so much easier to work in a clean, organized space. I love being able to just walk in and start something when I get an idea. I guess I do like cleaning it!

I don't mind as long as I clean as I cook, but I hate when I leave it to do as one singular project. And I HATE cleaning up raw meat juice, like chicken.

I despise cleaning the kitchen! We own a bicycle shop in ND, where we're lucky if we get 3 good months of summer, so needless to say, we're on a limited budget. I clean with a homemade vinegar mixture but then the house smells like vinegar and it really doesn't feel that 'clean' to me. Plus, I come home from working 2 jobs and cleaning the kitchen is the last thing on my mind....that's why it usually waits until Sundays :]

Well, I consider myself a clean freak. I hate it when things are or get dirty. I have three children and are spending a lot of time in the kitchen for some reason. So yes, you can probably say, I love to clean my kitchen. Because I love and feel much better when everything is clean and it it's place. I actually get in a bad mood when I just cleaned something and somebody is messing it up again. It drives me crazy :-) Well, it is not as bad as it sounds :-) I guess, I would probably be bored if I don't have anything to clean. Wow, I would have so much more time though ;-)

Cleaning the kitchen is my morning "to do" before heading out the door to work each day. I like having my kitchen clean. After clearing the counters and washing the dishes I use the Seventh Generation Kitchen Cleaner (which smells like fresh lemons) then off I go. When I get home from work the kitchen is not the same (two kids and my husband have been busy) but at least I know I left it germ free for them to use at breakfast.

A sparkling kitchen counter is the definition of possibility. Who knows what might happen next? I love being in the kitchen; I love the excitement of infinite possibilities. Full cupboards, spice racks, and the clatter of dishware make my brain light up. I clean the kitchen happily because I want to create, over and over again, that fresh sense of potential. Sometimes I look at an overflowing sink of dirty dishes from cooking and hosting, and wonder why in God's name I don't have a dishwasher! But in the end, I get on with the task at hand and offer up a blessing for gifts of good food, good friends, and good living.

I love cleaning my kitchen -- love to get in the corners and get all the crumbs. I've been converting to green cleansers, and I love the fact that I can get cleaning products that don't have that harsh chemical smell. The one thing I'd love to see is a 7 Gen product that I can use in place of my Swiffer Wet. For now I clean my hardwoods with that because the mop is just way too much work.

I love cleaning the kitchen, every part except the part where I need to scrub the oven range. I could always want a pass on that since it is grimmey and dirty, and those cleaning gloves itch. Enter me in.

Can't say I enjoy it! Maybe I will again once I finish organizing the kitchen, but its hard with 5 kids around, online school, and numerous dr visits for my daughter.

I like cleaning in general, and the kitchen is a great place because I feel so satisfied when it's all clean.

I don't hate it. Not my favorite thing to clean but it always looks so good when it is clean!! I cannot wait to wash my dishes with the Lavender & Mint dish soap...it can make it such a tranquil experience. =)

I LOVE to clean the kitchen... and just about every other room in the house! It's like free therapy for me. It helps me wind down and relax. Weird, I know. :op I can be a little OCD about it, but hey, at least I have a clean house.

Yuck. I hate cleaning the kitchen and it always just gets messed up and dirty again in a couple of hours for the next meal.

I love to hate cleaning the kitchen. I love when it's clean, hate when it's not clean, hate to clean it but love when I'm done. I do try to clean as I go when I'm cooking to make it easier. Just one of those never ending chores - like laundry.

I hate dishes the most! They always seem to multiply even with doing at least one load a day. Of course, that could the fault of my ravenous children!

I don't love cleaning the kitchen but I don't hate it either! It has to be done and using 7th Generation products makes it easier and I know it's safe using them around my one year old!

I don't mind cleaning the kitchen when I am cleaning up after myself or from dinner time, BUT!!!!! When people (not mentioning names ....ugh!!) come in late at night to snack and leave crumbs and dirty dishes all over the place, then yeah, I do not like it then at all.

If given the choice between the litterbox and the kitchen I'd say I love cleaning the kitchen.

It's a love/hate sort of relationship. I love it clean, but I hate to do it.

I love the sparkle and sine my appliances and counter tops boast after a good cleaning, especially when i know it was cleaned with environmentally concious products that are safe to use around my 9 month old daughter and my fur-babies.

I love cleaning the kitchen. It's great when everything is organized and put away, and nice and clean. I do hate cleaning the oven though. I save that for the hubby!

I love cleaning the kitchen! It is so satisfying to watch things change instantly. As a human, especially a parent of a newborn, I never really know if what I am doing is working. When I finish cleaning the kitchen there is a nice smelling clean slate, no question. No nasty chemicals to worry if my newborn is watching, either.

I don't know what it is about a clean kitchen but it is a must and I do enjoy cleaning my kitchen. A must for me is a sparkling clean sink, wiped down appliances and a shiny countertops. There is something very simply satisfying about a sparkling kitchen...from there I can circle out into the rest of my house and clean it..but I always start at the kitchen... I think the main reason is that it is the heart of my home.

While I love to cook, I hate cleaning the kitchen, especially cleaning up the pots, pans and stove. Sometimes my husband does it, but he usually doesn't wipe the stovetop or countertops.

Cleaning the kitchen once was a chore and a bore. Don't get me wrong; I loved having a sparkling clean area to prepare meals for my family and friends, but the harsh chemical cleaners that choked me and left me wheezing and gasping for breath, well, those I hated! Since dicovering the SEVENTH GENERATION lifestyle, that love/hate relationship I'd been captive to for years is history. It's all love from here on out!
